I am eager to share something I have discovered in the past few days. I am certain that I have found a word that we will ALL benefit from if we remove it from our everyday conversations. Removing this word will lead to increased happiness, clarity and self-love.
Do you feel overwhelmed, stressed or doubtful at times?
If so, then I know that you WILL gain immense benefit from reading this article!
Let’s get to it – the 3 letter word is ‘TRY’. Sound familiar?
Many people use the word ‘try’ in response to requests that they do not want to do. For example – I’ll try to find time to do this. I’ll try to do my best. I’ll try to go to your party. The list goes on…
When you say ‘try’, you do not hold clarity to what you want to achieve. The word ‘try’ is filled with doubt and uncertainty. When you use the word ‘try’, you are essentially saying “I will attempt, but whatever the outcome is – I don’t really mind. I have embraced the possibility of failure, and if my attempt leads to failure, then so be it.” Well, if you expect failure, then according to Universal Laws, failure will be delivered to you.
So many people use the word ‘try’, when what they really mean is ‘no’.
They may be afraid of hurting someone’s feelings if they say no. The reality is, so many people would appreciate and benefit from you saying “no”, instead of you giving a vague, foggy, uncertain answer! Saying ‘no’ gives the person you are talking to a clear view of where you are heading and what your opinions are, and they will respect you for it!
Having clarity and letting other people understand what you believe in will definitely decrease your stress and doubt. When you are doing the things you do because you truly love it and because you truly want to, you are bound to be blissful.
Confession time – I am guilty for using this word, but I am definitely weeding it out of my everyday conversations.
Here’s a challenge – let’s all stop using this 3 letter word. Say yes or say no. Do or do not. There is no try!
1. Replace the word ‘try’ with will/can/yes/no, or just eliminate it! (Example: I will try to do this. –> I will (or will not) do this.)
2. When you catch yourself saying it, don’t worry – all is well! Just rephrase your sentence, without the word ‘try’ in it!
3. Once you do this, report back! Please let me know how you feel – do you feel less stressed, more freedom, much happier?
In the comments below, let me know – do you use this 3 letter word a lot? If you have already removed it from your daily conversations, how do you feel? Are there any other words or phrases that you think we will benefit from if we remove them from our daily conversations? Please do share – I’d love to hear from you!
