Do you find yourself being negative? Having a bad day? Just down in the dumps? When was the last time you said, “I have to go to work” or “I have to clean the house” or “I have to work out”? Saying ‘I have to’ puts a negative spin on it. Instead, just say “I get to!”
It's something that companies like Life Is Good, which sends positive messages through all kinds of apparel and goods, encourage their employees and customers to do.
Here's why it works: "'I have to' sounds like a burden. 'I get to' is an opportunity. And our brain responds very powerfully to the way we use language when we talk and the way we use language in our thoughts."
So…go get to!
