Forget About The Buts, Embrace The Ands

Whenever you add the word ‘but’ into a sentence, you automatically give yourself an excuse.

‘I’d like to get fit BUT…I don’t have much time.’

‘I’d like to save more money BUT…I have all these unplanned expenses.’

Try this instead…

‘I’d like to get fit AND I don’t have much time’

All of a sudden now you have a problem that can be solved.

You may not have 2 hours to hit the gym.

But you can run up the stairs at work instead of taking the lift.

It’s not the same. But it’s a start.

So, try turning your problem statement into an opportunity statement.
