If you find yourself saying these things, STOP Ė before itís
How you talk (to yourself and others) is vital for your success.
Do you say the right things?
Hereís what to avoid saying (the best one is at the end BTW)Ö
* It canít be done
Unsuccessful people say things canít be done. History is
littered with people who did things that couldnít be done.
In order to be successful you often have to innovate. You
cannot innovate without believing you can do something that
hasnít been done before.
* I canítÖ
Donít let your abilities stop you. Learn a new skill, or
hire someone to do it. Bill Gates stopped programming in
the 80's, and paid more talented programmers to do it for
* I can do it all myself
Maybe you can, but if you do, you are likely to become a
one man band running a small business. Sometimes you need
to outsource to specialists who are better than you at
* Donít trust anyone
Trust is vital when running a business. Lack of trust will
hold you back. You will be too fearful to do anything.
You must trust employees if you want to get the best out of
them. You must trust customers not to abuse guarantees. And
you must trust in your own abilities.
* Iím frightened of criticism
If you become successful, you WILL receive criticism.
Someone will disagree with something you do. Listen and
learn, but donít let it stop you pursuing your plan of
* Iím right, youíre wrong
You canít be right ALL the time. It doesnít make you look
weak admitting youíre wrong. It makes you look strong. It
also gives you the opportunity to learn from other peoplesí
* I like to please everyone
Many people fail because they try to please everyone. If
you do then you are likely to get nowhere. For example,
people in your life will probably want you to play safe and
get a ďproper jobĒ. If you please them you wonít go far.
Everyone has there differing opinions as to what you should do.
Listen to them, but find your own way.
* Itís too risky
You canít be successful without taking some risks.
Donít be reckless, but be prepared to take a chance.
* Itís not my fault
Thereís nothing wrong with things going wrong Ė at least
youíre trying. Things ALWAYS go wrong. Learn from them and
laugh at them. Itís how you handle them that counts. If you
are fearful of mistakes, then you will be too afraid to try
Also if you donít take responsibility for things going
wrong, then it implies that those around you are wrong.
This is not the way to build team unity.
* Iíll be successful one day
ďOne dayĒ never happens. Convince yourself you are
successful NOW, and be grateful for all you have, and all
