How To Use Positive Language To Inspire and Motivate

Have you ever noticed how a simple shift in language can completely change the way you feel?

Instead of saying “I can’t” saying “I can” can transform a situation from one of helplessness to one of possibility.

Let’s have a look how we can bring more positivity into our lives!

 

Words we might like to be careful with Positive words
I don’t know (I’m not willing or able to help you further.) I’ll see if I can find out (I’m willing to take action and try to help.)
I’ll try (Can sound as if you’re not sure if you can do something, or that you’re not fully committed to doing it.) I can (you’re confident that you can accomplish the task and that you’re fully committed to doing it.)
You must (Can sound like you’re giving a command or an order.) If you can (You’re giving the other person a choice and allowing them to make their own decision.)
You should (Can sound like you’re giving a command or an order.) You could try (You’re giving the other person a suggestion or an option.)
You have to (can sound like you’re giving a command or an order) May I suggest that (You’re offering a suggestion or an option.)

We know using positive language can help build stronger relationships, foster more productive conversations, and create a more positive environment.

It’s worth practising, don’t you think?
