JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 88 :: the lens of joy

31 Mar
{see it}

People ask me how I keep blogging, every single day, for eight years now. I usually answer that it’s because I made a promise to myself. So I don’t miss a day. And now I have the research to back it up.  This article is an excerpt from The Motivation Myth by Jeff Haden. And it explains the power of two words.

I can’t.
vs.
I don’t.

If you have a goal in mind, something you want to do, or a promise you want to keep, you should take a quick read. Replacing one word in your vocabulary can make all the difference.

Which is why I DON’T miss a day on this blog. It’s in the words I use with myself. It is the lens that I see the world through.

I believe that words are powerful medicine. Now I know they are guideposts too.
Change your words. Change your life.
And find your joy!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
