My name is Liza Benedict Sharp and I am an intentional and intuitive life coach.
That means I get to work with folks and help them shift their lives from lives that they are living by default to lives that they are living by design. And one of the ways that I encourage others to do this and have learned to do this myself is by shifting my language.
You see, language carries with it an energy. And so when we say certain things, we will feel certain ways. Let me give you an example.
For instance, the words “should” and “have to”, “I should do this” or “I have to do that.” I want you to think about the energy that those words have.
“I should do it.” “I need to do it.” “I have to do it.” That is a really negative energy that you are not only carrying with you, but that you are putting on to that situation.
And I want to challenge you to think about how you could shift that energy.
Now, you may say “There are things in my life Liza that I have to do!” and I want to challenge you to think about that. Do you actually have a choice in the things of your life? And I would encourage you that you do.
Let’s take an example of picking your kids up from school. So you might say “I have to pick up my kids after school” or you might say “I should pick up my kids after school.” And that carries with it that negative energy. I want you to begin to tweak your language in just a small and exciting way, and that is to change it to saying something like “I get to pick up my kids after school.”
Think of the energy of that.
I get to I get to pick them up.
I get to be the one who sees them right after school.
I get to ask them questions.
I get to encourage them.
I get to give them a hug.
I get to has a very different energy than I should. When we put all of these “shoulds” and “have tos” in our lives, we are shoulding all over ourselves. It is that negative energy, that guilt, that victimhood.
The truth is you have choice and you get to choose your language and your choices, and that will shift your energy and your momentum.
And when you shift your energy and momentum, you will start to get things done.
And that, my friend, is not making just a shift to your language. It’s making a shift to your life.
I’ve put together a worksheet for you, of little tweaks and languages that I have noticed along the way that I get to make. And I have helped others make those as well. These are just some of the shifts you can make in your language choices. And I encourage you to start with one.
So there is a little bit of a worksheet along with this information for you. And I encourage you not only to shift your language, but to begin to shift your life to one that you get to live by design.
