You see, the fact is that your words are a physical manifestation of your thoughts.

I can spend all the time in the world thinking positively… But if I am not also making an effort to reflect my positive intentions in the words I say, it would be like going to the gym to loose weight while still eating all of the junk food I wanted. Chances are I am not going to get the results I wanted.

What I have discovered is if I want to live my life to its highest potential and have the power to turn my goals into my living, breathing reality… I will see faster results if I make an effort to be more mindful of the words that I use when speaking to myself and to others. I want to share something I have learned to help me do just that. Here are 2 words or phrases I have eliminated from my vocabulary as much as possible and would recommend you do also so you can get the best possible results of your manifesting.

1) Eliminate the words “I can’t.”

“I can’t” are some of the most self-limiting words you can use. There’s a great quote by Henry Ford that explains why: “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

What you say, you will experience. Your words are your thoughts in motion, and they shape the reality around you. So when you use the words “I can’t,” guess what? You will manifest a situation in which you can’t do something!

Best-selling author Jack Canfield does an experiment at his live events that proves this. He gets volunteers from the audience to stand up and extend their arms to either side. Then, Jack tells the volunteers to think either “I can” or “I can’t.” When he tries to push down the arms of the people who think “I can,” their arms don’t budge. Almost like they were made of concrete! But when he tries to push down the arms of the people who think “I can’t,” he’s able to push their arms like a knife through butter.

So if that’s what’s possible just by THINKING “I can” or “I can’t,” imagine what you manifest by verbally speaking those words! You will manifest what you think about and what you speak about. So if you find yourself saying “I can’t,” the Universe will deliver up situations to you in which you find you can’t do something.

2) Eliminate the words “I don’t know.”

This is a phrase that A LOT of people use throughout the day. Say this repeatedly and you’ll continuously manifest situations where you find yourself unable to move from point A to point B because you just don’t know, or you draw a blank, or you just can’t find the answers. If you find yourself saying either “I can’t” or “I don’t know,” stop yourself and try rephrasing what you’ve just said.

So for example, if you catch yourself saying “I can’t make it to the gym today because I’m too busy,” reframe that statement by saying instead: “I’m really looking forward to giving it my all at the gym tomorrow!”

If you find yourself saying “I don’t know,” consider reframing that into “I don’t have the answer right now but I will ask someone or do some research and find out.”

Your words are immensely powerful, so use your language to manifest that which you wish to create!
