Stop using the word “try”

People who use the word “try” a lot usually don’ t accomplish much.

YODA WAS RIGHT: “There is no try. Only do, and do not.”

So, instead of “trying,” consider modifying your vocabulary with these substitutes:

1. I am…
2. I will…
3. I intend to…
4. My goal is to…
5. I’ll give it my best…
6. I’m getting better at…
7. I did the best I could…
8. I will make an effort to…
9. I’m making progress on…

REMEMBER: The more often you use the word “try,” the less progress you actually make.

LET ME ASK YA THIS...
How often do you use the word "try"?

LET ME SUGGEST THIS...
Stop trying, start doing.
