I recall, my mentor once looking at me and saying:

Oh, you have a challenge?

I say: I have a huge problem! (my hands showing the size of the problem)

He says with a smile: A challenge, yeah?

I let out a sigh and noticed that my hands had come closer together. The word, ‘challenge’ replaced, ‘problem’ and its dimensions and his smile made my dark feelings better.

That day, I realized that as a Life Coach I was to pay attention to WORDS! WORDS have POWER and POWER to CREATE MY REALITY!

A minor tweak here and there, I not only felt better but also realized that I was playing with a football when all it was, was a ping pong ball!


For example:

Actual:  It’s such a gloomy day and I feel so sad!

Change: I can have a steaming cup and feel warm again!

Actual:   My boss is such a grumpy person; he annoys me!

Change:  My boss resembles one of the seven dwarves that now I find him as a part of fairy tale that will end happily!

QUIZ: Now try this…Transform these to see how it feels different!

  1. My presentation is just not up to the mark; I can’t impress anyone
  2. The kids are just failing at their studies; I must be a bad mom
  3. My health is mostly average
  4. Life isn’t fun anymore
  5. Why don’t people understand me the way I am?
