Mindset Hacks: The Difference Between ‘Have To and Get To’…

Mindset Hacks: The Difference Between ‘Have To and Get To’…

Let’s quickly talk about a subtle shift in the way you talk to yourself that can have a significant impact on your life. It’s often these little tweaks in our life that bring about the greatest rewards.

One of the simplest tweaks to implement is recognizing when you are saying “I Have to…” when doing something, such as “I have to go to work”…

and then simply just tweaking it just a little bit.

Changing it to “I get to..” might seem a little weird on the surface. However, when your brain hears that you GET TO do something, it becomes more excited.

Yes, even if its something like ” I get to go to work…”

The thing is, if you have the opportunity to work and have a job, or business like myself, you are extremely blessed. Many people around the world don’t have that opportunity.

In fact, a large percentage of the worldwide population will never have the opportunities that you currently have.

Crazy to think about, right?

Well that’s what this little tweak is about. It’s a little way to condition your mind into being more comfortable with gratitude and will lead to changes in the coming months.

Don’t worry if you find yourself saying “I have to…” it still happens to me from time to time. When you do catch yourself saying it, recognize that you said it and then consciously make an effort to re-state the statement with “I get to…” or “I want to…” and re-state that statement with that intention.

I hope this helps! Have a great day,
Chris
