I read one of Karen’s latest blog posts about how we move forward. I tend to push myself forward (you should do this, you shouldn’t do that, you need to, etc.) and I can feel the negative reaction in my body to hearing those words.
I do much better when I see something or think of something I want, and I go forward with excitement and eagerness.
There is a clear difference!
I have been making an effort to eliminate the “should” and “need to” attitude, I even try not to use those words as she suggested. I try to replace them with “I want to” and “I’d like to”. It really does release the urgency and opens my mind.
It pulls me forward…
I am drawn to many things, I have gotten very curious, and I get bogged down when I start to “should” myself.
Do you “should” yourself? Do you think it will be hard to eliminate that word from your vocabulary?
