Phrase this Week: “I solve my problems like puzzles. Nothing is too hard or impossible for me because I tackle difficulties with gratitude.”

High performers believe their potential is unlimited. They recognize their limiting beliefs and condition themselves to move their vision to new heights. They level up their beliefs to change their future and experience.

Power Phrase this Week: “I attack the process it takes for me to reach my highest potential. I let go of the outcome or result and keep my focused on my how each day.”

High performers are intentional with their self-talk. They think “I can…” to reach their potential. They are honest with themselves and when they think “I can’t…”, they ask themselves if they are willing to do the work to change it to “I can….”. This is important because when we are think “I can’t…” we really mean “I won’t.”
Power Phrase this Week: “I believe that I can! I change my can’t into cans to help me reach my big plans.”
