The Vocabulary of Success


WEEK 1 – APRIL 2005

Greetings come this week from the Gold Coast, Queensland where I am working as a Trainer for Anthony Robbins for 8 days.


How we talk to ourselves – the specific words we use – controls the way we think. And the way we think controls how we feel and what we do. If say you’re ‘angry,” ‘failed,’ and ‘devastated.’ what kinds of feelings are you going to have? What kinds of questions will you be asking yourself? What will you be focusing on? Won’t your blood pressure be going through the roof?

But suppose, instead of ‘angry,’ you are ‘peeved’?  Instead of ‘overwhelmed,” you are ‘in demand’?  Instead of “irritated”, you are “stimulated”, Instead of “failed”, you have “learned something valuable’?  Instead of “rejected”, you are “misunderstood”?  And instead of “devastated”, you are mildly annoyed”?  Do you think you would start feeling different? You’d better believe it”.
Anthony Robbins

Words really do have the power to change how we feel.
Try it and have an absolutely sensational week. I can sure say I am.
