I was listening to a podcast the other day, and a guest talked about changing our thoughts from “I HAVE to” to “I GET to”, and that idea really resonated with me - changing one word in a phrase we use all the time can put a very different perspective onto our lives.
So today, instead of having to do some work, having to exercise and having to record a YouTube video, I get to plan my workload, I get to enjoy a lovely walk, and I get to improve my video creation skills.
What do you get to do today….?
Having the right mindset really makes all the difference to how your day will go - on the day that I wrote this, the 'I get to' idea really helped me to be more productive and more positive.
We all have a choice in how we handle the day - some days are pretty fixed, others can be rescheduled on a whim - but we can always exert a level of control on the day with our mindset; you get choose to resent the things that you have to do, or you get look at every situation as a learning experience.
The choice is yours....
