The Only Time You Should Say “Don’t”

Don’t is powerful. It’s more powerful than can’t.

We can change “can’t” with attitude and hard work, but “don’t” is different.

In this case, I specifically mean “I don’t.” As in:

I don’t miss a workout.

I don’t skip meditation.

I don’t eat junk food.

When we say the words “I don’t,” we somehow pull meaning from deep within us. It’s suddenly a powerful belief inside.

“I don’t” translates to “I’m not the kind of person who . . .”

Next time you want to confront a temptation or stir up some intrinsic motivation, try saying “I don’t.”
