Weekly Food for Thought – Get To vs. Got To

‘Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life’ ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Dear Friends,

It has been amazing few weeks! Tons of moments for which I am eternally grateful to God, the Universe, and everything and everyone else that contributed and continue to contribute to my growing and enjoying this cycle of human experience called Life!

I spent five days with my peers, saw some old friends and made some new ones! I saw some 5000 people take their lives to a new level, and switching from  a ‘got to’ attitude to a ‘get to’ attitude!

The difference that makes the difference

And it is this seemingly small semantic trick that makes a whole lot of difference on the quality of our lives.  Time and again, focus and language prove to be key players in how our lives pan out.

You see, when we say I ‘got to’ do something, something within us shifts, and our Unconscious becomes lazy, lethargic, starts looking for excuses not to do it and seeks out an escape route.

Why?! Because, ‘got to’ carries with it an ‘i-don’t-want-to-but-i-have-to’ kind of message, and we automatically switch into a gear that takes us to an unresourceful l state that is filled with excuses and strategies for an easy way out:-)!

How about switching to a ‘get to’!? ‘Get to’ carries with it a whole spectrum of possibilities! When we say ‘I get to’ do something, we can expect an instant shift in our focus, our state, our physiology and therefore our performance!  We become more curious, more alive! And we only changed one little vowel;-)! Not bad, hey?!

Tomorrow, I’ll GET TO climb a mountain… What will you GET TO do this weekend…and beyond?!

Wishing you a fabulous weekend,
