Have vs. Get

J.K. Rowling wrote, “Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.” How we speak to ourselves and others shapes our entire world, affecting how we think, behave and act.

Just on our own, we have an average 48.6 thoughts per minute, adding up to a total of 70 000 per day. The nature of those thoughts triggers how we view the world. Choosing the words we use influences how we will feel towards the opportunities and challenges we face.

It’s the difference between have and get. Do you have to go to that meeting to discuss a new project, or do you get to go and see how you can add your skill and expertise to create something great? Do you have to talk to the upset client, or do you get the opportunity to help them and show them you’re in their corner?

Choose your words carefully, they become your reality.
