how are you?
« on: 18/05/2010 20:42:38 »


"how are you today" can be repeated millions of time a day   but asking "how will you be tomorrow"  preoccupies few people

how can you understand such a phrase?

Not many people think about the future these days. I think it presents too much uncertainty. My parents generation could see themselves in a job for life, bringing up children and having a reasonable retirement. Most people of my generation don't know what is around the corner. "Will I be made redundant? Will I divorce? Will my kids have a future on an uncertain planet? I don't have much of a pension plan so how will I live when I'm old?"
People live for the day so asking about tomorrow is not a good plan.
I do know a few people that are into life planning and cosmic ordering but I'm a pessimist so it doesn't work for me.

pessimism  is really sad, I know your feeling  because I my self used to be pessimist most of the time but this year I've learned a new thing :  to project the positivity in the future and you'll get the positivity as a result. I mean many things in our lives can be ameliorated since we are the most intelligent creatures on earth take the example on kaisen, I'm just imagining the people all over the world king kaisen into their consideration ... continuous amelioration.

the new verb that I've learned this year is to positivate

Argh!!  >:(

I think that the English language will be better off without this new 'verb' and I'd advise you to unlearn it as quickly as possible.

as you like LeeE , but I like this verb  :)

plz every body take a look at this ....

“But, I can’t because….”

Have you ever heard hear someone say this statement, “but, I can’t because.” Maybe you’ve even said it a few times yourself. Either way, it is a powerful statement that can change the direction of all the words that follow it.
Test this out for yourself the next time you notice someone saying this statement. Very often that “something” that people are telling you that they cannot do is the very something that they want to do. For example, “I want another job, but I can’t because…” Or “I want to get a new car, but I can’t because…” or “I want a (fill in the blank) but I can’t because...” If you pay close attention you’ll also notice that some people will even argue with you, someone else, for all the reasons why they cannot have the very thing they want in their lives. Do not argue with people about this because the more energy they put into the argument, the more they are convinced they cannot achieve it. And in a sense, it is the truth. It is their truth in that moment in time. Try honoring their truth. People are much more likely to make changes in their lives when you respect where they are, whether you agree with their position or not.
If you catch yourself saying “I can’t because…” here's a simple series of Change Your Life Coaching Tip(s) that will, with regular practice, dramatically transform your life.
When you catch yourself saying, “but, I can’t because” congratulate yourself because you’ve already encountered step one; awareness that you’re saying it. The next step is to be gentle and patient with yourself. It’s ok if you said it. It’s not a bad thing to make the statement, just realize where it’s taking you.
The next step is to choose a different statement that is more empowering. One suggestion is to replace it with the statement “and, I can because...” It’s ok if you don’t fully believe it, just go with it and see what you start to say after that statement; before you know it you’ll be making arguments for all the reasons why you can have what you want.

Nope - I still agree with Lee - it's an awful word especially repeated that many times.
