Top 7 Demotivating  English Phrases to Get Rid of

Demotivating English Phrases

It is your statements that create your reality. If you deny the possibility of something (love, success, etc.) in your life, then you shouldn’t complain about fate, that everything goes wrong for you, and only black stripes flash across your path. In order to achieve harmony, happiness, and success in life, you must remove demotivating phrases that hinder you. We will discuss in this article the top 7 demotivating phrases you should avoid in your daily life. 

1. “Maybe”

As a result of using this phrase in your phrases, you deliberately leave yourself a loophole for retreat, resulting in your “maybe” quickly becoming “never”. If you say, for example, that maybe from next week you’ll finally start running in the morning, you set yourself up for the possibility that it might or might not happen. Your use of the word “maybe” or its analog “maybe” confirms your lack of confidence in something (your strengths, abilities, success, etc.), and therefore sets yourself up for a poor outcome in the business you have planned.

2. “Never”

There is the golden rule that you must not categorically deny anything but must chop it off as an unquestionable fact. Over time, your position may change or circumstances may vary, resulting in an event or action you thought was impossible becoming quite real. Secondly, life is much more complicated than black and white, and no one knows what zigzag fate may unfold for you in it. There are no absolutes in everything. Allow yourself to consider the possibility of a new horizon rather than preventing it from becoming a reality. Don’t take your omnipotence for granted!

3. “I’m sorry that…”

Regrets about unfulfilled dreams, non-recurring events, or past mistakes are likely to add negative energy to your life and are unlikely to be a source of happiness or success in the future. Every year of life changes you, makes you reevaluate the events of the past, and you should only benefit from them so that you do not repeat stupid mistakes in the future, but you should not get hung up on all your failures, smoothly projecting them onto any actual events that occur. Continuously using “I’m sorry that …” makes you seem like a squirrel, tirelessly running in circles of failure.

4. “Not at all”

It is another harmful phrase that can cause you a lot of trouble. When someone expresses their gratitude for helping you with something, you should not use this combination. Rather than such a wording, replace it with the less promising “please”. The problem is that your help will be seen as a trifling matter that did not take up too much of your time, but in reality, you could have spent much more time-solving someone else’s problems. Moreover, if you fulfill someone else’s duties under the pretext of helping in the process of work, you are unlikely to find a proper assessment of your angelic virtue, except that other people’s duties will be transferred to you without any due gratitude and additional payment.

5. “Tomorrow”

Tomorrow is seldom meant to mean anything but things that will never come to pass since one day will follow another, and your “tomorrow” will never arrive. Around 80% of what is planned “for tomorrow” never gets accomplished, despite the fact that most of it can be accomplished even when useless promises are made. You can break this bad habit by learning to accurately assess your capabilities in terms of time frames, avoid promising the impossible, and avoid leaving most of the planned tasks for the far future.

6. “Impossible”

The wording “never” is also somewhat demotivating. You can achieve anything as long as you don’t limit yourself. In reality, your belief that losing weight or learning a foreign language is impossible will become your main limitation, while your desire and efforts could lead you to your desired success. Any phrase that begins with “impossible” is nothing more than to justify your laziness. Get rid of this word from your vocabulary, and dare to fulfill any dream you have!

7. “Accidentally”

One more grandiose excuse for any occasion, which you should ditch immediately because by asserting it, you transfer responsibility for your fate to others’ shoulders, and then you are not responsible for everything in your life not working out as you planned. Learn to accept responsibility for any action you take without hiding your head like an ostrich in danger, in the hope that you will be able to avoid trouble in the future.
