Probably one of my favorite laws that Dave Asprey talks about in his book Game Changers, because it teaches you the concept that you can hack your energy with words.
What Dave actually says is “when you say you’ll try, you’re lying to yourself”. I would have to agree.
You see part of dealing with a burnt out, exhausted, fatigued, inability to handle your daily tasks problem, is the fact that plain and simply, you have a demand and supply problem.
Meaning, your body is unable to produce energy (supply) at a rate that can keep up with demands. But what does that have to do with the words that you choose?
Well, words are energy. Dave calls certain words, “weasel words”.
Using these words are destructive, robs you of power, and innovative thinking.
But, what do words have to do with an adrenal problem?
Remember, the stress response system, the brain, the adrenals, and the tissues that are involved with cortisol and the stress hormones go to all the tissues in the body.
Where the words you choose impact your stress system, your adrenals, and create a demand and supply problem, is when there is an incongruency between your subconscious brain and consciousness brain.
Take the word “try” for example. When you say try, you are already hedging your bet. You may give the ole college effort, but you are telling your subconscious that you aren’t decisive or certain about it.
On one level, your conscious brain attempt something, your subconscious brain is set up an expectation of failure.
With this incongruency, your body is experiencing internal stress.
Game changer law 3, hack your energy with words.
Work on having congruency between what you say and what you do. On both a conscious and subconscious level.
Not only will this keep integrity with yourself, but you will also no longer feel burnt out or stressed. Easy peasy.
