Get Rid of the Term, “I Should Have” and Move Forward Quicker

This week’s Vlog discusses the destructive habit of using the term, “I should have.”

Not only does this term do you no good in terms of moving forward, but it actually keeps you stuck. “Should” is an instrument of regret and guilt.

Click on the image below to watch this week’s Vlog and learn how to flip this term into
something more effective for change and improvement.

Beating up on yourself by saying, “I should go to the gym,” “I should have started sooner,” “I should have said ‘no’,” “I should have tried harder,” or “I should have ordered a salad,” is self sabotaging. It keeps you stuck in the past and causes you to have a negative self image of who you are as a person.

Keep the emotion out of past mistakes by removing the term “should have” and replacing it with “could have.” This keeps things in perspective by viewing it as factual, versus assigning judgement and blame.

What People Are Saying:

Coaching with Edie has been a very positive and motivating experience for me.  Things I kept putting off became my focus, I took action, and accomplished them very quickly with just her asking the RIGHT questions.  I have written down my goals - something I normally don't like to do - and I am seeing my goals being met on a weekly and monthly basis.  When I didn't meet a specific goal I had for the week, she completely took a positive side and we moved forward for the next week.  I knew what I wanted in my life, I just wasn't focusing or putting it to action like I am now.  Thank you Edie for your support, positive influence and the nudges from behind!

Edie really helped me gain a lot of insight into my professional and personal life. It was an eye-opening experience. I look forward to achieving some of the goals that we talked about, and I am confident that I will achieve them with Edie's support and guidance.
