Can you… or Will you? When you are communicating with others, the difference between Can and Will is HUGE!!
Time for some more power words. In this video we’re going to talk about will versus can.
I’d like you to consider the following statement; “I can improve my performance.” versus “I will improve my performance.”
Which is more powerful, can, or will? Will is much more powerful.
Think about it from this perspective. I can improve my performance. I may not, but I can. I know how to do it, versus I will improve my performance. It’s much more declarative, as in, yes, I will do it.
Now, to make it even stronger, what if we put a time boundary on it? I will improve my performance by the end of the year. I will achieve my goals by January 1st. Now you’ve declared you will do it, and you put a time frame on it. That has just become a goal. Can is weak.
Can is: I have the ability to.
Will is: yes, I will.
I will do it.
Will you do what it takes to refine your speaking, so you can be more effective and powerful?
I know you will, because you’re watching this.
