Several months ago, I experienced an “AHA” moment while on the phone with a very close friend. The two of us were catching up on our lives, like we normally do once a year since careers divided us geographically in two states.

She shared with me that she had been doing something powerful with her girls, ages 8 and 12. She told me she teaches them to add the word YET to the end of their sentences beginning with “I can’t”. She also told me that every member in the family practices this.

When a person says they can’t do something, it triggers a response that they will never be able to do that thing and it’s not within reach. However, when YET is added to the end of the sentence, it immediately shifts the belief into something that will happen in the future (with action).

“I can’t do gymnastics YET.”

“I can’t tread water YET.”

“I can’t run 3 miles YET.”

Adding the word YET to the end of the sentence is the belief that things can and will change.

What is your YET statement?
