Stop Putting Yourself Down by Cutting ‘Just’ from Your Life

Filed under: Motivation — by at 8:50 pm on Wednesday, July 30, 2008

After weeks of other commitments on Sunday mornings, I finally had time alone to watch the Hour of Power this past Sunday. Watching gives me a dose of positive energy that gets me through another week.

I was pleased to see Robert H. Schuller giving the sermon; I still prefer the original Schuller. Part way through his message, something struck a chord – something not in the written version, but is in the video.

Don’t use the word ‘just’. Cut the word ‘just’ out of your life. Don’t ever say, “I’m just this or just that.” Cut that word out. People will put you down, but don’t put yourself down.

Wow! How true!

How many times have most of us said that?

“I’m just a stay-at-home mom (or dad).”

“I’m just a teacher.”

“I’m just a garbage man.”

Or whatever.


Stop putting yourself down and watch what happens…

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

“I’m just a blogger.” 🙂

Nah, I’m a web content producer.

Wow… you have a valid point. I do this some with my life but I also do this a LOT with my blog…

“Oh, it’s just my blog. It’s not like, themed or anything.” But so what… It’s an extension of ME, and I rock. LOL

Thanks for the encouragement! :o)

I’ve never even realized how often that word is said until you mentioned it… Gone! That words is out the door. We should all have more confidence!
