Reframe negative thinking by using ‘yet’

When you’ve got someone in front of you that doesn’t believe they can do it. Maybe they’re saying things like:

  • I can’t …
  • I don’t know how …
  • I haven’t got …

One of the easiest ways to reframe their thinking is to add ‘yet’ to the end of their sentence.

  • You can’t do it yet, but you will.
  • You don’t know how to do it yet but you will.
  • You haven’t got the skills yet, but you will.

And it works on yourself as well.
