Are you a “Yeah,but”er?

Are you a “Yeah,but”er?

It can happen when we hear or see others accomplishments and our immediate response is “Yeah,but________”

We all have done it professionally, athletically, and personally.

It not only diminishes others accomplishments it also creates a mindset of impossibility for ourselves

“Yeah, but he grew up wealthy”
“Yeah, but her family owns”
“Yeah, but he is built like a runner so that is easy for him”
“Yeah, but he is a larger frame so lifting is easier for him”
“Yeah, but she works full time“
“Yeah, but she doesn’t have kids”

Instead of “yeah, but_____” start to re-frame it, “Congrats to them, I can improve myself by working on _________________”
