Use these words to change your life: 


One of the most magical words ever. Use this word frequently to reclaim time, increase productivity, and focus on what really matters.

This word will help you find your and other people's hidden motivations and drivers. 


This word is even more important than the previous one. By asking how you can make something happen, you become solution-oriented. 

"I see you." (Or: "I hear you.")

We all want to be seen and heard. That's why these words can change your life and the lives of those around you. Use them frequently to assure others that you see them and hear them. 

"I love you."

Use these 3 words frequently with your loved ones (including yourself).
