I have a poster on my wall that I made that says "Take the word 'CAN'T' out of your vocabulary. I started replacing it with things like "I will try harder", "I will work on it", and "this is not impossible, just difficult now". My attitude is much better, and I have heard less "can't"s in my classroom as well!
Delete the negative word plateau from your vocabulary. It can be a holding pattern or time of rest for your body. It is probably the most awful word in dieting other than backslide. Be positive by saying in abeyance. You are awating the next step in your upward spiral. Anyone with a better word?
