Powerful Language Versus Victim Language

Powerful Language Versus Victim Language Written by Nuno Costa

Working in the fitness industry isn’t just about lifting weights, setting PRs and eating correctly; its also about having a mindset that is going to support your goals. A big part of creating our success in the gym is as heavily influenced by what comes out of our mouth as what we put into it. As one of my clients likes to say, there’s a lot of pop psychology that goes into it as well.

Our words create our reality, our perception of what happens to us, and what we are capable of achieving. When we choose powerful language it allows us to make choices with confidence and empowers us to take risks and go for things that we might not have thought were possible.

Examples of Powerful Language include:

  • I am….
  • I can…
  • I feel…
  • I create…
  • I choose to, or not to….

Our life is up to us. Our path is determined by what we are willing to create and how much we are willing to put ourselves out there, and that begins with what we say. Ultimately we are solely responsible for what happens to us. It’s easy to get into a slippery slope of victim language such as:

  • I can’t…
  • I need….
  • I should…
  • I have to…
  • I couldn’t…
  • I shouldn’t….
  • I had no choice…
  • If only you, they….
  • You make me feel….
  • They, you, made me…
  • It’s too late, far, expensive…
  • I’m too old, young, uneducated, out of shape…

Listen carefully to what you say for an entire day, and note whether you use more powerful or victim language to communicate. Henry Ford said it best, “Whether you think that you can or you can’t, you’re usually right.”
