I was wearing my motivational speaker hat, getting ready to speak to a group of teachers. And while I was doing that - I was musing to myself.

I believe that the quality of our lives is in direct proportion to the quality of how we talk to ourselves and others.  And part of my job as a motivational speaker is to help people recognize when something they are saying isn't very effective, and give them a better way of saying it.  And here's one you've probably either heard - or said yourself:
