Embed from Getty ImagesEver heard the phrase, “Fake it till you make it?” It means that even when you’re not feeling confident, you act confident. And part of acting confident is the choice you use in words. Time recently wrote a piece on the 10 Words People Who Lack Confidence Always Use.

These words appear daily in our emails and our conversations with coworkers. A lot of times we’re just covering our bases in case anything does go wrong. But other times we just insert these useless words into our language out of habit. They deteriorate our conviction and our purpose.

Here is the list. Memorize it. Then delete these words from your knowledge. Or save them for the very few instances when you actually mean it.

1. Might
2. Won’t
3. Usually
4. Suspect
5. Impossible
6. Worried
7. Confused
8. Need
9. Quandary
10. Likely
