We often use ambigous language to shield ourselves from reality.
We say we want get "healthy" because it's easier to say than "lose 30 pounds".
I made "some" sales calls yesterday...hides the fact that we only made "3".
Declaring to our colleagues that someday we'd like to run for a "national office" because we're too embarrassed to say "I want to run for President."
Words are incredibly powerful (much more powerful than most of us will ever realize). They have the power to create and the power to destroy. Often times, the only thing preventing you from making the changes you need to make, is the words you use to desribe them. Choose wisely.
