How Successful People Talk

I will instead of I want to

I’m doing instead of I should

I’ll make a plan instead of I’ll try 

I’ll be there instead of I might make it

I’ll do it instead of I’ll try my best

I can instead of I can’t

I’m able instead of I wasn’t born with the same advantages as the other guys

I need to instead of I’d like to 

I am instead of if or when

The right hand side is cold and ambiguous and too general. You’re an artist and generality is the enemy of all art. Implement the phrasing on the left and you’ll be taking a stand, and doing something, and creating something.
