What you say to yourself or others is a matter of life and death. Be smart and think before you speak as words have the power either to heal someone’s life or to shoot them down.
Think of a time when you heard an encouraging word from someone in times where you most needed it. How many times you regret saying a word that you shouldn’t say it at all?
Words are a double-edged sword. A single word can pierce and cause a heart to bleed, while another word can give hope to someone’s life. It’s your choice to make them poisonous or fruitful that’s why we have to be fully aware of our tongue.
So, let’s call it a mission. Mind your own words from now on and make a list of the words you use frequently in your daily conversations with yourself and others by observing yourself through the day. By the end of the day assess those little words that you have written down and think are they uplifting or destructive ones?
So you can hear yourself saying things like,
No, I CAN’T.
This can’t be done.
She doesn’t like me.
Nobody likes me.
I don’t know what to do.
Sounds familiar!!! How many times you picked yourself saying those limiting destructive words. The burden they carry to you is fatal and they can turn someone’s life to an endless misery in an instant.
Look at speeches of great figures such as Martin Luther King “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
The language he used has uplifted a whole nation and gave them a great picture of what their future would be and so his dreams existed now.
There is an abundance of words that can change the way by which you see the whole world. These are the words of possibility:
I have a dream.
I can do it.
I like myself.
I believe in myself.
This shall too pass.
I can get through this.
I am unstoppable.
Next time you run a conversation with yourself or others remember the power of your spoken words and the influence that they can leave on you and others. How about today, speak to whoever you meet on your day, which can be your colleague, roommate, spouse and a friend and try to pick encouraging, inspirational and peaceful words. Will you do this?
Tell me in the comment your most powerful words 🙂 let’s fill our world with words of love, peace, and harmony. My favorite word is “believe”. How about yours? 😉
