I want you to stop and think for a minute...how do you speak to yourself? Do you speak to yourself with kindness or anger...love or loathing...patience or frustration? How do you speak to others? Do you poison with words or do you bless with words?
You see, words are so powerful that how we use them when speaking to ourselves can really make a huge impact in all areas of our lives. How we use them to speak to others can affect the very course of their lives as well.
Learning to use 'the word' to EMPOWER yourself can create some amazing opportunities in your life. You can move from a place of frustration and anger with yourself to one of peace and progress. You can replace those negative words in your head with positive and uplifting thoughts.
What you dream, what you are, and what you want to be are all manifested by the power of the words you use about and to yourself and others. You see, words are a force. They can create goodwill or war. They can create feelings of love or hate. They can poison someone when spoken with ill intention. They can harm and enslave people for years.
But words can also create goodness, strength, love and can provide a loving means to make someone's day better. Words can be used to create the wonderful things that you want to happen in your life if you'll just learn to use the power of the word.
It might seem silly to some...but on my mirror in the bathroom I have posted my blessings for the day. These are prayers of thanks in ADVANCE of the blessings I'm expecting to receive. A great new job for Don. A good report card for Bethany. Health and financial security for my family. I read these words daily and believe them and expect them to come into my life. I'm using the power of the word to speak them to life.
If you will practice speaking kindly to yourself you will be surprised at how much happier you are with life. Instead of responding with angry words to a situation, stop and reflect on how you can use nicer words to get your point across. People respond far better to kindness than anger.
Speak kindly to yourself and others and you will reap the rewards. How will you know it's working??
People will start to respond to you differently. They will have more respect for you. They will request your opinion knowing you'll give them solid and thoughtful advice. They will not be fearful to approach you..for they know you will not speak to them in anger.
Go ahead....use the power of the word in a positive way and just wait and see what happens with your life...
May you be richly blessed.
I believe Stephanie you have hit the nail on the head....Being out of work has not helped my disposition and I seem to carry a lot of hatred in my heart for the people I worked for....They closed our section out of "Greed'.....The manager said that he and the general manager would stand to loose their bonuses if they kept it opened.....I to have put a sticky note on my mirror asking myself to "Let It Go" .....So far it has hasn't worked, but I still keep trying......John
From a fellow believer, thanks for sharing!
Stehanie thank you for those words of encouragement. Life, disappointments, tough love up bringing with a sensitive personality has left some pretty bad recordings in my head that I pray with GOds help are being erased. Please keep these words of encouragement coming. Words that I try to remind myself of daily are I am SPECIAL I deserve to feel and look as good on the outside as I believe I am on the inside. I want to treat other people just as special as God has and will continue to treat me all the days of my life. KEEP THEM coming Stephanie.. A Fan Lynnbegan-again
I love positive affirmations!
what an inspiration..Thank you Stephanie
Great words to live by!
Thanks and have a super Holiday season!
Very uplifting. A nice way to start my day.
Couldn't agree more Stephanie. I tell my client's all the time preparation and skill is key but it is your attitude not your aptitude that determines your altitude. Thank you for the spark!
Thank you for your words of insight! They hit home for me!!!
Thanks! This is a great reminder that we receive what we give and when we speak and act positively, it comes back to us.
This is awesome and so full of truth. These principles have the power to transform one's life if taken and acted upon! Thank you for sharing. Blessings, Sharon
Last Saturday I wrote in my notebook while at church "Words mean things. - 3rd Witness!" I actually heard that statement 3 times in a one week period from 3 completely different sources. So I was so drawn to this post when I saw the title - I knew that this would speak to me and it did in a very powerful way. See the irony of words spoken almost a year ago still having an impact. Thanks for posting this was very very inspiring.
THank ou Stephanie... I needed to read that today. Awesome...
POWERFUL MESSAGE!!!Thank you!
This dovetails exactly with the book The Secret that I've been studying. It is powerful in dealing with old baggage that I am in the process of letting go in order to gain additional momentum in my life. I AM EMPOWERED!
Thank you. Very important and profound.
