Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure… – Napoleon Hill
Do you believe that words have power? One quote says, ‘that life and death lies in the power of the tongue.’ We can easily speak an opportunity into existence or kill a dream just with the words we speak. How are we using the power of our words to influence our life?
Last week I had to work extra hours because my coworker was on vacation meaning I had to work. This was something that I wasn’t happy to do and all I could think of was how next week would be long. I was so negative about having to work the extra hours that the week was harder than it had to be.
As an over thinker we decide how we feel in our thoughts which then turn into possible outcomes. We then act on the outcome that we think works best and in my case this means verbalizing those thoughts. The thoughts and words we utter is what holds the power, and I see that if we channel the right way great things can happen.
I’ve only watched two episodes of Being Mary Jane, but the scene where she’s reading and posting sticky notes is something I understand. When I’m down I attach post its to my mirror so I can keep the faith that my life will work out. By posting positive quotes and bible verses I find strength and believe that I have the power to succeed.
I don’t know what my future holds but I refuse to use the power of my words result in constant negativity. I would rather do what I can to bring the right people and opportunities my way. So, how are you going to use the power of your words?
