Positive Words is the Formula
It is hard to imagine that there was a time in our lives that we were unable to speak. We had to communicate by gestures, facial expressions, the occasional sound and emotions. Yet, our parents miraculously figured out what we needed and how we were feeling.
There are some people who have never uttered a word and use their hands to form the most intricate sentences and meaningful conversations.
And, here we are, arguably the most fortunate people because we have the ability to articulate our thoughts, share words of inspiration and love, capable of communicating every ache and pain and yet, we choose to ignore the power of our words.
I am as guilty of this as the next person, using soul-crushing, career-defining words against myself. I would always wonder why there was no progress, no movement, no growth; only to realize now that it was because of the words I gave life. To give life to these words is to give life to despair, frustration, anger, sadness.
It is important to speak life into your words and draw positivity from them when you are speaking of yourself and others. We want everyone to succeed, we want everyone's lives to be fruitful, we want everyone to live out their dreams. There are times where you may not feel motivated to do this, but the goal is to get to a point where positivity reigns more often than not.
"Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another." - Napoleon Hill
