The Power Of Words...

Written or spoken, words are continuously propelling us through life. They lift us up, drag us down, wound us deeply or heal our hearts. Words have the power to break confidences, build life long alliances or start wars.
Words can make or break us, both as individuals and as a society. What have you been saying lately?

The words you speak can have a profound effect on the people they reach. Are you encouraging or discouraging? Are you building up your children, your spouse, your friend or even the stranger you pass on the street? Or are you tearing down your own family with words of criticism, bitterness and judgment? Are you causing the destruction of your self-esteem by speaking ill suited words over yourself, your health and prosperity?

The Power of One by Bryce Courtney:"He would often use an analogy from nature. 'Ja, Peekay, always in life an idea starts small, it is only a sapling idea, but the vines will come and they will try to choke your idea so it cannot grow and it will die and you will never know you had a big idea, an idea so big it could have grown thirty metres through the dark canopy of leaves and touched the face of the sky.' He looked at me and continued, 'The vines are people who are afraid of originality, of new thinking; most people you encounter will be vines, when you are a young plant they are very dangerous.' His piercing blue eyes looked into mine. 'Always listen to yourself, Peekay. It is better to be wrong than simply to follow convention. If you are wrong, no matter, you have learned something and you will grow stronger. If you are right you have taken another step towards a fulfilling life.' "

Words are powerful.
Whether spoken or written, there is not a more powerful way to influence the minds of men and women than words.  Written or oral, you can take an idea that did not exist just moments before, and create a revolution that changes the face of the earth.

With the power of words, you can turn an enemy into a friend, and create an asset out of what was previously declared as weakness.You can mend broken hearts, and create clarity and trust – you can make people sayI trust you
The greatest ideas in the world, are nothing without your ability to communicate those ideas to the world.

So...Which words have YOU used today?
