Have you heard this quote before?
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me..."
As much as this would be nice to be true, it isn't always correct.
Words can uplift or bring down someone in an instant.
In my 18 years of working in restaurants and managing others I have learned a great deal about communication and the choice of words we make when speaking with others, as well as the words in our thoughts.
It is not what you say, it is how you say it.
Are you choosing powerful words?
Or are you being negative?
I can try and do it.
I will do it!
Is it a problem? Or an opportunity / challenge?
It is how you look at it. Words can help shape that perception and view of an issue or crisis.
The symbol in chinese for crisis is actually two symbols together. Crisis & Opportunity.
Learn to use the power of affirmations in your thoughts to help you achieve your goals and unlock your potential and choose words that communicate that you have already achieved your goal.
Say out loud whatever goal you want to achieve.
I am strong & flexible
I am wealthy
I am fit and healthy
I have great relationships in my life
I am living my purpose in life
By saying and thinking that you have already achieved your goal, your subconscious mind will then believe it and take steps to bring that goal to fruition.
In order to achieve your goal you must believe it to be true, before it becomes true. Have faith and confidence that what you want will happen.
Choosing your words wisely will assist you in getting what you want!
Say this out loud:
I am getting what I want in life!
I am unlocking my potential!
Until next time...
