This week I have been working on how much our words matter, it can break or build our relationships, outcomes, and reputation.
Our words are a representation of who we are inside. Our words are our thoughts, feelings, and our behavior wrapped into one. The impact of a loving word can build a lifetime of confidence for our children, and create joy for our mate, friends and family. The impact of words of commitment bonds a marriage for years. An inspiring word can make someone at work reach their optimum potential of creativity and productivity. An abusive word can break your child’s heart. A belittling word can damage a friendship. Telling a lie breaks trust.
Since our words are a combination of our thoughts, intentions, feelings and show up through the behavior of talking or writing, choosing our words to create a particular result becomes important. Behaviors have consequences and at times irreversible ones. We can choose to use our words to share who we are authentically or manipulate others to gain something that we think we couldn’t get if we simply stated the truth.
So, observe yourself
- How do you use your words?
- to raise positivity for others?
- to belittle?
- to dump your feeling?
- to manipulate?
- to share your love?
- to negotiate?
- to request?
- Have you recognized the impact of your words? Positive or Negative?
- Have you noticed the impact of other people’s words on you?
- Have you observed your own words toward yourself?
Choose your words wisely, they represent you, and create your results.
