Words Have Power

By MiShonLandry

Our words, have the power to change people’s lives.

Power to motivate or tear down.

Power to inspire or kill a dream.

Power to cause visions to be realized.

Power to make someone believe they can conquer the world.

Power to give confidence to a weary soul.

Our words are one of the most powerful tools we can use.

What are you doing with your words?

Often we playfully say things about others and to our loved ones, then before you know it, those words have taken root.

This happens because we have sown the seeds of negativity and discouragement.

We see the outcomes in the failed relationships we have with others.

When we consider and define the root cause of why we exhibit this egoistic behavior, often we can begin to disarm our walls of defense.

Do you want to make a change in your life and in the life of someone else, begin by speaking words of positivity, encouragement, and hope.

If you tend to start a conversation off criticizing others, stop it. Or if you frequently look for the negative before you see the good, begin to change your perspective.

Make a solid effort not to fall into the same patterns of the past.

Start by catching yourself speaking positive words. The more you become aware that you are using this method, the more likely you will be to continue this positive trend.

Before you know it, you will begin to see changes in those around you and most importantly, in yourself.

Remember words are very powerful tools that we must be entrusted to use wisely and honorably.
