Power of positive words
“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” — Rumi
The words you use daily can set the tone for your day, week and life!
The way you talk to yourself is the way you love yourself and let’s be honest…your self-talk can be kind or cruel.
Language influences your view of the world — it shapes your relationships with people and things. Your words define how you see yourself.
This is not a motivational post — positive words alone won’t make everything fine. You need more than that. A growing body of research indicates that self-talk can improve your memory, confidence, focus and more. But you need the right strategy.
Start with awareness. You need to be aware that something needs to be modified. Pay attention to how you talk to yourself and the impact of your words.
Talking to oneself is one the most natural, yet undervalued, skills we have.
The power of words come from the beliefs we have in them — we believe and embody our words.
Unfortunately, your brain is ‘hard-wired’ to be negative.
Think of the brain as Velcro for negative experiences and Teflon for positive ones. This negativity bias causes the brain to overreact to ‘bad words,’ compared to how it responds to ‘good words.’ But we can overcome this bias by becoming more mindful of the words we choose.
Moving forward try replacing:
“I’ can’t” by “I will.”
“I have to” by “I want to.”
“I should” by “I choose to”
Remember your words affect your emotions, motivation and potential accomplishments. Type YES if you agree!!!
