Good morning, Mintdom,
Words are powerful – they can either hurt or heal (yourself or others). Here is a challenge for you, IF you CHOOSE to accept it. Today, listen to the words you choose during the day and take note of it. This evening, look back at your notes. How did your words, your language affect you, your day or others? Will you do something different tomorrow?
Here are just a few things to watch out for –
Swearing is a Bad Habit: My dad always told me that when you use bad language, it makes you appear less intelligent because it looks like you are unable to pull a better word out of your vocabulary.
“Must swear off from swearing. Bad habit.” – Rutherford B Hayes
Watch Your Words: Words can change your reality if you say you can do something – many times, it happens. If you say you cannot to do something, you probably cannot.
If someone in our office is overheard speaking badly about themselves, someone shouts (softly) BOING, BOING; it is a reminder to speak kindly of ourselves. When we started this years ago, you would hear, BOING, BOING a lot. You rarely hear it these days. We are out of the habit.
“If you think you can do a thing or you think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
Keep Your Word: If you say you will do something – than do it; however, be careful what you promise.
“One lie has the power to tarnish a thousand truths.” – Al David
AffirMINTion: I like to keep my language soft and sweet.
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
