How often do you say what you actually mean? How conscious are you of the manner in which you express yourself?
Everything can be spoken positively or negatively. The way we speak reflects the thoughts we have, the interpretations we make, and the perceptions that frame the picture of the life we are living. It is easy to say things without being conscious of the words we choose, and it is even easier to not realize the power inherent in our language. If you are constantly saying things like, ‘pain in the neck’ and ‘it’s killing me’, you are inviting these things into your life. If you are constantly saying things like, ‘I am grateful’ or in a more challenging circumstance, ‘it could be better’, then you are working with your language to invite better, and more things to be grateful for to come to you.
The language spoken by the people around you impact how you feel in general. Start listening to learn more about who they are, how they are experiencing their world, and what they are inviting to be their life. Ask yourself, is this what YOU want to think, feel, and believe?
The language you speak yourself influences your whole life. Start listening to your words, the ones talking inside your head as well as the ones you say to others. Hear if you are speaking negatively or positively. What are your catch phrases that unconsciously flow out of you? Are they inviting that which you truly desire?
Not only can listening to people’s words teach you a lot about the person, listening to your own words, can teach you a lot about yourself!
