Experience has made me come to the culmination that the most powerful and effective weapon is no other than 'WORDS'
One of my favorite Bible verses Ephesians 4:29
Let no unwholesome word proceed from
your mouth, but only such a word as is
good for edification according to the need
of the moment, so that it will give grace to
those who hear.
Words are so powerful that even those of others can hurt or motivate you. And so it is the other way round ; our words carry enormous weight. More than we sometimes think. They often impact people for a very long time, either providing the courage to press on or
one more reason to give up.
Developing an affirmative Spirit, confessing positively is a key to keeping alive. I love Mohammed Ali, who I call a positive thinker. He kept saying he was the greatest even before he began a known boxer. Let me give you some of his quotes...
“I know where I’m going and I know the truth, and I don’t have to
be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.”
“If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure
make something out of you.”
“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once
that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.”
“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the
pebble in your shoe.”
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now
and live the rest of your life as a champion.”- Mohammed Ali
One important thing is that, the way you speak -- the attitude and tone -- reflects the person you are and impacts everything around you. It can greatly contribute to your success or “non-success”
So, in conclusion, think before you speak. It will make a whole lot of difference.
