How to use the power of the spoken word: tips to be more positive when speaking
The words we pronounce every day have immense, really great power. They help us to communicate with the people around us, to relate in all situations of our life, the word is social, we have inherited it without questioning it and our children will also inherit it. It is a reflection of our culture and society .
Very rarely do we stop to really think about the importance of using words, and if we do, it is to think about how to try to convince another, to be kind in a social situation, not to be too hard on a child or to use vocabulary. Formal in a work environment.
But words have an even more meaningful use since with them we create our reality! Of course you had heard it before, but it never hurts to remember, because in the way of life it is often easy to return to bad habits . And learning continues throughout our existence.
When we are children, we grow up listening to how our elders express themselves, those words that we hear at an early age influence our perception of reality. We were taught grammar rules and spelling, but they never told us that the words we use have to do with the experiences we will live. No one taught us that our words create our reality.
Our words create our reality.
Just listen to what sick, lonely, poor people say. The words and expressions they use affirm them in their poverty and disease.
If you choose to start using the power of your words, consider the following items:
START PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU SAY
A first step is to change the limiting or negative words . An example is the word should. It is a word that takes away your power and imposes something you might not want to do or never wanted. Replace it with your choice . This simple change will give you a new perspective: all you do is your choice. Another way to change the way you speak is to use positive words instead of negative phrases, for example, instead of saying "don't forget the keys", it is more effective to say "remember to take the keys".
AVOID THE COMPLAINT
The complaint is a constant creator of experiences that you detest, experiences that are repeated again and again so that you continue complaining and creating the same experience cyclically. Get out of the vicious circle and start to thank and see everything good around you.
AVOID TALKING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE
One of my favorite phrases is that of Eleanor Roosevelt: Big minds talk about ideas, medium minds talk about events, small minds talk about others.
You have so much to work for in yourself, to improve yourself day by day to be the best version you can be, to give your full potential in this life, that you really can't afford to go there talking about everyone, judging and provoking talk. You deserve much more, you deserve a positive dialogue with yourself . You know what you give, you get! It's like that! Do not waste your time talking badly about other people who are trying to do their best with the knowledge, awareness and circumstances they have at this time. Louise Hay reminds us that “ we see in others only what we see in ourselves. Instead of criticizing someone, praise him, and you will see how within a month you will notice a huge change in you. ”
DISCLOSE ONLY GOOD NEWS
We want evil to end in the world but we know nothing more than saying words about the things we hate. We let ourselves be bombarded with information about every miserable and catastrophic news, every day. And then, to complete the circuit, we talk to others, to make sure everyone knows that we live in a cruel and hostile world. It is really sad.
The best thing you can do is, if one of this news comes to you, don't comment again. It would also be very healthy for you to avoid news programs and newspapers, as much as you can.
Only you can think of your mind and only you can pronounce the words that come out of your mouth. Let them be words of love towards you and others.
