In this day and age, do we really understand how powerful our words are? I think that some of us do and I think that some of us have no clue how powerful what we say is.
It’s a concept I have never really taken seriously until later on in my life.
Words are the most powerful tool available to us. Whether you understand or believe it to be true or not. We can use our words for good, to build someone up and encourage others, or we can tear people down, tear a businesses success down. Words have the ability to produce life or to produce death.
With that being said, it’s important to discipline ourselves. To be careful of what we say, how we say it. It’s important to think before you speak. 1 Peter 3:10 says – “For the Scriptures say, If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies.” If you want to enjoy your life and see happy days then speak life not hurtful words. Rather speak kindness, love, encouragement and empathy.
This also means that if you have a negative feeling, it doesn’t need to be spoken. For when you speak something you’re now giving it power. Words have power. When we speak, we should speak after first taking a moment to contemplate what we are about to say.
This is so true about your business. A business can take time to build. As I have already mentioned throughout this blog, storms will come. That doesn’t mean you have to give more life to the challenges that you face. When someone asks you how your business is going, it’s not a good idea to tell them all the negative things that may be happening. Instead, talk about how blessed you are to have your business, that there are challenging days, but every day is a day where your business is moving forward, a day to learn, a day to overcome, and most importantly a day to give speak life into your business. When you speak about your business, be careful and thoughtful about what you will say. Our words really matter. Keep the negative out of your language. Speak positivity instead.
In my study of the bible, I have learned so much about my life. Our thoughts become words and our words produce life or death. I firmly believe that our lives are going in the direction of our thoughts. If our thoughts are constantly negative, then what we are speaking is negativity. While sometimes our thoughts can be negative – it’s important to begin to re-train our minds to focus more on positivity. A thought doesn’t have to take on any meaning. It’s what we do with those thoughts – agree and speak it, or disagree with it and speak differently about the situation.
