Think About the Tremendous Power of Words
By Remez Sasson
Think about the tremendous power of words:
- Do you keep telling yourself how difficult life is? If you do, you will always see difficulties everywhere.
- Do you keep telling yourself how poor you are? If you do, your subconscious mind will always be busy justifying these thoughts.
Change the words and sentences you use, and you will get different results. The way you phrase a sentence will always affect the results, and some results could be quite dramatic.
This applies to words you repeat in your mind, words you say aloud, and words you read.
Different words affect people and differently and cause different reactions. This applies to work interviews, dating, advertising, relationships, conversations and every sort of communication.
The words you repeat in your mind, in your inner conversations, also have a tremendous power. If you change them, you can change your life, and also how people treat you.
Pay attention to the words you constantly repeat in your mind. Be aware of what is going on in your mind, when you are not too busy, such as while waiting in line, travelling by bus or train, walking, or at any other time you are mentally not busy.
What kind of words do you repeat in your mind?
If you always say:
- I am weak
- I am poor
- I cannot…
- This is a problem
Change the words, and instead say:
- I am strong.
- I am rich.
- I can.
- This a solvable challenge
Say these words with faith and conviction, not just uttering them without believing them. This might be difficult at first, but if you persist, the inner resistance will get weaker, and the words would sink into your subconscious mind. When this happens, things would start changing in your life.
Unconsciously, you always program your mind with the words you say to yourself and to others. However, you can change these programming by choosing different words. This is quite simple. This is how affirmations work.
Remember that words have power:
- Words can change your life
- Words affect how you feel
- Words affect how you react
- Words affect how you treat people, and how you treat them
- Different words bring different results
You can phrase the same idea in different words and see dramatic differences. This applies to the way you talk to your spouse or children, to your friends or clients, to your boss or colleagues.
