“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.”
When it comes to listening, it is about hearing. Hearing just means listening enough to catch what the speaker is saying. So the speaker I am describing here is our own language or shall we say our own WORDS. The next part of listening is understanding, it happens when you take what you have heard and understand it in your own way. Judging, after you are sure you understand what you’ve heard, think about whether it makes sense. Do you believe what you have heard?
How the words we choose shape our lives?
Do you know of those people who fly off the handle without stopping to think about the consequences of what they’re saying? Someone who just reacts to something someone said or did and starts attacking that person with cruel accusations? The damage could be so profound, it will forever sever the relationship.
The words that we speak can create and encourage. At the same destroy, tear down, break down, and devastate the people in our lives. So the words we use can have a positive effect on another person’s life or, in some cases, a negative effect.
Words can Create…
We all love it when someone encourages and acknowledges us as we journey through life. When someone tells us that we look great, that we have done a fantastic job, or that we are amazing.
So we should deliberately choose to use positive words to speak life to every other person that we encounter.
Words have power. Their meaning crystallizes perceptions that shape our beliefs, drive our behaviour, and ultimately, create our world. To use kind and encouraging words builds self-confidence, self-esteem and using words correctly is pure magic.
The way you speak, the attitude and tone, reflects the person you are and impacts everything around you. It can greatly contribute to your journey in life.
Words can Destroy…
How we use our words can dramatically influence others. Using words of hate, projecting fear, manipulate, bullying, degrading and gossip can influence others in a negative way and over time may cause anxiety, depression, nervousness, mental issues and suicide.
Words influence others and build relationships at work and personally. It can create or tear down relationships. In other words, language holds massive, colossal power to manifest change, whether it’s good or bad.
The tongue has the power of life and death. We possess the power to replace the positive being into a negative one. We can choose to use words that encourage or discourage, words to inspire or be the hindrance, and words to build or to destroy.
Choose your words wisely…
The capacity of our words through various languages has allowed us to build civilizations, cultures, technology and human relationships in all cultures around the world. It is necessary to choose our words carefully and wisely because words can build new relationships or they can damage it.
The only thing as important as the message itself is the words you choose to convey it. Our words can cause pain, hurt and discouragement. Our speech should build people up, not destroy them.
Listen to your language because it is the only source of power that can evolve us and bring about the real change in all societies.
