The Life Changing Power Of Words
How To Change Your Life
Do you want to know how to change your life or do you prefer to bury your head in the sand? It does matter what you say! Words can destroy or build you up. They can encourage you to do something or make you feel that it is hopeless. We all know this really. It doesn't feel good when someone says something negative. I guess this could include gossip, lies, derogatory remarks, negative criticism, judging, angry outbursts and bad language even. How many of us have been thwarted in an exciting plan we had to do something positive, radical and- ok, maybe a little crazy, only to have our enthusiasm and courage crushed by remarks such as "that will never work" or "you can't do that!" Even in the media all around us, we see and hear things that seem out of our world and impossible to reach and when we look at our own lives in comparison, are left feeling inadequate. It is easier to see a cup half empty rather than half full. Somehow, by complaining and feeling sorry for ourselves we can feel that it will resolve the situation or at least make us feel better, but it rarely does.
Positive words on the other hand can ignite the best in us and give us the strength to do what is right. Just knowing that someone believes in us can help us to step out and not to feel alone. Sometimes of course, actions can speak louder than words, but that should never be an excuse to avoid speaking out. Yes- sometimes we need to speak out for a good cause or on the behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. Words should be on our tongues, not somewhere at the back of our brains, residing in the dust of long lost thoughts. As G.B. Stern said, "Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone". Taking people for granted is often felt by them when we stop speaking out positive words. These words are life and our daily bread. It's a known fact that children develop naturally through positive reinforcement, often negating their need for negative behaviour.
Taking Control Of Your Own Destiny With Anthony Robbins
Anthony Robbins explains quite thoroughly how we can change our lives by changing our language- body, mind and soul. "The words you consistently select will shape your destiny." Being aware of what happens to us when we do or say negative things, compared to when we do or say positive things is a real empowerment to changing for the better.
Deep within man dwell those slumbering powers; powers that would astonish him, that he never dreamed of possessing; forces that would revolutionize his life if aroused and put into action.— Orison Swett Marden
The secret is in The Word.
The Effects Of Speaking The Word In Faith - Powerful words- when connecting with your mind and heart!
There are many positive words in our vocabulary, some might be forgotten, but the Bible has been saying them for years. This is why this exciting book refers to them as the Word Of God. or The Word. Creflo Dollar has proved in his own life that by meditating on and speaking The Word consistently, we reap the rewards of a prosperous life. This means every area of our lives and certainly not just our finances.
And The Word Was God
And God Said, Let there be light!
Speaking out positive words, even requests, that we believe (connect with our minds and hearts)
God hears as prayer.

Undoing Bad Habits
It takes a bit of practice to undo bad habits and replace them with good ones, but Joyce Meyer shows us how and why it is worth the effort. She shows us how to take control of our mouths and enjoy peace in our relationships instead of discord. It really works!
Me and my big mouth. Think before you speak!
