Choose them wisely. Spoken, written, or simply the words we use in our own minds — all words have potential power. The choices we make with our language sets the parameters for our lives. The skill of expression we possess can contribute to many facets of our ability to succeed personally and professionally. The real power in words is their meaning and interpretation. That is also the real power in life.
In addition to highlighting your character, the words you use are also powerful in predicting your future. The emotions we feel, the events we experience, and our ability to interact with other humans are all controlled by language. If we want more control, and more agency in our lives we can start with a greater understanding of the potential power in what we say to ourselves and others. When we speak, write, think, or otherwise use words we are engaging in something we should be mindful of. The power of words in our world is undeniable.
Don’t ignore the power of words. This power will play a perpetual role in your life. Only when you experienced that power yourself — either as the giver or as the receiver — did you begin to understand it. Our ability to find love and joy rely entirely on the frequency of those words being sought, expressed, received, and understood. You can use the power of words to heal or comfort others. Or you can use it to tear them down. Your character shapes and is shaped by the way you use this power.
Humans are the only species on this planet that has the power of speech and of the written word (as far as we know). But in spite of the creative potential this power gives us, we spend more time exploring its destructive potential.
