CHANGE YOUR WORLD: CHANGE YOUR WORDS



Words Have Power

Words have the power to break or heal, build or destroy. Words can change people. We writers know that perhaps more than any one. How we use our words is how we create our lives and our image. Do we think about the same thing when we are not in front of our book or article? When we are face to face with another living being, we all need to remember what our words do every minute of every day.

CHANGING YOUR WORDS

If you are in the habit of using negative language and want to change the easiest way to be sure the words you are using are positive is to use the THINK Method. Think is an acronym that will help us all to keep our speech kind and thoughtful. It is important to remember that even if we are working hard to be more positive with other people, we also need to be aware of how we are speaking to ourselves. You are important. Treat yourself as such. Before you speak to yourself or another, consider this:

T Is what you are about to say truthful?

H Is what you want to say helpful?

I Is what you are going to say inspiring?

N Are your words necessary?

K Are your words kind?


Mom always said, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Mom had a good point because the saying about sticks and stones is wrong. Words can hurt. So, before you speak to yourself or another THINK first.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Make it a great day!

    The way I talk to my self is not nearly as kind as the way I talk to/with others.
