Change Your Words – Change Your Life! It’s a strong statement, yet I doubt anyone would argue the merits in those words. As an avid reader and author, I love the way words can transport me to another place, lift me up, or bring me down. I see how journalists and newscasters, using words to their advantage, stimulate our minds into believing their story, whether true or not! Words can make or break the world.
An acquaintance recently suggested I look at a Youtube video. He said it was well done and had a powerful message, so I opened his link and watched the video. He was right, the video was well done and it was indeed, powerful. The message was made very clear – words and how we use them can change our lives.
The video depicted a blind man with a sign that asked for help. After a woman changed those words, the results were amazing.
As it turns out, the video is a marketing tool for a consulting company and a book about how words can help grow your business. I have not read the book, so I cannot say whether it merits your purchase, but the video is worth watching. A simple video about words has collected over 19,599,673 views to date – powerful isn’t it?
How you use words, in your daily life, can affect you and those around you in profound ways. Angry words certainly induce anger or worse. Loving, caring words affect us as well but in a totally different way. I was taught, at an early age, to think before I open my mouth. Now, I find myself in a position where my words are read by many people around the world. My words take people on voyages to park benches, family gatherings, murder scenes, bedrooms, alternate universes, hospital intensive care units and more. I love to write. I craft the words in my stories to bring pleasure, pain, fear, and love into the hearts and minds of my readers.
But what about the words we use in our daily lives? Do we craft them as well? Many of us do, but far too many don’t. We take care when we write stories, emails, letters and even texts to make sure our words have the meaning we intend them to have. But do we use words that bring that meaning out in a more positive manner? Look at the video and think about how the words you use affect everyone around you as well as the life you lead.
