The words you choose to use have the power to create your reality
- Tracey Hancock
Words are words. They're simply 'things' we think and say.
Or are they ... is there more to our words than we think?
The seemingly simple and small words that you use each day are powerful because they create your reality.
On their own or strung together in a sentence, each time you think or say something...
- you strengthen the beliefs you have,
- influence the action you take, and
- your body hears and responds.
Your words have power
The words you use will either heal or harm.
They'll help you achieve your dreams or keep you stuck.
It's not that we intentionally set out to harm ourselves or hold ourselves back.
But those simple and small words or throw away lines like "I'm silly", "I'm useless" and "you stupid man/woman" and so on ... become lodged in your mind as beliefs and pull you down, keep you stuck and create dis-ease.
Your words affect your health, how you show up each day and the success you achieve.
So, what are you choosing to say about and to yourself?
By becoming more aware of the words you use and understanding your own patterns of thought and behaviour, you can get into the driver's seat and make the changes you need to make to live well now.
You might, for example, notice that when you're tired or hungry you become particularly critical of yourself. Or maybe when you're doing something new, especially in a group of people who you may or may not know, you judge yourself harshly.
Take action now to live well.
You and your health matter. So while becoming aware of the words you use and your own patterns is important, that in itself won't create the change you desire.
You need to take action.
Make a decision now to create the changes you need to live well.
As you notice the words and patterns you've identified popping up, STOP them in their tracks. It's useful to have a phrase you can use to interrupt them and refocus your mind.
Here are a few examples...
"Stop. That isn't true. I'm tired and I'll take moment to rest now."
"Stop. That isn't true. I'm a kind and loving person."
"I don't believe I'm stupid. I'm allowing myself to learn something new."
What phrases would be useful for you? Write them down in your journal and read them often. You could also write them on post-it notes and put them somewhere visible. Or perhaps write them on a piece of paper and put them on your desk, in your handbag or backpack, or in your car.
Your words, what you think and say, create your reality. If it's not the reality you dream of, take a look a the words you're using and make changes now to achieve the success you desire in life and business.
You can do it.
