What we all do is talk to ourselves first. We feed our minds with words, on how we should be acting or reacting. There’s a constant running chatter, a dialogue in our conscious minds. A commentary to describe what we’re thinking, what we should do next. The words vary depending on if we’re stressed or challenged, or cool and relaxed. We will then alter these words, as we select and filter them out once we begin talking to people.
The daily vocabulary that we choose, the words that we use becomes extremely important. It’s thought that those who have impoverished vocabularies, will live impoverished lives. Those with rich vocabularies, has multitudes of colors to paint their textures, this for others to witness, and for them to feel.
The words that we say, directly influences how others react, and what we experience. That certain words can help and heal. It’s words that makes us laugh or cry, create or destroy. They can cause comfort or pain.
Words activate emotions which create actions, and these actions are how our lives are formed. Every belief is created by the original words we chant, which is constantly changed or challenged by other words.
Choosing different words to describe how you feel or what you’ve experienced, can instantly change and alter the perception of the event emotionally.
Words Dictate Your Life
If you’re in complete control of your life, what you’ll consciously do is evaluate, while improving on the quality content of your vocabulary. This to ensure that the words are pulling you in the direction that you want, instead of somewhere you don’t want to go.
If you’re constantly saying that you “dislike” or “hate” certain things, such as you hate your job, hate your hair, that you dislike doing something, anything, all you’re doing is raising the intensity of your negative emotional state.
So once you decide to change from “I hate” to “I prefer,” such as, “I prefer to get a new car,” or a new job, or new clothes, it becomes positive by you preferring to do something else, rather than hating to do it.
So begin by changing your habitual vocabulary, as what those words are doing, is describing your current state of life. Once you change your vocabulary, then what you’re changing is how you think and how you feel about yourself.
You Become What You Speak
Listen to what you’re saying to yourself right now, as what you’re doing is creating your destiny. What the words you think of are doing, is shaping your future beliefs, which impacts your actions. So choose wisely.
The poor choice of words that you think or use, will just give you poor results. Be careful of the words you use, when you’re faced with a new challenge in your life.
Ask yourself. “What can I learn from this, so I won’t repeat it?” Using better words produces a better question. A better question, will always produce better results.
Why Self Talk Is Powerful
For instance, someone is having a bad day, and you run into this person. They’re then more then happy to ruin your day, because they think it’s their duty to do so. There’s a saying, “If I’m having a bad day, then everyone else should as well.”
But if you manage your self-talk, then no one is going to decide how your day is going to go. Your self-talk could be that you’re not going to allow anyone’s bad drama, to force negativity in your life.
Why would you want to become a passenger of your life, allowing others to determine what you’re going to think or experience. You can avoid this, by taking control of your life by what you think.
The Magic Of Words
All you need is to create new empowering phrases, for every situation in your life, and what you say to yourself on a daily basis. Repeat these new phrases, affirmations, during the day or whenever the need arises. Also repeat them before you go to sleep.
Once you begin to fill your mind with these positive words and thoughts, what you’ll begin to do is attract everything that you want in life. Realize that you’ll still need to work for these changes by taking action, but you’ll now be working smarter instead of harder.
You can choose to help people achieve their goals with no agenda, and not expect anything back in return. This way, you’ll achieve all of your own goals and dreams. Once you stop getting involved in other people’s drama, then negativity won’t seep into your life.
Think how much better that your day will then become, compared to others. Be as honest to yourself as possible on a daily basis, as that’s the best gift that you can give yourself and others. Never take sides, never get sucked into their vortex.
Creating Words By Visualizing
If you’re wanting to create something new, become profitable, become successful, then use those positive words to develop those images in your mind. People always remember their best life experiences, by visualizing images.
Athletes and artists, are known to use visualization. A runner will witness themselves having a good run without injury. They see themselves running painlessly with perfect stride and breathing technique. Then they see themselves finishing the run with energy.
Your success in life, is strictly because of the words you visualize, which makes it easier to take action on them. No one would become successful, if they constantly said to themselves, “I’ll never achieve anything,” or “It’s just too hard.”
The difference between those who are successful and those who aren’t, is that those who succeed, do what others won’t think about or do. Then they’ll turn those words they think of, into action.
