Sshhh…..I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Well, it’s not really that little. In fact, it’s not really even much of a secret. Powerful and successful people all over the world have been wielding this weapon since the beginning of human language.
You have heard of the Secret?
No not THAT Secret. A different Secret.
It’s the Secret of The Power of the Word.
And it belongs to you. No one can take it away from you. You own it. It is your weapon. To do with as you please.
Think carefully for a moment. How will you wield that weapon today? Your weapon has a very unique quality about it that no other weapon in your arsenal has. It has the power to shapeshift. You can turn it into a sword to cut down your opponent, a dagger to slice him through the heart, a grenade to blow him to bits with a filthy litany of expletives for grievances committed on highways or elsewhere.
Your words can turn to cubes of ice that you can coldly toss over your shoulder as a parting shot or a zinger that flings with a snap of your wrist or through barely parted teeth.
Instead of using your weapon for the battlefield, you can use its power for the cause of good instead. You can harness its energy to become a warm blanket of comfort for someone all alone and scared. Or a sheild of encourangement and strength for someone facing adversity and challenge. Your words can become a library of wisdom to inform and educate, to uplift and inspire those searching to learn. You can create bridges with your words to bring others together and help communities grow. You can be a haven of peace, A light in the darkness, a beacon of hope.
You are holding a tremendous power. You have a tremendous choice of what you can choose to do with it today.
Just by paying attention to your thoughts.
Just by opening your mouth and being careful what kind of words you allow to come out.
Take a moment to think.
Will your words:
admonish, attack, bewilder, betray, criticize, confuse, condemn, demoralize, discourage, destroy, enrage, frighten, gossip, harm, intimidate, judge, label, manipulate, neglect, ostracize, prejudge, quarrel, rage, scandalize, scream, tear down, terrify, underestimate, victimize, weaken, wound, or yell?
Will your words:
adore, affirm, beautify, bless, caress, celebrate, delight, empower, encourage, fascinate, gratify, help, honor, inspire, kiss, love, motivate, nourish, pamper, play, redeem, respect, serve, share, support,thank, trust, understand, value, validate, or welcome?
It’s your choice. It’s your secret weapon. Your VERY POWERFUL WEAPON.
Choose wisely. It can change your life.
It can change the world. What will you do with your words today?
