“Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know more.”
There is nothing more powerful in the world we live in than a word. Words can build a new world or destroy it. Words can create or destroy families, make someone happy or kill them.
Unfortunately most people on this planet to do not put much thought into what they say, and this, believe it or not, is the reason we have most of the problems on planet earth….
Let me get to it in more detail: when you say something positive to a person, it can make their whole day. When I hear a compliment, whether I believe that it is true or not, whether the person just said it to get on my good side, it still makes me feel good. Who wouldn’t like to hear that they look younger, better looking, or smart? We all like to be recognized for what we do. That’s the reason people get medals at sport events or bonuses and awards at their everyday jobs.
On the other hand, nothing will get your blood boiling more than if someone says something negative about you. It’s even worse if they do it behind your back. It can destroy your whole day and in some cases even start wars. That’s exactly how wars start with a single negative word: they will tell you that there is someone somewhere who diminishes your character or took something that belongs to you and your loved ones. Whether it’s true or not, you will be ready to go to war, no matter if it is your neighbor, coworker or someone across the world.
The world that you create for yourself strongly depends on what comes out of your mouth. Be very careful when you speak because your words can take you to a life of fortune and happiness or misery and misfortune.
The tip that I use: start every day by exercises and meditating with positive thoughts. It helps me to control what comes out of my mouth.
