Do you know how powerful your words are?
What’s the most powerful resource you have at your disposal, right now?
I would suggest that it is more than likely the word. Whether written or spoken, tweeted, blogged, texted, shouted, whispered or withheld, words have the potential to change the world around you in an instant. Equally, how you use or misuse the word can help prolong the status quo, keep you stuck in a rut.
Whether you realise it or not, words have changed your life. They may do so again today.
It’s all down to what you choose to say next, how you choose to employ your words.
In his excellent and thought-provoking book Manuscript Found In Accra, Paolo Coelho says:
“Some words are elegant, some can wound and destroy, but all are written with the same letters.”
We only have twenty-six letters from which to choose. But what we can do with those twenty-six letters is truly infinite.
The word is the most powerful resource you have at your disposal now. It’s best that you use it wisely.
What’s the most powerful thing you could do with words today? Will you choose to do it?
