   Words can invoke positivity or negativity. You can be having great day and get some bad news and that news changes the rest of the day from sunshine to rain , from happy to sad or in some cases void of all feelings. Each day I have a plan. My plans always include doing the things that will make me feel happy or the plan that will give me the best results. I truly believe no one sets out to have a bad day.  A quick story about how words or people can change your perspective. Many years ago I was a happy go lucky employee at a fortune 500 company. My schedule was from 9 to 5 most days. So one day I decided to come in to work early. Instead of arriving at  9 am that day I arrived at 7 am. Imagine walking into your work and seeing your fellow employees  drinking coffee talking/complaining about the company. I knew we had some issues , but overall, I thought we were doing very well. NOT!!!! I went from an attitude of hope and future financial gain to an attitude of layoffs and no raises.  In hindsight that taught me a big lesson. Just because the glass is half full for some it also looks half empty to others.

    Today I have to be careful about the words that are coming out of my mouth. I have to watch the intent and the tone by which I speak. For instance I am a professional courier. I drive for a living. There are others who do the same. When we  meet and greet each other I am very careful to be as positive as I can. I practice ending my conversations with the other drivers by saying:

” be careful and have a nice day”.

NOT!

” slow down and don’t get into an accident”

Each word is a creation. It can paint a picture of  hope and prosperity or words can discourage and destroy all the good that’s headed  my way. When I get too angst or  too emotional I have to tell myself  ~  slow down and take breath. After I slow down  I begin to feel  a bit more relaxed  and  bit more in control.

 Most of us may forgive an act that was done against them to cause  harm. One thing is for sure, they will always remember how you made the feel.  Your thoughts do matter and words can change your future today.

Please watch your words every  today. 

I have been working for many years to help others, at least, take a look at some very simple and affordable ways improve their life. I have been doing this in my neighborhood, places where I do business, with friends , family and whoever I am fortunate enough to meet. I do this by listening to what they want and doing my best to help them get what they want.

  1. This is a powerful and motivational post. I completely agree that we all need to think about what we say to others and how what we say can have an effect on how others feel.

    Words can have a lot of power in not only our lives, but in the lives of others. They can definitely impact our day, so it is a great reminder that we should think, and say, positive things, rather than negative. Change the day to sunshine instead of rain!

    Great motivation for the day ahead. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Words are much more powerful than we realise sometimes. Even the slightest comment said in jest can sometimes stay with someone for years.

    I think texts can make this issue worse as well as they are so easy to misinterpret. The same with emails. Often a face to face conversation is the only way forward although this isn’t always practical!

    Thinking positively and trying to pass this on to others is the best thing we can do 🙂

    1. Hey Louise I agree. Especially with texting. In the era of social media we are inundated with a lot of post and comments. I to prefer a face to face when possible. thanks so much for your comment.

  3. I couldn’t agree more with you!

    About 4 years ago, my husband and I discovered – among other things – the power of words.

    For instance, we realized that saying things like “I’m so tired, I wish it were Friday” only made us more tired and fed up with our day-to-day lives.

    The moment we switched our attitudes to more positive ones, saying things like “today is going to be great, we’re going to be very productive and we’ll get one step closer to our goals”, everything changed!
    We felt happier, more energetic and optimistic!

    Of course, this is something that we need to be very vigilant about and not let the negative words get back to the scene…

    All the best,
    Eliane
