Words are far more powerful than many of us realize.
In fact, our entire experience of reality is shaped by words. Try describing anything without words and you’ll see it’s nearly impossible. Reframing and rewriting the words I said to myself and about myself has been one of the biggest ‘ah-ha’ breakthroughs in overcoming my self-imposed limitations and has led to my success in business and life.
This week I received a message from a former client of several years past. I had no idea of the impact I had made.
I’ve always thought when given the opportunity, you should leave people better than where you found them. At times I questioned whether I was doing this enough in my own life.
Being a high touch person who loves to be present with others, this year has been challenging. Our phone and computer screens have been the major touch point in our connection with others.
But it was these words of encouragement in the message that renews my spirit and desire to continue to show up better each day to inspire and share with others.
Here are my words of encouragement for you:
- You’re amazing just the way you are.
- You are capable of anything.
- Your potential is unlimited.
- To somebody out there, you’re the most amazing person in the world.
Pass on the encouragement.
Give somebody in your life some words of encouragement today. It might be your kids, your significant other or the people who work with you. Just do this for one person.
It might make a huge difference in changing the direction of their lives, and yours.
