The power of the tongue is mightier than a two-edged sword. Familiar with this saying?Powerful, huh? The tongue has the power to produce wounds that can last a lifetime, as well as the power to create an abundant life.
Blessings and curses! It all boils down to how you use it. Don't believe me? Skeptical. Consider the time you spoke yourself out of something? How about the time you picked yourself apart until you rendered yourself unrecognizable to self? Perhaps the time in which you built yourself up with one of the best pep talks ever, even Muhammed Ali would be proud, lol. Your words affect your behaviour.
How are you using this sword? It’s a choice you make. What does your self-talk consist of? Are you speaking life or death over yourself? How many times have you heard someone say be careful what you wish for? Words are NOT just words. Your words have the power to manifest your reality. So again I ask you, what are you speaking into existence?
Need work? consider writing your own self affirmations. This involves writing a list of positive statements about yourself. Repeat this with conviction long enough, and the change you will see and feel is life-altering. I’m telling you, you will be walking around with your head high while talking and walking as a brand new version of yourself. Why? Because of a few affirming statements you repeatedly spoke. Remember, this also works in the opposite manner, as I’ve mentioned. What we say day in and day out has a monumental bearing on how we view ourselves over time. Speak only of who/what you wish to see in your life.
