Words. Oh the power they have.
Words can crush someone's self-esteem in an instant, and yet in the same breath they could inspire someone to reach their goals and chase their dreams.
I've always been a firm believer of positive self-talk. There is just something so empowering about saying positive things about yourself, to yourself and others. Sometimes I catch myself saying things like, "Ah I am so stupid." just to quickly say, "I'm not stupid this is just a hard problem. But I can do it."
I've definitely been laughed at a time or two for my silly comebacks to myself. But nothing can change the way I choose to empower myself through my words.
Those words cause me to stop and think. They empower me to be a better person today than I was yesterday. They help me make important choices and they affect my relationships.
What words do you find empowering?
