It is quite easy to be strong and maintain a good attitude when everything is calm, that is, when we have no problems or challenges in life. It’s a very different story when problems or situations like the current pandemic come along that have brought disease, fear, death, economic problems, etc. These are the times when it is extremely important for us to stand firm and be very careful about what we say.
Problems tempt us to say and do all sorts of things we wouldn’t do in the good times. We won’t get out of trouble with complaints, self-pity, fear and worry. We must raise a shield of faith and strength.
Very often people use the phrase “Hate”. They hate the way to work, they hate cleaning their house, going to the supermarket, mowing the lawn, paying their bills, and so on. It’s just a phrase, but one that carries power. Every time we say we hate something, it makes it harder for us to do it happily next time. So, start by saying that you enjoy the things that are hardest for you, and soon you will find that they are more enjoyable.
We can convince ourselves of things. I can convince myself that I despise something I need to do, or I can have a good attitude and talk well about it and make it much more enjoyable. Start paying attention to the silly words and phrases that come out of your own mouth and start forming new habits.
The universe is energy. We can curse our future by speaking ill of it, or we can bless it by speaking well of it. Do you have any dreams or visions for your future? Are there things you would like to see happen in the days, months and years ahead of you? I sincerely hope so, because without goals, we are directionless and very unmotivated. Now, my question is, have your words been in line with what you say you want?
Don’t just wait and see what happens in your life, but get some words working for you. Speak on purpose and make your words count. Avoid saying “I feel like no one cares about me,” “I’m afraid this is going to be a bad day,” “I’m tired and I’m afraid to go to work. Those kinds of words won’t add any value to the dreams or goals we have
By learning how to behave in the things we do every day, when one of the difficult times comes, we will be able to control our thoughts, emotions, attitudes and words we say more easily. Because there is no time when it requires more self-control not to speak negatively than when we are in a negative situation.
To understand the power of words, we can even quote the Bible: “He was oppressed, [but] when he was afflicted, he submitted and did not open his mouth; like a lamb led to the slaughter, and like a sheep before its shearers, he was speechless and did not open his mouth.
I know that one is always tempted to complain when things don’t go his way, but I have learned that it is a dangerous thing and can open the door to all kinds of evil. We must learn to enjoy life no matter what the circumstances, as long as we know what to do with our words.
The words we choose to speak have a tremendous impact on our lives. Happy words can increase your joy. Fill your vocabulary with beautiful words, give thanks, celebrate, be enthusiastic, be energetic, always speak with hope, faith and love.
You can never change what you talk about if you don’t change your thoughts, which are really self-statements. We talk to ourselves more than anyone else. We think most of the time, and those private thoughts are self-declarations. How we speak to ourselves determines our level of joy as surely as our words. Take a few minutes right now and make an inventory of what you have been thinking so far. Our conversation not only affects our level of joy, but also our peace and even our physical energy. Listen to yourself. What you tell yourself is the most important issue about you.
Speak with faith, not with fear. If you believe in the power of words after reading these lines, you should speak with faith, not fear. We all feel fear, it is human, however, in that moment when situations get out of your control, leave everything in God’s hands, give it to him. You can use a simple phrase like “I will not fear, I trust in God”.
Increase your peace. Think before you speak, if you really mean what you are going to say and if you will not hurt another person or yourself. I have found that, if I do that exercise, you do much of what you intended to say and never say it.
Be kind and humble with your words. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are endless“.
Speak the truth. We have seen in many movies that before a court or trial the defendant or witnesses declare “I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. These words are found in the Bible and are used in the confession as follows: “I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God. What I want to emphasize here, not for a trial or a confession, but for telling the truth at every moment of our life, and this includes living accordingly, sometimes we do not necessarily speak to tell a lie, sometimes our life is based on a lie. This is about being consistent between what you think, say and do.
In conclusion, be flawless with your words. This means using your energy correctly, in the direction of truth and love for yourself. If you agree with yourself to be impeccable with your words, that will be enough for the truth to manifest itself through you and cleanse any negative emotions that are within you and that will be reflected in everything you do and in your dealings with others. When you are impeccable with your words, you simply feel good, you are happy, and you will be at peace.
