The words we use everyday do more than just complete a dialogue of communication. They actually help us form our mindset and prepave our experiences. Most of us don’t realize that. In my last blog, I mentioned about life in a vicious circle and how to begin changing that. As a follow-up, today I want to take that a little further by talking about what we talk about. Research has determined that our thoughts travel 900,000 times faster than the speed of our voice. With that, before we even speak a word, it has to become a thought. Thought becomes things. So, in our minds we have already created the scene before the words come out. Since we are a reactive society, much of what we speak is a reflection of what we are thinking- consciously or not.
To challenge a negative mindset, if we focus on the actual words that come out, we can cause an interruption of the inner voice, that reflex mindset. Choosing kinder words will begin to prepave our experience to one we will like better. When we change the words we use everyday, we will begin to feel uplifted and then everything else in our day will have an opportunity to get better. This changes the frequency of the signals we send and they will begin to attract better signals back. We become more aligned with what we want and the more we do it, the more it will multiply. Before long, we can experience more joy, abundance and peace.
Almost 30 years ago I came across a tape by Zig Ziglar, a world reknown sales training specialist, on improving sales. He is still performing speeches and training seminars to help people along the way today. As I am constantly researching my materials and getting ideas, I had the opportuntiy to review again another of Zig Ziglar’s presentations. I was not surprised when he was talking about the words we speak everyday to change your environment. Take a few minutes and watch this humourous approach to helping one lady change her outlook on life. Click Zig Ziglar or copy paste this into your browser : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRMogDrHnMQ
