How your words can transform your life
What have you been saying to yourself ? Could it be that you are destroying your dreams with your words? Do you know that ,what you say everyday is extremely important in determining the results you get in your life ?
There are people that always complain whenever you talk to them about their lives. They are ever narrating how they are disliked by everyone , how their job is a drag and their spouse a leech or burden, or how tough they are finding life generally.
Then there are those who take pride in advertising their sicknesses. They proudly tell you every detail of their ailment in the hope of getting sympathy.
We have been trained, in such a way to think that enjoying life and being prosperous is somthing attached to evil .
Yet, oddly enough, we are all striving in one way or another to be prosperous. We go to work and have businesses so we can make money. We want health, but we speak sickness. We want wealth, but we speak poverty and lack. We want happiness, but we speak misery.
Why are our words so inconsistent with our actions? Worse still, why are we sabotaging our dreams with our very own words? You must learn how to transform your life with the power of your words.
Your life is shaped by what you say. The Proverbs say: “A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Therefore, we must be mindful of what we say because it is the control that we feel we have over our lives.
Your tongue is your master tool. As an artist uses a brush to paint a work of art, so you use your tongue to paint the masterpiece or the nightmare that is your life. Every word you say is another stroke on the canvas of your life.
There is power in what you say , that goes way beyond the obvious and beyond what science can explain. It is not surprising when you realize that words brought the whole universe into existence: “and God said…”

So God has given each one of us that same creative power in our tongues . What you say determines where you end up more than what you do. If your actions and words are not consistent you will ultimately get what you say.
Elsewhere in the Bible, the tongue is compared to the helm of a ship. Though the helm is a small part of the ship, it has the power to direct the course of the whole ship. Your tongue is a small part of your body, but it has the power to direct your whole destiny.
This is partly because a word is simply a revealed thought. Therefore what you say is an indication of what you think. Conversely, your speech has the ability to influence your thinking. If you say something repeatedly you will ultimately come to believe it and regard it as your reality. Your words and thoughts reinforce each other.
This fact has led to techniques such as “positive affirmation” and “positive self talk” being developed. Many great men of our time, such as Zig Ziglar, teach such techniques and use them themselves. Ziglar has even developed a tool he calls the “ ziglar self talk card “.
Positive affirmations, for example, are simply things that you say to yourself that are positive. They are deliberate and thought out words that are in harmony with your dreams and that will help you to create positive words that empower.
Mark Allen puts it this way: “Affirmations are one of the simplest and most powerful things we can do to change the quality of our lives, and to create the things we want.”
All these simply point to the fact that we are more in control of our lives than we ever thought possible. But with such great power comes great responsibility. That is what scares most of us.
We must acknowledge our power and cease to be careless with our words and thoughts. Few people have the discipline and courage for such change.
For you to change your life , you must have the courage, capacity and will to change. If you want to achieve your dreams you must be careful with your thoughts and also mind what you say , so as to use the power of your tongue to tansform your life. It is a process. It comes with practice, patience and persistence.
Wether you accept this fact or not , these are principles that affect us all.
What you believe does not change the truth. The principle of gravity works whether you believe in it or not. The law of getting what you speak works – whether you believe in it or not.
Watch what you say from now on. Listen to what comes out of your mouth. Rule of thumb: If you do not want it, don’t say it. Pearl Strachan said: “Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs.”Remember, the power of life and death is in your tongue , it is through the control of the tongue do we control our lives. For you to change your life, you must use your tongue wisely to your advantage.
