Words are Freakin’ Super Heroes

Lately, I’ve noticed how much words impact my day, my mood, my outlook on life, my results AND the people around me.

Words are Freakin’ Super-Heros! A kind word can lift you up or save a bad day. They can describe who we are/once were, who we are not, who we want to be. They can evoke emotion and inspiration.

Words can also be Villains and weapon-like. Words can hurt and break. When used irresponsibly or without thinking, they can do unthinkable damage…to you and to those around you.

Your words impact others. Words can help as much as they can hurt, hinder or scar. The words you choose can lift others up or knock them down.

Your words impact you.

  • I’m a loser
  • I’m not good at …
  • I never get a break.
  • I can’t.
  • I never succeed at ___
  • I’d like to, but I could never do that.

Ow! Those words hurt! Perhaps someone else has told you that:

  • you can’t do that
  • you’d aren’t good at ___

Those hurt too…yuck! When we hear something often enough, we start to believe it, whether it is coming from someone else or from ourselves. True story. The words you use when speaking to yourself can do terrible damage and hold you back from succeeding (or even trying for that matter) the things you want in life and being the person you’d like to be.

These statements or beliefs only hold you back if you let them.

Words Are Freakin' Super-HeroesLet’s turn the statements above around to see how that can change the entire feel:

  • I love me, I’m human and sometimes make mistakes, but I’ve got this and I’m successful.
  • I am strong, smart and can learn new things.
  • Life may be challenging and hard at times, but I’m tough and appreciate the good things that come my way.
  • I can.
  • Although I may make mistakes from time to time, I can do the things that I desire if I put my mind to it and work for it.
  • That interests me so I’m going to give it a try. Everyone starts somewhere.

That’s right, your words are powerful.

Surround yourself with words that lift you rather than squash you. Your words impact you and everyone around you.

I’m holding you accountable…

You are responsible for the words that come out of your mouth and that you use with yourself. Choose them wisely. Be the friend to yourself that you’d like someone else to be to you. Unconditionally love and support yourself to help you grow, excel and heal, if needed.

What should you do?

Choose your words carefully; adjust your words so they lift, encourage and support you. Use words and phrases that align with the end result that you’re aiming for. Don’t allow any other person on this earth to define what you are or are not. That’s your job.

Be your own gate-keeper.

You control the words that come from you and the words that you hear or believe. You choose if and how other people’s words impact you. If someone tells you that “you can’t” do something, you decide whether that’s true or not.

Now THIS is where the Magic happens. It’s Your Turn!

  1. What is one thing you or someone else has told you that’s holding you back in life?
  2. How can you flip that statement around to serve you – to support, inspire and encourage you?

You have a choice. What will you do with your words today, tomorrow and in the future?

You’ve got this baby!
