Hearing is Believing
Words are powerful – what words do you believe?
I read this book that had a lasting impact on me. “Hearing is Believing.” The concept is relatively simple. We believe what we hear. Our mind takes the information and engrains it into who we believe we are. When you apply this to various scenarios, it makes you stop and think.
- Think of a mother who describes her children, “He’s my fast learner, she’s my lazy one, he’s the one that will succeed.”
- Think of siblings picking on each other, ”he’ll never get it, you can’t do that”
- Think of a couple, “I don’t want this, you are always critical.”
I understand that sometimes people have emotions and just “say” things. But with words being so powerful and we believe what we hear, we must always choose our words wisely. You can’t take them back. Words are so powerful!
What phrases do you say to yourself when you look in the mirror? It’s important because we believe what we quietly say to ourselves too.
If we thought these are the last words this person will hear from me, what do I want them to hear, to believe? Imagine what words, thoughts, would come out and make that impression for them to believe. Imagine how it could impact many people.
What words would you like someone to hear and believe?
What words can you say to someone today to help put them on their path to their purpose and passion…Dreamful Living?
My words for you today…I believe in you.
You are amazing. You are beautiful. You have a special gift in you.
