“Watch YOUr Words” : Repeat anything enough and it starts to become YOU. The words you consistently select will shape your destiny. People who feed themselves with a steady diet of negative words are destined to have a negative attitude and vice versa.
A number of us react by saying that we’re “angry” or “upset” or even “furious”, “livid” and “enraged”. Your physiology and subsequent behaviour would dramatically alter. Your BP would rise. You’ll feel tense all over. On the other hand, if you spoke of the situation as “annoying”, or “I’m peeved”, you’d feel much more relaxed.
Change ‘I’ve been destroyed’ to ‘I’ve had a setback’ or ‘I prefer’ to ‘I hate’ .. instead of ‘I’m determined’ to ‘I’m unstoppable‘ or from ‘feel okay’ to ‘Feel phenomenal’ or ‘I feel awesome’ rather than awful. Each time you say, ‘I’m not good at maths’ OR ‘I can’t remember names’ – you’re programming your mind for failure. It all boils down to your attitude. You have a choice. Consciously choose words that will point you in the direction of your goals.
“How are YOU?”: How many times in a day you are posed this question? It’s a significant part of our daily conversation. Negative responses: lousy, terrible, I’m tired, Don’t ask … Passive responses: I’m okay, not too bad, same old same old, fine … with both the above responses; a. How do you feel? b. How does the listener feel? Does it excite you, NO? Then how can it excite the listener? Do you want to spend time with someone who thinks that life is ‘not too bad’? People who use mediocre words will develop a mediocre attitude AND get mediocre results.
POSITIVE responses: Terrific, Fantastic, Great, Excellent, On top of the World .. You already feel better, feel energized, feel excited. JUST FOR THE COMING TEN DAYS USE THESE RESPONSES and note the difference. You’ll start feeling ON TOP OF THE WORLD.
Your words are a self-fulfilling prophecy. You repeatedly state that our life is wonderful, you start attracting and begin to move in a positive direction. Remember: You don’t need talent, money or good looks to have a great attitude. You just need to get in the habit of using a high-energy, positive response, and you’ll get the same exciting results.
After my stint in the uniform, I joined the corporate where I earned a sobriquet: Passionate Prabir. Each time I use my name now, how do you think I feel? Get/ give yourselves a name .. something that goes with your character or personality … think this through and then with your NEW name. Make sure the adjective rhymes with the first alphabet of your name like Vibrant Vishwas, Kind Kushal, Radiant Roopam, Joyous Jit, Spectacular Sanjana or Motivated Meeta. And all this … SAY IT WITH A SMILE and a sparkle in your eyes. It doesn’t matter whether or not you completely and totally feel … but soon, you’ll start living your name. People will notice the difference and YOU will be surrounded by positive people.
Make the change! Make a difference.
