Language is so powerful, it can literally change your life. Positive words such as “love”, “happiness”, and “gratitude” can be catalysts to strengthen parts of as well as promote cognitive function in your brain. This means that you can literally use language to make you feel great both physically and mentally. Imagine how motivating it is for players to hear their coach give their sports team a pep talk in the locker room before the big playoff game. Saying something negative or doubtful may not necessarily change the outcome of the game, but it would change how everyone in that room felt- and maybe how they played as a result. Simply put, words hold weight, and they are worth that weight in gold.
A Champion never says “I can’t.”
They say, “how might I tackle this?” and look for guidance.
By speaking positivity into conversations and reshaping how you think about obstacles, you can find yourself becoming exposed to new experiences and blessings that you never knew were possible.
Hungry to maintain your new vocabulary using positive language? Just remember to E.A.T.- Empower, Activate, and Tackle your goals. This can act as a guide for you to find out how to elevate yourself to a Champion level by planning out your steps to achieve your milestones.
Empower yourself by writing inspiring mantras, finding positive podcasts, journaling happy thoughts, or flagging your favorite bible passages. Realizing that you can become educated on positive language is empowering because it means you can only progress as you discover more!
Activate your plan. No matter what your personal goal is at the moment, you probably have something that you hope to accomplish. Find a way to activate your positive language and utilize it when speaking about or working with content relating to your personal goal.
Tackle your obstacles and fall back to your mantras to give you continued strength. Supercharge your goals with positivity and reap the benefits of powering through work sessions with a smile because you spoke out loud about how happy you are to be one day closer to your dream.
I challenge you this month, Champions to speak one strong sentence of positivity out loud whenever you begin to feel doubt or fear in your personal situation setting in.
“Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.” – Yehuda Berg
