Most are the time we get what we say. Our words becomes self-fulfilling prophecies. If you allow your thoughts to defeat you, giving in to negative ideas through your words, your actions will follow suit.
That is why we should be careful of what we say. Our words have tremendous power, and whether we want to or not, we will live according to what we’re saying, either good or bad.
Many people in our days live because of their words. They say things such as:
- “Nothing good ever happens to me.”
- “I will never be successful.”
- “I don’t have what it takes, I can’t do it.”
- “I will never get out of this mess”
Some people call even themselves names, e.g., I am good for nothing, which are words which pave way for failure.
Words are similar to seeds. By speaking them loud, they are planted in our subconscious minds, and they take on a life of their own; they take root, grow and produce fruit of the same kind. If we speak positive words, our lives move into that direction. Similarly, negatives words produce negatives/poor results. As the Bible says, we reap what we sow.
There is truly is power in your words. We have to be particularly careful about what we say during times of adversity or hardship, when things aren’t going our way.
To get through a tough time quicker and with better results, we must learn to speak positively as possible.
