Writers, Mind Your Words – How Our Statements About Ourselves Determine Our Future

How Our Words Determine Our Future

As writers we are aware how important it is to choose our words carefully. Expressing the deeper meaning our characters actions, takes a deliberate focus upon each aspect of the story, from what words we put in, to what words we leave deliberately out.

But do we take as much care of our words when it comes to ourselves? Are we as careful about the statements that express what we are, how we feel and what we expect?

I advise you to take a moment and evaluate how you finish most of these sentence.

I am…

I feel…

I will…

I do…

These seemingly simple beginnings of a sentence have a far more powerful force upon your existence than you might realize. What you choose to put behind those words determines your day, the way people feel about your presence, and most importantly the way you feel about yourself.

If those sentence fragments often finish with a positive sequence of words, then you are doing a fantastic job working toward whatever goal you have in life. Your actions spring from these platforms with a burst of energy and move you closer to your end goals.

If however, your sentence conclude in negativity, expressing distress more often than not, those statements have a profound effect on keeping you in that negative state. You continue to feel bad, you continue to look at a situation with negativity, and through those dark colored glasses, miss opportunities and potential expansions that are right in front of your eyes.

You can talk yourself into success, and you can talk yourself out of it.

Your choice.
