The Power Of Words #5MinMotivation

We all have a power within us.  A power that can build or destroy.  Words have that power.  They have a strong impact in our daily lives and though once they are spoken, they can no longer be heard, their echoes can be imprinted on our minds or in our hearts.  Was there ever a time where a few small words changed your mood immediately during a bad day.   What about the reverse?

In this week’s #5MinMotivation, I invite you to reflect on the next words you choose to say.  You can use your words to invest in your relationships as a leader, a parent, a spouse, or a friend.  Or, you can use words to slowly chip away the deposits already built.

“In every circumstance, you cannot always choose the emotions you feel, but you can always choose how you react to these circumstances.  Your words are ALWAYS your choice.”


Here is a short video that quickly depicts the Power of Words.  It is less than 2 min. but the lesson is powerful.


Which words will you choose today?  What type of impact do you want to make?


“A simple choice of words can make the difference between someone accepting or denying your message.  You can have a very beautiful thing to say, but say it in the wrong words and it’s gone.” – Mohammed Qahtani


Our lives can get pretty hectic and it can be easy to get lost in our actions.  When we are so focused on what is ahead, we forget to pause, reflect and find ways to energize our minds.  These 5-minute motivation posts are meant to give you that recharge. The goal is to give you a 5-minute Vitamin for your mind through quotes, posts and videos.  It is also meant to challenge your thinking and inspire you to take action.
