You love should that science is now catching up with what the wisest, most successful and happiest among Practitioners in Personal Development (Motivational Speakers) have known for years: the words we speak shape our thinking, mold our behavior and construct our beliefs.
Neuroscientists are discovering that the pre-frontal cortex (the area of the brain responsible for higher thinking) is connected to the part responsible for our motor activities.
In other words, the quality of the words you think and speak have striking power to influence and elevate your actions.
Every day, you hear so many people using the language of victims. It’s all about how they can’t get fit or strong or that they can’t become more productive or that they can’t do what needs to be done to create a life they dream or realize their vision.
And, of course, what they speak about comes about. And their words regardless of whether verbally or non-verbally expressed become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But there are two words that will have an almost magical effect on your life once you start using them. These words are: “I CAN.”
For example, when you learn a new idea to raise your confidence, say “I can make this my new normal with a little focus and practice.”; When someone offers you an opportunity to improve your performance, say “I can get this done swiftly and excellently.” ; When you face a fear or confront a challenge, say “I can turn this into a gift…and see this as a blessing.”
Related to the words you speak are the things you focus on. Most people don’t really see the world the way it is. They see the world as they are. That is through the personal lens of our most intimate beliefs – 80% myopiac!
Look for good and you’ll find it. That’s just the way the brain works. Wish for a disaster and it drops in your lap! Hunt for success, and you’ll get it. It’s not a mystical process. It’s just that the brain can’t focus on a million bits of stimuli at once so it selects out what you’ve taught it to think is unimportant.
Dear Reader, I truly hope all these hours I spent blogging these messages for you are inspiring you to step up your game and become the person you dream of being. All need I for you is to shine like the morning star. And our world needs to see your greatness. Period.
