Do you believe that what you say affects you, others, and the world around you—both positively and negatively? Words can either lift up, or tear down. What you say can be hurtful, harmful, and discouraging; or healing, encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring. Words shape our beliefs, attitudes, and feelings. Your choice of words can either create positive or negative energy. The words that you speak will impact your own happiness and the happiness of those around you.
Saying positive words about others is a positive force that elevates them and expands the positive traits they possess. Saying negative words about others is a destructive force that tears them down and produces an environment of hurt.
Speaking positively about others affects them positively, while speaking negatively about others affects them negatively. So invest your time in finding right words—for wrong words can be destructive. Promote health and healing by speaking right words.
Speech is a gift that has been given to us by our Creator. Are there some areas in your life where you need to begin to speak positively in order to encourage, lift up, and heal yourself and/or the people around you? Make an effort to educate, enthuse, energize, uplift, and elevate yourself and those around you by the words that you say.
