“The way you use and choose words defines who you are. How you use words touches you as well as those around you. Without really thinking about it, you can change another’s thoughts, beliefs and actions by using the power of words.”
― Alex Uwajeh, Taming the Tongue: The Power of Spoken Words
By Marjorie Gordon-DeLee
Because there was so much going on in my life, I needed to create a few inspirational walls in my home to return to me the power, wisdom and strength I once possessed.
When I initially created these walls of inspiration with quotes from powerful people, I found myself reading those quotes each and every single time I walked past these walls. Reading each word every day until I started actually living by those words and became the words I spoke out loud. This behavior went on for months and months (beginning 1 year ago). As time passed, I felt myself inside becoming stronger and stronger with each passing day. It was amazing to see this transformation unfolded right before my eyes. Even though I knew me better than anyone else, I was still astonished to see that I was able to return to the person that I once was with even more confidence and strength than I possessed ever before.
Why did this happen? Well, it was because of the power of the spoken word. It is whatever you speak into yourself and of yourself that will make you or break you.
