Here are two simple keys:
- Thinking before we speak is one.
- Realizing and remembering the power of the spoken word is the other.
Words can have magical powers. Here’s why. The words we speak can become prophecies. Studies have shown that teachers who encourage and believe in their students form students who are more likely to surmount difficulties and ace their studies. Coaches who inspire their players form teams that win in more ways than one. Parents who give their kids words of support help to form children who grow to become more confident and positive. Couples who tell their partners every day how much they love them have better relationships. Friends who inspire their friends with caring words foster loyal friendships. And bosses who give positive and helpful feedback develop faithful, hardworking employees.
