DO YOU LISTEN WHEN YOU SPEAK?
Achieving goals is not an easy task. In order to accomplish our goals, we can
follow a guide, write them down, think about what we want. However, if we
really want to accomplish our goals, we need to think about our overall be-
ing. Thinking positively and having a wonderful attitude towards everyone
and everything around us will help us reach our goals.
One way to achieve happiness and reach our goals is by carefully select-
ing the language that we speak. Yes, I am referring to the use of language as
words can be beneficial or harmful, depends how you use them. Using cer-
tain words in your vocabulary can help you in shaping your mind and attract-
ing what you want.
How does it work?
There are certain words that the mind recognizes as positive words instead
of dwelling on negative feelings. Those feelings can bring you down. For
these reasons, try using or substituting the following words:
When someone asks you a question and you want to decline, you can an-
swer with “Yes, and” instead of “Yes, but…” or “No”. The reason for this is
that your mind opens up to more possibilities. For example, if your friends
ask you if you want to see them and you are not sure you want to see them
that day, you can answer “Yes, and I would love to go out with you to dinner,
how about next week?” By doing this, you open up yourself to wider ac-
ceptances instead of closing them down.
