Words are far more powerful than many of us realize. In fact our entire experience of reality is shaped by words. Try describing anything without words and you’ll see it’s nearly impossible. Reframing and rewriting the words I said to myself and about myself has been one of the biggest ‘ah-ha’ breakthroughs in overcoming my fears and has led to my success in business and life.
This week I received a message from a former client whose words has made a significant positive impact in my life.
“Your hard work and dedication have inspired me to become more than I ever dreamed I could. Thank you for pushing me to my limits and beyond. You have inspired me to become not just a better leader, but a better person as well. Together we are better, Bonnie. Together we can Be More. Have an extraordinary day.”
I’ve always thought when given the opportunity, you should leave people better than where you found them. At times I questioned whether I was doing this enough in my own life.
But it was these words of encouragement in the message that renews my courage and desire to continue to show up better each day to inspire and serve others.
Here are my words of encouragement for you:
- You’re amazing just the way you are.
- Your potential is unlimited.
- To somebody out there, you’re the most amazing person in the world.
Pass on the encouragement. Give somebody in your life some words of encouragement today. It might be your kids, your significant other or the people who work with you. Just do this for one person. It might make a huge difference in changing the direction of their lives.
Happy NEW Year!
