Powerful WORDS to Positively Change Your Life

Powerful WORDS to Positively Change Your Life“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” ~ Rudyard Kipling

Words can move mountains and bring about a revolution. I believe the most powerful positive weapon we each possess is our words. But just mere words don’t bring about change. Those words have to carry weight, have to mean something and must have a positive energy all their own to bring about positive change.

We each possess the power to plant a seed of love, success, happiness and healing with our words. In the process of using these powerful words, we not only nudge others positively, but reveal a bit of ourselves too. We reveal who we are, what we think and what we believe in.

So what are these powerful words that can bring about positive change? They are a combination of just short single words or a phrase….To use these words optimally in your speech and in your interactions creates healing magic on your well being. Here is how…..

Powerful WORDS to Positively Change Your Life

“I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.” ~ Emily Dickinson

There was an old romantic song I used to love that went something like this “Words, don’t come easy to me. How can I find the way to make you feel I love you, words don’t come easy…”

Its funny how when we want to really speak from the heart and share our true feelings, the words don’t come easy. Yet, when we want to lash out or get angry, those words just pour out. It just goes to show how negatively entwined we are. We need to work at infusing our life and our speech with powerful words that can bring positive change in our life.

1} “We” instead of “me” : In your daily interactions with people, try to infuse more consolidating words like ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ etc . Using these words means you are being a team player and that you are bothered enough about the opposite person to include him/her in your life. On the other hand when you use words like “I”, “me”, “myself” all the time, you come across as self involved and self indulgent. For example instead of saying “I am so busy today, and can’t meet up.” say “Can we meet up another time for coffee?”. When you think about others hearts just like your own, we wont hurt them nor will we hurt ourselves. It expands your heart to include everyone and everything in it.

2} Use appreciative and asking words: There are simple words that show a person they are valued and they generate positive emotions and create heart satisfaction. Taking the time to sincerely say to another, ‘Thank you, I really appreciate your efforts,’ or ‘We couldn’t have done it without you!’ can really boost morale. Being appreciative and acknowledging others by asking for their opinion only takes seconds to say but can help create a sense of well-being in others. By acknowledging and appreciating others you are opening up to being more compassionate. A softer, compassionate heart is also a healing heart.

3} Use “love” all the time: I love to use the word “love”! Its my absolute favorite word. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and makes the opposite person feel what I am feeling for them in an instant. How amazing that one word “love” can have such a profound effect. To be able to instill a sense of being loved with the simple use of this word when you really feel it, is indeed being love. Right?!?!

4} Use “sorry” Asap : Our egos have a life all their own. Sometimes even though its our mistake, we refuse to accept it or apologize for it. We do this cause our ego gets the best of us. Let go of the “I” and say “Sorry” as soon as possible. Saying sorry softens your heart, makes you accept your own shortcomings and gives you a starting point to begin healing. Many of us don’t even know where to begin healing ourselves….this can be a great starting point.

5} A polite word: I have heard people answer their doors and their phones with a stern “Ya!” …no ‘hello’, no ‘hi’…just a rude ‘YA!”….I often have a hard time remembering what I have to say when I hear a rude tone on the opposite end. I agree I might’ve caught them at a busy time, or bad time, but that is no excuse for rudeness. However busy I may be, I always say ‘hello’ and then politely say, ‘Could you please call back another time, I have something urgent I am looking into…” or something like that. My second grade teacher taught us the 3 golden words which are literally etched in my psyche- Sorry, Please and Thank you. I’d like to call them the 3 polite words too! If we react to everything around us in a negative way, how then can we be expected to stay positive. Staying positive in high pressure situations is what matters most to your positive change.

“Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.” ~ Maya Angelou

To be able to infuse our words with love, with depth, with feeling is to be humane!

Everywhere we look today-tv, newspapers, magazines, books, internet, facebook, school, college or work….its all FULL of the use of WORDS. Its upto us how we use our words.

Will we use our words to create positive healing change or will we use them negatively to create pain? The choice is ours to make in every single moment of every single day.

A wise spiritual teacher said “The tongue of the wise man is behind his heart, and the heart of the stupid is behind his tongue.”

Speak from your heart, but speak with love, dignity and knowledge.

A beautiful heart is revealed by the words it expresses.

  1. The power of words to bless and uplift. Choose wisely! 😄 Thanks Zeenat.

  2. Hi Zeenat,

    I agree, words of affection, love and care don’t come easy. We may be having great emotional attachments but it is so difficult to put them into words yet they come so easily when we write! Isn’t it strange?

    However, it is always good to be appreciative which has a unique positive quality. Words of gratitude add a great grace to our personality and endears us. Yes, words do reveal our heart, which possesses so many virtues only if we are sensitive enough to use the right words!

    Thank you dear Zeenat for sharing invaluable advice.

  3. Thank you Zeenat for all these *helpful words*.
    Thank you for the Emily Dickinson quote…a great poet we all love.
    Please allow me to share these words that Jimmy Durante sang so wisely and tenderly
    (notice the one word that is missing)

    It’s so important to make someone happy
    Make just one someone happy
    Make just one heart to heart you, you sing to

    One smile that cheers you
    One face that lights when it nears you
    One girl your – your everything to

    Fame, if you win it,
    Comes and goes in a minutes
    Where’s the real stuff in life, to cling to?

    Love is the answer
    Someone to love is the answer
    Once you’ve found her,
    Build your world around her

    Make someone happy
    Make just one someone happy
    And you will be happy too

    All my best to you and your family Z

  5. Words are so powerful so we need to choose wisely! Great post! Thanks Zeenat!

  6. The words we speak along with the thoughts we think are so powerful and with your wonderful suggestions one can truly create change. Our word can heal or harm 🙂

  7. Zeenat, lovely, so lovely.

    I also know this: When I share what I moved to say or teach, and confine what I say to “I” messages it lands much lighter and more effectively than when I am pointing a finger (saying “you” or “you should”). Words! Lots of magic and power in words.

    Blessings,
    Sue

  8. Very inspirational! I’ve been a writer my whole life – and now author – so of course I agree with your point about the power of words. I hope you won’t mind that I have a cautionary note about #4. Many women already have a habit of apologizing for everything under the sun and the reality is it’s seen as a weakness in the business world. I’m not saying I disagree with your point about being accountable for our actions, just that there has to be a balance. Thanks for the great read!
