Bite Your Tongue
So how many of you apply the old saying “if you have nothing nice to say, do not say anything at all” when you’re talking about yourself?
I am a firm believer that the words you speak will create the life you live. I had a habit of always saying to myself and to others “I can’t lose the weight”, “this is way too hard”, “I’m never going to change”, “I’m a hopeless fat slob”. – You know what, when I was saying those things…………. It was true! How can any one change if that is what they are thinking. Speaking those negative words over myself accomplished nothing but eliminating my possibility to succeed.
Instead I’m learning to change my thoughts and speak words of life over my circumstance. If I can’t tell how things may turn out instead of saying it is impossible, I’m going to say….”hmmm, how do I make this a possibility?” I’m also learning to be happy with the small changes and not be in such a hurry to see the results. It hit me the other day that taking it slow and doing it correctly is setting up a Strong Foundation! I rather have that then a foundation that can be blown away.
Growing up I was always told that I can do anything that I set my heart & mind to. I remember thinking, “yeah, yeah…..sure”, but you know what they were right! (Yeah family you heard me, I said you were right…. Those words taste a lil funny….hehehehe) But the truth is, if I stay determined and focus on the positive things and speak positively I will begin to believe them and one day see them.
So remember everyone, you will create the world you live in by the words you speak…. What does your world look like?
