What I Think About The Power of The Spoken Word

Women with a bouquet of white flowers in her hand at the center of image. The quote The-how-to-it always comes to the person who believes he can do it is written above her head.

Since beginning my journey into the world of network marketing and mentorship, I have been exposed to the power of mindset. Each day I am reminded through my readings, from my audios and from my mentors and coaches that success begins in your mind. What you think, the words that flow through you mind daily, and your belief shape your future. I already had an understanding of this, but being witness to it from the new people in my life is amazing.

Quote from The Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg- the way we habitually think of our surroundings and ourselves create the worlds that each of us inhabit

It has only been been a short time since I began but I can already feel the transformative effects. It’s so great having people outside my own mind constantly reminding me that I can do it. The frequent validation, motivation and encouragement is the most valuable aspect of this new venture. As you know I value personal development and continuous learning. I like to think of myself as a life-long student and work in progress. I don’t think we ever truly reach our finally potential. I think our growth and development is infinite and only ends when we leave this earth. And who know maybe not even then.

Passage adapted from the book The Magic of thinking Big by David J. Schwartz

Even though I am loving this new journey, in quiet moments doubt and fear enters my mind. In those moments I have to remind myself that it’s my brain trying to protect me from the unknown. It is not a prediction of my success or failure. Only I can determine that. From the way that I talk to myself, the words I say out loud to the dreams I write out and put into the world. Your words have the power to write your future because it determines the actions you take.

When you find yourself saying, I can’t or I don’t know if I can do it, stop. The moment you speak those words you are conditioning your mind to look for ways to show you that it’s impossible. Replace those words with, I can learn or let me see how I can make this work. Teach your mind to look for possibilities instead of obstacles.

Have you ever notice that when something grabs your attention, you start to notice it everywhere? Like if your friend got a red car, you suddenly start see red cars everywhere. The cars didn’t suddenly appear out of no where, you mind simply began to focus in on red cars because it was now in your radar. Your thoughts and spoken words have the same effect. If you think about something a lot it or speak it out loud seems to become your reality. But it’s your mind responding to the triggers (words) you think or say. By focusing on a particular thing your mind seeks it out.

Therefore, if you believe that you can do something, even if you don’t know how yet and you think it, speak it or write it out constantly, your mind will look for ways to achieve it. But from the moment you let doubt in, all that work goes away and you have to start again. Remember our minds are designed to focus on the negative as a protective mechanism. As such it is much easier to focus on the ways things can go wrong than how it can go right. So that is why you need to work harder to fill your thoughts with positive and encouraging audios and images to wipe away those negatives.

Of course that doesn’t mean you won’t go through your own struggles and challenges. But it will help you cope better in those difficult times in your life.
