One of the ways we generate energy is as a result of the words we use. Every word spoken or read creates an image and energy in our minds.
Did you know that we actually remember positive words better than negative words!
Here’s an example: Don’t dump rubbish here! Sounds OK. It communicates! But in your mind something amazing happens when you read this – amazing but not good. Why not good? Well, when you read an instruction that is worded negatively, you have to switch tracks from “I can’t dump rubbish here” to “where in the world AM I supposed to dump the rubbish!”
What’s better and more effective to say is: “Dump rubbish here.”
Eliminating one word turns the negative order into a positive order that can be easily followed and avoids having to switch around in a thought dilemma, which wastes time and creates negative energy!
Here are a couple more to consider:
So think carefully about the words you use and the positive energy they bring to you and to those around you.
This month, practice using positive words and let me know how you go. You could always share how you are going on the MindShifts Facebook page.
