Have you ever dreamed of being able to write or give a speech using POWERFUL WORDS? Words which will connect with others and move them on an emotional level? Words which can be of benefit to someone or help people in some way?
Imagine yourself writing something which moves people on a deep, emotional level which proves helpful to them. Imagine delivering a message in a talk which brings people to their feet to applaud in appreciation of you, for a message you just delivered because they know it has changed their life. Imagine people writing letters to you or sending emails to you expressing their appreciation for how much you were able to help them.
You have the ability to do all of those things and more using your own powerful words. You do not have to be a poet. You do not have to be a literary genius. You do not have to conjure powerful words up from nothing. They are already there inside of you, right now.
Powerful Words exist in you from every good deed, every surprise, every kind word, every great day, every momentous event when you were impacted on an emotional level. Theses events left you with words to describe how you felt and some of them are POWERFUL.
Every great victory, every tragic loss, every happiest of moments, every saddest of times, every hurt, every sting, every joy, every hug, every rejection, every high, every low and the impact they had on you and the words you would use to describe them are still all there inside of you. Some of the words, the ones you would use to describe your life, your experiences, and your truth are powerful words.
Sharing Your Powerful Words Makes It About Them and Not You.
Your words may not seem all that powerful to you but, there is a Great Secret about powerful words, where they come from and the impact they have on other human beings.
Sharing your Powerful Words and stories isn’t about ego or being self-centered, not if you are trying to help people. The sole point of telling a story to someone is to establish a connection on some level between you and the receiver of the story. You are giving them the gift of experience, your experience. The power of story lies only in the telling.
If you are setting out to help others, in any capacity, it doesn’t matter how powerful your words seem to you. It only matters how powerful they feel to the people who are waiting to hear your stories, who need your words to inspire them, the people you are trying to help. If the emotion generated inside others by your story is strong the connection you establish with them will be strong.
You already have within you POWERFUL WORDS that can change the lives of others for the better. They reside within the stories of your own life experiences. You can learn how to connect with them so you can connect better with others on an emotional level.
Some Words You Have Never Heard Are Also Just As Powerful
Sometimes, just as powerful as the words you have heard are the Powerful Words you have never heard, have rarely heard or have longed to hear. Words like, “you’re right, you’re smart, you’re a winner, you can do it, I appreciate you, you are a great person, I love you, I’m proud of you!”
Many people reading this have been told their whole life long “you aren’t good enough.” Or, maybe you have been telling yourself you aren’t good enough. I am here to tell you, right now, you are good enough.
The words you have never heard, but have a need to hear, are just as Powerful to you and need to be explored. Why? Because there are others out there who also need to hear Powerful Words they have never heard before The words they desperately need to hear may be your words.
They need to know they are not alone. They need you to tell them. They need your words to inspire them. They are out there waiting, listening for you to share your story as only you can.
You may say I cannot write or speak Powerful Words. Well, I say not only can you but you must! You may say, “I have no Powerful Words to write”. I say, you do! Everyone does.
If you feel you do not have Powerful Words to share, or if you feel you do but don’t think you can share them in an effective way, I want you to do me a favor right now. I want you to put your hand over your heart and read the following sentence out loud.
“I know I have Powerful Words within me. I know I have the ability to share them and I am going to find a way to begin sharing them with those I wish to serve.”
Between the pages of my book, POWERFUL WORDS, I can show you how.
Do you feel you have a message to deliver to the world? Do you feel you have the ability to connect with others on an emotional level using your own words of power? Do you know what your words of power are?
