Words Create Worlds
Yesterday my pastor said, “words create worlds.”
Let me say that again and let it sink in, “words create worlds.”
The Importance of Positive Self-Talk
I have transformed my life, career, dreams, goals and mindset with positive nourishing words. I have done a complete 180 in the past due to implementing positive self-talk. I talk aloud to myself because if I think something, say it and then hear the words it helps me remember and believe it.
I urge you to speak positive words aloud.
The Effects of Negative Self-Talk
I submitted 317 job applications around the country in 2013. I heard nothing back for months than I received 28 rejections via snail mail and 23 rejections in my email. All of these rejections were received within a 3 day period! I felt so defeated. However, what made this situation worse was my negative self-talk.
My spirit felt crushed. My mind turned against me. How could I possible succeed? I was stressed out and confused. I started to doubt all my decisions.
I could not change the situation nonetheless I had to change the negative self-talk. It was degrading my health and my energy levels. I was exhausted all the time and at the edge of losing faith in my abilities.
So I decided to thank God for my blessings, health, family, & friends. LOUDLY! I spoke aloud to drown out that horrible little voice in the back of my mind. I spoke positive words aloud multiple times a day until I started believing it.
Since I couldn’t find a job, I started a law firm. I was so scared to start that law firm but my back was against the wall, I had no choice. The weeks of positive self-talk bolstered my confidence and I pushed past the fear.
Words Create Worlds
I wrote this post to remind myself how powerful words are and how I am shaping my business with my mindset. Everyday I say aloud, “Ivy Interviews Africa will soon be a business and not a hobby.”
I know I can make it happen.
