TPJ 67: The Power Of Words

TPJ 67: The Power Of Words

Many people have been struggling with feelings of powerlessness and negativity. But what if I told you that you possess the ability to empower yourself and create positivity in your life? That’s exactly what I’ll be discussing in this episode.  [03:50] Our thoughts and words are powerful. [06:48] Culture has "watered down" certain words and concepts. [10:54] When we use exaggerated words, it sets us up for failure. [13:28] It's making us fragile. [18:41] Let's disempower our negative experiences. [21:42] Challenges make us stronger, not weaker. [23:10] Let's be more discerning and selective with the words we're using.  [24:09] We can choose how to interpret our challenges and circumstances. Let’s reflect on the words we’ve been using lately. Are they exaggerations? If so, they’re weakening us and holding us back. Let’s commit to flipping that script and interpreting things in a way that strengthens us and finds the good in our lives.     If you enjoyed this episode and it inspired you in some way, I’d love to hear about your biggest takeaway.
