Feeling defeated? Powerless? In this economy, I wouldn't be surprised to hear "Yes" in response to such questions.
The good news, however, is that you have at your disposal a "secret weapon," a strength that you may not fully appreciate: the power of words.
Words can uplift, encourage, and inspire. Words can invite, welcome, and heal. The key, however, is to remember this bit of wisdom: "There's a great power in words, if you don't hitch too many of them together."
So keep your words simple, and down to earth.
Here are a few of the powerful words you already know and can start to use right away.
~ Thank you.
~ I'm sorry.
~ How can I help you?
~ What are the possibilities?
What are some other powerful words that you would add?
Remember: "Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world." Attributed to Buddha.
