Words can tear down or build up. For example you can tell a child “You will never amount to anything” or you can say “I see you have an ear for music.”
When you see a penny on the sidewalk you can pick it up and say “Money is coming to me today.” Or you can walk on by and think “I’m too good to stop and pick up something so insignificant.”
You can tell your spouse “You are amazing and you look stunning.” or you can say “I can tell you didn’t get much done today.”
The words you choose are more powerful than you can imagine.
