The Power of Words: If You’re Not Holding Your Power, What Is?

The power of words is often something people take for granted. When you feel stuck or not fulfilled in your life, it’s a sign that you need to create a new way; this new way starts with new thoughts and a new mindset. 

The growth process is about gaining more awareness, understanding, and knowledge through all our life experiences. And one of the most important things to understand is the power of words you use on yourself. Make a habit of evaluating your own personal beliefs about yourself. It doesn’t matter what people say about you – what do you say about yourself? 

You become what you believe. 

The most powerful voice is the voice inside your head. This is why listening and paying attention to your words is so important. The words you speak become the house you live in. This means the words we use to communicate, think to ourselves and describe our experiences in life build an imaginary “house” or internal place within us. This “house” is the perspective we experience, interpret, and define the quality of our lives. Nowadays, it can be easy to forget that our words carry such significance, influence, and power. It’s easy to take our words for granted, to use them unconsciously and mindlessly.

Use the power of words to rebuild your “house.” 

We need to gradually and patiently change the words we use every day, day after day. This way, the “house” we “build” for ourselves is aligned with our personal values, desires, goals, wishes, dreams, and the overall good existence we deserve. 

Words are powerful and can rob us of our own power.

We often hear people talk about not giving your power away, which sounds simple in theory. But people don’t realize how it happens and how sneakily it happens. “I’m going to start the diet Monday,” or, “I’m going to start saving money after the holidays.” These statements are examples of how the power of words can rob us of our power without our intention. 

Saying the phrase “I’m going to X” puts you in the procrastination mindset that you will do what you want to do at some point in the future. That procrastination mindset sends the power forward, which means you have no power today. You’re basically saying that you’re a victim today, but you’ll have the power one day. 

Change your words to regain your power. 

Stay clear about where your mind is and your current state of affairs. If you keep your brain in your reality, your reality stays the same. The only way to change your current situation is to get your habits and beliefs to change. The quality of your questions determines the quality of your life. 

Your mindset and words are everything, but they are both things you can shift. You have to unwind what you believe. If you keep saying those things and operating from a limited or negative mindset, that keeps you stuck. That is what is holding power.
