Yesterday I posted a hesitant, anxious blog, representing my own struggle on this journey.
Today I read a challenge to “take captive every thought and every word” and make it bow to belief.
Therefore I will start with this simple first step… eliminate these words from my vocabulary:
- I can’t
- I don’t think
- I don’t have the time
- I’m afraid of
- I don’t believe
- It’s impossible.
Omitting these words is not enough. A sports team needs more than just a good defense to win; it also needs a powerful offense. So, mobilize your own offensive assault with the words you choose.
Second, I will build positive mental connections and commitment by using these power builders:
- I can
- I will
- Expect the best
- I know
- I will make the time
- I am confident
- I do believe
- All things are possible.
I posted these words around my house to remind me of this belief.
The power of one’s actions is preceded by the power of one’s words. Speak with power to bring out the best.
