It’s NOT just a word!!!!
What’s in a word?
Consider these two sentences:
- I could kill you right now.
- I’m really frustrated with you right now.
Some would say they mean the same thing. No they don’t. Say the words and really think about how they make you feel. Your rational mind will tell you they mean the same thing but your feelings are a better reflection of what your subconscious mind is thinking.
I think George Carlin’s “Seven words you can’t say on TV” example of the “f” word is a great example. He replaces the word kill with the “f” word. “Sherrif, I’m going to kill you now. I’m going to kill you real slow. Now substitute the “f” word and all of a sudden the whole situation is actually hilarious!
The point I’m trying to make is that a word is not just a word. Each has it’s own meaning and is powerfull in it’s own right. Words change how you feel and therefore how you act. Don’t be careless with your words, they could cost you your life both literally and figuratively. I highly recommend reading Tony Robbins’ “Awaken The Giant Within” for a detailed discussion of this subject.
Remember, the next time you are in a heated discussion, the words matter. It’s NOT just a word!
Make it a great day,
P.S. What am I thankful for today? I’m thankful my wife is safe at convention. I’m thankful I’ll see my grand daughter tomorrow! I’m thankful for the fresh cut grass. What are you thankful for today?Please share ... by
