the-words-that-will-haveThe most influential words that you hear today won’t come from your spouse, your parents or your kids.

They won’t be spoken to you by your boss or colleague.

They won’t be the praise of your most loyal client or the scathing criticism of your most loathed nemesis.

They won’t be found in a great book or blog (not even this one).

They won’t come from a podcast or a sermon, no matter how phenomenal the speaker is.

The words that will have the most influence over you today are the words that you speak to yourself.

You know it’s true.

So be kind.

Be encouraging.

Be positive.

And be very, very careful and very, very deliberate with the words that you use with yourself.
