Recently I've been focusing on a personal growth plan. One of the areas has been; changing the way I think and speak on a daily basis. It's happen many times, I'm in a situation and doubt falls into my mind and I end up voicing the doubt or fear. And yes one would say "Issy you are human, that will happen". But in reality we've allowed that way of thinking to seep inside us not knowing how toxic it can be.
Our words are like seeds
We are where we are today because of what we have been saying.
When we speak negative we stop the favor that’s upon our lives. Think about it, the negative thoughts will come, the key is to not say them, don’t verbalize them. All we are doing is becoming trapped by our words. I know it's easy to call a friend and start talking about our problems. Instead, talk about the good, not the problem. In life there are always two voices that are fighting for our attention; the voice of Faith and the voice of Defeat.... which one do you constantly choose?
Are you being trapped by your words?
With each word that is spoken we are declaring our future, our lives will move in the direction of our words. Think about it, we do it on the simplest to the biggest situations:
“I will never get that job, never lose weight, etc” - declaring defeat.
You cant live a positive life with a negative mind
Speak abundance, if we have a poor mouth we will have a poor life. If you don’t like what you are seeing start sowing different seeds. Start to say "I’m coming into overflow, I’ll have more then enough, I will encounter new opportunities, I will go to a new level." speak into existence and reap a harvest.
Whatever mountain you face, don’t let fear seep in. yes, the negative voice might be louder but you can easily quiet it out. Overcome the mountain, start declaring the good. "I'm going to get stronger and healthier." be bold about it. We should feel confident to wake up each day and say "I got this, something good is going to happen to me today" we have the favor of God, we are blessed, confident, we have what it takes.
Write down your goals, even the areas that you have been struggling with, areas that you need to improve. Develop your own personal "Growth plan" and start being wiser with your words. With kids I have been more vocal and wiser in what I say. Kids hear and repeat everything we say. If they constantly hear us defeated or negative, they will pick up on it. For that reason, I purposely speak and declare things over our home and myself.
Always remember, our tongues direct the direction of our lives, they will become our reality. I challenge you to do the same and write down your goals and lets move forward.
The bible says in Proverbs 18:21, "the tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat it's fruit."
Let's choose life.
