"The most important conversation you will ever have is with yourself." - David Goggins
We often talk about how Actions > Words and we believe this is absolutely true. However, we must also acknowledge how powerful words are.
Some believe, the word is the most powerful tool (and weapon) in existence.
Best-selling author, Paulo Coelho says; "Of all the weapons of destruction man has invented, the most terrible, and the most powerful was the word."
Words have the power to create and to destroy.
They can create a life filled with love, joy, and happiness. They can build our dreams and desires into reality. Or, they have the power to destroy everything around us.
I love the way Don Miguel Ruiz explains it in his book, The Four Agreements.
He says, "The word is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think and thereby to create your life."
"The word is the most powerful tool humans have, it's a tool of magic. But like a sword with two edges, your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you."
"Depending on how it is used, the word can set you free, or it can enslave you even more than you know."
I've come to believe, the words we speak and the thoughts we think show us who we are. They inspire our actions, define our beliefs and create the world around us.
Words create actions.
Actions create results.
Results create beliefs.
Beliefs create words.
As men, we must use the tools we have to create the life we want and the most powerful (and valuable) tool we have is our word aligned with our actions.
Yes, actions are greater than words, but words create and inspire all action.
We speak it in our mind before we ever take the first step and when we align the two and we become unstoppable.
Have an amazing week, and let us know if you need anything.
We've always got your back.
Live Brave. Live Bold. Live Bearded.
