Today I Will Speak Positively.
In Hippy Affirmation Day 19 I focused on thinking positively. I postulated that first we need to think positively before we can speak positively. Thinking and speaking are inextricably linked. Think about it by trying this exercise. Try to say something without thinking about it. You can’t, can you?
Thinking positively means to expect good and favorable results. When you think positively you are prepared for health, happiness and a good ending in any situation. With this type of mindset you can create the life you want and need. Speaking positively is an essential part of this process.
Most of us are largely unaware of what words we choose and why we choose them. Essentially, we usually use words that we have been trained to use. Our speech is a behavior inherited from our family of origin or the people who influenced us as we were growing up. It is time to evaluate our speech to ferret out the words that are working against us – meaning those that keep us from creating the best for us.
What does it mean to speak positively? It is the structure of our words that help us to get the things we need the most out of life. To speak positively we want to ask ourselves these questions:
- What words do I choose and why do I choose them?
- What emotions result from the words that I choose?
- Are my words mostly positive or negative?
I encourage you to ask yourself these questions then adjust your language accordingly. Then observe how your life changes (including how you feel about life).
