Words Have Power

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. – Robin Williams

In this quest I have been on for personal growth, one of he things I have been doing is reciting affirmations.  Why? because words have power, and what are affirmations?  They are words.  Words that are positive statements that are repeated to impact and affect both the conscious and the words have powersubconscious mind. When you repeat them over and over again, those words, or affirmations, have the power to change your world.

One only has to look at the media to see that words have power, and that power can be used to influence people’s thoughts and ideas.  And while I care about news media and real news and fake news, that’s not what this is about.  This is about you and how you can use words and ideas to change your life.  Something as simple as looking at your reflection in the mirror every day and telling yourself that you are awesome and amazing can boost your mood.

When you think about it, what do you have to lose by making positive statements to yourself about yourself? Absolutely nothing.  Now if talking to yourself in the mirror makes you feel a bit like a loon, or a narcissist, then why not write your words down.  Remember teachers making you write your spelling words five times each?  There was a reason for that. It helped to lock them in your mind.  I don’t think you have all that much to lose, and you have a lot to win. So say your affirmations, or write them, but whatever you do, use them.  Say nice things about yourself, verbalize your goals. Your words have power, and you may as well use that power to improve your life.



You Have the Power – Challenge Day 4

No matter what people may tell you, words and ideas can change the world. – Robin Williams

Such profound words from such a funny man.  Funny, but very insightful.  Think for a second about Robin Williams.  In his far too short a life, he made us laugh and cry.  He influenced us in so many ways.  His many roles as an actor and comedian touched us in so many ways.  I grew up with him saying “I am Mork from Ork. Nano Nano.” I say him in theaters 
screaming out “Good morning Vietnam,” teaching prep school boys to love poetry, revisiting Neverland as an adult Peter Pan, saving Aladdin as the Genie and being the worlds best nanny as Mrs. Doubtfire.

I know, I know you’re probably thinking that Robin Williams was famous.  He was in the movies, and on television.  He may have influenced the world, but that’s because everybody knows his name.  And while that is true, it is also true that we all have within us, that same ability to change the world.  It all starts with you.  Every change you make in your life impacts the people around you, enacting change in them.  That impacts the people around them.  It’s like ripples in a pond, moving out in a ring growing bigger and bigger.

Don’t get me wrong, I would love love love for my little blog posts to catch fire and blow up the internet and fill the world with positive thoughts.  I really would!  And who knows, that may happen.  But right now, I’m changing me, and I’m sharing my positive thoughts and my positive attitude with my students.  Hopefully it’s impacting them and the people around them. It’s a start.  So I’m starting with me, and I know that my words and ideas will make a change in this world.
