“Words are powerful. They are the crux of our existence.”
Be it business, or personal, it shapes your life. It is crucial for getting the results you seek. To compel others into what you want them to do, words do the trick. That’s why they say, “choose your words”, and you better choose them carefully, because words are more powerful than you think.
Words sell. They persuade. They influence. They bring a smile on one’s face, dry tears, heal wounds, make us feel loved, give hope. They bring laughter and happiness into the world making it all seem worthwhile.
It can create havoc in thin air, create differences and more complexities in what once used to be a simple happy relation. And worst of all, words can even kill. Create wars, and sadly they often do.
Edward George Bulwer Lytton wrote this in 1839,
“The pen is mightier than the sword.”
So, what is this power that words hold, which can bring such joy and happiness? What is this important role words play in your life that can enrich so immensely and deeply? Aside from fact that words have the power to hurt or to help, to annoy or to persuade, to wound or to heal, what else can words do that can help you achieve all you can?
It is, simply …Words have the power to forgive, too.
