Why What You Say Matters

Why What You Say Matters

Have you ever spoken unkindly to someone including yourself? What was the impact? Words are powerful; and when they are used to hurt someone, they can be devastating. The words you speak and what you say have a huge impact on you and others.  What you say matters!

Have you ever called yourself stupid, dumb, idiot? Have you berated yourself in front of the mirror because you may feel fat or unattractive? Every word you say is being processed by your subconscious mind and it begins to seep into your conscious self and the feelings of self-worth begin to dissipate.

What you say ultimately reflects what you believe. If you say , “I’m not a good coach,” you will never experience the success you long to achieve. You are literally setting up to fail before you ever begin. When you begin a thought or a sentence with a negative word, your expectations can never be realized.

This holds true when you speak negatively to someone. While you may apologize, the words have already been spoken; you can’t take them back. The person on the receiving end of the insult may take it to heart and the impact to their soul can last forever. We live in a world where words are used to attack, bully, embrace, nurture, disengage, provoke or inspire its our choice. When we choose to use language to tear down others up, we not only hurt them, we hurt ourselves because we are not operating from our Highest nature.

It is important to realize the affect words. Whether you mean to say them or not, they can transform the very essence of who you are. Children are especially vulnerable to words. Yet, adults often use unkind and insensitive words as a disciplinary measure. Eventually, they grow up with low self-esteem and confidence, feel unworthy of love and worst of all repeat those behaviors with their own children.

The next time you speak, think about your words; choose them wisely when speaking to others. Understand that one word can positively or negatively affect someone’s life; even your own.

I was abandoned by my birth mother and bullied as child. I always felt I wasn’t enough and that there was something wrong with me. It wasn’t until I began to discover who I am in God, what makes me happy, and how much of a badass I really am that I learned to love myself.

I have learned a lot in my many years of living….tune to this episode of SHINE to glean from my experience as I am interviewed by my friend and Shine Strategist Kierra Jones.

SHINE with Special Guest Faten Bazzi

Online Business Manager, Faten Bazzi, was born in Detroit, Michigan. Now a 25+ year resident of Brazil, she has years of professional experience that is committed to helping companies, and the people who run them, flourish. Preparing for this responsibility, she attended Baker College online, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Marketing. Although at the time she was also raising her three young sons, she still managed to not only excel in her course work, but even gained multiple online internships.

During this time, and as her love for the online business world grew, Faten saw her potential and realized her purpose was to help business owners. Loving her ability to work on her own schedule, it is her pleasure to help entrepreneurs free up their time, so that they can focus more on their businesses, and most importantly, their families. She and her team are dedicated to giving the tired and overworked a refreshing break from the stress of doing it alone.

Faten does this because, as an entrepreneur herself, she knows exactly what you are going through, what you are trying to accomplish, and what you’re trying to avoid. When you’re running a business, it’s so easy to get lost in the daily duties of keeping it afloat. Unfortunately, your hard work can also be what throws your balance between work and family way out of wack. With a mission to help you maintain this balance, Faten uses her years of professional experience, academic background, and honest nature to give you the time you need to get back into what you love most, without having to desert your business. Her biggest desire in doing so is for you to become more accountable for your much needed rest, so that you can be the best for not only your company, but above it all, yourself and your family and the clients you serve.
