What we say can have great impact. Words lead to beliefs. Beliefs lead to action. Action leads to change. And change leads to liberation. How we speak to ourselves, the way we talk to others and the thoughts and utterances that we deliver into the world have power.
Most of us understand that how we choose to talk to others, and the words we use toward/about someone is very important because they can impact what that person feels or how they see themselves. This is much the same when it comes to self-talk and how we choose to speak to ourselves and what we plant as a seed in our own inner thoughts.
