“If you plant junk, don’t expect to harvest jewels.”― Luke Taylor
“ Tomorrow is still in the making so plant good seeds…”― Sam Owen, 500 Relationships And Life Quotes: Bite-Sized Advice For Busy People
We have to be careful with the words we use to ourselves and to others. So here is another reminder – maybe the hundredth you have seen so far – about why your words are so powerful:
Some frogs were travelling through the woods one day. Two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw, they told them there was no hope for them. They ignored what the others were saying and tried to jump out of the pit. The frogs at the top of the pit continued to say that they should just give up. They would never make it out. Eventually, the one of the frogs listened, and gave up and fell to his death. But the other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Again the frogs shouted at him, “stop the pain and just die.” But as they continued to shout, he jumped even harder. Until finally he made it out. When he got out, the other frogs asked, “didn’t you hear us?” The frog explained that he was deaf. He thought they had been encouraging him.
From the story above it should be clear that our words have the power to encourage or discourage others; to make them continue to fight until the end or to give up and the first sign of trouble. Negative words have the power to kill dreams and take away our happiness. But somehow the words that we tell ourselves can do the most damage. If you never have a kind word for yourself, if you are never satisfied with what you have done so far, what you possess or where you are at in your life then you have already lost. when all we see are the grey skies and not the silver lining, then we begin to project our negative outlook on people we come in contact with. However the sad thing is, before we spread our negative words to others, we have already poisoned our spirit.
So let us agree today and moving forward, we will truly leave ALL negative words and thoughts behind…
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,Proverbs 18:21
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
