Want More? Say It. (The Power of the Tongue)

Think about where you are in your life. Are you happy? alone                    Are you as successful as you’d like to be? Do you have trustworthy friends? Are you excited about waking up each day?

What’s missing?

What do you lack?

What makes you smile?

Now, think about your conversation. What do you talk about mostly? People? The things you want? Ideas you have? coworkers

What do you like to listen to for entertainment? Music? Gossip? News?

What we say has a profound effect on what we experience in life. 

If you don’t believe it, try this experiment:

Help yourself to a “Positive-Speaking Diet.” Limit yourself to speaking only positive, honest, happy, up-beat things for 5 minutes.

 Now examine how you feel after those 5 minutes.

 “The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:21 

Want more? Speak it. 

“I am a healthy, happy millionaire!” should be your minute-by-minute mantra.

If you say you’re broke, you’re broke.

If you say the pain is killing you, it will kill you.

This is a principle of life. It works for everyone, no matter who you are, or where you live, or what your status in life may be.


If you want things to be different, change those things that you have the power to change. Then, accept the things that you cannot change, and look for the hidden treasure in it…there’s Always something hiding there that’s intended to help you grow.

  1. Speak the love, the joy and peace you seek.  
  2. Talk about wholesome, praise-worthy things to yourself as well as to others.  
  3. Face your challenges and speak directly to the Universe, and  
  4. the Universe will respond in kind, according to  what you say! 



How to Keep Your Desires & Goals on Track with a Journal

Keeping a journal will keep you focused. Staying focused will help you to manifest your desires and goals! 


When we write down our feelings, keep them safe, private, and stored, then return to re-read them later, something magical happens.


Actually, the magic is the science of inner workings of the human mind.

Researchers, scientist and experts alike, all agree that putting our feelings & emotions & thoughts into words clarifies, defines, as well as, makes things that are otherwise confusing, understood.


Need proof? Try this quick test:

  1. Take a sheet of paper and a pen or pencil or crayon.
  2. Set your iPhone’s stop-watch to 30 seconds.

A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath

Often, a soft answer will melt hostility!

If it’s possible, as much as it depends on you, live peaceably with all men. (see Romans 12:18)

Not just those in your household, your family, or your friends, but with all people, everywhere.

Hostility breeds hostility. But if you encounter someone who is hostile, an act of love will diffuse the hostility in them, which is probably not intended toward you in the first place.

(I have found that sometimes a person will act like they are angry with you, when, in reality, they are angry about a situation.)

Try this: Trade places.  

Put yourself in that person’s place and try to feel what they are feeling. Show them you care, at the risk of having your feelings bruised! Many times, you’ll survive the “bruise.” And often, they will turn into a softer spirit!

If trading places works, the sense of accomplishment, alone, will make your day!
