HindeSight #97: Do you think before you speak?
The Power of Your Words to Shape Outcomes
Your mindset affects the way you think, which affects the way you act and what you say, which affects how you are viewed by others. Especially as a leader, or someone who has authority, it is important for you to not only watch your words, but also the thoughts you have before you speak your words. Listen in on this episode of Full Focused hosted by Michael Hyatt and his daughter Megan Hyatt Miller for more.
Your Words Have Impact, So Think Before You Speak
Words are arguably one of the most important tools humans have. How you use this tool can affect people for a very long time, if not, forever. It’s important to take a minute to evaluate what you’re about to say before you say it. Whether you’re talking to a coworker, a relative or a child, your words linger and can be taken to heart, even to people around you who you might not even be talking to directly.
“The tongue has no bones but is strong enough to break a heart. Be careful with your words.”
Choose Wisely: How Our Words Impact Others
Your words have meaning and can make a difference, so always speak with mindfulness. Even a simple comment can forever make an impact—either uplifting or defeating. Encouraging words are a powerful force, but discouraging words are equally powerful, so make sure to choose wisely.
