“Language is very powerful. Language does not just describe reality. Language creates the reality it describes.”
If you want to change something in life, whether vocational or personal, think about the words you use as water pushing the wheel on a water mill forward. It isn’t the wheel that creates the electricity or grinds grain into flour; it is the water that drives the wheel which provides the real power. So here are some thoughts on using language as the flywheel of change:
- Write it down!
- Spend time on the language, the tone, the intent. Press hard to ensure that the words chosen capture your genuine desire.
- Share it! Cast it out there to become a catalyst for thought and momentum creator. Your words will help others see a new future, a better tomorrow, a different outcome.
- Turn the words into a story that others believe in, share, and extend.
- Do it again, and again, and again…
Then you can participate in the new reality that your words helped to create.
