Words That Encourage
Author: Byron Pulsifer, ©2012
It is a funny thing about certain words and phrases in that some can impact in a positive way and others do not inspire or bring good thoughts at all. It is all about choosing the phrases that speak directly to your needs, desires, or what is bothering you at a certain time.
It is also important to realize that adding a positive phrase in words that encourage to your daily routine can only help not hinder.
Words of encouragement are more than words - they are thoughts and direction written by a host of people who either have had to overcome their own personal issues or concerns, or by those who know first hand from their professional experiences what it takes to move forward in life. Sometimes, though, inspirational messages come from a story of a person's success, or simply the recoding of their thinking as it pertains to the human factor from personal observations.
In the long run, it doesn't matter where or what thought or story send you a positive message, the important element is that you pay attention to it, read it, but most importantly think about it with your full concentration. This is very similar to just glancing over a legal contract, reading the words but not really concentrating on what the real message is. If you ignore the legal implications you do so at your own peril much the same as ignoring the real meaning of words of encouragement by simply reading and not thinking about their valuable message.
The special and important way to use these words of encouragement is part of knowing the value of wisdom and that wisdom comes through to you loud and clear. It is not just a matter of having a message of inspiration sent to you by email either unless, of course, you want it or need it. It is something like taking a pill when you don't really want it or need it. But, all of us whether we know it or not could use these wise words in our life.
Fill your daily well with what is vital, what is required. If you need more, take more. If your well is overflowing, give some to others who could use it.
And, do not forget that assimilating these words into your normal speech patterns will also send a special message to others who would be thankful without expressing it to you. It is quite amazing how these messages heard over and over start to resonate within you and within others.
This principle about sharing your newfound thoughts and beliefs as well as behaviors came to light in a different way not that long ago. I was speaking with a few friends one day at a coffee shop and the conversation was about current concerns in the community about choosing a new mayor in the upcoming elections. One of my friends started to talk about being honest and forthright in what he was looking for in a candidate for mayor. The other friend piped in the conversation and added hat the person must be able to demonstrate that ethics and a clear daily demonstration of these ethics should be visible at every council meeting.
I asked them both why these were important to them in choosing a candidate. Almost in unison, both of them started to speak about what the true value of a person is that was consistent with what they had been reading about personal and professional ethics. I asked them specifically what they had been reading.
Each friend responded that they had been receiving daily inspirational and motivational quotes on their work computers from several quote sites and had started to talk frequently about what these quotes meant in everyday life. They both had focused on ethics as something that seemed to be missing in community politics so had wanted to push for ethical behavior in all their daily dealings.
The power of quotations is not just in the words but also more in the thought processes that they can develop. Reading a quote does not make it powerful; the use of its message does.
