Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 1)

say 1

Several months ago, I saw a link on Face book to a video where this little boy was standing in front of a board and he went through 20 things that we should say more often.  It was absolutely adorable.  As I thought about what he had actually said, I began to realize the wisdom in what he was saying.  He was absolutely right.  Each and every one of those things he mentioned are things we really should say more often.

I wanted to share these 20 things with you and show you the video.  I realized however, that if I list all 20 things and give you the link to the video, you will read through them quickly and some of you might actually take time to watch the short video.  Most of you would think it was great, just like I did, but then a day or two later, you will have forgotten all about it.  I really want us to take the time to really think about each and every one of the things we should say more often.  If we see the whole list at once we might remember one or two of the things from that list, but would forget the others.  If we look at them one at a time and then really try to think about that one thing over the course of the week, we will be a lot more likely to remember more of them and actually start using them more in our lives in the things we say to others.

For that reason, I am going to turn this list into a long blog series and we will look at one of these things we should say more often in each blog.  The blogs will be short, but I invite you to read each week and try to find ways you can say that thing at least once over the course of that week.  If you are really an overachiever, you will find a way to say it three times over the course of that week.

I am also going to wait until the last blog in the series to give you the link to the video.  Once we have gone through each thing on the list and tried to say them more, your reward will be to see the boy saying those things.  He takes them to a new level and it will really brighten your day.

Now I hope you are on board with this little experiment we will be doing.  Take the rest of this week to buy into what we are doing and really commit to trying to say all 20 things more in your life.  I think you will be amazed at how your attitude can be transformed through this little experiment.

Check out the second part of this blog series next week and we will get started.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
