Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 7)

say 7
Today we are going to talk about #15 on our list of things we should say more often.

You can do it!

Those four simple words can be so powerful. The power of positive thoughts is so underrated in my opinion. It is a proven fact that we use only a portion of our brains in our daily living activities. Mentally, we are all capable of doing so much more with our brains than we even realize.

There is a whole realm of positive vs. negative thoughts we have in our minds and how they affect the outcome of things that we don’t even understand yet. There is a lot to be said for if you really believe that you can do something, you can will yourself to doing it through positive thoughts. Of course the opposite is true. If we don’t think we can do something and we fill our minds with negative thoughts, we probably won’t do it.

People, by nature, can easily start doubting themselves. We tend to sell ourselves short when it comes to what we are capable. It is during these times that a spoken positive word from someone else can really boost the attitude of a person. One person telling another that they believe that a person can do it can really make a huge difference in how the person approaches what they are trying to accomplish. It can totally change their attitude. It can be that one last little push that gets them over the hump and gets them to where they are trying to get to.

I think that sometimes we don’t realize how much affect we can have on other people. We can change people’s days for the good or the bad. Make up your mind to always be a person who affects someone else’s day for the better.

Our assignment this week is to find at least two people who seem to be struggling with something in their lives. It can be marital problems, a hard project at work, a person trying to run 5 miles, even as simple as a person who can’t find something in the store. Give that person positive reinforcement. Tell them that they can do it and show that you really believe in them. It can be someone you know or even a complete stranger. Be bold and affect the attitude of someone today.

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%
