Words are much more powerful than most people realize. If you have goals and dreams in life, write them down. Speak them out. Words have an amazing, powerful effect on your subconscious brain. That in turn has a powerful effect on your life. Once you energize your subconscious, it finds ways to accomplish things that are often remarkable.

Suze Orman, the author of the bestselling book 9 Steps to Financial Freedom started out as an ordinary salesperson. She was afraid she would not meet her sales goals, so every day she wrote out these words many times a day “I will sell $10,000 worth of product this month.”

It didn’t take long before she did, in fact, begin to sell $10,000 worth a month. Then she began selling much more than that monthly.

She used the same strategy to become a bestselling author, speaker and radio and TV host. She is now an international speaker.

Scott Adams, the author of Dilbert comics, used the same strategy. He was working in a small cubicle in an office, doodling during the day. Finally he decided to pursue his dream of writing a comic. He began writing but newspaper after newspaper turned him down. He decided to write out his dream 15 times a day. “I will be a syndicated cartoonist.”

Then a newspaper decided to run his comics. Later another and another picked up his comics.

Then he decided to write something different. He wrote “I will be the best cartoonist on the planet.” 15 times a day. Now his comic is in over 2000 different newspapers around the world.

Your words have incredible power. In fact, an ancient Jewish proverb says “Your tongue has the power of life and death.”* That means that your words have power to ultimately cause things to happen, even life or death. Your words have power to do amazing things.

Be very careful, because your words have destructive power also. You have probably heard of children being scolded by their parents and developing a bad self-image. Most kids have that experience. They say it is important to praise children 4 times for each negative, or scolding.

*Proverbs 18:21
