All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

This Week´s Inspiration
Watch Your Mouth!


Something that is said; the act of speaking or of making verbal communication; the expressed or manifested mind in utterance
Utter To give public expression to; to put forth or out

Do you listen to what you say out loud to yourself or others?

The content of this ezine is supported by some of the substance presented in the previous issue about Truth and the Principle of Duality.

  • You can’t have positive and negative, belief and skepticism, and faith and doubt at the same place, at the same time.

I have written about the Law of Attraction and Learner Optimism—the new movie The Secret emphasizes those laws—but my omission of one very important component left an incomplete picture.

I now have deep insight into how every single word we speak influences our outcomes and results.

Note: Focusing on the words you use with yourself and others, every day, is a different process from “positive thinking.”

  • Words are powerful; they constantly affect our environment.

  • Our lives today are a reflection of our previous words and thoughts.

The Law of Attraction works for both positive and negative—it does not discriminate. Sometimes, when I truly believed I was focusing on success, the words I used were manifesting negative results.

Even when we are just kidding around, our words have power. Without even realizing it, we can get into the habit of saying things that contribute to our own failure.

Here are examples of negative statements that establish unwanted directions and results.

  • Our printers always break down when we do a large print job with a deadline.

  • The chances of getting that deal are slim.

  • We are not ready for a lot of new business.

  • Our business is not that well known.

  • You can’t find any good employees right now.

  • All managers have hidden agendas.

  • I am always underpaid for what I do.

  • I usually miss something.

  • I’ll never do that.

  • I can’t write that well.

  • I could never forgive that person.

  • I am always at odds with her/him.

  • We’ll never get along.

  • They never get it right.

  • I feel a headache coming on.

  • I am sicker than a dog.

  • Why can’t I do anything correct?

  • That is going to take forever to get done.

  • There are no good men out there.

  • There are no eligible women out there.

  • At this rate, this will take forever.

  • Break a leg.

  • I am just dying to go.

  • I love him to death.

  • That scared the life out of me.

  • My weight is difficult to lose.

  • CRA/IRS is always difficult to deal with.

  • That will never happen.

  • Son, will you ever pay attention?!

  • You are constantly being a disruption.

  • You can’t expect much from teenagers.

Your words reveal the truth of your thoughts, your heart, and your beliefs. The energy attached to your words will manifest itself in your life and become your fence line.

I am now aware that the seemingly harmless comments I was uttering were not positive—and they were limiting not only my success but the success of all the individuals with whom I was in contact—from my family to my staff.

Over 30 years ago, my Grade 10 English teacher told me I would never be successful and certainly never be a good writer. For years, I repeated that statement to myself and others.

But, over the past 5 years, I shifted my self-statements to affirm I had the ability to write quickly and well. I have written over 1 million words, including more than 100 Living on Purpose ezines. The fact is that I have always had the ability to write but I did not believe that I could.

Last week, an antipoverty group demonstrated in Vancouver. They always voice what is not being done, that no one can be trusted, and that no one accepts the homeless or likes them. Well, they are perpetuating the attitudes they are stating out loud. And through their words, they have taken their conflict to a level that is alienating the entire city.

There are real consequences to the ideas we permit to live our minds. Whether our words are about hatred, ignorance, gossip, or humor, our words influence us and our children.

The old saying Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me is false. Words are everything–and they do hurt.

The reality is that you are in charge of the words you utter.

Take responsibility for your words.

The My Source EXPERIENCE Journal™ was written to help people clarify their life’s vision. As part of the process to start uttering only positive words, I recommend the following assessments to give you a holistic picture of your future.

This Week´s Action Steps

Watch Your Mouth!

  1. Are you paying attention to the words you utter?

  1. Are your words positive or negative?

  1. Even if you are just kidding, your language is impacting your life. Are you happy with your current condition, results, or outcomes?

  1. What have you been saying that is not supportive of the life you want to live?

  1. To break the habit of negative words and thoughts, find someone who is willing to listen to what comes out of your mouth and hold you accountable.

  1. Be aware that not everyone will support this “clean-up” approach. Some will disagree with the process. It does not matter what anyone else says. You stay the course!

  1. Limit your interaction with people. Invest your time with individuals who will support you in this quest to purge your negative or unsupportive words.

  1. We live in a world of duality. You can’t have positive without negative, so be aware of what is coming out of your mouth.

  1. You can’t input negative subject matter from TV, video games, etc., and expect to have positive output.

  1. We all have gifts and talents that will compel and motivate us. That’s why I wrote My Source EXPERIENCE Journal™—to help individuals get connected to their life purpose and vision. Source will lead you—and others—through the individual journey of discovering personal truth.

  1.  For additional confirmation about what is true for you in all areas of your life, use CRG’s Personal Style Indicator, Job Style Indicator, Stress Indicator and Health Planner, Self-Worth Inventory,and Values Preference Indicator.

  1. Be aware of the words you utter. They do create your reality.

Until next time, keep Living On Purpose!.
