Growth Through Words

"Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder."
-Rumi

“Is anyone even listening?”

It can be discouraging to speak when we believe others won’t listen.🔇

In situations where we want to be heard it can be tempting to raise our voice in the hopes that someone would listen.🔊

This thought is misguided.😧

"Oaths are but words, and words are but wind." -Samuel Butler

If they don’t want to listen, they won’t

Whether someone chooses to listen or not, is their personal decision.

We are unable to make their decision for them.

If we want to be heard then we must speak in a manner in which someone would want to listen.🗣️

Being agreeable is essential in finding a willing listener.😁

"Never lose a chance of saying a kind word." -William Makepeace Thackeray

“I want to say the right words.”

Then be honest.🙏

Our approach can always be refined.

It can be difficult to find the “right” words to accurately express how we feel.

As long as we remain honest and pursue effective communication we will have the “right” words.🥰

"Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill." -Buddha

Reciprocity In Words

Our Words constantly have an impact on us and our environment.

The moment we speak about something, all able listeners gain awareness of what we seek to express.

Life in our environment that can relate to what we speak about will take notice and be drawn towards our Words.

Likewise, we will also hear what we say and be impacted by it.👂

We will be drawn towards or away from what we say depending on how it makes us feel.🤨

When we speak honestly, our Words become a constant reminder to ourselves and our environment of who we are.😧

Our Words become a constant reminder to ourselves on how we should act.

"Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another." -Napoleon Hill

Be Delightfully Sincere

We can always elevate our words such that they are both honest and agreeable.😇

Through being both delightful and sincere we can always make the most of our communication.

So long as we strive to communicate more effectively we’ll become able to do so!🥳

"Speak only endearing speech, speech that is welcomed. Speech, when it brings no evil to others, is a pleasant thing." -Buddha

"Speak ill of no man, but speak all the good you know of everybody."
-Benjamin Franklin

"Understanding is the heartwood of well-spoken words." -Buddha
