"I believe the tongue is the greatest force in the universe. Your tongue has the power of life and death. Pay attention to your words and those around you". ~ Keith Craft
Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie. We are going to dive into "Your Divine Fingerprint" by Pastor Keith Craft.
YOUR WORDS ARE POWERFUL (Chapter 4)
Today, we're going to talk about the power of your words, character, core values, and mindset.
The point of reading is to learn, gain knowledge, and take action. This book will help you figure out who you are, and your divine fingerprint. It will help give you an understanding and an appreciation of what you have to offer. Your values, and your distinct 1% factor of what you're called to do.
I love the topic today, this is one of my favorite topics to talk about. I also talk about this a lot, and if you've already heard it, it's a good reminder.
"Words are of course the most powerful drug used by mankind. I believe the tongue is the greatest force in the universe. Our Words have the power to elevate our thinking. Your self-talk and the words that you speak will determine whether you think negatively or positive thoughts and whether you feel bad or feel good".
"Truly, death and life are in the power of our tongue. How you frame your words will be how you frame your world. Never let anyone's words to you be stronger than the words within you. And let those words that are spoken through you, be stronger than the words spoken to you by others".
If there's one thing I always talk about, it's what you're speaking over yourself and speaking over others, and internalizing what people are speaking over you.
THINK BE DO...
We're talking about the power of our thinking. Pay attention to the words that you're speaking. We are also talking about the power of your thinking, what you allow in your mind and what you say in the morning.
Are you constantly dragging yourself out of bed saying, "I have to go to work", or do you say "I get to go to work"...
I'm actually in a lot of messenger chat threads, and some of the conversations were saying "I wish we had this", "I wish we had that", and "I hope it changes in the future"...
It wasn't actually negative, but one girl totally flipped the script. She's said, "You know what? I think that's great, and that would be nice, but I'm so thankful for this", "I'm so thankful for how it's offered", and "I'm so thankful I get to try these"...
She looked at it from a different viewpoint, and she worked on her mindset. In our company, we have an incredible group of ladies, and I just got to see a 1% switch of what she saw in perspective. The words she used in that conversation, changed how everybody was looking at something.
That's it! You have the opportunity to do something with the knowledge and wisdom that you already have. We also talked about the power of the people that you're around, your environment, your thinking, your reading, and your words.
You have the opportunity to change any environment that you're in, just by having the awareness of what's going on, changing things with your words, and being an encouragement.
I'm so thankful that I get to be here and work with all of you.
I'm so thankful for my job.
I'm so thankful for my family.
I'm so thankful that I get to go be the chauffeur all evening.
I'm thankful that we can provide an opportunity for our children to play all of these sports.
I'm thankful and blessed to get to drive my children around.
I'm not saying that all of you complain about it. I'm just saying your words have power. Your words can shift an environment ever so slightly by just what you're speaking over that environment. Your words have power over yourself, and the things that you're thinking, and speaking over yourself.
We're going to dive into certain words as you're developing you're 1% better, there are things that we're going to work on. "Thinking", plus "Being", plus "Doing" equals "What you have".
If you understand the power of your thinking, the person you're becoming, and the actions that you're doing, it will be a result of what you have.
Intimacy or authenticity
"People who decide to be one percenter (1%) choose to develop themselves and become the kind of person that they would want to have a relationship with".
Working on yourself, working on your mindset, paying attention to your words, and being the best version of yourself, are also setting you up for looking for those relationships that you actually want to be in.
Being a better version of yourself will also help other people elevate themselves.
And that's what I saw in the chat thread this morning. I could see that she was working on her mindset which changed the atmosphere of the thread. Not complaining, it was just interesting to watch. I could see and hear her thought process, which was pretty incredible.
So we're going to work on all of those things, your character, trust, how you think, be, and do. So that you can get what you want to have. This book is about developing your mindset, and character, and developing different things in your life to be the best version of you.
We're going to go down the route of your core values for chapter 5. Do you have core values? When you work on yourself, you get to overflow into other people. This morning, the girl specifically has been working on herself, and therefore she was able to switch a conversation ever so slightly, to just bring thankfulness into the conversation and people were able to get a different perspective.
Have an awareness that mindset is important, and what I speak is important. When I'm in an environment, I bring a different level of thankfulness, gratitude, and light. I am working on myself and therefore I can give to others, and that's really important.
When you're working on yourself, and the way you speak, you also are going to make better choices.
You're going to choose better for yourself and work on your mindset. Choose to have gratitude for the day, and choose to encourage people in your home or in your office. So when you're presented with foods that might not align with your goals, or the opportunity to skip your gym workout for something else. You know you've worked on yourself, and you know you're going to choose your best. You know you're in a state of gratitude, and you've worked on your mindset.
You've already worked on yourself so when the donut appears, remember that you have goals and you've worked on your mindset so you can actually say no. You've got goals and dreams, and you are intentional. So when other things arise that tried to derail you, you can say "No, it's not for me".
You can choose to make the 1% shift, and understand where you're going. Start working on your core values, and we're going to work on elevating you as a person so that you can elevate the environment that you're in.
Tomorrow, we'll dive into core values. There are lots of things we're going to dive into. But the awareness today is the power of your words.
"I believe the tongue is the greatest force in the universe. Your tongue has the power of life and death. Pay attention to your words and those around you".
