Do you know how powerful your words really are?
It’s hard to fathom that words have much of an impact nowadays, especially when many words are wasted throughout a day.
This “verbal vomit” as I call it comes in many forms, including horrible advertising campaigns, annoying coworkers/friends, wasted space on a website or in the form of 140 characters on Twitter. Let’s not kid ourselves, Twitter is a constant stream of randomness besides a news feed.
As much fun as it is to say anything you want any time you want, what impact are you actually having? What change in the world are you making?
So I’m going to challenge you.
If you have faith in yourself, you would have faith in other people. How so? Well, if you do things the right way (stay honorable, don’t cheat or lie), you thereby make it possible; aka another human being could do it too. But you have to set the standard.
So I’m asking that you help set the standard by sharing the things you’re doing to set a good example. What are you doing that’s an attempt to make the world a better place?
And you don’t have to be saving whales with Greenpeace to be making a difference. You could be:
- Making a conscious effort to not say anything negative
- Listening to positive music
- Sharing cool, uplifting articles & quotes
- Letting go of hate, fear or greed
- Giving money to charity
- Turning off the tap when brushing your teeth
- Learning something new so you become even more epic at what you do/love
- Giving up smoking
- Loving despite being hurt
Now do me and the world a favor and share it. Share your story in the comment below. Or share it with me on Facebook or email and I will use it anonymously in a post. And of course you can always tweet it to me on Twitter @chichtech.
