We’ve all heard the saying: “Actions speak louder than words.” I wonder if sometimes, the opposite is true: can the words we speak reveal more about ourselves than we care to admit? Sometimes, the choice of words signals inner beliefs that may be holding you back. Does the way you talk about money reveal a conscience of abundance or limitation? Does your language support the image you want to project or takes away from it? Do you appear confident in front of others, but insult yourself privately with negative self-talk? Becoming fully aware of your own word choices is not easy. I’d like to cut down on the use of the verb “try,” but I am sure, it slips in more often than I notice. Asking a person close to you to listen to how you say things and give you feedback may be a good way to start. What words do you want to eliminate from your vocabulary? What would your Best Self say?
