As most writers know, good words are like the Duracell bunny: they are powerful and long lasting. ‘I have a dream’, ‘Their Finest Hour’, ‘Be the change you want to see’: we all know who said them, when and why. The words are simple yet they remind us how powerful we can all be.
Many of us understand the power of good words when we hear them. And yet most of us are pretty careless when it comes to the words we speak to ourselves. ‘I’m stupid’, I’m swamped’, ‘I’m struggling’.
If we want to be powerful and long lasting, use good words.
