Have you ever taken a moment to listen to the people around you speak? No, I mean really listen. If not this is what you should do. Over the next week, do some deliberate listening to the people around you. Your mom, your spouse, your boss, blue-collar workers, white-collar workers, etc. As you listen, try to pay close attention to the words they use often. Then take a look at their life to see if it matches. Chances are, as they say in the secret “what people speak about they bring about.”
Does your boss talk about success? Is he/she successful? What about other people around you? Is what they talk about showing up in their reality? For instance, if you have a friend that keeps talking about bills and debts, are they attracting wealth or more debt and problems?
I ask you to do this exercise because sometimes you can’t see the harm your own words are doing to you. So, perhaps it’s best to see how other people talk so that you can understand how words influence people’s lives. Once you can see how words are positively or negatively influencing others, then you will start to be more strategic in the types of words you use. Incorporating better words into your vocabulary will help you start to change your subconscious mind and attract better things.
This month, the word is “plenty.” Instead of thinking about how much you don’t have to pay for this or that, start thinking about the word plenty. Use the word even when your mind clearly sees lack. The more you start to see plenty in your life, you will start to attract plenty and stop attracting, “just enough” or “barely making ends meet.” You can never attract an abundant life if the words you use out of your mouth reflect lack.
Plenty – (noun) A full supply
