The power of your words for success. Change your words, change your life.
You know, I am an avid personal and professional development junkie. I read books on a continual basis, both hard-covered books, as well as I listen to audibles, I listen to audio recordings. I also take online courses. I invest in myself immensely. I do a lot of live courses. I am constantly practicing what I preach. And Brian Tracy delivered a quote years ago that has always landed in me very solidly when it comes to the power of words for our success. What he said was, “Your ability to communicate with others will account for a full 85% of success in your business and in your life.” I want to say that again. Brian Tracy said, “Your ability to communicate with others will account for a full 85% of success in your business and in your life.”
Look, words are that powerful. Words can empower, just as easily as they can disempower. Words can inspire, they can destroy. Words can shape yours or someone else’s esteem, or they can hurt you or hurt someone else and devastate you or them. They can make you or break you. Words can make you or break you. Words can accelerate your ability to achieve success just as easily and quickly as words can devastate your ability to accomplish success.
When I say words, I’m not only talking about the ones you speak out loud. I am also referring to the words we think, the words that we speak internally to ourselves.
