Words are most powerful tools or weapons to make or break a relationship, increase or decrease ones stature, praise or criticize and can kill or give life to a person. No wonder it is true that a person can be killed just by words at the same time these words do have the power to give life. Words when properly used can create a positive attitude in others who are listening.
The power of Words:
Once there was a 5 years old boy who is studying kindergarten. He asked his mother why her stomach is growing so big day by day. She says that he is going to have a new sister within a couple of months. This boy after coming from the school used to go straight to his mother and started singing a song to his sister who is in his mother’s womb which goes like this.
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You’ll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away.
One day his mother indeed gave birth to a baby girl, but unfortunately the baby had no life in her. Doctors after long examination declared the baby to be dead. The boy and his father went to see the child who is dead. This boy doesn’t know that the baby is dead but as soon as he see’s his sister he again starts to sing the song “You are my sunshine My only sunshine…” and you know what? to everyone’s surprise the baby did respond to that song and she started to move. She lived and what made her to be alive again? I believe words do have power; this boy was literally imparting life into this baby from months before she actually came into the world.
Same time words do kill a person I don’t want to share any story though I know many incidents. Some people can give such a profound speech that a person who listens to them will not even care to give up their life. Many people simply end up their life by committing suicide for very silly reasons that somebody said something to them.
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.
These days not only speeches but writings also do influence a person. It is you who can write a post with positive attitude in it. There are no plugins to do this for you or to check the level of positive attitude contained in your post like an SEO plugin or so.
There are something’s which plugins can’t but only a human can. To optimize your post to a search engine robot you use a plugin but to optimize it to a human it requires only a human. – Vijesh
Story of how Positive attitude matters:
Long ago a king calls for a fortune-teller to see what he could predict about his future. The fortune-teller told that all his family members are going to die very soon. The king got very angry at his prediction and he sentenced the fortune-teller to death. Now king asks for some other fortune-teller to predict his future. The second one knew what happened to the previous fortune-teller. So this time he says Hail Oh king! Oh majesty! Your future says that you would outlive everyone in your family. King becomes very happy and orders his minister to give him many costly presents. The message given by both the fortune tellers is the same but what mattered in both instances? It is the way of presentation that mattered.
Now as a person who writes a blog should write an article in such a way that it creates a positive attitude in the one who is reading. Tweak your article like the second fortune-teller. This doesn’t come in a day but it needs a lot of practice. You could impart many positive things in your readers and you know what you too can influence people around you. So as a saying goes
If you want to change the world, change yourself. If you want to make the world a better place, make yourself better.
Do you have a positive attitude in you?
So to write positively you should have a positive attitude in you. Let me help you in showing how your attitude is? See the image below and read it loud.
What did you read it? Did you read it as No Where or Now Here, if you have read it as No Where, then you are probably struggling with negative attitude. If you read it as Now Here then keep going you are definitely here. So I think you have decided whether you are no where or a now here blogger. Now don’t ask me what if I have read it as both may be you have both good and bad then.
I have seen a video which is posted long back in YouTube which gives a simple message that you can change your world by changing your words.
Change Your Words, Change Your World
I think by now you might have understood the essence of this post. Positive attitude helps a blogger to change his fellow bloggers and his readers.
A successful and inspirational blogger is not the one who earns 6 figure income, gains millions of Facebook, twitter, and loyal followers but who actually produces successful and inspirational bloggers.
I want to share a small joke on how one can use their words to hurt others. This joke is just for fun.
The Golfer asks the Gypsy, “Are there golf courses in Heaven?”
She replies, “I have good news, and I have bad news…”
Golfer, “What’s the good news?”
Gypsy: “The good news is that Heaven’s golf courses are beautiful beyond anything you could imagine!”
Golfer, “How could there be any bad news with that?”
Gypsy, “You have a game booked to start at 8:30 tomorrow morning.”
The word’s we speak or write can inspire or discourage a person, so we should be careful while writing a post or a comment. Writing a positive comment helps a person to write even better. We should not be selfish over others success or moved by our own success. We need to help people to walk the same path of success as we did in order to produce inspiring and most beautiful blogging community. This post is directly inspired by my mistakes and indirectly by my friend Angela McCall a professional graphic designer. Above all its God who helped me in putting the words in the article. Are you interested in developing a positive attitude and imparting it to others?
Wonderful article, Vijesh! Words can build or destroy. You have the knack of taking your readers for a long and pleasant ride through your articles. Oh, my! The video you included in the article rightly complements your content. Truly, a great lesson on using words effectively! You made my day. Thanks a lot.
Thanks for your comment Achari.
Glad you liked this article…
Attitude is a large part of success (in my opinion). If you want to have successful blog you need to be positive to keep people coming back. I think this goes across spectrums and all parts of life including work, family and social. Great Post!
Thanks for you encouraging comment Thomas,
People would definitely come back if we have positiveness imparted in our articles.
OH WOW…Vijesh, I feel so honored. Thanks for mentioning my name.
Have you heard the book “Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus”? I heard it’s a good book but never really read it. I understand that language of men and women are different from each other. When I read the book “Highly Effective Marriage” by Nancy Van Pelt, I’ve learned the “His Needs” and “Her Needs” are so different from each other. I thought I knew the language of my husband…but not. What I said to him, oftentimes he doesn’t hear it. And what he said to me was not what I’ve heard. So when we finally read this book (on our own) then compared our notes…our marriage got better.
It’s just WORDS. When people say, “Sticks and stones but WORDS will never hurt me,” oftentimes this is NOT true. Because words does HURT. And like you said, someone can commit suicide just by hearing the wrong words that’s being said.
A story I heard…there was once a woman who were very sick and depressed. She was an old woman and oftentimes her family ignored her. One day, I guess the daughter put her in the main table as a the HEAD and said, “We want you to know that we are SORRY for ignoring you. We really appreciate you around.” And once she heard the word “SORRY” it went on a different course. A simple word HEALED her broken heart.
Thank you so much Vijesh for writing such a GREAT article. You’re AWESOME!!!
Thanks for the story of the old women a simple word does really heal a broken heart. I heard about the first book Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, you mentioned but I too never read it regarding the second book Highly Effective Marriage, this is the first time I heard about it.
Thanks for the quote Angela “Sticks and stones but WORDS will never hurt me” but truth is that wounds and pain created by sticks and stones will be healed soon but pain caused by Words sometimes take years to heal…
Thanks for your encouraging comment Angela…
Sorry, my avatar didn’t show. Changed my email addy.
Its Ok Angela, You are a great believer of Avatar right, I remember your comment rules made in your blog. Avatar really helps us in determining spammer and true commenter.
You hit the nail on the head by saying that words have a profound impact on the lives of people..
What makes you different is the fact that you prove to the world through your actions along with the words..That’s a perfect combination..
You will be interested to read an article that I have written on 10 positive words used by Obama to influence people..
Keep writing more positive stuff and we want more articles from your side once you are relieved from your exam duty and other stuff.
Keep smiling and keep changing the world, Vijesh :).
Thanks for your inspiring comment Rafi.
I was just checking my previous posts to reply to my comments as I was busy during those days when I wrote this post. I am glad you like this post Rafi Bhai…
More to come stay tuned…
Well put Vijesh.
I really liked the way you used the examples on The power of Words.
Keep it up 🙂
Good luck with your new blog.
Thanks for your encouraging comment Amal.
Words do have power to create things if we use them properly and creatively…
Ah, that’s great that Angela helped inspire this post too. She’s awesome isn’t she!
You’re right, words can bring you up or down. I know for a fact though that it’s up to the individual and how they live their lives as to whether or not they’ll let words hurt them. If they have enough faith in themselves they definitely won’t but we all know that not everyone is where they should be in life.
I always try to encourage people myself. For the most part I succeed I believe.
I’ve also seen that video and found it to be inspiring as well.
Thanks for sharing this message with us today. Great post indeed.
Sorry for late reply as I couldn’t reply to these comments as I was busy at the time I wrote this post, so I took some time today in replying to these comments.
You are truly an inspiration for many bloggers and you do motivate people positively. I am glad that you liked my article though it is an old post I remember that I loved writing every bit of this article.
Am new to your blog and I see that you`re awesome story teller. I like such stories which inspire me.
Am not sure if the story you mentioned above is real or not.
But I completely agree with you that words have power.
And best example is Hitler (though for bad cause) it inspired.
What do you say?
Thanks for your encouraging comment,
words do have power though the cause may be for Good or for bad. Its better if we always choose to listen to positive words only.
What a wonderful post. You are a true storyteller. I read it twice. The song you mentioned reminded me of my daughter. That was her favorite song when she was a little girl.
You are right words can kill people. It saddens me see so much bullying going on in schools and social media. It takes so many young lives.
I also try to be positive when writing my posts. I try to talk to my readers as a friend.
Thank you for sharing this great post.
Thanks for you encouraging comment Dita,
Great to know that you read the story twice, its nice to know that you always try to be positive when writing your posts.
I have also observed that you have placed adsense in your blog. Hope you are doing good…
Once again thanks for your comment…
Great article Vijesh,You strongly illustrated the Power of Words.I remembered 3 idiots movie when I read the first story.
Above all your quote relating Plugin and positive attitude is really awesome “There are something’s which plugins can’t but only a human can”
Nice read,Keep going Vijesh
Glad that you liked the quote and thanks for reminding me of 3 Idiots movie the story sounds same but I heard this story somewhere else may be the movie director too copied the concept…
Its an incredible article, the story you choose and the way you makeup the article is simply amazing.. I do agree with your point of showing up the positive impact to the readers of your blog, especially should be encapsulated when you are giving advices for blogging newbies as hope is their only mantra when they are starting and shaping up..
Thanks for your comment King,
Happy to know that you liked the story used in the article.
One more awesome share from you 🙂 Yes, words are more powerful than actions. It can turn out good or bad and it depends on you. One must always have a positive attitude no matter how worse it goes. Keep up the good work Vijesh
Nicely said Karthik that words are more powerful than actions. it is words actually which implements proper actions…
Vijesh, what more to say… You inspired with me within a matter few minutes I spent reading this article.
Even I’ve experienced and lot of these, my elder brother always discourages me with his tough words. And eventually I started developing a low self esteem.
As I grew I hearing good and polite tone of words from others, I started ignoring my brother because the positive words gave me power to believe in myself.
Glad to know you have been inspired by my article Sreejesh,
You really have a potential to face all sorts of negatives people speak about you just face those hurdles and always think positive and success will be yours for sure.
As I continued reading, I continually kept on asking myself, ‘Are my posts imparting positive thoughts to my readership or vice versa?’
Glad to know that you were participating in my post, its good to cross check when something really pricks our heart…
So I believe you will impart positiveness to your readers…
this is very much related to the principle called Law of Attraction.. if you release positivity then you will gain positivity
Thanks for your comment, its true that if we release positive thoughts we get back same from those whom we have imparted.
Yeah i totally agree with your points regarding “the word power” and the mentioned stories regarding it are interesting and inspirational too.
However i believe positive attitude is something which can change most of our problems.
Its true thatpositive attitude does change our situations and sometimes a loosing moment can also turn as a winning moment.
Thanks for your comment…
