Words are powerful tools.
We use words to build confidence, motivate, and inspire others.
I’ve written in this post how, as a business leader, you can benefit from a well-written company newsletter.
Words and well-told stories can do wonders with rambunctious children too.
How do I know that?
Glad you asked : )
Words and Happy Memories
Growing up, as the oldest of five siblings, words were my “secret” weapon.
When the Chief and Indians game was getting out of hand all I had to do was say, “Who wants to come over here? I’ll read you a story.”
All would gather around me with big, expectant eyes.
Fast forward to 2010. I was visiting with family in Europe.
We were all gathered in the home we grew up in.
The weather was beautiful and everyone was in the yard – talking.
Someone brought me a magazine with an interesting article.
I wanted to share so I’ve read it out loud.
When I finished everyone was quiet for few moments.
I was thinking the article made a really strong impression on them.
Then my youngest sister spoke:
“That’s what you used to do when we were children.
And that’s one of my happiest memories”.
What we do and the words we say can have great impact on the people around us.
Often without us even knowing it.
