Your words

Are words powerful? Are kind words a waste of time ?

You never know where your words will take you. You never know where they will show up.  Like scattered seeds, they spring up in unexpected places. This short movie will show you this idea in an awesome way.

 “Kind words are never wasted. Like scattered seeds, they spring up in unexpected places.” – E.M. Bounds.

Now you see, words do have the power to change.

With only a few words you can change lives and relationships.

Choose your words wisely and seek to build-up rather than to tear down….especially when you are talking to a kid.

…because what children see, children do….what children hear, children say…

There is a great poem called “Children Learn What They Live” by Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.,  about the influence we can have on kids:

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

What’s left to do?

Change your words. Change your world.
