Now I am not a religious person but I know a good thing when I see it.
I recently discovered this video while looking through the OWN YouTube channel; I had heard about it, but had never seen it. In this video, Pastor Joel Osteen discusses the power of words and phrases, particularly the term “I Am.” It is a life-hack of sorts, stating that the words you use have impact on the life you live. This all harkens back to the saying “Beware of your thoughts, they become your words. Beware of your words, they become your actions. Beware of your actions, they become your habits. Beware of your habits, they become your character. Beware of your character, it becomes your destiny.” I remember this saying from childhood, my Mom had a huge poster in her office with these very words. It is only recently that I am beginning to understand their meaning.
This video has really inspired me to be more conscious of how I speak to and about myself. It is a bit long but worth every minute. Enjoy!
