Many books tell us that the power of our words make all the difference in our lives. Our statements determine whether we are energized and impassioned or disenchanted and disconnected. It is crucial for all of us to go through the process of totally aligning with the words we speak and the messages we give and to learn to move beyond the old cliches that often become our way of life.
We are using old language with a new emerging self, and it is not impassioned and energizing. We are like the beggar carrying old rags when an upgrade in our words, thoughts, and actions could bring us riches.
