Words are power, words are powerful. “Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. ” as Kipling once said.
It is also said that “words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts“.
Your words can rescue an individual from the slums of life and set him on the path of restoration and hope to a bright future. Hope and doom are both weaved and engrafted with words. Astute leaders have left footprints in the sands of time and inspired nations with effectual power of words to be great today.
Incredible archives of speeches and articles still stand as lasting legacies in the names of great leaders like Indian non-violent revolutionist, Mahatma Ghandi and American Civil Rights Anti-segregationist leader, Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Lily Tomlin once said ‘the road to success is always under construction’. A person may not look great today; wait give him or her time. The first African-American POTUS, Barack Obama in 1996 was only a member of the Illinois State Senate, on January 20,2009 he was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States of America. God used words to create the world. In Genesis Chapter one, the commonly used phrase is “and God said”. Be a speaker of hope in the lives of people around you.
In a nutshell “Create and recreate your world with words of positivity and rejuvenation”.
