Words & Thoughts are Powerful and Joel Osteen Quote

Monday, May 20, 2013

You could see your life go to a whole new level if you would just zip up the negative words and start speaking faith and victory into your future. By Joel Osteen (Facebook Post)

When you hear negative words too often you start to believe them. The original source of the negative words may have stopped, but now you’re the one playing those negative words in your head. You play them over and over, giving them even more power. We are so hard on ourselves trying to achieve the unachievable. Negative words and thoughts defeat us, and just by thinking, and believing them they become our reality.

Words and thoughts are so powerful! I felt it vital to my success and happiness in life, that I start replacing those negative thoughts, with positive ones. I found that it would take me twice as long to replace the negative words and thoughts, with positive ones. Then I would be amazed how fast the negative thoughts would return if I didn’t keep feeding the positive ones. Why is that?

I feel that it is as important for successful weight loss to add reading or listening to positive books, CDs, or DVDs as food and activities management. I found that the faster I replaced the negative with the positive the faster I started reaching my goals. The more success I had through positive thinking, thoughts, and words, the better I felt, feeling empowered, and believing I would achieve any goal I set my mind to.

I love to read so I allow myself to read as much as I want for fun, but I set a goal to read from a leadership, motivational, or relationship book for at least 15 – 30 minuets a day! I’m finding that it is fun to read these type books as well. In my journaling I keep track of reading, and what I’m reading. I can look back and see my progress, what I was thinking and what was happing in my life.

Speak faith in yourself and victory in your life daily and watch what happens. For those who have God in your life have faith in him, yourself, and speak victory in your life. You’ll be surprised how it changes everything. Why not give it a try today. A great place to start reading positive is Joel Osteen and John C. Maxwell. I name them because they are whom I’m listening & reading and I know how positive they are.

No matter what happens today think positive and speak positive words. Come back and let me know how it went and if it helped you. Thank you for taking time to read this blog post. I hope it helps you on your journey to your goals and dreams.

    Think about this...God created the world with just his spoken word, let there be light..words are powerful. I've had some rough times but God has been with me all the way through (nothing like what you've gone through tho') Satan picks and chooses his weapons but greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world. All things work together for those who love God and are called according to his purpose. Never agree with Satan no matter how you feel or how things look, you've got God almighty on your side. I'm sorry I haven't been there for you but one thing I've learned is to pick a scripture and memorize it and it will be there for you when Satan attacks you. Sometimes I just say all the scriptures I've memorized so I have enough weapons. God bless you and keep you. Hugs, Bug

    I was able to do a fast and get to bed earlier than I have in a long time. Both things can be hard for me, but not if I think positively! Thank you for this blog.
