Scientists have found that just hearing spoken words about elderly people led research subjects to walk more slowly; and individuals reading words of ‘loving kindness’ showed increases in self-compassion, improved mood, and reduced anxiety.

Words have power. They indeed have the power to transform the world we live in. Research has shown that on average people speak about 7,500 words per day – that’s a lot of transformation.

I have never seen anything as potent and as powerful as the one-minute video below when it comes to depicting how powerful language can be. I encourage you to check out this video. It won’t take but a minute and a half of your time, and I feel comfortable to add that it will probably be the best thing you experience today.

Choose your words carefully. They really can change the world . . . and make sure you get a good glimpse of what a beautiful day it is today.
