Empowering Language

January 14th, 2009 | No Comments |

Have you ever been at a function or an event having a great time, feeling good about everything going on until you have a conversation with someone that uses language that makes you feel less empowered, less achieved and less appreciated? Or have you been to a conference or a presentation where the host is inspiring and professional all the way up until he drops a word or two that nearly derails him and his credibility?

There are probably many different opinions of appropriate language and what should be accepted at the professional and personal level. Just because a certain term or word seems to be popular, laughed at or even very commonly used does not mean that it is empowering. Language, for everyone who is involved in Personal Development, is a very important part of growth, success and development of ones mindset. Actions define you, speaking is an action.

Let me give you some examples of disempowering words, and please, just fill in the blanks!

  1. A four letter word starting with “F” and ending in “K”. Why on earth would this word empower anyone? When someone says this word around you, do you feel like you could conquer the world? It inspires anger, hate, and rage! Nothing more. It is an insecure word. Empower yourself by deleting it from your language.
  2. Name calling especially when it is a vulgar word, or curse word. Most adults are just bigger kids, I know this. Name calling should have been taken care of in grade school!

Anyway, you get the point. Using empowering language is not only powerful for you but it also empowers those around you as they build a higher respect for you! So when speaking to someone you know or don’t know, using building words and empower them by having enough respect for that person to do so. You teach others how to treat you and allow them to do so. Teach them the correct way to speak the language of success, especially while around you!
