Words can be weapons.
They can cut deep. Break hearts. Hurt feelings.
They can leave us covered head to toe with invisible scars, hidden from sight but the hardest to heal.
Words are thoughts. And from thoughts arise feelings. Despite their momentary nature, we can’t help but feel the wounds words leave behind.
Words can come in many forms — criticisms, attacks, put-downs, insults, abuse — and they can come from countless sources.
But the truth is, the most painful words we encounter often come from ourselves.
We’re not good enough. Smart enough. Good-looking enough. Rich enough. Courageous enough.
We’re incapable. Unlikeable. UnLOVEable.
The relationship many of us have with ourselves is a violent one. Instead of fists, we use words. We criticize ourselves. Compare ourselves. Lack any sense of compassion for ourselves.
We look for love from the outside while we’ve buried our own true loving nature under layer upon layer of self-condemnation on the inside.
That loving nature, it’s still there. It’s always there.
We find it when we use our words wisely.
Today on The Quote of The Day Show, my good friend Christine Hassler asks a question that we should all consider:
“If you talked to your friends like you often talk to yourself,
would you have any friends?”
If the answer is no, tap the PLAY button above to learn a powerful self-love tool you can put to use when the critic within make its next unwelcome and unloving appearance.
FREE “No Regrets” Masterclass with Christine Hassler
Can I tell you one of the best things I’ve witnessed all year?
So, I had Christine speak at a recent mastermind event. Instead of giving your standard topic-focused presentation, she did a couple hours of live coaching with our attendees.
It. Was. Nuts.
Her ability to so quickly get to the REAL heart of the matter was mind-blowing. This woman knows her stuff. Seriously, I’d never seen anything like it before.
Next week, Christine is teaching a FREE masterclass on how to live a life with no regrets by transforming your struggles into superpowers.
Here’s what your learn:
* An understanding of why you just. can’t. get. unstuck, no matter how many books you read, workshops you attend, or therapy sessions you put yourself through
* The surprisingly straightforward way to uncover why you’re making decisions that don’t make you happy
* The shift you absolutely have to make if you want to achieve true fulfillment, because doing what you’re good at might actually be stopping you from finding your superpowers
When you attend LIVE, you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and get live feedback from Christine. This is HUGE.
It’s going down next Wednesday, October 11th at 5pm PT/8pm ET. Tap the link below to register. (Registrants will receive the replay link as well.)
