There is an old expression: “It is not what you say, but how you say it..”
With this in mind, I have noticed that many people speak in an absolutely vile tone of disdain. Almost as if everything in their life is terrible or boring, even if the words they use, say it isn’t.
With many of these people, I notice that their voice is sweet; no screaming or yelling anywhere. And the words that they choose are also kind, without any profanity. However, their tonality is usually full of criticism, disdain, cynicism and pretentious qualities.
The best example of this was in school this week. One of the teachers spoke to my classmate as if she were 3 years old and had done something terrible. Actually, she is an adult and she had done nothing wrong. But it was obvious that the instructor had a chip on his shoulder and needed to vent on someone. Unfortunately, she was it. He left the scene feeling quite superior about his pompous self, and my classmate and others around her were quite disturbed by the whole matter. He never said one word that was insulting but spoke in a tone of “you know nothing and I know everything”.
According to Universal Law of Attraction, you attract what you put out there. This particular teacher is not a happy person and he always seems to be sharing details of his miserable personal life. As for my classmate, what happened to her, I’m not surprised, as I have seen her speak in a similar tone to others, although not quite as severe as the teacher had done to her.
So what is the lesson learned here? It is always best to speak in a positive tone. It may be tough to control your thoughts, but the written and spoken words that come from you can have a tremendous impact on your life and those around you. And remember, once they come out, you can not retrieve them.
The next time you know the answer to a question or want to help someone, do not absent-mindedly say “no problem”. This is not a positive response as the word “no” and “problem” have been brought into the equation. Both are negative words. Better to think in the affirmative. “ Yes. I can do this.” or “I would love to help you."
Or if your friend is wearing an ugly shirt, do not say "I guess you didn’t have time to do your laundry and that must have been the last shirt in your dresser." But do come up with something positive like “I love the frog pattern on your blouse. It reminds me of my fun time in the countryside as a kid.“
We cannot control the way other people speak but we do have total control over our own words. Differentiate yourself from the masses and be the leader that you are meant to be. Own your vocabulary and speak well so that others will wish to emulate you. Indigos are the change for the better. Speak it.
