TRASH TALK…John Page Burton

For many of us when we hear the words “trash talk” we associate it with sports. For example, a football game between the Bears and the Packers has the potential for a tremendous amount of “trash talk.” Many of us talk (non sports related) trash on a daily basis and we seldom realize what a negative impact “trash talk” can have on the overall quality of our lives. REMEMBER that what we speak about we may bring about!

The Potential Consequences Of Trash Talk….

If you talk about how much you “hate” your job, you may lose it.

If you talk about how much you dislike your body, you may become sick.

If you talk about how “poor” you are, you may never have enough money.

If you keep saying that you don’t trust people, you may attract people who will betray you.

If you say that you will never find a good job, you probably won’t.

If you keep talking about how bad your marriage is, it just may end.

If you talk about how difficult your children have become, they will more than likely live up to your expectations.

Our goal should be to watch our words very carefully as they send the universe a very powerful message. We must strive to speak words that reflect love, abundance, faith and hope. When you are willing to settle for less than God’s BEST, you are bound to get even less than you settled for.

Some Things To Consider…

Watch your THOUGHTS as they will become your WORDS.

Watch your WORDS as they will become your ACTIONS.

Watch your ACTIONS as they will become your HABITS.

Watch your HABITS as they will become your CHARACTER.

Watch your CHARACTER as it will become your DESTINY.

As with everything in life, the CHOICE is ours.
