Words said and Words written have an effect on people. Here is a Story i read and wanted to share with you all.
A speaker was speaking about the power of positive thinking
and the power of words.
One of the audience raised his hand and said.
” It’s not because I say good fortune, good fortune, good
fortune that will make me feel better. Nor will saying bad luck,
bad luck, bad luck, make me feel worse. They’re only words
and, by themselves, have no power.”
The speaker replied. “Shut up, you fool, you don¹t understand
a thing about this.”
The member of the audience was stunned, his face became red
and he was about to reply. “You, son of a…”
The speaker raised his hand.
“Please excuse me. I didn’t mean to upset you. Please accept
my most sincere apologies.”
The member of the audience calmed down. Some people in the
hall murmured Others shuffled their feet.
The speaker resumed. “There’s the reply to the question you
asked me. A few words made you very angry. The other words
calmed you down.
Now do you understand the power of words?”
