The Power of Words

The Power of Words - 

I have not been writing as much as I would like too. I have been traveling about 50% of the time. I had my US and Canada Dealer People Conference, with over 200 participants. Couple that with my consulting work being in high demand. Now we can start to see that I have been, to say it lightly, highly burdened with work.

I had a couple people ask about why I have not been blogging. My response, "Oh, I have been so busy with work." Their response, "Well, I kind of miss it." This hurt, the feeling of knowing people look forward to your words, that you have not been providing. That drove my realization around the power of words.

I love this blog! I have pour my heart and soul, into Duvet To Desk. The thoughts of the world, are translated into the words of this Duvet To Desk. The blog is my way of articulating this world. It is my way of using words to create order is what feels like chaos.

When I dove deeper into my blog, purpose, and my social outlet. I realized that my words carry weight. Not just because they are "my words." But because they are just that, words. And over the past 5 years of writing, I have found that my words in this blog, became my actions and my being. Looking at words, there are some basic assumptions that need to be accepted.

When WORDS are positive they can:
  • Lighten the human soul 
  • Discover purpose
  • Create inspiration
  • Drive the ability to be more than what you are right now
When WORDS are negative they can:
  • Carry long term weight
  • Break the soul
  • Neglect purpose
  • Destroy the ability to be better

"When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project your thoughts break their bonds.
Dormant forces, faculties, and talents come alive.
You discover yourself to be a greater person, by far, than you ever dreamt yourself to be."
-Patanjali, Yoga Sutras

Eventually what you say, has to become what you do, then it has to become who you are. This blog has become that for me. The place for me to sort my thoughts into words, that drove my behaviors, that made me who I am and will be.
Live life with intent!
