Handcuffs or Helium
Handcuffs or Helium?
Words hold a certain amount of magic to them. And the meaning we give these words is critical to our Mindset.
The “Semantics” of words according to Merriam Webster dictionary states: the language used to achieve a desired effect on an audience especially through the use of words with dual meanings.
We are the audience to the words we are choosing to use. Often certain words will have dual meanings because we associate these words with events and not the “dictionary definition” of them. So we should be aware of the words we habitually use.
For example, when something was difficult for me I would label that thing as hard and I would quit before it was completed. So I associated the word Hard with Quitting and I have now given it a dual meaning. For me to change the habit of using the word Hard I replaced it with challenging. I associate the word challenge with it is possible to complete hence giving this word a dual meaning now.
So word Association and the Semantics we choose to give these words can either give us Helium in our lives so that we can grow, get better and soar or they can Handcuff us to the cages we've been in for the days, weeks, months, and years.
It's our Choice. Choose consciously.
