Empowering Quotes and the Meaning Behind Them

The word empower

It has frequently been said that the spoken word contains life-giving power, and this may very well be true, if you think about the words that are spoken to you each day, and how they make you feel. When someone complains about a job you did or the way you are dressed, it can throw off your whole day, and surely have a negative impact on how you conduct yourself for the remainder of the day. In responding to others, you might even perpetuate a “domino effect,” whereby an entire chain of negativity ensues–and all because of one single put down. Conversely, a compliment or word of encouragement can turn a situation (and a mood) around in a flash. So, if that’s power, then words have it. Read the following quotes, and afterwards, see if you don’t feel a little better, as a result. Here’s to your empowerment!
