Simple words can change a life

A few months ago I met a speaker from the Bahamas, Dr. Myles Munroe, who said a few simple words to me that had a great impact on my life. After speaking at a seminar in Omaha, Nebraska, Dr. Munroe went to the back to sign books and meet with his audience. After signing a couple of books that I had bought Dr. Munroe hugged me and said to me, “May you die empty”. These simple words had a powerful effect on me. I’ve continued to pursue my goals with the desire to ‘die empty’.

My reason for sharing this today is to remind you that simple words, a few short simple words, can have a tremendous effect on someone’s life. People need encouragement and empowerment. Every day we are faced with situations that disempower and rob us of our full potential. You never know what that lady or gentleman is going through. That’s why it’s important to always share positive, powerful thoughts with those we come into contact with. A simple appreciation, a simple statement of affirmation, an encouraging comment, simple words of validation can change people’s lives. Choose today to share words that will empower those you come into contact with.
