“Our words are our thoughts with wings. We open our mouths, our minds fly out.”
—Barbara Ann Kipfer, Author of Self-Meditation
We humans have a superpower not shared with any other creatures on Earth.
Given today’s quote, you would be correct in labeling language as our superpower.
With it, mankind has literally shaped and manifested all kinds of wondrous things, and some horrid things as well.
I’ve been watching a National Geographic Channel series called Origins: The Journey of Humankind, which points to a wide variety of moments that have shaped our society. Consider the impact of language on technology, medicine, government, monetary systems, and even war and terrorism on our world today.
Consider your inner voice and the words you choose to let fly into your personal and professional worlds. Be sure you are giving only your best when you decide to give others a piece of your mind.
If you check out the Origins series, let me know your thoughts!
