Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Hay House for review purposes. The following are my personal and honest opinions.
“Power Words” by Sharon Anne Klingler talks about how the way we talk to ourselves and other people shapes our lives. Day in and day out, we usually don’t even think about or realize just the amount of power our words hold – but their influence on our overall well-being is huge. We take actions based on the beliefs we have, and the beliefs we have are molded and reinforced by what we say.
I actually found using power words to be helpful! When I’m powering through a tough part of a workout, I might think, “Peace, peace, peace”. Just repeating it to myself and really imagining that feeling of peace completely through my whole body and the situation. And it helps me stay with the workout rather than give up. I helped my body and mind to relax.
Klingler encourages the use of power words for all kinds of situations. Whatever we need in a particular moment, we can help ourselves by using a word or phrase that fits the situation. Everyone will respond and connect to different words in their own way, so it’s all about finding what works for you.
I liked this book because I found it to be really helpful in my real life – and it’s so easy to use. I can use what I learned at any time and the results have been immediate and pretty powerful for me.
