Your FEET Will Follow...
That is some kind of UGLY picture there, isn't it? :)
Sorry. I apologize for that. Once you catch your breath, just use your hand to cover the picture and continue reading.
I was watching a video clip of Dani Johnson (DaniJohnson.com) the other day and she mentioned a phrase that she had heard some time in the past. "Your feet will follow your mouth" was the phrase and it has stuck with her for years.
And, it's TRUE!
You speak the direction of your life and your daily actions. You may or may not quite understand that, friend, but just know that your words ARE that powerful.
WHAT you speak and HOW you speak determines your direction. Are you kind? Considerate? Encouraging? Affirming?
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Put your money where your mouth is."?
What - and how - you speak may very well bring extra MONEY into your life and, just as easily, it may actually take money AWAY from your life!
I'm not talking about being a "suck-up" or "brown-noser".
I'm talking about being genuine (you can't fake that stuff for long!) and actually caring about people. The REAL you cannot help but come out for others to witness...good OR bad.
Your words - and use of them - may lead you to promotions and/or new job opportunities. They may also keep you from these things and cost you money that you didn't even know about.
Isn't there enough strife in the world? Isn't there enough strife just around YOU and YOUR world? The same is true about stress, unkind words, and all other kinds of negativity.
Don't make this a seasonal thing, make it a way of life...YOUR life.
Because, after all, your feet will follow your mouth!
Until next time, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
