We spend too much time projecting negativity into the world. We need to start spending more time speaking greatness into the world.
It says in the Bible;
“Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”
Proverbs 16:24 New International Version
This means we can do much more with kind words then we can deal with evil ones. It has been proven that there is power in words. Many people tend to speak success in their own life and not the lives of their people.
Imagine this. It’s a hot day. You and your friends are all standing in an empty pool with buckets of water. You all have two options, you can use the water you have in your individual buckets to keep yourself cool, or you can all empty your buckets into the pool and benefit from the water together.
Imagine that the water is blessings in your life, and you are only limited to the blessings in your bucket.
Wouldn't you want to get some more blessings from the other buckets?
What if your bucket is smaller than everyone else's? Wouldn't you want them to splash some of their blessings on you?
Take out the water analogy and apply this story to the workplace. If you go to work and simply tell your coworker, "You are doing great this month, you are going to get promoted for sure." What do you think that does to your coworker’s psyche?
It makes them feel good. It makes them work harder. It makes them produce more, and as a result, that small moment of just speaking greatness into their career manifests itself into a promotion.
Now that coworker feels good, they will spread that greatness to another coworker, then another. The greatness will spread throughout your department then eventually throughout your entire company.
This process is called creating an "environment of blessings," and that environment can only be created by speaking greatness upon yourself and speaking greatness into other people's lives.
What goes around comes around. Let your boomerang be filled with greatness.
