Did you know Linguists say that in the English language approximately 1/3 are considered “positive” and the rest, “negative.” WOW! That is a true testament to how powerful words are to our thinking. No wonder most people are always in a sour mood. Words are very powerful! With only 1/3 positive, I can see how we can easily be influenced by negative thinking, after all that is according to the article I read the bulk of the English language. Since there are indeed fewer positive words, they are, even more powerful. My goal is to learn a new positive word everyday!! By learning positive words, my hope is to also train my mind to look for the positive in every situation. I encourage you to join me.
