We are still focusing on the weekly topic "What do you bring to the table". Today we focused on "words" to build up or tear down?

From the very beginning when the first words were uttered, the ability to communicate has played an important role in our world.

Whether within our own thoughts, spoken or written, words have the power to transform the world we live in.

Love, laughter, heroism, friendship, and virtually every emotion we feel as human beings can be inspired by words. Unfortunately, fear, anger, and hatred, can also be invoked by words.

Language is at its best when used to inspire others to find the best in themselves.

Answer this question........"The words I speak bring ____________to the table."

 

“Speak when you are angry– and you will make the best speech you’ll ever regret.”
Laurence J. Peter (1919 – 1988)
Educator, author of The Peter Principle
