Make every word count

September 12, 2017 Leave a Comment

Words brandish power. The tone you use when you say them, the loud or soft volume, and your gestures all combine to be the total live communication package. In addition, in written communication words are even more important.

Especially when used in social media.
Consider the word aspire, which is not used very frequently any more. There are many catch phrases with similar meanings: plug away, make a run at it, hammer away, go for broke… However aspire just sounds classy, and carries some credibility.
I desire to influence others, and see that dream actualized almost daily. I have a thirst for helping others realize their potential, and connect fledgling writers with successful mentors every day. I am eager to make a difference in every fiber of my being.
But…when did I aspire to change the world? When I knew in my gut that I could, and should, and would.
When I believed in myself, and my ability to influence others to join me. When I knew my skill-set was strong enough to make it happen.
Today’s action: Pick one of your pieces of writing. Is there vocabulary you could repurpose to wield more power? Take pains to choose your words carefully when you write. You do not have the added non-verbal communication techniques to support and emphasize your message.

It only takes one to make a change

I am just one person. How can little ol’ me make a difference? Jadav Payeng doesn’t feel like that. We all have many little voices inside us that try to convince us that we are not worthy. Our task, as influencers, is to turn those personal doubts into positive motivators.

As a young teen, Jadav “Molai” Payeng decided to help the terrain surrounding his home and started planting trees. Over thirty years ago! He planted the seeds next to a deserted sandbar in the Assam region of India, which was close to his birthplace. Jadav wanted to create an area for wildlife to flourish and to quietly protest people who were cutting trees down.

Later,  Jadav made the decision to dedicate his life to creating his own forest and planting trees. So, almost every day for 37 years, he planted seeds and successfully built a whole new ecosystem. His forest is now over 1,360 acres (Central Park is 778 acres).

If you want to be amazed and inspired, take a minute to enjoy Jadav’s story.  Notice also that his work has gained recognition and endorsement by the Indian government. The story was discovered and spread across media because of an article written by one freelance journalist, who made this video.  Each one an inspiring person who made a difference.  Click here to enjoy the video.

Today’s Action – You are now a freelance journalist. Who will you inspire today?
