Never Underestimate The Power of Words !!!

words2Once a Professor was giving a lecture to the university students about power of positive attitude and thinking and the power of words.

One of the students raised his hand and said, “I don’t think words can change anything. They are mere words. Like if I keep saying “Good fortune, Good fortune” that isn’t going to make me feel good. Nor does saying “bad fortune, bad fortune” going to make me feel sad and depressed. They are just words and have no power whatsoever.

The Professor replied, “You Idiot, just shut up. You are such an ignorant fool that you don’t understand a thing of what is being said”

The student was shocked, his face became red with anger and he started, “How dare you call me fool You are such a……” The Professor interrupted and said, “Please calm down, I didn’t mean to hurt you please forgive me for using such words” Then the Student calmed down.

The Professor resumed, “In fact that was the answer to your question. The words I just said had a tremendous effect on you although I had no such intention to upset you. The words still played their role. While the latter words I said calmed you down. This clearly shows the POWER OF WORDS”

The Student agreed to the Professor.

“Words can Inspire, Words can Destroy. Choose Yours Well”

“Your Words Have Great Power Use Them To Support and Inspire”

    It is rightly said that either speak gently or keep quiet, because one’s harsh words could even cause an irreparable damage.

    What happened between the teacher

    What happened between the teacher & the student is a good proof of the power of words.Words’ effect is sometimes sharper than swords.

    Words are ruling power and action caused by word

    Tongue is more powerful than a sharp sword, as the sword may injure your body & you can get healed, but the negative words, pierces through your heart, like a double edged sword & can be healed by the same way in form of positive words. Ultimately the bottom line is words.
