You Are What You Say You Are

You’ve heard it many times: You are what you think.  But thoughts often become  words before they become actions. So it’s safe to say this:  You are also what you say. In fact, neuroscientists have now proven that just saying
powerful words can make you more powerful. 

For example, when you lift a weight, saying a word such as “strong” increases the force with which you lift that weight.

Amazing, isn’t it?  Proverbs 18:21 is literally true, scientifically proven:  Life and death are in the power of the
tongue.
