#060: How To Change Your Life by Changing Your Words [Podcast]


How to Change Your Life by Changing Your Words

What you say is what you GET

I really believe this to be true.  Our thoughts lead to beliefs; out of our beliefs we talk, both internally to ourselves, and outwardly to others; and what we say has tremendous creative power. Have you ever intentionally turned up the volume and raised your awareness of what comes out of your mouth? You might be shocked if you walked around with a recorder all day.

What are you creating with your own words? Life, poverty, success, failure, good relationships, bad ones?

On today’s program, I want to share with you ‘How To Change Your Life by Changing Your Words


Proverbs 18:21

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Genesis 1

Then God SAID … let there BE …

James 3:5-6, 9-10

5 So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it
boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by
such a small fire!

6 And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the
tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the
entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set
on fire by hell.

9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse
men, who have been made in the likeness of God;

10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My
brethren, these things ought not to be this way.


It has to do with BELIEFS

Lou Tice Quote The Pacific Institute

In 2007, I traveled to Seattle, WA to attend a powerful training which was being offered by ‘The Pacific Institute.’ Lou Tice, an amazing entrepreneur, businessman, and trainer had discovered years ago that most of the challenges we face have to do with our BELIEFS, and maybe more importantly, the WORDS we speak.

Whether the conversation is going on inside our mind, or out loud where everyone can hear it, OUR WORD carry tremendous power, and in fact CREATE exactly what we say. We can speak into existence what our heart believes to be true, good or bad: Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

It starts with BELIEF

We have to challenged limiting and paralyzing beliefs, and align ourselves with the TRUTH as God sees it.

Bridle the Tongue

We have to CATCH ourselves saying limiting and destructive things.

The Way Forward

1. Listen
2. Call out – (identify) the WORDS that are life-taking
3. Repent
4. Receive Truth – What does God know to be true?
5. Replace – Create statements of confession/affirmation that, over time, will take command of your creative power


  1. Next week, ‘Creating Your World through the Power of  Affirmations
  2. We will be launching our new website in the next few weeks. Be watching for a BIG announcement.
  3. I will be releasing a new E-Book in conjunction with the launch of the new site. It is called, “The Four Cornerstones for Strategic Living’ – Building Your Life By Design.”
