Words have POWER! Recently I was at a conference with a well known speaker and he posed a question during his Keynote Speech. “Can They Hear Your Voice?” Now, honestly this could be talking about a number of things. Can they hear my voice about what? Who is “they” anyway? So, I got to thinking about this.
I have 2 adult children now, so I asked them. I asked my older son what sayings he remembered me saying when he was growing up. I was a little scared to ask! He promptly came up with a couple! “Don’t ever throw the first punch” and “Don’t ever start it, but if it starts, then you better finish it!” While I would like to think I had other words of wisdom for him growing up, it does appear that he heard my voice and still remembers it! So, I guess I’ll call that Success!
