Choose a Powerful Potent Way with Words

minutes remaining

Words can be powerful, but what does the Master Key Experience (MKE) have to do with a powerful way with words?

Plenty, as words are how we communicate our thoughts.

A Way with Words: What Message Are You Sending?

I am in a WhatsApp group for connections I have through my home-based business. The messages are often written very poorly. I can give some of them a bit of leeway, since English is a second language. Maybe they are relying on Google Translate to get their message across. More likely though, they are just typing too fast on their phone, or talking to it. And then not looking at what they wrote before posting. Sometimes I don’t even know what they are trying to say.

Here is a tip. When you are writing ANYTHING – an email, text, message, blog post, or book – review before sending. One suggestion is to read it out loud. I tried that and was able to notice more typos that way, and to pick up on awkward sentence structure. And correct it before I pressed ‘send.’

What About the Messages We Send to Ourselves?

And what’s more important than sending clear messages to others? I would say having a powerful way with words to ourselves is much more important. Charles Haanel, in the Master Key System, speaks of words as the highest form of architecture. He teaches us that thoughts are causes and the conditions in our lives are the effects. Truly, if words are the building blocks of our thoughts, we must choose them and use them very carefully.

Recently, I noticed a trend with both my mother and my mother-in-law. Whenever I ask my mother how she is doing, she says something like, “Oh, I’m struggling along.” Do you think her life is a struggle? Yes, that is the way she sees it.

And my mother-in-law is constantly anxious about things. She uses the words ‘angst’ and ‘anxious’ so often that even my husband has noticed. He often calls her out on it. When she said, “I’m anxious to see Jakob” (her great-grandson), my husband told her not to use that word but to say she is ‘excited’ or ‘happy.’ I was very impressed with my husband.

I love these two ladies dearly but do feel they could send more positive messages to themselves.

Powerful Way with Words in the MKE

During the MKE, we have several opportunities to improve our use of words. Here are four examples that you can practice your powerful, potent way with words in the MKE:

  1. We write and rewrite our Definite Major Purpose (DMP) until it is perfect. This is the goal statement that we are sending to our subconscious, and it had better be good, since our subconscious mind is going to work for us whether we know it or not.
  2. During the reading of The Greatest Salesman in the World (required reading), we remove (cross out) the word ‘will’ from the text after the first few reads. At first, I was uncomfortable doing this – I felt like I was defacing a book. However, I soon came to understand that the power of words works best in the present tense. When you focus on what ‘will’ happen in the future, your subconscious mind won’t work on getting you what you want, but only more of wanting that object.
  3. Then, later in the MKE course, refining our way with words, we do an exercise called the Franklin Makeover. This is based on something created by Benjamin Franklin, with an MKE twist. We choose a word to focus on each week, a word that signifies something we want to improve in our lives. For instance, one week we focus on the word ‘kindness’ and as we focus on that word we see kindness in others, and kindness in ourselves. We may even change our behavior to perform more acts of kindness. Through the Law of Growth, these attributes expand in our lives, and by the end of each week the attribute has become a part of our self-concept.
  4. Another “word” aspect of the MKE is the study of personality styles. We use the ‘Color Code system, and through it I learned a lot about communication. Each personality style is assigned a colour, and there are some important words relating to that ‘personality colour’ such as their core motive. When relating with other personality colours, it is important to use words that fit their colour. That way, your message is communicated with kindness, and they are more likely to hear and understand your message.

Are You Words Powerful?

If you would like to learn more about the power of words, and thoughts, and how you can become a self-directed thinker –  check out the MKE for yourself. We are starting a new class soon. It only costs $1.00 to check it out. There is no risk, and so much to gain!

And one final message of the powerful way with words that I picked up from the MKE. Say this powerful affirmation to yourself every day:

“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.”

See for yourself how it changes your life!
