Our words create reality

Earlier in the week, I listened to a fascinating conversation between Greg McKeown of Essentialism, and Sheri Salata, who used to be the executive producer of the Oprah Winfrey Show.

During the lovely and lively dialogue, a phrase from Greg stood out:

‘I realised that my words don’t just describe reality; they create reality.’

The more I have reflected on this, the more I realise it to be true.

What an incredible thought, and what responsibility.

The possibilities excite me, and I want to honour the privilege.

How do you value your words?
