Your Thoughts & Words Matter: 3 Steps to Help Choose Them More Wisely!

Did you know on average you speak 16,000 words per day!? Add to that all the thoughts that race through your mind – all day long!! And did you ever consider the emotions that are attached to every word you speak and every thought you have? It's no wonder that emotional intelligence is a key factor in:

  • relationships
  • stress management
  • goal achievement
  • overall life satisfaction

The next time you catch yourself reacting on auto-pilot unable to navigate your emotions, try this simple formula:

  1. Name all the feelings you are experiencing in the moment.
  2. Identify the options you have in front of you.
  3. Blend your thoughts and feelings to intentionally choose how you want to respond.

Your words and thoughts matter to you and to others. Choose yours wisely.
