My next guest says the good choice of words and how you use them can have a big impact.
But just on your life and happiness -- on others as well -- considered one of the most influential evangelicals -- America.
And now has a new book called change your words change your life please welcome Joyce Meyer.
All over the country with so many people.
That I want your take on the mudslinging that we see going on in the political campaigns or is it -- counterproductive.
I think it's I think it's terrible I think it's ridiculous.
I think that it just causes more disrespect.
Then they can even imagine I hear what the people say on the normal side of life and really people just think it's ridiculous it's like it.
It's just ridiculous beyond ridiculous.
You you talk about in your book and by the -- congratulations authority of New York time best seller -- thank -- two weeks on the market which I think that's pretty remarkable.
But you talk about how.
That words really do have an impact not only on who how we communicate that how people perceive -- human beings explain how I'm.
-- and it is to choose our words right.
Well the Bible says that the power of life and death is in the -- in the words that we speak.
And if we actually even remotely believe that how powerful is that that everything that I speak.
Either minister's life for -- to you to everyone here and to me also.
The words that we speak come out here they go in here -- -- right back down in here -- actually cheer myself up with my own words are I can depress myself with my words.
And I like to think of words as a container.
Just like if I had a glass -- put anything in -- that I wanted I could fill it full of mud.
Bracket -- for something nice and tasty.
My words -- the same like I can put in them what I wanted.
F five fill them with.
God things the kind of things that that god would say things are gonna build an -- and cheer people -- that -- like to everyone.
But I can also fill them full of downgrading things murmuring complaining.
Fear and so much of what we hear on the media -- and thank you for your program.
Thank for all the Fox News program.
People don't know what to believe.
They don't want to read the paper they don't want to listen to the news because they are so beat down already.
Lot of people are really hopeless and I'm really glad that I personally have a job of spreading hope.
Everywhere that I go and so I really.
Wanna hear people stop complaining murmuring grumbling finding fault with everything I was thinking of the -- -- -- -- minute.
What do you think our society would be like them.
If everywhere you turn there was hopeful positive things being said.
It put Washington out of business -- How do you deal in a workplace where you don't get -- to control what other people are sank.
And particularly for someone who has a believer who goes into that workplace and all around them.
There's negative words there's full Garrity how does one deal with that and -- you can't choose somebody else's words she just can only choose your own what do you.
Now you can only choose your almost what a great opportunity to stand up and be a witness.
Not in an aggressive Bob noxious -- but just going to be -- -- -- for example you're sitting around the lunch table.
And everybody's complaining about the boss complain about this complain about that and then what.
Then what if somebody speaks up and tell what you know I know some things could change and you know we'd like to see things change but am grateful I've got a job because you know there's a lot of people don't even have one.
As so what I try to do it is just come back with something positive.
Positive -- and you know -- noxious state for someone who really doesn't want to hear it but just.
Bringing in the -- bring in in the positive and I think this is a great time for Christians to religious stand open beta they say they are.
Live the life that they say that they're living act like they really believed what they say that they believe.
