Your Words – They Have Influence, Impact & Power

Words - Power-Impact_Influence-v3

Have you ever wondered how much you are impacting others with your words (or your thoughts)?

Would you like to positively heighten the influence you have on others?

If so, you might like to consider this…

The video below is based on the rice experiment which was made famous by Dr. Masaru Emoto, a researcher and alternative healer from Japan. It demonstrates the power of our thinking and our words. Dr Emoto placed portions of cooked rice into two containers. On one container he wrote “thank you” and on the other “you fool”. He then instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud every day when they passed them by. After 30 days, the rice in one of those containers looked very different. Another person hearing of Dr Emoto’s research decided to check it out for himself. The video below clearly shows his results. As they say, a picture says a 1000 words. I invite readers to have a look….and a think. Your comments below are also welcome.

If words can have this much impact on cooked rice, what’s their impact on other people?
