Words = emotions
The words we attach to an experience ultimately become our experience. Everything we say affects how we feel. If we say we’re depressed there is an immediate physical reaction from our body.
During events, Tony Robbins openly shares that he used to be a bit of a hot head. This only began to change when he started using different words to express what he was feeling in the moment. Instead of saying “I’m pissed off,” he’d say “I’m annoyed” because it made him laugh. As he laughed he did a complete 180 on his feelings.
