I had an epiphany this week. There are some words that are so small yet so powerful. For example, the word “no”. It’s a two letter word, so simple, yet so profound. It gives direction that something is not wanted or agreed to or opposite of whatever “yes” or “okay” would be. It shuts things down.
Another small word that is quite dynamic is “go.” Again, it’s so simple yet so powerful in which it can be a command, a directive, and a verb (action word).This little word tells us to move out of the position we are in and keep moving until there is a need to stop. The small word “to” leads us in direction from where we were or where something is until we come to the place of new.
Another small yet big word is “do.” It’s another word that puts us into action to get something accomplished or at least activated in motion. We tend to like to tell others what to do, but struggle to do things ourselves.
It’s just amazing that it takes so little to be said but invokes a profound response for us to move into action or stop an action. However, we use so many words to explain away why we can’t do something, or we talk about how much we know or how many plans we have but haven’t done anything as of yet still. We waste words and our breath. It’s time to say less and do more. No excuses. Just go! Stop being lazy.
