Power of Words - Part 3

The previous installments of this series looked at various aspects of the power of the words we use on a daily basis. Part 1 looked at our ability to choose our words, while Part 2 addressed how those choices are driven by what we think about.

I "think" we could each have a positive impact on our respective corners of the world if more of us used this simple reminder, to THINK before we speak. What do you "think" about that?
