Using ’empowering words’ for instant self confidence.

Some of the words that we use are weak and some words we use are strong. These words are easy to identify as the weak ones denote weak things, emotions etc and the strong words denote strong things, emotions. Just by using certain words we can get immediate power or in some cases they can also dis-empower us. Words give off different energy and this energy impacts our feeling in general in terms of their use. For example, if say to yourself that you are tired you will end up feeling tired. The words we use can and does impact us personally and this extends to our interaction with other people.

If you are seeking to improve your self confidence consider using words that empower you and start avoiding words that dis-empowers you. For example, if you are asked to do something or you offer to do something avoid the words “I will try”. For that matter there is not such thing as ‘I will try’. If you asked someone to ‘try’ to pick up a chair, they either pick it up or they do not. The use of the word ‘I will try’ in actual fact gives no guarantee that you or anyone else will deliver on what was said. when you are communicating with someone and you want them to do something for you and they use the words ‘I will try’ get them to confirm that they will in actual fact deliver. If they say they ‘I will’ you now have a commitment. More importantly remove the words ‘I will try’ out of your own vocabulary.

Additional to these words like saying “I am sorry’ every time you do something also dis-empowers you especially when you are learning a new skill. Saying sorry also takes your power away as it creates the perception of failure or that you not sure of yourself. Using the word ‘I think’ does not support your conviction about something either. Have a look at the list of words below and see how they dis-empower one, so commit to stop using them.

I think

I hope to

What should I do ?

I will try

It is not my fault


I will see

I am surviving

I am just living


If only

I should

I am not sure

What will I do?

It is a problem

It does not matter (when it does matter)

I can’t

It is terrible

Remember if you are just saying these words to please others you are doing an injustice to your own GREATNESS and when you dis-empower yourself it chips away at your self confidence and self esteem. Have a look at the list of words below and say them out aloud and notice the feeling of power they give. So start to include these into your vocabulary.

I will

I am totally responsible

I am confident

I can

I own it

I won’t

This is a wonderful opportunity

I want to learn

I see it as a challenge

It is a learning experience

I know

I can

I commit

I know I can

I will confirm that

I am sure



One’s sense of self changes when one uses powerful words, and this impacts our outer world in the sense that people react differently to people who display inner strength than those who come across weak. This also displays you as a reliable person and this supports you need to become ‘your word’. Using empowering words in your speech gives you instant power. Enjoy playing and exploring this concept.
