Words Can Wound-Words Can Heal

Let me tell you a true story story…

There I was, 17 years old, 6’3″tall and weighing 129 pounds of rippling, power packed muscle. I really did look like a broomstick with glasses.

I was standing in front of a full length mirror combing my hair when my aunt, who was visiting from out of town, passed by, looked at me and said,” You know Mike it’s a damn good thing God gave you personality because he sure didn’t give you looks.” She laughed and moved on past me.

I just stood there in shock and disbelief not knowing what to say.

If you were standing in my place and heard these words directed at you how would you have felt?

I didn’t realize the long term impact her words would have on me during the coming years and how I would struggle to heal and grow beyond their bite.

For many years after I was married whenever my wife and I were dressed to go out on the town she would look at me with admiration and say, “Mike, do you ever look handsome.”

For a long time my response would be, “Carol, I’m clean and I smell good but don’t get carried away.”

The lesson I learned from this is clear: We don’t always know how our words affect others. Once they leave our mouth it’s impossible to get them back and their negative, destructive impact can remain for years.

Because of this hurtful event I became committed to monitoring my mouth to make certain I didn’t hurt others in the name of trying to be funny. Being human, I sometimes fail but when I do I immediately say I’m sorry and get back on track.

I ask you… can you relate to this story? Has something like this ever happened to you? How did you handle it and how did you overcome the negative impact on your life?

This is just one of the stories from Mike’s Top Selling book “Embracing the Mystery” (Living the Life You Want) you’ve got to get your copy of this fantastic book at http://motivationalplus.com/cgi/a/t.cgi?mystery

Both my daughter and I have finished reading your book, “Embracing the Mystery.” What a great read! Thank you for writing it… Very Uplifting. John M. Ontario Canada

 

New Song: Walking the World Without You

By | Anxiety, grieving, grieving, Inspiration, music, Spirituality, Uncategorized | No Comments

This song was inspired by the fact that a lot of friends, family and cherished pets are passing on leaving us lost, alone and devastated. The melody has been echoing in my mind for some months and the words just came recently as I reflected on the brevity of life and the reality of death. I hope you like it and don’t find it too sad.

Coping with Toxic Parents

If Your Problem, As A Teacher, Involves Not Knowing How To Cope With Difficult/Toxic Parents And Fellow Staff Members And You Want To Solve It NOW Then  Read On…

A True Story

I recall teaching with a young woman who was going through hell and was forced to take an extended stress leave because of one toxic parent and one unethical fellow staff member.

What was the problem?

Her teaching style was low key.  She was a bit shy and lacked confidence when talking to parents and peers.

Because of this she was perceived as dull, uninteresting, weak and incompetent even though her students seemed to like her. (What we do in the name of concern for students.)

After 6 months on stress leave she returned to teach at another school under a stronger, more understanding and supportive principal. She never had a problem like that again and is now approaching 20 years in the profession.

The sad fact is that I have seen this type of story played out far too often with  more tragic results.

It is one of the reasons I have committed myself to becoming an advocate for teachers to help promote fair treatment, self confidence, assertiveness, joy and a healthy productive relationship between teacher and parent.

The Awesome Power of Positive Thought

By | Anxiety, Food for Thought, Inspiration, Motivation, Self Confidence, Self Improvement, staff morale, Stress Management | No Comments

Hi. I’m Mike Moore and I’m a Canadian motivational speaker/humourist.

For years I struggled to conquer my out of control fear and anxiety.

When things reached a ridiculous point  where I couldn’t stand it any longer  I had to do something about it  right away.

To learn what I did…READ ON…

 

Let me Share my Story

When I was in my mid 20s I was a bundle of fear and anxiety.

I couldn’t sleep and the more I couldn’t sleep the more I worried about not being able to sleep. I dreaded the idea of going to bed at night.

I also feared getting cancer or dying of a heart attack.

Any pimple on my nose instantly became cancer of the nose.

I even feared getting married and having children because I feared something terrible happening to them.

I wasn’t living fully I was living fearfully. FEAR AND WORRY HAD OVERTAKEN MY LIFE.

Every time I went to the doctor about an ailment and they told me that I was fine, I didn’t believe them.

They must have missed something.

This continued until I had had enough and decided to do something about it.

I began by researching the subject and applying what I learned to my own life.

Two books that literally transformed my life were How to Stop Worrying and Start Living and The Power of Positive Thinking. I also became very proficient at self hypnosis and the Relaxation Response.

Things began to improve right away using the Awesome Power of Positive Thought.

 

We all know that positive thoughts and visualization are really effective when it comes to re-educating our subconscious mind and changing our behavior.

My interest in the life changing power of positive thought and visualization started in my mid-twenties (quite a few years ago) when I picked up a copy of Norman Vincent Peale’s best seller “The Power of Positive Thinking”. That book was a great inspiration which eventually lead to the creation of 121 Thoughts of Hope, Joy and Inspiration based on years of successful, and practical application of it’s principles.
