Who is excited about the VCU Rams in the Final Four? When I read and watched comments by Coach Smart and the players, I was reminded of the power of words and belief.
I heard verbs of empowerment in the interviews, such as "are", "am", "will". Besides being a great team, these young men sure sound like they believe they can win. Yes, they are skilled athletes who condition, train, and practice. These students also play and talk with confidence. The print and online media I've read quote a team who isn't talking about trying to win....they're doing it.
What is the sound of your language? Does it indicate what's not right with you, your life, or does it sound like possibility?
