Welcome to our conversation.

I agree that wars/fights start and end with the words we use.

The biggest external battles are created by some one's own unresolved internal battles stimulated, facilitated, and perpetuated by self-talk, words.

Perhaps that is why after I talk myself into a certain direction (once its validated as positive) I quit the internal dialogue and just do it (other than of course that necessary coaching encouragement).

Life is often about knowing what words to use when we talk and when to just shut-up and breathe.

Nice to have you here.
