Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another. – Napoleon Hill
That is a powerful thought. I have never heard it said that way before. People say words can build up or tear down, but I’ve never heard our words planting a seed. Like a seed planted in the ground, we may not see the results of our actions and words right away. It can grow inside someone for days or years before finally having an effect on them. The question is will our words have a positive or negative effect on others?
