Words have power to create or destroy and by choosing words wisely you can accomplish what you want.

Words if used unconsciously can bring unwanted experiences but if spoken with purpose and precision they can also pave the way for your dreams to become real.

Niurka, who is the author of the new book, Supreme Influence: Change Your Life with the Power of the Language You Use, teaches readers in depth how to command words to create reality on purpose.

According to her, power to achieve goals is intrinsically linked to the ability to develop relationships, which reflects the quality of the communication.

First step is to be clear on your intent.

Clarity is power. Be clear on what you want rather than what you don't want. Then take purposeful action toward your goal without attachment to how it shows up. Without clear intent you can get lost, derailed, or waste time.

Second step is to evoke empowered states.

The words 'think of a time' have power to summon states. Think of a specific time when you accomplished something that inspired you. Allow a moment to access the memory, which reintegrates the empowered state.

Now think of a specific time in the future where being in this empowered state will be valuable to you, and bring these resources into that moment.

Third step is to imagine and paint a picture.

You create with the pictures in your mind as your power to create cannot exceed your ability to vividly imagine your dreams as real. Therefore imagine and see what you want in your mind's eye.

Paint a big, bright, crisp and clear picture, enriched with the colours. Step into the picture and look out through your own eyes as if it's happening now.

Fourth step is to gather information; create understanding, which means clearly understanding whether you communicate properly or not and also understand another's mindscape.

Fifth step is to replace 'but' with 'and' to dissolves resistance.

The word 'But' negates and if used unconsciously, this word can create disharmony. Unless you intend to negate, it's wiser to use the word 'And.'

Sixth step is to be cautious of words like 'Try' and 'Need.'

The challenge with the word 'try' occurs when it's used in the context of achieving a goal, or making a decision. Trying creates conditions for mediocrity. Also beware of the word 'need' because it presupposes absence or lack.

Seventh step is carefully choosing word 'I AM'

What do you say after the words 'I AM'? The words you choose influence how you see yourself, how others see you, and what's possible for you. When you use the words I Am, you invoke your power to create. These words are potent! Be aware of what you link them to.

Eighth step is choosing 'The Silent Space' as silence speaks louder than words.

It's not genuine to say whatever you want as it's considered to be undisciplined. On the other hand, if you speak too little, you don't honour your truth. Balancing speech and silence is essential as silence gives words their weight.
