Metaphors. We all use it in our lives, sometimes consciously and other times not. Regardless, we need to be aware that they have a huge impact in our lives. It is often said that words are a powerful weapon and that saying is not without merit. Now, the things that we utter to ourselves define the way we perceive and attach meanings to things that happen to us either directly or indirectly. So the next time you say something to yourself, pause for a moment and think if those words are truly what you want your life to be defined by. Better yet, start to consciously associate with better metaphors and repeat them as much as you can.
