The limits of our language are the limits of our world

All transformation is linguistic. 

If we have any desire to create a better future for ourselves, it can only happen through a shift in our language. By having a conversation that we’ve never had before. 

Years ago, I sought out a more precise grasp of my own creative process. I became curious about the architecture around what the I do all day. 

And so, as an experiment, I began to formally document all of the principles and practices that have silently guided my creative work for the past two decades. 

It was a blast. In fact, I wrote a trilogy of books about it. Each of which included a robust glossary. A working vocabulary that permitted me to communicate with myself and others about my creativity. 

That glossary changed everything. Crafting and employing a lexicon of words and phrases helped me feel empowered to speak a language that supported my intentions. It built the machinery that regulated my emotions. And it allowed me to explain my own life to myself in a more clear, quick and competent way. 

All of which led to new projects, increased happiness, higher earnings, more connections and bigger opportunities. 

Proving, that limits of our language are the limits of our world. If you want more leverage for changing the context of your world, use your words. 

Start by substituting new language that supports your intention to move in a desired direction.  


Is the vocabulary you’re using locking you into ways of thinking and behaving that limit your ability to see new possibilities?
