Give words a good treat

I live on words;
So nourishing, they are;
I usually savour them;
I don’t eat them raw;
I take time to cook them;
And I chew them well
Before I swallow;
That is the justice
You have to do to words.
Yes, you give them
A good treat;
And they will give you
Their best.

Grind and sifter your words

Do not throw words
Around at random;
Wise people
Don’t do that;
They are careful
With their words;
They know the truth,
About words;
That words have power
To build or destroy;
Depending on how
They are used;
If you don’t want
To cause havoc,
Avoid taking words for granted;
Throwing them at random
Is detrimental;
It is better to grind
And sifter your words well
Before you use them.
Thus, they will bring great results.
Don’t forget,
Results are what you want.

Words and action

Your sweet tongue I love,
But it will not help me;
A sweet tongue
Will not solve my problem,
Though it will make me
Feel fine;
I love it, when I feel fine;
But those words need back up;
And that back up is action;
Action gives value to words;
It is the body of words;
Without action words are empty.
So each time you use words,
Back them up with action,
To give them true meaning.

Don’t talk too much

Don’t talk too much;
You risk saying more than
You should;
And so much damage
You could cause;
Those who talk too much
Weigh not their words
Before they utter them;
Which is a dangerous thing
For anyone to do;
As our people say,
Chew your words well
Before you swallow them;
Say only what
You should say;
Don’t say what
You should not say.
In other words,
Don’t talk too much.

The words you use

Today, I shared with some friends on language especially on the words we use to communicate with others.

My point was, words are very important. They are a powerful communication tool. We have to take care about the words we use because although they can build, they can also destroy.

It is necessary to make sure that we use words that build not words that destroy.

I believe strongly in the power of words to build or destroy. The truth is, the words we use shape the world just a they shape our relationships and our individual and collective destinies.

One word can change the direction of your life. One word can transform your life. One word can lift you out of oblivion into stardom. It all depends on how it is used or how we use it.

There are right words and wrong words for every situation. When you use the right words, you ignite positive waves that work to bring positive results. The reverse is true also. Words are not just like seeds, words are seeds. Some are good seeds and some are bad seeds. But whether good or bad seeds, they grow. The difference is in what they produce. The good seeds produce good fruits while the bad ones produce bad fruit.

Hence, we are encouraged to only sow positive words so that they produce positive results.

You read, hear and see.
Go for the right words
And make your day great.


Life is all about struggle.

You never live without struggle.

Life begins with a struggle.

Life ends with a struggle.

Struggle is the part of our life.

A mother struggles to give birth to her child.

Every living creature struggles for survival.

Struggle is the rule of life.

If you struggle to get something today,

Tomorrow or in your near future, you’ll receive your grand rewards.

Don’t scare to struggle.

Enjoy your struggle and hug it like your true pal.

Your grand success and victory is always waiting for you.

New Word Challenge no 1

Hello fellows! How’s your week? Amazing for me.

New things coming up. Your New Word Challenge.

What about it?

You have to grow in your word vocabulary. Language is power, you know. And you can grow into an iroko just by learning one new word a week.

It mustn’t be high-sounding or jaw breaking word. Just let it be a word you want to get into your functional vocabulary.

No better way to do this than writing about it and sharing.

Every week, we will invite you to send us your new word for the week by sharing our own.

First, you will write, post on your site, then send us the link, or ping.


So easy!

Talk about your new word any way you like: define it, use it in a sentence, ask a question or questions about it, talk about it etc. It’s left to you to decide.

Let me set the ball rolling:

My new word for this week is Millennial.

This word is becoming very common all over the world. But still many people don’t know it. I will get this word into my functional vocabulary by looking up its meaning and using it often. You can join me to make millennial part of your functional vocabulary. Who is ready to join me?


12 big advantages of building a rich vocabulary

If vocabulary is your forte, you are blessed. You are in good stead to succeed. I hope that you will continue to hone your language skills especially your vocabulary, and in particular your functional vocabulary.

Here are 12 reasons a strong vocabulary is good for you..

  1. The world perceives people with rich vocabularies to be more creative, and more intelligent.
  2. People with larger vocabularies get hired quicker,
  3. People with larger vocabularies are promoted faster.
  4. People with larger vocabularies are listened to more.
  5. The big winners are the ones who are able to use rich vocabularies with grace. 
  6. People with good vocabularies use words which fit the situation.
  7.  People with rich vocabularies carry out rich conversations.
  8. People with rich vocabularies hardly sound inappropriate.
  9. Their words and sentences slide gracefully off their tongues.
  10. People with rich vocabularies are more esteemed and more respected.
  11. People with good vocabularies sound more confident.
  12. People with good vocabularies are more interesting to listen to and to read.

How do you build a good vocabulary that will stand you in good stead to succeed?

Experts say “the difference between a respected vocabulary and a mundane one is only about fifty words! You don’t need so much to sound like a big winner. A mere few dozen words will give the impression that you have an original and creative mind.”

 “In his book”How to talk to anyone,” Lell LOWNDES says acquiring a “super vocabulary is easy. You needn’t strain to do that.”

Let me summarise the advice that Lell Lowandes gives.  He advises you to think of a few tired, overworked words you use every day – words like smart, nice, pretty, or good. Then get a dictionary or book of synonyms (online) Look up the boring, tired word and find a list of alternatives. Taking the word smart as an example, he says you will find dozens of synonyms such as ingenious, resourceful, adroit, shrewd. You must choose a few favourite ones and practise saying them aloud ‘until they become a natural staple of your vocabulary.’  The next time you want to compliment someone on being smart, say instead:

“How ingenious!” “It’s ingenious!”

“How astute!” “Quite astute of you”

“That is resourceful”

“That is clever.”

If you do this, and take it serious, within a short time, you will be far ahead of thousands of your peers.

Dear friend, flying to the top is not magic. Sometimes, just a little trick will put you miles ahead.
