I had a dental appointment this morning and while I was sitting in the waiting area to be seen, I immediately thought about the connection between our mouths and our take off. Question of the day for my coachable friends – Is your mouth keeping you from flying?!
Thank God today is not a day I’m dealing with any dental problems or issues, this visit is preventive care. That’s a whole different message. But while I was waiting, I still couldn’t help but think about those people on this flight called life who can’t seem to get any further in life because they have too many issues with their mouth. There are literally people traveling on this journey with us whose mouth is their biggest problem. Yuck mouths, smart mouths, potty mouths,…not a good look especially if you plan on being promoted. Those who don’t have any control over how they come across, that’s not helpful to your life momentum. Those whose mouths has them stuck, unable to go anywhere personally or professionally can blame others all they want. At the end of the day it’s on you. Your mouth can really get you in a lot of trouble.
See, I’ve been there. Unable to communicate my feelings properly. Having a hard time speaking truth with tact. Knowing what’s worth my words and what isn’t. I’ve experienced serious trouble in times past expressing myself without crying or becoming angry or disrespectful to others. It’s been a real journey for me, but I learned much attention must be given to my mouth and even deeper that that my heart. Truth is, some people can’t control their mouths and they are constantly saying whatever comes to their mind. Then there are those who never get the courage to speak up and say what needs to be said. Their mouths are always on mute when they need to speak up. Sadly, there are some people in environments where they’re encouraged to express themselves without weighing the consequences of their words. People will tell them say what’s on your mind. That’s fine if your mind is in the right place. Unfortunately, expressing yourself while in the wrong frame of mind is the perfect way to crash and burn. Some speak too quickly and lose favor with the exact people who could help them get further.
This connection between what comes out of your mouth and your ascent is one we all need to put some more time and attention into. Just as I visited my dentist for a regular check up, we all need accountability partners who we check in with regularly who help support us in being responsible with what we say and what we do. Often what comes out of our mouths is only an indication of what’s going on in our hearts and minds. Our mouths are an instrument or tool used to express how we feel, think, what we believe. So even beyond our mouth check ups, we should take time to evaluate our heart posture often, because it has a huge effect on all areas of our life.
The heart, mind and mouth are all a part of a team working to represent us. You can sort of consider them your unofficial flight crew. See, if you and I don’t take the time to pay special attention to everyone one of our gates we could end up in trouble. The ear, mouth and eyes are gates just like the ones we leave from at the airport and the same way we have to find out what gate our plane is departing from; we need to do the same thing in our lives if we ever expect to go somewhere great! If you intend on taking off and getting to your desired destination; watch your mouth. Today I challenge you to say only the things that help you grow and get to your next level. Some of the things you are normally not careful about allowing to come of your mouth are not beneficial to your elevation. Don’t say it unless it’s moving you closer to your purpose. There are even some people who are a bad influence and their reckless behavior and lack of restraint when it comes to what they say and even do is detrimental to your ascension. AVOID THEM until you’re able to intelligently articulate what you will and will not tolerate at this point in your life. It’s not hard to say “Watch Your Mouth Around Me!”
If people are comfortable putting themselves down around you, stop them. If people are saying destructive words in your presence, excuse yourself. It’s not good for your mental health to be in toxic relationships where words are thrown around that don’t build and take you higher. You deserve to be treated with honor. First start by honoring your spirit by speaking only things that bring life and support you in your efforts to get closer to your destiny. I am cheering you on. This is going to be a great week for you because your mouth is not going to get you in trouble. It’s actually going to help you, especially the more you begin to check how you use it. I challenge you to only speak those words that help you soar!
