While driving to Dallas today I saw a sign that said “Losing is Believing”, then tons of other 3 word phrases began to pop in my head… Here are 10:
1. Stand and fight.
2. Losing is winning.
3. Never let go.
4. I will win.
5. I am tough.
6. Never give up.
7. Always look up.
8. Know your worth.
9. Just do it.
10. You are amazing.
Sometimes, shorter is better. Precise, concise, and direct speaking can be powerful. It definitely gets my attention.
These are phrases worth speaking to ourselves and others. Write them down, or even meditate on them.
Me and a friend were discussing the word ‘gullible’ because someone told her that she was gullible. Some things are not very easy to swallow, yet they are very necessary to ponder on. We all need to hear those things about us that are not so great. If we’re never made aware of our weaknesses, how can we ever improve?
So, let’s take a closer look at ‘gullible’.
Gullible = Easily deceived or cheated.
Synonyms of gullible = Naïve, innocent, simple, green.
Antonyms of gullible = Discerning, knowledgeable, perceptive, wise.
The antonyms of a word are always so interesting to me! They paint a clearer picture of what the word is NOT so that you can gain a deeper understanding.
The next time someone labels you something that you may not necessarily like, take a step back and gain understanding. It may help you to grow and become better!
Be open. Don’t be gullible, be knowledgeable!
I am in love with this word! I was looking up the definition again so I could add it to the ‘Words! Page’ and this time I also reviewed the antonyms. You have to check this out! If you haven’t already, read the post over the scripture Psalm 66:10. That’s where it all started. 🙂
Refined = Free from impurities.
Synonyms of refined = Developed, evolved, forward, higher, improved, progressive, advanced.
Antonyms of refined = Backward, lower, nonprogressive, retarded, rude, undeveloped.
The scripture Psalm 66:10 states: “For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.”
This word is powerful for me. It is a reminder that if I am not tested, I am not refined, and if I am not refined, I will be undeveloped. Or even nonprogressive. Yuck. Both of those words make my stomach turn. 🙂
