“If you drop the value of words, they never get to touch you.”
I just love this advice tidbit, from the always-glowing and beautiful Salma Hayek. I especially love her point about being told something negative in a different language, and how it doesn’t affect us unless we understand what the words mean.
Let that astute point really sink in.
I’ve counseled many humans about the significance of statements like these – as a medical doctor in my office, as a digital entrepreneur specializing in branding and growth, as a parent to growing children. I even have to remind my own self of this, and regularly.
And yes, contrary to popular belief, even physicians need to hear this every so often, repeated to us with love. We are, after all, all human.
It comes down to believing in yourself. And not allowing others to pull you down.
