About the Book

Deception comes in many forms, but not all deception is born out of malice. In my life, it came in the form of seemingly harmless tales told to me when I was young and impressionable. In my later years, deception reared its seductive head each time I tried to fulfill a goal or satisfy a personal ambition. I became a storyteller. I told myself stories like “It isn’t meant to be.” I bought into the philosophy of “You can’t do that” until I hit an emotional rock bottom and had an epiphany. Now I tell myself a different story. My life has taught me that I have the power to craft my life how I want, to fulfill my hopes and dreams once I realized the key. How you think affects you emotionally, psychologically, and physically. Your words show the world who you are. They determine the relationships you have and express how you feel. Words define the world around you and your perception of it. King Solomon of Old Testament fame wrote often about the power of words. He said, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18–21, NASB). Words are unimaginably powerful. If you want to climb the Everest of personal excellence and create success in life, put this power into play. Words have impact. How do your words impact those around you? Do you treat yourself and others with respect, gratitude, and acceptance? Do you lift up others with a positive attitude or tear them down with negative words? You may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound or bend steel bars with your bare hands or fly faster than a speeding bullet, but you have power like no other being in this world. You are a superhero!

About the Author

Michelle Nold has always been keenly aware of the power of words. As a young child, this power was present in the values she learned about family and responsibility. When she became older, it came in the form of duty as a wife and mother. Words instilled in her a deep sense of obligation to focus her life on pleasing those around her, being who they needed to be, giving what they needed from her to make their lives easier and happier. We all wear many hats throughout our lives, but somehow she was never allowed to wear the one hat that permitted her to accomplish any personal goal or dream. Words robbed her of who she was and wanted to be. She became lost in a never-ending cycle of serving others and suppressing personal dreams. Words saved her when she decided to cast off the victim mind-set and gain a new perspective that led to a life of understanding, respect, and gratitude. King Solomon said, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Only you can decide which it will be.
