From the fruit of their lips people enjoy good things. Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.
One of the greatest ways to work against oneself is to be harsh or careless with ones words. Many people with excellent skills & talent have been unsuccessful, simply because when they open their mouth, they make more enemies than friends.
Words have Life. Words can also bring death. Hence it is important to use them carefully and appropriately.
A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of ones mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it!
Leaders can be highly impactful & influential, if their words are chosen well. Parents can lead their children to amazing heights, if they use encouraging & reprimanding words appropriately. Families can live together, cherish one-another & grow each other by taming their tongue.
If a leader cannot lead himself (including his own tongue), how can he lead others ?
If you seek a good life, a good marriage, a good family, a good standing in society, a good reputation at work, a growing career, then it all starts with the words you use. Good communication leads to Good Life !
