We humans are made up of emotions , thoughts and a never-ending relentless thinking process . Yes those thoughts that are made up of words .
But when we talk about the powerful words , these are the words that shoves your mind to feel and exxagerate at different points .when you feel low , they can make you feel high , when you are so excited , one word can make you feel stressed out , that’s the power of words.
Many of researchers have got startling results on how words can influence our mind .
Forget about all , just listen to this what happens when you see those motivational ted talks , what happens when you listen to your favourite motivational songs , Its not the background music , the source or the page but they are those Words .
Using brain imaging, scientists have built a map displaying how words and their meanings are represented across different regions of the brain.
I will make sure that the research will help you to get to the point , but now getting back instantly to our 4 powerful words that can help you to influence the person next sitting to you .
Let’s dive into it…..
This word not only helps to get attention of the reader , your first client or your first audience rather it makes them stick to the page or to feel audited towards the speaker or writer .
What happens when someone tells you “you can do this , go ahead ” or “you are responsible for your great success ” .
It gives you a sense of personal attention that’s why you listen to the speaker .scientists have researched that A single brain spot is associated with a number of related words.

Why we humans only trust the reasons , the reason behind each sentence because we love reasons they are like the explanation behind every thought , every mistake and even every word that you speak.
Since, I have already use because to show you it’s power now read this example
“Excuse me , I have to dial a number, can I use your phone ”
” Excuse me , I have to dial this number because it’s urgent , can I use your phone”
“Excuse me ,I have to dial this number because I have list my phone, can I use your phone ”
Just think about the 3 examples you have just read above, it’s resembles the same study which is very famous and was firstly showed up by copybloggers by Gregory Ciotti.
In which the first example show only 60% compliance .
The second example shows 93%compliance but the third example has the most significant and powerful reason which makes it 94% compliance .
So this means if your request is small follow your request with the word “because ” and win others trust by giving a perfect reason.
This word in itself shows the empathy and the reason to provide value to someone .
“I really care about you ” in this sentence when the person is told in a positive way , the brain boosts up it gets rewired and the beleive of the next person in you turns out to be a great sense of beleive in yourself.
The power of positive words are explained in various books but there is one such story that changed a shy , introvert and young child lifes with his “A” grade story in which his teacher beleived and Cared about him in such a way that he ends up turning his dreams into realities .
” the power of the spoken word! We never know but what we say and the way we say it might completely change someone’s life.”
