Decide the Words You Want to Empower

Do you believe that words have power?  If so, you are not alone.

As I started to write this article I did a quick search for the phrase “words have power”.  There were 396,000 references for that phrase.

Depending on your perspective, you may think that number to be low or high, considering that there are an estimated 1.5 billion English language speakers and that there are billions of pages on the Internet.

Because of my interest in the design of a system to enable people to build good cultures, that number is far too low.  If it was up to me, I would prefer that people use the phrase at least a dozen times each day and also write it several times.

Ok, so I wrote that tongue-in-cheek, somewhat.  However, I believe strongly that we need to be much more aware about the power of words, and that we need to put in place strategies and methods that increase such awareness.

Wordsearch puzzles is one such method that ought to be practiced frequently, and that I am promoting both for culture building and as part of the Great Brain Training course program that I am offering.

Below is an example of a wordsearch puzzle from Kate Ellis’ book, “Essentials”, which is included in the course as an ebook.  It is also available for purchase at her EmpowerPuzzles website.


The following words can be found in the puzzle:


There is something rather significant about Kate’s strategy and use of the wordsearch method that needs further clarification and also needs to be studied.

We plan to discuss the special power and potential (no pun intended) of empowerpuzzles on the GreatBrainTraining Forum Boards and write more about it on this site.
