Nigerian human rights activist and motivational speaker, Reno Omokri, has taken to social media to educate people on the negative impacts of words they said to themselves.
Speaking through his facebook account, Reno Omokri, disclosed that people should understand the power of framing and use it to their advantages. He emphasized that people should learn how to control their mind before reacting to any question.
In addition, he noted that negative situations at times can be projected positively.
He wrote: "Ubderstand the power of framing, and use it to your advantage. For example, don’t say ‘I am unemployed’, or ‘I am jobless’. Say ‘I am in between jobs’. The 3 statements mean exactly the same thing. But they will elicit different reactions from people because of the pow er of framing."
"Don’t just say the first thing that comes to your mind. That is impulsiveness. Your mind is not your boss. It is your tool. Let it feed you with words, then use your conscious mind to frame them in ways that best project you."
"Even negative situations can be projected positively" - he concluded.
