META4

META4

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Drawing attention to empowering words in creative ways excites and delights me.
Hence, our delicious word "Meta4."
Metaphors have the power to instantly intensify words x4.
Their power lies in the ability to paint accurate pictures or illustrative thoughts in the mind about what something is:
+Sherry is a nightowl.
-The classroom is a zoo.
+Love is a fine wine.
-Love is a battlefield.
A metaphor effectively and immediately attaches a negative or positive tone to a person, place, or thing through a word of association.
This is what makes them so brilliant and dynamic.
Metaphors are jeweled words.
------
Meta4ical quotes created by people intensify the strength of a meta4 to an even greater degree.
Consider the authors of these metaphors:
"All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree." -Albert Einstein
"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." -Pablo Picasso
"Conscience is a man's compass."
-Vincent Van Gosh
"Chaos is a friend of mine." -Bob Dylan
"If you want a love message to be heard, it has to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it."
-Mother Teresa
------
We can see through these examples that metaphors wield an extraordinary power. When we put them to use intentionally and attach them to ourselves and others, we wield the power to forcibly and positively impact lives ... beginning with our own.
We become the message we give ourselves.
What an extraordinary and empowering thought!
With this in mind, let's adopt and create four empowering and strategic metaphors for today. Work to create your own and you'll find yourself empowered x4 in the process.
Select four words that "spike" and speak to you and put them to work.
Personal selections:
Passion. Energy. Focus. Adventure.
+She's the heart of a thoroughbred on the home stretch.
+She's a thousand volts of high energy and impact.
+She's an eagle-eye, prize in the sky visionary.
+She's as playful as an otter in adventure.

Change your words,
 and you change your world,
one thought at a time.
Live out an empowering Meta4.
