Words And Thoughts
The power of language is the other side of the power of thought.
Nobody, even the world’s best scientists are sure how, specifically, they are connected.
People do make assumptions about you if you don’t say much.
Beyond language, we still have a lot of ways to measure somebody.
If somebody doesn’t say much, but they have an intelligent look in their eyes, we’ll make some assumptions.
If somebody doesn’t say much, but their face radiates a tinge of anxiety, we’ll make some assumptions.
If somebody doesn’t say much, but their face radiates a kind of cluelessness, we’ll make some assumptions.
Any one of these three imaginary scenarios will be significantly enhanced, or changed, with just a few words.
If you’re a fan of well written movies, a few very well spoken words can change EVERYTHING.
One of my favorite examples is in the Korean movie, “The Man From Nowhere.”
A common movie about an unassuming guy who has a secret past as a highly trained killer.
Then some bad guys mess with him, thinking he’s just some goof.
Then they wake up his killer and the dude goes on a rampage, spectacularly killing all the bad guys, saving all the good guys.
The line in question is when the bad guys, accompanied by their bad-guy-assassin, are driving away from the good-guy-assassin’s house.
They had go to his place to pick something up.
They thought he was some kind low status regular guy.
But in the process of picking up whatever they picked up, somebody got shot.
So the bad guys, including the trained bad guy assassin, were driving away form the good guy assassin’s place.
The bad guy assassin was quite.
Something was wrong.
All the other bad guys were thinking it was a done deal.
Then the bad guy assassin said something that changed everything:
We’re In Trouble
“He didn’t flinch.”
The other bad guys said, “What?”
The bad guy assassin repeated that one sentence.
“He didn’t flinch.”
Meaning when the bad guys shot somebody, the unassuming guy, who they thought was just a regular dude, didn’t flinch.
Most normal people cower in fear when a gun goes off next to them.
But this guy not only didn’t cower in fear, but he didn’t even flinch.
One Scene Changes Everything
This simple observation let the bad guy assassin know that they had just messed with a highly experienced, highly trained killer.
This is the absolute power of words.
It’s one thing to be hanging out with a group of people, radiating a kind of comfortable intelligence.
But one short phrase, or collection of phrases, can change EVERYTHING.
To destroy the bad guys.
To raise up the good guys.
