The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword | Ep. 39

And how to use this power in your life

An old saying that’s been around since the 1800s, this statement is still mightily relevant in our modern times.

I will discuss the beginnings of this statement and how we still have a long way to go to leverage the power and wisdom this statement holds.

The very fact this was a statement written almost 200 years ago speaks to the power it holds.

Let’s dig in.

What’s Happening in Today’s Episode

Using written words to change how we operate as humans can be the most powerful tool in the world. Words and ideas have the power to transform the way we live each day. When ideas are applied, transformation happens.

History has been changed many times over by incredible ideas that stick with us. Ideas and stories inspire us to be the best version of ourselves. We can leverage this in our life every day as well.

When we seek to censor and limit our ability to speak freely, horrible things tend to happen. This has also been repeated throughout history many times. Freely speaking and sharing ideas has the power to transform.

Censoring and restricting ideas has the power to limit and retard our potential. Powers at be wish to keep us locked in a place of darkness and ignorance. Ideas and words change all this. It’s why so many are desperate to censor and silence.

But we will not be silenced!

Here is a quick highlight of the main topics discussed:

  • Introduction to the idea of “The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword”

  • Definition and history

  • The role of language and communication

  • The importance of free speech

  • The dangers of censorship

  • Examples in movies and novels of this concept

  • Conclusion

Using ideas and stories to transform our world has always been part of the human journey. It’s the way we influence change and build new worlds. It’s how we bring ideas to life. Thoughts to reality.

Writing, communicating, and sharing allow us to unleash what lives within us and share the power we each hold. We all have power and gifts to share with the world, and writing is the most tried and true way to do so.

As always, with every episode of my show, I aim to share things that may resonate to be used in your life today. Studying the concepts of self-mastery will hopefully give you the tools to tap into your highest potential.
