A Different Language

I was travelling on a bus when I saw two secondary school students talking to each other right in front of me. No, despite what the title of my blog says, they are not talking to each other in different languages. They were communicating in English.

What caught my attention was that they were speaking to each other with enthusiasm and although I could not really hear what they say, I could roughly hear that they were talking about programming or coding stuff.

I am not an IT person. Neither am I a computer programmer. But I could feel their excitement when they were talking and discussing about whatever they were talking about, and that led me to think… They are speaking a very different language… one that I am not familiar with, but one that makes me curious about their excitement.

This prompted me to think a little further. While we all have different spoken language all over the world, we also have different unspoken languages. Unspoken languages like our passion, our interests. Unspoken languages like our society classes. Unspoken languages of our social network, friends, family. These languages work in a very interesting way. They shape our lives. You may not understand what I am trying to say here. Let me explain.

Take me for example.

When I was young, I spoke a language of mediocrity. I did not dare to dream, I had limiting beliefs about myself. Why? Because I was brought up in a humble family where the belief was that we are born and destined to be poor, and we can only mix around with the poor. That was my language back then – we are humble, we were set for life to remain that way. Our most important task was to study hard, get a degree, get a good job and work our way till we die. I was programmed to accept this as my life. Although I knew that was not what I wanted, I had to accept that this was my language. As I grew older, I got to know some friends whose families did better financially. So I tried to learn their language. I tried to learn their mindsets but very soon, I used my old language again. I can never be like them, I told myself. Life continued on… I continued to use the language of mediocrity.

When I started working, I learned another language. This time I had new friends, new colleagues. I started learning and speaking the language of acceptance. I wanted to be accepted by them. I wanted people to be my friends. So I adopted their language. I did the things they did. I sat around for long hours drinking coffee and talked of gossips daily. I smoked, got drunk and gambled my money away. I was ‘cool’. I was speaking their language, and this time, I began to speak a different language.

In my late twenties, I learned of another language. I learned the language of love. Yes, from the moment I fell in love with my wife (then girlfriend), to the moment I had my children in my arms, I have been speaking the language of love. Love is powerful. With love, I soon realised I no longer need to speak the language of acceptance. Well, not as often. Because this new language gives me power. It gave me the power to focus on what is really important in my life. It gave me the power to think for the first time what language should I be speaking? The language of love is a good start. It felt good.

Today, I speak the language of dreams. Through the power of love, I have yet learned another language – the language of dreams. The ability to realise that I am worthy of speaking more than the language of mediocrity and the language of acceptance, together with the language of love, has awakened me to this most powerful language for me – dreams. Yes, today I dare to dream and I am not the only one that speaks this language now. Around me, I have many friends who speak the same language and we help many people learn this language too.

There are many other languages in the world. This is my story, and it is to illustrate that the language you speak in will determine the life you live.

When you speak the language of engineering, you will probably be working with engineers.

When you speak the language of science, you will probably be working with scientists.

When you speak the language of art, you are probably very artistic.

When you speak the language of trade, your acquaintances are probably businessmen.

When you speak the language of negativity, your life will be filled with disasters.

When you speak the language of positivity, your life will be filled with hope.

When you speak the language of limitations, your life will be filled with impossibilities.

When you speak the language of creativity, your life will be filled with ideas.

When you speak the language of gossips, your life will be filled with other peoples’ stories.

When you speak the language of love, your life will be filled with miracles.

When you speak the language of poverty, your life will be filled with complaints.

When you speak the language of dreams and fulfillment, your life will be filled with abundance.

My friends, choose your language wisely.
