Go ahead…spread your wings!

Go ahead… spread your wings!

“It’s not who you are that holds you back; it’s who you think you’re not.” – Barbara Walters

Many of us hold ourselves back from embracing our purpose by not living true to, and not trusting our unique and God-given talents and gifts.  How many of us have let someone talk us out of pursuing something we are good at?  How many of us get deterred by our own doubts about ourselves? No one wins if we underestimate our capabilities and talents.  Our contribution to this world and everyone in it is in direct proportion to our belief that we have something of value to offer.   Make a conscious decision to move forward in life every day with conviction and courage instead of second-guessing or not trusting yourself.  The world needs you to step into your own greatness.  We are all meant to spread our wings and fly! So go for it!

The Art of Affirmations

To affirm means to make firm in one’s mind.  It helps draw into your life what you affirm. Neuroscientists reveal that 70%  of our self talk is both negative and redundant – so consequently it’s important for us to pay attention to what we are saying to ourselves! We need to replace the old dysfunctional beliefs with positive empowering beliefs.  Using affirmations daily will help re-program our thought patterns and change the way we think and feel about things.  They also help ground our purpose.  Saying them with emotion, or as if they have already happened creates more power behind that belief.

Examples of Affirmations:

“I now set new and higher standards for myself and I step up to every challenge in a state of absolute certainty and unstoppable confidence.”

“I am now confident, assertive, and decisive in every decision.”

“All I need is within me now.”

“I live a life of design rather than a life of reaction.”

“There is always abundance in every area of my life.”

“I am improving in mind, body, and soul every day.”

“Wealth, and all good things are now overflowing in my life.”

Try using affirmations on a daily basis, and watch the magic begin to happen.
