“What we believe about ourselves and life become true for us”
If we expect and believe that life is a struggle for us and that people treat us badly then that is what our experience will be. Likewise if we love ourselves and believe that we deserve all good in our lives and have a right to loving healthy relationships, that is what we will experience.
In a commercial world where every ad is designed to make you think you lack something, you are not good enough or you don’t have enough, it is important to remind yourself of who you are, or even more importantly who you are capable of becoming. While standing in front of the mirror and affirming to yourself the person you will become seems strait out of the SNL skit “Daily Affirmation With Stuart Smalley” , it really is a great way to get back into a motivated mindset.
It’s not about telling yourself a lie. It’s about starting with the end in mind. If you are not even sure what you want out of life, how are you ever going to get it?
You don’t have to stand in front of a mirror or wear a cable knit sweater vest when you do this, but envision the person you want to be in 1 year. Who is that person? What do they look like? What has that person accomplished in the past year? Now work back from that vision to find the steps you need to take to get there.
I want to here from YOU. When you looked at yourself a year away? what did you look like? What had you accomplished? I am excited to hear your vision of yourself.
