I Can and I Can’t

Today’s Affirmation

I can, I know I can, and today I am.

Every day, dozens of times a day, you make a fundamental choice for that moment and your future.

That choice is “I can” or “I can’t.”

Each and every time you make that choice you either open the door to new possibilities or you slam that door shut.

Usually, you’re not saying the words out loud. They’re almost subconscious as you approach the decision on how to handle a thousand situations each day.

The key is each choice also builds momentum for the next choice. One “I can” quickly leads to ten more. One “I can’t” does the same.

Soon we’re living whole days, months, and years with one or the other as well-worn approach to life.

It’s never too late to change. Every choice is a new opportunity to put your trust again in “I can.”

Wherever you are on your journey today, know that you are awesome!

Starts with Me Affirmation

This affirmation reminds us that we can’t wait for the world to change in the ways we want or count on others to do it.

We must be the agents of the change we seek. Where else can it begin? Who else can spark it?

When you really think about it, there’s a damn good chance the reason you have a passion for the change you seek is you came here to be a part of it.

Let it begin today and let it begin with you.

Just in case no one else reminds you today, you are awesome!

Opportunity Affirmations

Today’s Thought:

“Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.”
~Emily Dickinson

focus on success magnifying glassIf there is one defining difference between positive thinkers and negative thinkers, successful people and unsuccessful people, happy people and unhappy people; it must be their responses to opportunity.

Those on the negative of scale see few opportunities. It’s not enough for opportunity to knock on their door. They expect opportunity to break their door down and plead with them to pursue it. They go through life with arms crossed, doubting everything and everyone, and hanging a big “NO” sign on their foreheads. They can see only the risk and not the reward. And life obliges by constantly appearing risky and saying “NO” to them.

Those on the successful side see opportunities everywhere and are always listening for the lightest knock of opportunity upon their doors. “Never knowing when the dawn will come,” as Dickinson says, these people position themselves to say “YES” to life because they know that is how life will say “YES” to them. They know that there is no reward without risk, but they are able to focus on the rewards. And life obliges by bringing both opportunity and reward their way.

Which are you? When someone comes to you with an idea, do you try to see the vision or do you look for the nearest escape hatch? Do you dream and follow your dreams or consider them a meaningless waste of time? You see, life is watching and it is constantly manifesting precisely what you expect from it.

Here are 13 opportunity affirmations written to help you commit to seizing opportunities and running with them. Dream on!

  1. Today is MY day! The winds of opportunity are blowing my way!
  2. Every day is blank and I am eager to fill it up with new possibilities!
  3. I see opportunities! I seize opportunities! I capitalize on opportunities!
  4. The more opportunities I listen to, the more opportunities I find!
  5. When I am ready to try, I am ready to fly!
  6. When I open the door for opportunity, I open the door for my dreams!
  7. When opportunity knocks, I am the first one to the door!
  8. As long as there is breath, there is opportunity!
  9. Opportunity is everywhere for me! My personal economy is booming!
  10. My missed opportunities are really my new opportunities!
  11. I say YES to life and life says YES to me!
  12. Defeat is my opportunity! Victory is my opportunity! Every circumstance is my opportunity!
  13. The Universe showers me with opportunities and today I make the most of them!

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

I Choose Affirmations – Day 267 of 365 Days to a Better You

Choice, my friends, is the foundation of freedom. In modern free societies, you are offered so many choices that you can lose your ability to recognize the critical choices.

Walk down the typical chip aisle in an American grocery store and you’re presented hundreds of choices. You may walk up and down for several minutes trying to make a choice. Turn in your TV and you may ha e several hundred channels to choose from.

These kinds of choices are superficial choices; really almost a distraction. Yes, it’s wonderful to have so many choices, but choosing one bag of chips over another or one TV show over another changes little in the outcome of your life.

The choices that really matter are the ones we’ve fought centuries to achieve and fight today to maintain. Your exact list will be unique to you. However, I wrote these affirmations to cover some of the big ones.

These affirmations affirm both your right to choose and your power to choose.

Conscious Becoming – Day 239 of 365 Days to a Better You

The highest reward for a person’s toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.

~John Ruskin

It’s happening every moment of every day. There, it just happened again. With every sensory impression, thought, word, action, experience, you’re becoming something different than you were the moment before. So is everyone and everything else around you.

This is a natural process of our universe. As far as we know everything is subject to it. To say that you are this or you are that is not a static definition. It’s a snapshot captured in an instant of constantly unfolding process; one that never ends.

However, this is more than a philosophical banter on a Monday morning. This universal process can be harnessed toward your objectives.

If you’re constantly changing, why not change into what you choose? Why not make the process conscious?

You certainly have control of your thoughts, words, and actions. You can modify them before and as they occur. You may not have complete control of your sensory impressions or your experiences, but you do have some control over how you respond to them and who you become as a result of them.

Things aren’t just out there randomly happening, though it can seem that way. What you’re becoming, consciously or unconsciously, is the result of your active participation in the process. Your expectations attract like experiences. Your pattern of thought generate more similar thoughts. How you precess your experiences becomes your reality.

You are becoming. Don’t become accidentally. Be conscious become who you choose.

Thank you all for stopping by and for your comments, likes, and support!
