6 Life Ownership Affirmations

Good Saturday, my friends. Especially in challenging times, it’s easy to begin thinking you have no control over the outcome of your life.

You might feel like driftwood floating on the ocean of life going wherever the waves push you. It can be an appealing concept, in some ways, to believe your helpless and powerless against the forces of life.

True, there are some rules in this game we’ve agreed to play that we can’t change. We’re born and we die. We may have bad things happen to us as a child that were not in our control. We may have illness or hardship visit our lives.

Even the negative effects of these “rules of the game” can be mitigated by empowered thinking and determined action. Beyond these few broad outlines, pretty much everything else in your life is a choice.

You may have to work to earn a living, but you don’t “have to” stay in that job. It may be easier to stay in a difficult relationship than to start over, but you don’t “have to.” You may have a bucketload of responsibility, but that doesn’t mean you “have to” abandon your dreams.

You have. You have choices. You have the power.

Here are some affirmations for affirming that power. use them regularly for best results.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

See The Good

We live in a world where seeing the bad, the ugly, and the disheartening is just too damn easy.

Sometimes you have to work hard too see the good. Make it a point to do so today.

See the good. Experience the beauty around you. Spread some joy. Partake in the fun. Smile, smile, and smile some more.

Life is serious, but not so serious that you must live without the happiness you deserve.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you’re awesome!

Hey, my friends.

What Kind of Year Will 2020 Be? – Day 319 of 365 Days to a Better You

We did it! After much fanfare, we’ve entered a new year and a new decade. The natural question is what kind of year will 2020 be? We don’t need a crystal ball or big data to predict the coming year.

It’s predictable because of age-old measures that will determine where you and we will be one year from tonight. This year, like every other year, will be decided by your thinking, and your acting. It will be decided by stories you tell yourself about who you are and how the world is.

It will also be decided by the collective thoughts an actions of all humanity. Will we choose bright, unlimited horizons or will we choose to relive times of darkness and repression?

No one can stand against your determination to change your personal destiny. No power can stand against our universal aspirations, if only we remain determined and committed to making them our reality.

Yes! 2020 is not up to fate. It’s up to us. Let’s get started!

Just in case no one has reminded you today, you’re awesome!

Eliminate Limiting Self-Talk – Day 313 of 365 Days to a Better You

They say you are what you eat and it’s true. Equally, true is you are what you think. What you think constantly – your Self-talk – is who you become. How many times a day are you thinking and even saying these limiting words and allowing them to take root in your consciousness? The first step is to notice them. The second is to eliminate or at least reduce them.

  1. I can’t…
  2. I’ll never…
  3. I’m too…
  4. I’m powerless to…
  5. I’m not as good as…
  6. I’m no good at…
  7. I’m a victim of…
  8. It’s just the way I am.
  9. I always (negative thought)…
  10. (Some outside force…often God or government) will do it for me.
  11. I’m not meant to be happy, successful, etc.

You may may hear these in your head or you may have some of your own. Reverse your limiting thoughts and turn them into your affirmations. Use the affirmations until you have banished the limiting thoughts.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!
