Thank you for your patience during my posting drought these past few weeks. My day job has been over-the-top busy. I hope you and those important to you are thriving! I’m back with five affirmations for this Saturday.
I also want to share that I’m beginning work on a new audio book that will also be available in print. The working title has been the tagline of the TAS platform for the past year – Put Your Mind on Your Side.
I’ll be sharing details and snippets as the work progresses.
Wherever you are on your journey, remember you are awesome!
You’ve been told enough times in your life where you’ve failed and fallen short. It’s time to acknowledge and give in a little to your greatness. It’s not about ego. It’s about seeing the amazing gifts and resources you bring to the table and the amazing accomplishments you’re capable of.
Once you are reminded and focused on seeing your own greatness, this affirmation also asks you to pay it forward and remind the people around you of their greatness too. Imagine a world of people shining in their greatness rather than wallowing in their “less than.” For best results, listen to this affirmation regularly and with headphones.
First-person: I see my greatness and I help others to see their greatness too.
Second-person: You see your greatness and you help others to see their greatness too.
Wherever you are on your journey today, see your greatness.
That statement holds a ton of power and also a lot of responsibility. Many people will argue against it, citing all the reasons we’re just powerless leaves floating down the rushing river of existence. I wonder.
We’ve been told that our minds make our world from time immemorial. It’s time for us to start understanding the power we possess to shift the inertia of history and of our lives.
“Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.” -Bhagavad Gita
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: we are formed and molded by our thoughts.” -Dhammapada
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so shall he be.” -Proverbs 23:7
“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” -James Allen
“We become what we think about most of the time.” -Earl Nightingale
“What you think about, you bring about.” -Bob Proctor
“If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, you’re right.” -Mary Kay Ash
You can choose to believe all these sources are wrong or you can get used to the idea that what you need to succeed does and always has resided within you.
The average water well is 100 to 500 feet deep. As you walk around on the earth’s surface, you can’t see the well water. You could dig 100 thirty-foot holes and not reach one drop of water.
This might frustrate you because digging 100 such holes without return is a lot of work for nothing.
Are you digging shallow wells in your life? Are you spreading yourself so thin that you can’t give any one “well” the time and effort required to get your “well water?”
Whatever your goals, ample time and effort spent on one or a few goals is like digging the well until you hit water. Having too many goals or responsibilities leaves your life pock marked with half dug wells. You might be frustrated because you’re putting in a ton of effort and not getting results.
Try to limit yourself to one to three big goals at a time. How many depends on the goals and how much time you have to devote to them.
Always be reassessing your goals to make sure you’re working on what’s most important. It’s OK to abandon half-dug wells to make room for more important priorities.
When you commit to a goal, dig it all the way until you hit the “well water.”
If the goal’s worth achieving, it’s worth going all the way.
