I’m Getting Old Affirmation

At 57, there are definitely moments and situations where I definitely don’t feel 25 anymore.

My wife and I have caught ourselves repeating the negative affirmation to each other, “I’m getting old.” We’ve pinky sworn we’re not going to let each other use that affirmation anymore.

Yes! We are all constantly using affirmations, consciously and unconsciously. Our minds are born affirmation machines. Some are positive and some are negative. This is definitely a negative one I don’t want to buy into.

Anything that starts with IAM/AM NOT or I CAN/CANNOT or I WILL/WON’T is an affirmation. One that we think or say all the time becomes habitual thinking that begins impact our outcomes in life.

These are all habitual affirmations that can quickly become self-fulfilling prophecies.

  • I am too old.
  • I am too young.
  • I am not smart enough.
  • I am always sick.
  • I can’t do that.
  • I will never make money. I will always be poor.
  • I am born to fail.

These are the kinds of negative affirmations our minds or other people plant in our thinking. They can become our way of being, if w3 allow it.

Positive affirmations are a way to consciously replace these unconscious negative affirmations.

So, I am proactively adding this affirmation to my daily affirmations.


Choose the thoughts you think and believe carefully. They will soon become you.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!


Monday is One-Seventh of My Life


Monday is one-seventh of my life and I always make the most of it!

It’s tempting to cruise through or even lose Monday! Many of us do jobs we don’t really enjoy. We want to hang in a little longer to the joys of the weekend. It’s totally understandable.

Yet, we are confronted with an undeniable fact. Monday is one-seventh of our lives. We’re fools to waste it in thinking that wishes it wasn’t here.

Here’s a thought, if you’re in business or sales or just want to get a jump on those who waste Monday. Use it as a competitive advantage. If you make successful, productive Mondays a focus, you’ll be ahead of competitors who spend the day just trying to get to Tuesday.

Monday can, thought about in a different way, become secret weapon in your happiness and success.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember that you’re amazing!

Take care until next time.


5 Motivational RayQuotes for Your Saturday Morning

Good Saturday, dear reader. There’s no bigger myth out there than that we don’t have choices about how to see and interact with the world around us.

We most certainly do. These quotes may seem diverse, but they share this in common. They remind us to see the world through compassionate and inclusive eyes and ourselves as positive vehicles of change,

Working together, we can create a better world for ourselves and everyone else.

Have a beautiful Saturday!


Love Thy Neighbor

There is no ethical or moral code that ignores this basic principle. So many of the ills afflicting our minds and our society could be greatly mitigated by doing this one thing.

Certainly, there are many on the planet who believe this to be much harder than it actually is. They’ve seen the ugliness people are capable of up close. For many, their protection mechanism has become to blame the whole species.

There are a couple of simple mind shifts that can get us back on a more productive track.

  1. Stop blaming humanity for the faults of some humans. There are literally billions of good people out there trying to make their way in this crazy world just like you. Shift your focus to that fact.
  2. See people as individuals and each situation as unique. We have a tendency to generalize and categorize our way to a point where we don’t trust anyone or anything. Renew your commitment to see each person for the unique individual they are rather than grouping them into a label. See each situation as unique. The fact that you’ve been hurt in say a relationship, doesn’t mean that the best relationship you can imagine isn’t out there for you.

Love your neighbor. Give them the same chance you want and deserve. People will surprise you and you’ll find more joy and happiness in your interactions with others.

You know you’re amazing! Just reminding you.


Powerful Acceptance Affirmation

I know there’s pain, but there’s also ecstasy. I know there’s setback, but there’s also triumph.

The wise, enlightened, courageous soul has a heart ready to face and embrace it all.

As hard as it is for us to understand sometimes, there’s a whole other level of consciousness where we understand, accept, and even choose every experience.

Why not get on board with that right here and find peace in it right now?

Never forget how awesome you are!
