Stop what you’re doing, and clear your mind.
What are you thinking right now?
What were you thinking right before you clicked on this?
What were you thinking about when you woke up this morning?
What do you think about throughout the day?
Our thoughts have great power. Thoughts can lift you up, or they can bring you down. And they can encourage you to be a mover and a shaker … or to stay stagnant and paralyzed, inactive.
With that in mind, think about this powerful idea: What we tell ourselves can change our lives.
Try to put that idea into perspective: As soon as you wake up, what do you think about?
Perhaps you’re one of those lucky people who are always filled with positive thoughts: “It’s going to be a beautiful day!”
But you may feel like all of us do from time to time, and you might be thinking, “Oh Lord, let me get through this day … I am not looking forward to this day … I cannot wait for this day to be over” the second you open your eyes.
If this describes how you view most of your days, let me get real with you: You are not giving the day a chance. If you are filled with dread the moment you are conscious, you have already put out dark energy for your day’s journey instead of sending out protective, loving light filled with possibility.
Why are you making it so hard for yourself?
I know, I know. It is not always easy, but as I always say, it doesn’t have to be hard.
The truth is, we have a choice about how we decide to think. We can think in whichever way we choose, no matter what anyone says to us and no matter what chaos is going on around us. We get to work with our thoughts for the better, and this means we can change our negative thoughts into positive thoughts.
You have the power to see yourself for who you really are instead of be the person your negative thoughts are trying to turn you into.
Negative thoughts can tell you lies.
“I can’t do this.”
“I am ugly.”
“I am not good enough.”
This day is going to be horrible.”
“I am not worthy.”
But positive thoughts can reveal who you truly are and support you as you shine your light into the world.
“I can do this.”
“I am beautiful.”
“I am great and have all the resources I need.”
“This is going to be a wonderful day filled with opportunities.”
“I am worthy.”
If changing the way you see your day scares you, or if you fear the possibility of disappointment, let me tell you, this shift in your thinking WILL change your life.
And changing your thinking is this: When you have a negative thought, at any point in your day, go in there and figure out how to flip that negative into a positive.
It might take some practice, and you might have to spend some time convincing your mind that these new happy thoughts are true, but just go with it! Everything new takes some time to get used to. Knock out those negative thoughts and tell yourself the truth of your greatness. Even if you don’t believe it at first, you will eventually grow into it. You ARE worthy!
Now let me ask you: Which negative thoughts are you going to wipe out today to boost you up and allow you to grow into the greatness you deserve? Which positive thoughts and affirmations will you fill yourself up with?

Wishing you the very best today and every day!
