I AM a writer. And publishing will come in God's timing. I just have to have something ready when an editor wants it!
The Great I AM
Words have enormous power. Just speak them and they set off a chain reaction in your body that creates a reality based on what you said. That’s why it’s important that you’re telling yourself the right thing.
What is it that you want to accomplish in life? What is your dream? To be a dancer? To publish that best-selling novel? What about finding the cure for cancer? No matter what noble quest you have in your heart, one of the key strategies to success is speaking it.
Whatever it is that you are working towards becoming, tell yourself “I AM that”. Want to lose weight? Don’t say, “I hope I’ll be able to slim down.” Instead proclaim, “I AM on a plan to live healthy and change my weight.”
That’s precisely why athletes say they are a champion. And you thought it was because they were arrogant? Well, for some, perhaps, but most of the time it is to get their body and mind in line with their dream of being a champion.
When you say, “I AM”, you release the creative juices that put you in the best posture to reach your goal successfully. I’m not suggesting a name it and claim it or blab it and grab it mentality. No matter how many times I say, “I AM 25 years old”, it ain’t gonna happen. Likewise, I can say, “I AM the world’s champion at the Ironman Triathlon” and I’ll not be, mainly because I’m not going to go swimming in the ocean.
And the great news? You are in total, complete, 100% control over what comes out of your mouth. Your words are yours and yours alone. You can speak positive things into your life or sabotage your dream.
No matter what others say, regardless of the current circumstances, you can change your life by speaking powerful words into them. Watch what you say. It really does matter!
Today’s challenge:listen to what you say today about yourself, your dream and your future and determine if it’s creating positive energy or depleting it. Write it in a journal, along with positive affirmations you could replace it with.
