“I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest.” – Muhammad Ali
What are you saying about yourself? The Book of Proverbs says ‘Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.’ Whatever is truly in your heart will eventually come out in thought, words, and actions. When it comes to being TRUE to you, you have to begin to speak the best about you, not the worst. If all you’ve heard is the worst then it’s time to start retraining your mind to visualize and see the best and your mouth to speak the best. If you think it and say it enough, not only will the world start believing it, so will you. Henry Ford said ‘whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.’ So again I ask, what are you saying and think about yourself? Take a few moments to think about it. What comes to mind? Good thoughts, great thoughts, bad or ‘so-so’ thoughts. It is said that ‘As a man thinks, so is he.’ What you think about ultimately becomes what you say, do and become. If you are struggling with the thoughts you think about yourself and want to transition from being true to others to being true to you (the REAL essence of who you were created to be), then as your Life Transition Coach, I’d love to help you along this journey. It is said that ‘many people are born originals but most die copies.’ Being true to you is all about living and dying as the original you were created to be. Now before you begin this process, remember that everyone won’t be as excited as you when you finally come from under or behind their shadow, but that’s ok. This isn’t about them, it’s about YOU! Don’t worry about the extra baggage that you shed as a result of this journey, it was never meant to stay connected to you anyway.
My Challenge to you:
1. Get a coach who can be the catalyst you need to push you into purpose. I’d love to be your choice.
2. Make a decision to begin shedding that extra baggage that keeps you from sharing your TRUE greatness with the world.
3. BELIEVE that you are great and that your were born to be an original, NOT someone else’s copy or imitation. It all starts in the mind and then through the words you speak. If you say it enough, not only will the world be convinced, so will YOU!
Until next time…
