Two words change everything. You have the power to create the life you want, or destroy it. The flower growing through the crack in the sidewalk doesn’t “know” it isn’t “supposed” to be growing there. It only “knows” it is a flower and it is supposed to grow. The flower knows the power of the two words: I Am.
What you believe about yourself manifests in your life. Finish this statement, I am…. How often do you fill in that blank with powerful, positive statements? How often do you fill it in with negative, self-doubting ones. If are you like most people, you often fill it in with negative thoughts. “I am fat.” “I am not smart enough.” “I am unworthy to be loved.”
The words we choose to use in our thoughts and our speaking create our reality. Learn how to harness the power of a postive “I Am” statement and you have learned one of the most amazing tools you’ll ever posses.
One way to change your “I Am” statement to one that is more powerful is to get a piece of lined paper and write down on the left side I AM on every line. Go back and write what you think you are. Every line should have a different thought. It might look something like this:
- I am not smart enough
- I am a good wife
- I am creative
- I am scared
You get the idea. Write your negative and positive “I am” statements. Then go back and hightlight the positive ones. Write them down on another piece of paper and post them in a place where you can see them every day. Hold them in your heart. Practice living out your positive “I Am” Statements.
When you tap into the power of your positive “I Am” statements, amazing things happen in your life. You become more open and loving to the people around you. You attract more friends. You have a more positive influence on your daughter.
Next time you hear yourself putting yourself down, do your best to find a way to turn your negative beliefs about yourself into positive ones. The more positive “I Am” statements you have, the more luscious your life becomes.
