I’m not kidding!!
You get home from work and your dog runs to the door. The next thing you do is put your belongings down and pet your dog with a huge smile on your face. You feel the warmth and your dog's tail is rapidly wagging back and forth!
The next thing you say is “Who’s the cutest, bestest, most gorgeous, happiest puppy ever??” I am sure there is a common phrase you use when speaking to your dog. There are more smiles, tail wagging, there is a warm feeling in the room…
Okay now, let’s turn this scene around. What if you speak to yourself as you speak to your dog or even cat?
The way you speak to yourself matters! Your mind is so powerful and your body will react to everything you are thinking! Over time your thoughts will become a habit. It is human nature to easily adapt to a repetitive act or thought process. Those habits will have an impact on our decisions and our decisions will have an impact on our life experiences.
If you say “I am a failure” you will think you are a failure. This will impact your emotions. You will eventually believe you are a failure… This is not the ideal situation, is it?
When you say this to yourself you will eventually try to find evidence that reinforces this belief. You will view each mistake as proof to yourself that you are “not good enough.” When you succeed at something you will view it as good luck when that wasn’t truly the case.
So what if you turn that around and say to yourself “I am accomplished, I am amazing, I am beautiful, I am smart!” You will feel and believe you are accomplished, beautiful, and smart! These thoughts will impact your decisions and it will have a positive impact on your life experiences!
Try it today and in no time you will see your life turn around for the best!
Always be in control of your thoughts and never put yourself down! NEVER!! You don’t deserve it!
You are an amazing person! You know it and you should always remember to tell yourself that! Never limit your potential. You are more than capable of accomplishing so much!
Because you are the “cutest, bestest girl/boy in the whole world aren’t you?!”
