Do you find that what you say to yourself turns out to be true?
Why is this? Why you are supported by your life with your own negatives?
You see your brain is like a computer that you feed each day. It doesn’t know always know what’s real or not unless you tell it.
Example (It can be taken in two different ways): If someone you love has hurt you, you may tell yourself that all people who love you will probably hurt you too.
Your brain just files this information for reference, it’s data, little zeroes and ones and no column that asks “true or not true?” Now your brain thinks, based on what you told it, that everyone you’ll ever love will hurt you.
How do you think you will respond the next time you get hurt?
Now, what if we instead told our brain:
“Okay this person ripped my heart out – but that’s only one person. I’m lovable and have many loving people in my life who are not out to hurt me. I know that the right people are coming into my life all the time. If someone hurts me, I will forgive them and bless them on their way.”
One more very common example known among us is, What you say “Half filled glass with water” or ” half empty glass”?
Words can be empowering.
“I can”, “I love to”, “I want to”, “I will”, “I must”, “I am”
We can reach a new level of living, if we feed ourselves empowering words and practice saying them until they become a habit.
I know first hand that it takes time.And I also know that it’s worth it.
Try it, try it till it becomes your habit. Please do not say again, ” I can’t”.
Catch yourself saying, “I can’t”, when you don’t really mean it and instead try, “I can”, and see how you think and feel about yourself.
Remember, the words you use to empower yourself will have a lasting effect, only if you practice them and they become a habit.
Be proactive and not reactive – give yourself some good words.
Dream big and empower yourself! Believe you can and you will.
