For me, the best time to do this is in the mornings before I leave the house. Perhaps you can tape these to your mirror and say them while you are getting ready for the day. Or, you may want to put them by your door to stop and say right before you leave your house. Whatever you do - I really want to encourage you to DO these each and every day.
#2: I AM ABLE to Accomplish GREAT Things!
"Great things" can mean a lot of different things and I'd like to touch on that first. First of all, let's talk about what it DOESN'T have to mean, o.k.?
If you DON'T become President of the United States, it doesn't mean that you have not accomplished great things in your life. If you DON'T find the cure for cancer, it doesn't mean that you have not accomplished great things in your life.
See what I mean?
Sometimes when we consider "great things" we tend to think of things that would make us famous and known world-wide. That's not necessarily the case!
Now, are these GREAT things to accomplish? Absolutely! If you set out to do such things with your life - GO FOR IT and give it all you have!
However, let's not miss the fact that there are MANY things we can do with/in our lives that can be considered "great" that no one may ever even know about.
One of the things that I mention in today's podcast is a situation where a single mother is working hard at one, two and maybe even three jobs just to try to provide for her child or children. This mother may not consider the fact that she is providing a home and food and clothing for her children a great thing - but it is!
Parent's who love their children and always make sure that their children KNOW that they are loved are, also, doing GREAT things!
See what I mean? Let's not overlook some of the so-called "simple" things that can also be great!
What ARE your goals and plans? What HAVE you been working towards in your life? What are your DREAMS and what are you doing to enable yourself to REACH those goals, plans and dreams?
Whatever it is - or whatever they are - you DO have the ability to accomplish GREAT things! And, yes, this DOES also mean that you have the ability to accomplish things in your life that you and probably others would think is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for you to do!
Yet, when you take into consideration what we looked at yesterday in our first affirmation ("I am somebody special!") and combine that with today's affirmation then you can KNOW that you can, indeed, ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS!
You ARE special and you have been given the ability to accomplish things beyond your comprehension!
When you combine the miraculous wonder that God made you to be (your mind and body) with all of the assets available for each of us to use today (the internet, for example) then you end up with an UNBELIEVABLE and POWERFUL FORCE!
WOW! Just really take a moment and consider that!
You CAN because you ARE!
You CAN accomplish great things because you ARE somebody special!
It's true. Whether you feel this or not, say it anyway each day. Out loud. You will be amazed at what happens over time to your belief system as your subconscious mind begins to take this as a fact and repeat it to you as such.
Remember - you CAN because you ARE!
And, as always...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
