“Whether you say you can or can’t… you’re right.”
Have you ever heard that before?
The first time I heard it I thought “What on earth does that mean?”
But my knowing how powerful the mind is, I realized that THAT is what it was about. Our minds are so powerful. Things we say over and over again, in our minds, does indeed become What Is So.
So if you keep telling yourself you can…. then you can, You will OR at least you’ll give it 100%!
And…. If you keep telling yourself that you cannot…. Then you won’t. You’ll talk yourself out of it before you even attempt.
BUT…. YOU get to be right. Do you want to be right? Some people sell their souls to be right. It means more to them to be right than it does to be joyful or fulfilled or successful. Those “got-to-be-right” peeps… they’ll stay where they are, and maybe blame their upbringing or their lifestyle or their physical frailties. BUT all that… THAT’S a story. A story to stay complacent, stay stuck, stay period.
If you want to have something happen and you want to see what you’re made of and you want to believe in your heart that you can…. then do one thing. Just do one thing to work toward it. Say positive statements to yourself that will train your mind to know what it Can Do.
In the meantime…. Just do the next thing.
Your God Girl,
“Self-confidence is an essential quality for all worthwhile accomplishments.” – Napoleon Hill
If you don’t believe in yourself then how can you expect anyone else to believe in you? No matter what has happened, you must have Faith in your ability to accomplish whatever you want. Often it is easier to believe in other people, especially when things look dark and difficult–it is during these times that you MUST manufacture confidence in yourself and in your ability to create and take action. When I say, repeatedly, that nothing is impossible– I absolutely mean that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. The first step to making the seemingly impossible, possible is to have certainty and confidence that you have whatever it takes to move mountains. Most people do not succeed because they do not believe they can have or deserve success.
Enthusiasm goes hand-in-hand with self-confidence. Being self-confident and expressing enthusiasm about what you are doing naturally attracts support and goodwill. People want to be around people that are confident and happy because it makes them feel better about themselves.
When you are going through difficult times and starting to doubt yourself, call on the people that know you the best (your lifers) to remind you that you have what it takes to turn the tide. Their FAITH in you will give you something to stand on and it will help you remember who you are. From that renewed perspective you will be able to MOVE YOUR MOUNTAINS and produce results.
I have been studying Prosperity Principles since I was 12 years old and given the time of year I thought a quick lesson on generosity was in order. Yesterday I was telling you that St. John of the Cross says that “a generous heart will never go part way”. So today I thought we would continue to talk about what true generosity is…understanding generosity as a principle will help you realize that it isn’t just about buying things, it is about so much more than that…
When you practice generosity you understand that there is an endless supply of everything that is required and that if you give some of ‘yours’ away it will be given back to you. No lack was ever created by giving, poverty never stems from generosity. Anne Frank said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.”
Poverty and lack are stimulated by a belief that there is a limited supply and this belief helps people to be selfish and hold on to what is ‘theirs’. GOD bestowed upon us an unending supply of substance which is manifested by the spirit of generosity.
What if everything you ‘had’ wasn’t really yours anyway, what if God gave it to you so that you could be generous with it and when you did that He would give you more? If you understood that as a truth how much would it change the way you act in your daily life? If someone asked you for a ride or for five dollars and you knew that if you gave it to them then God would see it multiplied back to you… would you then be more willing to give it?
Practicing generosity requires us to understand that we have been blessed with ABUNDANT supply, available to us by simply asking the Divine to send it and then having certainty that it will come.
Nobody ever became poor from giving; people have become poor by living in fear that there is a limited supply of money, work, good etc. When our willingness to give dries up from fear then we actually BLOCK our Divine Supply from being able to reach us. Generosity and the practice of it help to keep the Divine pipeline moving in a positive direction. Be generous today with whatever you have to give…time, attention, money, actions…A generous heart is a happy heart. See you tomorrow…xoxoxo
