‘One thing I’ve learned:
my intentions are clear in terms of quality’
I focus on abundance
Your mind is a powerful force. It will produce for you whatever you focus it on. If you are constantly worrying about not having enough, then your mind will create even more scarcity. On the other hand, when you constantly think about abundance, and focus your thoughts on the gifts you already have and how you can make the best use of them, then your mind will help to create abundance for you. When you look at life as prosperous, it will be prosperous.
I make small, incremental improvements
Whatever is working for you, find a way to improve it just a little. There’s no need to make a huge, momentous change, just a small one, something you can do right now. Small improvements can add up over time into big accomplishments. Look around you. Consider the work you do each day. Think about how you could do it just a little bit better.
I push back
When life pushes you down, push back! That’s what you’re here for. You’re capable, you’re creative, you’re full of life and energy. You have what it takes to move yourself forward around any obstacle. Don’t let anything stop you. Take strength from meeting the challenges, and move ahead.
I have the power
You have power over your thoughts. You have power over your actions. You have power over the way you spend your time. You have power over your attitude. You have the power to decide what you find enjoyable, the power to set goals and to achieve them. You have an abundance of power. The better use you make of it, the more of it you’ll have.
accept what is
Find the good in everything that surrounds you. Nothing will ever make you happy, until you decide to be happy. Accept what is, and you have the ability to make it whatever you want. Nothing can make you happy, and yet you can make happiness from anything. Struggle and strife, laughter and fun, tears and smiles are all part of the same incredibly lavish symphony that is life.
I wake up rich
When you worry about what you don’t have, it is a waste of what you do have. You already have everything you need to be the person you are. Rather than worrying about what you don’t have, make the highest and best use of what you do have. It has been enough to bring you this far. The only thing stopping you from making the most of your life, is you. You already have what it takes. You can wake up rich and grow wealthier every day.
I live with richness
In this unique moment you have the chance to live with richness, meaning and fulfillment. Imagine the very best of what is possible, and then to make it happen. This is when you can give real, meaningful substance to your life. In this unique moment be true, be honest, be authentic, and be joyful. This is your day, your moment to live, so do it with passion and purpose and love.
I meet the challenges
There is some challenge you face right now which could move you forward in ways you cannot yet imagine. Look back at the challenges you’ve already overcome and you’ll see their immense value. Look back at the forward progress you’ve made and you’ll see all the challenges along the way which ultimately served to push you ahead. Acknowledge your challenges. Experience them. Resolve to overcome them and see what great things you can accomplish in the process.
I shine my light
If the world around you seems too hectic and frenzied, be extra calm, peaceful and patient. If the world around you seems too greedy and selfish, that’s the time to be extra loving, giving and sincerely compassionate. If the world around you seems too confused and aimless, be extra focused and purposeful. The world outside reflects back to you the energy you give it.
I do myself a big favor
You don’t have to ask or wish or hope for favors from others. You can do yourself a big favor today. Do yourself a big favor and live this day with purpose, intention, passion and relentless energy. You can do it, and you’ll feel amazing when you do.
I do more
Do more than merely getting through this day. Jump into it fully with vigor and enthusiasm. Do more than merely getting through your work. Find real joy in making a difference. Open your eyes, look around, and awaken to all the best possibilities. Now is when you can live with all the richness you’re able to imagine.
I let myself enjoy
Let yourself be. Let yourself enjoy. Let yourself see and participate, know and feel, listen and understand. Let go of the worries, the fears, the grievances, insecurities and inhibitions. Simply and lovingly live the beauty of this day. Let yourself be joyful, and generous with your joy, just because you can, and just because it feels so good.
I am one of a kind
There is no one else, anywhere, who has your own special combination of skills, interests, contacts, knowledge, values and experience. You’re the only one there is. You have no competition when it comes to being you. In this interconnected, de-centralized world it is more important than ever to be a unique individual. Let yourself be the person you are. That is the very best person you can be.
I choose my response
Nothing is inherently annoying, yet you can choose to be annoyed by just about anything. Similarly, no situation is inherently embarrassing, or stressful, or frustrating. Embarrassment, stress, and frustration are some of the many ways in which you can choose to respond. You always have the choice to respond in the best and most positive way. Each time you choose your own positive, creative, empowering response, whatever the situation may be, you move yourself and the whole world forward.
I will show up and do the work
What transforms a great idea into a great achievement? Mostly, it is plain old hard work. It doesn’t hurt to be clever or well connected, or to be in the right place at the right time. Yet what matters most to any success is simply showing up and doing the work. The most reliable way to success is to be reliable about putting forth the effort. In that plain old hard work you’ll find your very own path to fulfillment of the most satisfying kind.
I make it mine
Don’t wait for someone to give you permission to succeed and achieve. Get yourself busy and do it. Don’t wait for someone to tell you how to do it. Take it upon yourself to figure it out. Don’t wait for just the right situation. Don’t count on being lucky. Do what it takes to make your own good fortune. Learn from others. Seek the advice, input and feedback of those whose opinions you respect. But don’t depend on anyone or anything to do it for you.
I choose my direction
Decide where you will go, and then go there. When you live by intention, there is no limit to the rich rewards that life can bring. Give yourself a clear direction for this day, for this week, for this beautiful and unique life of yours. Give yourself a clear direction and you’ll have a workable path to your own special greatness.
I am making hope real
It’s good to hope for the best. Yet it’s infinitely more effective to put your thoughts, actions, commitment and genuine love into actually bringing about the best in life.
Hoping, wishing and dreaming can be very positive experiences. It is important to remember, though, that such experiences are just starting points. Go beyond hope, and put your life into making that hope real.
I love my way forward
Hurting someone else will never ease your own pain. Feeling sorry for yourself and sabotaging your own life won’t make anything better. The way beyond the pain is not with sarcasm, intimidation, revenge or violence. The only real way beyond the pain is with love. Forgive others, forgive yourself, forgive the past, and love your way forward.
I do some good
If you wish to feel good, do some good. Do some good, not for show, not for credit, not to get one up on anyone, but just because it is good and right. Even if no one ever knows about it except you, that’s enough. Do some good, just because you have the opportunity, just because you can.
The way to be strong is to care. The way to be informed is to care, and to do something about what you care about. The way to be competent, effective, persuasive, inspiring and successful is to care about what you’re doing. Life responds in a positive way when you take a real, authentic interest and invest yourself in it.
I cause change to work for me
To be alive is to be always changing and evolving. If you do not cause the changes to work for you, they will likely work against you. Standing still is simply not an option. Either you are growing, learning and improving or you are dying. Change will happen. You can be sure of it. So use it to your advantage. Welcome the changes, look for the positive possibilities in them, and they will move you steadily forward.
Allow this moment. Allow this day. Allow the good things in life to come to you. Make the effort, but don’t make it into a struggle. Let go of the need to fight against what is, and you will begin to allow the best of what is to be. Allow life to come in the exquisite, natural way that it will.
I give of myself
The best gift you can give is to give of yourself. Your time, your attention, your love and caring are far more valuable than anything that could be wrapped up in a brightly colored box. Give a little kindness, or patience, or understanding or love. Give encouragement, and attention, and assistance, and time. You always have what it takes to give of yourself. When you make the world a better place for others, you have the good fortune of living in that world too.
I move forward with new purpose
Christmas does not end when the gifts have all been opened and the feasting has been finished. The story of Christmas is a story of new birth, of promise, love and hope. This day is not an end, but a brilliant new beginning. This day is an opportunity to open your heart to the best of all possibilities. Today is a new beginning, an opportunity to move forward with renewed purpose. And that’s a gift you can always treasure.
I live life without limits
Limits are only for those who fear their own strength. Let go of your fear, let go of the limits, and discover how truly strong and effective you can be. Step outside the comfort of your self-imposed limitations. You have many good and worthy things to do, so put all your focus on making them happen. Live your life without limits. And fulfill the beautiful, unique purpose that is you.
I make the easy choice to be thankful
It’s easy and natural to complain when life is not meeting your expectations. What if it were just as easy, just as natural to be thankful and to see the good in whatever is going on? There is no good reason to deny yourself the power of gratitude. Make the easy choice to be thankful, and you’ll easily be thankful you did.
I make myself the best I can be
Make yourself make your life better. You know what you must do, so go ahead and get yourself to do it. You have power over your own thoughts and actions. Use that power to make a rich and fulfilling life for yourself. The quality of your life is determined by what you make yourself do. Make yourself into the person who is joyfully and successfully living your most treasured dreams. In every moment, choose to make yourself the best you can be.
my choices are up to me
Every moment, you make a choice. You are where you are because of the choices you have made in the past. The choices you make today will determine your future. With each choice you make, ask yourself, ‘Where will this choice lead? How will it affect my life tomorrow, next week, next month, 5 years from now?’ Your choices are up to you, and they will make all the difference in the world. Life is made of choices, not chances. Which choices are you making?
I transform my limitations
A limitation is nothing more than a situation you’ve chosen to consider as a limiting factor. The definition of a limitation is something that can stop you or hinder you. Something becomes a limitation because you assume it to be a limitation. But you can always choose to make a different assumption. Decide to focus on the positive possibilities, make use of them and move forward. Sure, life is tough, but you have what it takes. Remind yourself often of your own positive power, and transform every limitation into a reason to succeed.
time doesn’t matter to me
As quickly as the old times flow away from you, new times flow toward you. Each new moment brings even more possibilities than the moment that has just passed. Time flows on. And as it does, you can continue to fill your world with the best that life can be. Happy new year!
