‘All that counts in life
I am here to enjoy
It is natural to express your joys, to share your happiness with others. Watch how young children freely display their happiness and delight. As adults we have learned to be more guarded with expressing our emotions, even our positive ones. Give yourself permission to experience your joy whenever you feel it. Don’t feel uneasy showing. Joy isn’t selfish. It is self care!
my actions have purpose
A sense of purpose comes from the alignment of mind and spirit with the body. Know that you have a purpose. It is what drives you every day. There is substance in the things that you do. There is value in them. Your actions have impact.
I am content just as I am
Real contentment is the knowledge that at your core, all is well in your world. In this state, you are aware that you have everything you need right now to feel good about yourself, others, and life. True contentment is more than confidence, it is that feeling of inner fulfillment. Creating happiness begins with being content inside yourself. Allowing your life to unfold with this confidence that all is well, and all will be well no matter what.
I am living kindness
‘Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.’ ~Lao Tzu
Kindness is the gracious gesture of a loving heart. Genuine kindness can’t be faked or forced. It must come straight from your center of being. From the smallest random act of kindness to the biggest giveaways, everything is better when you share. When you reach out in kindness, you put into motion an energy that expands exponentially. The generous energy of love, connection, and joy. And that absolutely comes back, always. It is law.
life makes me smile and laugh
Laughter, it comes from the heart. Laughter is contagious. It is life power energy. Laughter is the most obvious sign of joy. It is also a powerful and instant way of spreading that joy all around you. Notice that feeling inside you, just before you laugh. That feeling is your source of happiness.
I am thankful for all I have
”Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say’ ~Alice Walker
Being thankful for the good things in your life powerfully contributes to a greater sense of happiness and wellbeing. Take the simple moments and show your appreciation or gratefulness for the many conveniences we take for granted such as running water, indoor plumbing, unpolluted drinking water, fresh air, a loving partner, a warm Summer day, or the laughter of children. Be gratitude. Live gratitude.
I am living with passion
Passion is the powerful, focused force of happiness directed to a specific interest in life. When we think of passion, we usually think about what we are passionate about, like opera, chocolate desserts, skiing or salsa dancing. But what about passion at a deeper level? Living passion in all areas of our life? Without passion, there is nothing. We need it to survive. We need it to live. And to love and to live some more. We breathe it. It runs through our veins. It is our vital energy.
I keep my brain sharp
The majority of people are stuck in ruts. They go to the same job everyday, hang out with the same friends and eat at the same places. That feels safe, but it’s not the most stimulating lifestyle for your brain. You need to be learning new things to keep your brain up to speed. Form new synapses by forcing your mind to work in ways it has not worked before. Just like physical workouts, doing too much of the same exercise will eventually give no results.
I make a good first impression
Practice a strong, firm handshake and the small talk that generally goes along with meeting someone for the first time. People won’t know what to think of you if you have nothing more to say beyond ‘My name is _______, nice to meet you.’ Also make sure you remember names. Who knows, you may be going into business with or marrying this person if you make a good impression. Be sure and make an excellent one!
I am radiating bliss
Let happiness radiate. Let your joy shine everywhere in the way an illuminated bulb radiates its light in all directions. Simply be who you are from your core self, and everything gets taken care of automatically. A flower doesn’t try to be beautiful and fragrant, it simply is what it is, and the rest follows in its natural course.
I am of service
‘How can I be of service? We are all here to share our unique gifts with the world. That is why we are here, that is the Source of the richest happiness we can experience, and when we share those gifts with love, effortlessly and joyfully, the world rises up to meet us. Inevitably we receive so much more than we give. Gandhi said it best, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” That, I know for sure, is one of the secrets of soul expanding happiness. Open yourself to giving from the heart, and listen to the ways of being of service.’ ~Oprah
I am a calming presence
‘We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil.’
Peace and serenity are born from a state of inner happiness. A trust and inner peace. In alignment with your true self you naturally radiate your serenity in your environment. Your are simultaneously expanding the happiness of yourself and those around you. To have that powerful transformative effect on others, your peace and serenity need to come from your inner being, not just a superficial mood or attitude. You need to be that peace you want to see happen. You need to be serenity. All is well. Line up with it!
my thoughts are loving and positive
A recipe for feeling good: start with loving and positive thoughts! Stop all criticism. Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to criticize yourself. And stop terrorizing yourself with your thoughts. Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself.
I live in THIS moment
Even 10 minutes ago is the past. If you live purely in THIS moment you will always be happy because there is nothing wrong in this split-second.
there are no limits to my imagination
We learn limitation by observing the physical world around us. We get advice like ‘Be realistic’ and ‘Be practical’ all the time. And since a young age we are taught about rules, regulations, and structure that keeps our mind from stretching into the world of fantasy and creation. The only place where there are absolutely no limitations is in your mind, because it’s not physical reality. Your ability to visualize is simply outrageous. If you want to visualize flying cars or underwater skateboards, you can. You can close your eyes in this very moment and imagine anything you want. Start dreaming again!
every breath gives me energy
Everything is energy. Breathing is energy. You are only as healthy as your cells. By supplying them with an ample supply of oxygen, their job of removing toxic wastes is a piece of cake. And there’s plenty of energy left over for you. Deep breathing gives you so much more physical energy that you won’t be able to sit around and moan. When you start breathing properly, you’ll have so much more energy. You’ll find the energy and stamina to complete your goals. You’ll find yourself jumping out of the bed in the morning, excited about life.
I know good is on its way
‘You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.’ ~Steve Jobs
my thoughts are completely on abundance
Much of society seems to be built on a scarcity mentality. It’s a mentality that tells us that there is a lack in life. That opportunities are few and far between. The scarcity mentality is quite painful and creates a lot of unnecessary fear, anxiety and desperation. An abundance mentality, on the other hand, tells you that there are always new chances and opportunities. This relieves much of the pressure and anxieties within your own mind. Focus on abundance, not on lack. What you focus on, you will see in your world.
I am constantly focused on good
Your mind is astonishingly powerful. Focus that power on the good things. Your thoughts create the way you experience life. Focus on what you want to grow in your life, not on what you want to avoid. Focus your thoughts on all that you love, respect, admire and treasure. Give positive power to each of your moments by giving positive focus to your thoughts.
I count my blessings
How often do you stop to count your blessings? In your daily struggle for more, how often do you feel joyful and thankful for the many, many things you already have? Did you know that you already have abundant wealth? Perhaps you don’t feel like it if you’ve just paid the bills, yet we all have an abundance that is almost beyond comprehension. Tap into that abundance by counting your blessings. Take stock of the things you have, the things you know, the people in your life, your spirituality, your skills, your opinions, your special perspective on life, your family, your hobbies, your sense of humor, your appreciation for beauty, your caring for others, your concern for those less fortunate, your ability to see opportunity. The list of possibilities is endless!
I celebrate me
Learning how to celebrate YOU can support you in having and living the life you want and love. Carve out time for yourself to treat you like a queen. Go out for an ice cream. Pick yourself some flowers or paint your toenails red.
I am getting in the habit
It is just as easy to get into a ‘good’ habit as it is to get into a ‘bad’ habit. That’s a little secret that successful people live by. In fact it is really just as easy to be successful as it is to be unsuccessful. It is just a matter of choice. You can spend your time doing the things that will bring you closer to your goals, or you can spend your time seeking immediate comfort and gratification.
I create wealth
You cannot ‘get’ rich, unless you are lucky enough to receive an inheritance or win the lottery. To create wealth, you must create value. One of the very best ways to create value is to solve problems. The world is full of opportunities to create value and wealth, and these opportunities come disguised as problems. Look around you. Opportunity is everywhere. There is plenty of abundant wealth just waiting to be created.
I take responsibility
Who or what controls your life? The achievers in this world believe that whatever happens to them, they are responsible for it. If you don’t believe that you are responsible for your own life, then you are under the control of circumstances. You are just an object in someone else’s world. That is not the way to success. When you are in control of your life, you succeed at getting where you want to go. And being in control means taking responsibility.
I am in control
This is an empowering concept when you truly believe it. You are in control of all your actions. You are in control of your attitude. No one else can make you depressed, or lonely or excited. You are in control of your body. You can eat that chocolate cake… or not. You are in control of your relationships. No one can make you feel hurt unless you let them. You are in control of your fears. You are in control of your time. You can choose to make the most of every single minute. And most important: you are in control of your own mind. You decide what to think about things and how to react to different situations.
I expect the best
Expect the best from life and you’ll generally get it. Your expectations play a key role in the reality of your life. Your mind is a powerful goal-seeking device. When you point it in the right direction, with positive expectations, it will do whatever is necessary to get you where you want to go. The more consistently you keep your mind on your positive expectations, the faster they will become a reality.
I act with assurance, confidence and grace
Confidence is a tricky, tricky little thing. Feeling good about yourself is so easy to put at the will of others when it should only be up to you. Your identity is something that you can create. Every single day. You are driving this self-assurance train and it’s ready to depart from the station. Here we go!
I am a new me
If you’re stuck, you don’t have to be. If you’re weary, disappointed or unmotivated, you don’t have to be. You can change, and you can make that change for the better. You can transform your thoughts, your perspective, your direction, your possibilities and your life. Every moment, a new you is born. You can simply let the new you be just like the old you, or you can choose to make improvements.
I am ready for opportunity
Every day presents new opportunities In the vast majority of cases, these opportunities are wasted. They fly right on by, never acted upon. Those few people who achieve greatness are the ones who are prepared for the opportunities that come their way. That attitude comes, not from having education or having money or having a lot of contacts, but from a confident belief in yourself, a mind that is open to new possibilities and a willingness to do whatever it takes to make something happen. Without the right attitude, without the willingness and confidence to dive right in, opportunities will pass you by, one after another…
I am what I think
Everything you are is determined by your thoughts. All the past experiences you have had up to this point in your life exist in your thoughts. Your entire future from this point on exists only in your thoughts. You are more thought than you are physical substance. Your thoughts are what define you. Your thoughts are what allow you to relate to the world and to the other people in it. Your thoughts are what control every aspect of your life.
Pssst… Hey you! Want success? Let me tell you all the secrets! There are only seven…
