We’re fairly new into the New Year.
“I want to see change. This year is going to be different.”
You have 2 choices: fall back into the same old patterns of the previous years or put forth actions to create change. Dust off those list of goals. Don’t let setbacks kill your motivation. Don’t stay down, again. You have a chance to show yourself love. Don’t you dare QUIT, now!
You have this moment right now, to decide. Pack away those fears, doubts, and worries. Put on your confidence. Shred those negative thoughts before they get a chance to manifest. Stop throwing yourself under the bus. Get up and go!
How you see yourself will determine your future. Don’t give up because it’s hard. Anything worth having is worth the hard work. Disengage from defeat. You have the DNA of strength coursing through your veins.
If I ask you to create a list describing yourself, one of 2 things would probably happen. The list would be empty or you’ll write about everything you hate about yourself. Your inner monologue needs a new script. Most times, we don’t see how great we are. Our identity is distorted by the wrong messages playing in our minds.
List all all your good qualities. What do you like about yourself? What can you do that you notice no one else can do? This can take time, because we would need to ignore the negative voices (insecurities). This list is very important. It will be your source of strength.
Put the list up on a wall where you will notice it instantly. For example, bathroom mirror, refrigerator, in your car, etc. Start each day reading about your greatness.
Take this challenge to the next level. Invite a friend to create a list about you. Think of someone you love (value greatly) and have them create a list of their favorite elements about you. (Remember, they have to be someone you trust. And someone who truly has supported and encouraged you through life. One who has seen you fall but helped you get back up and encouraged you to keep going). If they mentioned something that isn’t on your list, add it. Sometimes people who love you, can see things you didn’t notice. We see the reflection of our character trait as flawed. Others will see those traits as unique abilities which they’d like to see you develop.
Hard to believe there are genuine people who want to see you succeed. Rather than see you fail or keep you underneath them. I’d like to call them “The healer vs. The hurter” (🤔 this could be a post I could write about. What do you think? Comment below.) Don’t minimize yourself to fit into people insecurities. Stand confidently even when others turn their back on you. Keep your determination even if you feel defeated. Get use to the new you. New You starts with showing up. New You starts inside. Believe. I can’t wait to see what happens. God bless!
