Embrace Your Strengths
“You have power over your mind―not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” ―Marcus Aurelius
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
An authentically happy, self-loving you and your calm mindset are the most important goals of your life! Because you create everything in your life based on how you feel, you need to make sure that you feel consistently good if you want to create what you desire. So, count your blessings, including your very own gifts and talents. Acknowledge and embrace your strengths. Then, go out and share them. Use them to the best of your ability for good in your world by being the best version of you that you can possibly be!
We are always learning and growing in our potential to be our greatest selves. Sometimes we just need a little help reminding ourselves that we are doing well. We need some positive reinforcement to help us recognize the progress that we are making. Do you recognize the changes that you are making? Are you aware of the improvements you have made in yourself? Are you giving yourself credit for staying the course? Do you stop and praise yourself when you achieve even a small step along the way? Are you grateful for your advancement and growth each day? In other words, do you use only loving and kind words with yourself about the progress you are making? If not, begin today to treat yourself differently.
Why is this SOOO important?
Your thoughts and words are very powerful, especially when you are directing them toward yourself. Because you are creating your world, you have to, first and foremost, speak only loving and kind words to you. Every time you say something to yourself, you must stop and think about what you are saying. Be sure it makes you feel good.
Positive reinforcement has been proven in many studies to work wonders in personal and professional relationships, and it’s even more important to the relationship we have with ourselves. If we are to shine our brightest light outward for everyone to feel, IT IS GOOD to acknowledge our strengths.
And most importantly, as you learn, acknowledge, and deepen this very important information about yourself and who you really are, you will become more and more aware of the positive power of your calm mind. This is the greatest gift that we have been given. To make it ours, we must become patient with ourselves as we learn to apply it to every area of our life. You must become the most loving and caring person towards you, because what you say to yourself is shaping your mindset.
How do you go about this?
See the greatness in yourself. As you begin to feel empowered, you will naturally expect great things that you want to come about more easily. You will see them. Know that you deserve to have whatever it is that you truly desire for yourself and others. Stay patient in your view of yourself and your greatness. As you do, wonderful things will happen: Money will flow more easily for you, your relationships will improve, you’ll find your perfect health again, your purpose that feeds your soul, and that wonderful job that you’ve always wanted. Remember, you deserve great things! You deserve to be abundantly happy! Knowing this is crucial. If you have trouble accepting this, it's time to change how you see and speak to yourself now.
So, if your thoughts and words about you just don’t seem to cooperate, try again. Remind yourself that you have this opportunity in front of you to shift yet again into a better feeling place. We all need to understand that we are learning, and as we apply what we have learned, we will get better results the next time around. As we apply the knowledge that we are learning, we become wiser and we realize that it just takes repetition and practice with our thoughts, words, and actions. It just takes being consistent. And it takes positive reinforcement.
Even if you feel your talents and gifts need refining, these are your strengths. The more you bless and appreciate your strengths, the stronger they will grow in feeling good about yourself and your world. And the better you feel, the more you will create the outcomes that you desire.
So, view yourself and others only with great love, and your gifts will grow more quickly than you can imagine. Be grateful for all that you already have…and be sure to have lots of fun along the way.
This is the way to using the greatest gift that we have ever been given, the power of our mind!
Have an absolutely magical day full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, fun!
