Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have it all?

I’ll tell you why.

It’s because they BELIEVE that they can have it all, and they believe they deserve it.

Ever wondered why you can’t get anything right? Well, here it is folks: it’s because you don’t believe you can.

Mary Kay Ash said, “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.”

My message to you today is simple.

The power you seek to change your life is in your hands.

All you have to do is use it. The really cool part is that it’s so easy–just believe in yourself. Stop doubting yourself, and watch your thoughts.

When you notice negative thoughts, just say to yourself, “I’m now canceling this negative thought and replacing it with this more positive affirmation of my true desires.”

In fact, you don’t even need to be that formal about it–but reciting something to that effect in your head is a great way to distract yourself from the negativity you’re dealing with, and then it’s important that you actually follow through and replace the thought with a positive one.

For example, let’s say you are calling a creditor to explain why your payment will be late.

Before you call, you might worry and tell yourself that they won’t understand and that they’ll be rude or nasty to you.

When you make that call, you find that your fears come true. And here’s the interesting part…it came true because you believed it would.

Next time a situation like that presents itself, take a moment before you deal with it to get focused and calm. Try taking ten deep breaths in, blowing each one out fully before taking in the next.

Visualize yourself being clearly understood and empathized with by the person.

Visualize the situation working out to your best advantage, and really know it.

Tell yourself things will work out in your favor, and really believe it.

Then, pick up the phone and have that conversation.

I’ll bet you have a different outcome this time.

Bottom line: If you can believe it, you can achieve it. It’s a fact.

Learn it, live it, love it!

Do you believe that you can achieve anything?

  1. Great post and exactly right.

    It can be hard to catch yourself entertaining a negative mindset but once you realize where your thoughts are taking you, it is so empowering to simply change your mind.

    I also am becoming aware of when my mind is occupied with something fun like my painting or my ukulele that presto chango…I am not worried anymore.

    I love what Louise Hay says…

    “Stop terrifying yourself.” It is your own thoughts that are upsetting you so cut it out!!
