Time moves slow sometimes even when we think it’s a sprint.  Greatness doesn’t happen over night and the world has a way of reminding us that, that which is worth pursuing is worth the wait.  

Being the queen of wanting immediate gratification doesn’t always lead to the open door.  Consistent planning, persistence and patience makes you question the path sometimes.  But everything we pursue deserves all the time, effort and determination we can muster.

Feeling a little scattered and unmotivated happens.  Keeping things in perspective is necessary for perseverance.  Sometimes it’s just time to rest.  Sometimes our bodies tell us we need to slow down.

Quiet reflection is an opportunity to take a moment to remember who we are and why we are here. Obstacles make us stronger. For every no we are closer to that yes. For every misstep there is a lesson to be learned. Some things are just out of our control.  But thoughts really do become things so we have to just keep reminding ourselves that it is up to us say yes and the yes’s will follow.

Let’s choose yes. Let’s speak in the first person and speak with intention. Let’s make these statements emphatically and lets keep saying them over and over until they become a part of us. Isn’t our own encouragement worth a few minutes of the day? The time is now. Let’s say this loud and clear.

“I believe in me.  I know implicitly, that I have a realm of possibilities at my disposal and I know utterly and completely that I am capable of so much.  I set my goals high and I follow through with conviction. I am here to serve and I lead by example. I owe it to myself to live up to my true potential.  I know that I hold the secret to my own success.  It is my turn to shine.  I am very deserving.  I can afford it and I accept all the riches that life has to offer.  I welcome and accept the beauty of life.  I trust and therefore attract and accept trustworthy people in my life.  I let go wholeheartedly of my limiting beliefs.  I release them.  I am brave and courageous and willing and able. I embrace my opportunities with the respect they deserve.  I am beautiful and I am loved.”
