“I am!” are the two most empowering words in the English language.
Not “I will” eat better. Not “I try” to exercise. Not “I can” lose weight. Not “I wish” I had more energy.
Not “I should” eat more fruits and vegetables. Not “I could” live without meat and cheese (if it weren’t for my meat-lovin’, cheese-lovin’ man.) Not “I would” drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices (if I only had the time).
Not “I want” to feel better about myself.
Let’s make a life-changing shift. Game?
1. Be aware of that head chatter. Notice every time I will, I try, I can, I wish, I should, I could, I would, or I want pops into your brain. You’ll be shocked by the chatter clutter.
2. Consciously change that I will, I try, I can, I wish, I should, I could, I would, or I want to the two most self-empowering words:
I am filling up on fresh fruits in the morning.
I am eating and enjoying a 10-veggie salad every lunch.
I am centering dinners on veggie salads and vegetables, a shift from meat-, dairy-, pasta-centered meals.
I am drinking homemade fresh fruit and vegetable juices, which zip to my cells with pure nutrients and energize me within 30 minutes.
I am exercising every day, doing something!
I am getting down to my ideal weight.
I am taking self-responsibility for my body, health, and life.
I am feeling better than ever.
I am feeling better than ever about myself.
I am confident, strong, fit, energized, creative, happy, present, and blissfully peaceful inside.
I am being exactly who I was born to be and doing exactly what I came here to do.
I am loving myself and others.
I am expressing my love of myself and others through my Thoughts, Words, and Actions.
And . . . I am permanently deleting from my brain the two most dis-empowering words in the English language:
“I. C.A.N.’T.” stands for “I Could’ of And Never Tried.” Never tried hard enough and long enough with crystal clear intentions and that “do it or die” determination.
3. Write down a list of your own “I ams,” starting with “I am [insert your name].”
Ahhhhh . . . you gotta love the sound of those three little words. “I am [insert your name].”
As you re-program your mind with “I ams,” you will become more and more awed by Who You Are and All That You Are Capable Of!
