Powerful Words


Happy Friday!  This week I learned just how powerful words can be and the impact that they can have on your day.

I EXPECTED the week to start of great, I mean it was my birthday, right?  I had visions of what other people would do to make my day special.  Instead of focusing on me, I spent the day supporting hubby and taking my MIL for an outpatient procedure.  The day was shot.  Hubby and my MIL was grateful.  I knew it was the right thing to do.  As I reflect, I am glad that I did because hubby had a rough day health wise. Blessed with birthday wishes from near and far, it wasn’t what I expected and the end result was that I spoke into existence “just another day”.

As I woke up the next morning, I realized that I had missed all of the blessings along the way.  My attention was focused on what I didn’t have versus what I had and so it became “just another day”.  There is power in words and once you speak of something and send it out into the Universe it becomes true whether it is negative or positive.  No, I am not on a pity pot.  No, I am not looking for sympathy.  It is an AHA moment that may help someone else who is feeling a little down because things didn’t go quite the way they planned.

My week got better because my words got better which changed my vision.  Take a few minutes to write down 4 or 5 things that you want, be very specific about what you want and why you want these things.  I am going to be VERY transparent here with my “wants”:

  • I want to enjoy my life looking at the positives instead of letting the negatives effect my relationships.  This will make me happier and my marriage stronger.
  • I want to build relationships with my existing and potential customers, hostesses, and team.  This will allow me to help others while growing my business.
  • I want to learn how to manage my money so that I be debt free from credit card debt.  This why is a little harder for me.  I just know that I need to be a better steward of my money and I am tired of being in debt.
  • I want to maintain my goal weight.  I know in my head that this is for improved health, to eliminate the aches and pains that I have and to live a long life.  BUT I haven’t found an emotional connection to why I want to do this.  I know I should.  I know I like the compliments even though I feel that I don’t deserve them.

Look at all the areas of your life, career, relationships, health, and wellness.  What are your wants?  Are they tangible wants?  Do you feel a tug on your heart when you put those wants on paper?

It is time to take action.  Choose one of the things that you want and create a powerful mantra around this goal. Then say it out loud at least twice a day in the morning and at night. You will continue to say this until you feel it, know it and until it shows up!  Not sure how to create a mantra that is YOUR own?  Start off your mantra with the words “I AM” or “I WILL”.  Here is mine:

I WILL focus on the positives being thankful for each moment.

What is your mantra for today?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
