Beginning Your Day
I will work on myself,
I will work on my issues, concerns hurts and pains.
I will, with support and assistance, put forth the effort to become a better person.
I will welcome growth within myself by acknowledging that I am becoming better today, each day, everyday, one day at a time.
Begin your day with gratitude and appreciation for your life and your health. Become thankful for your body and for all of your abilities that come from it. Become thankful for your sight, your hearing, your senses of touch, taste, smell. Allow yourself to become thankful for your internal organs and system that functions within the body system. Become thankful that all of the systems of the body are functioning properly. Think and feel and know that YOU are in perfect health. Become thankful for the experience of yet another day and for waking with a sound mind. Sit quietly for just a few moments and allow yourself to become peaceful and relaxed.
Begin today with forgiveness. Begin by forgiving yourself and others. Take this moment to begin your day renewed and refreshed. Think and feel that YOU are beginning a new day with a clean slate. Begin your day by releasing all of the anger, frustration, disappointment, hurt, pain and grudges from the past. Begin your day with forgiving yourself for all of your past mistakes, negative actions, bad choices and decisions. It is important to remember that each experience within life is a tool designed specifically for YOU to learn, grow and develop from.
The Process of Empowerment:
The process of Empowerment is personal development. Personal development within the concept is effort put forth to simply work on and develop YOU. Earlier we defined YOU as the nature, character or unseen identity of the person or individual within. To be clear we are beginning the process of Empowering YOU to work on your nature character and unseen parts within. Personal development is not about your clothing, jewelry, shoes, cars, houses or anything outside of YOU. It is about YOU and your abilities, talents gifts and strengths. It is getting to know YOU the real authentic YOU. The fact is, we all know and understand ourselves, it is only when we become completely honest and transparent that it becomes clear to us. We all know our likes, dislikes, styles and even our pet eves. Each of us spends 100 % of our time with ourselves; this fact alone would lead me to believe that no one knows YOU better that YOU. With that fact stated where does the process begin? The process of personal development begins and ends with YOU. To start this process YOU have to become ready to begin and determined to finish the work that is necessary to develop and change YOU. If YOU are reading this, then that would suggest that YOU are ready! If your world is to become a better place, YOU will have to change and if the world is to become a better place YOU will have to change it. What better place to start change in the world than with YOU. Each day within the process of personal development YOU will begin to examine the programs and patterns of thought that YOU have formed during from your experiences. Imagine for a moment, the many patterns of thought, action and behavior that YOU have learned to develop from the time that YOU were born. Your parents and others instilled thoughts and beliefs within YOU that now actively function within. Begin for a moment to think of all the images and behaviors that YOU model that are not your own. From the beginning, YOU learned as child to mimic and copy what YOU saw others do and say. Many of us believed everything that we were told or that we saw/heard on television and never questioned the validity of it for a moment. The clearest example that I can give YOU is of belief of the world itself. At a point in time, it was a belief that the world was flat. Many people lived their entire lives believing that this was the truth. This “truth” was passed down to them by what was seen and or by someone whom they believed knew exactly what they were talking about or had expert knowledge of. Today, we all know the “truth” is that the world is round and not flat. The goal here is to provide YOU with the tools of personal development, so that YOU may begin to put forth the effort to develop the true authentic YOU. To begin YOU will need to sit quietly and begin to evaluate the area or areas with your life (actions, behaviors, ways, attitudes, activities, relationships and etc.) that YOU need to work on and begin the process of change and personal development or growth. Many of YOU are experiencing problems in areas within your life not because of others, but because of YOU and the ways in which YOU have learned to think and behave. Lastly, it is a fact that your thoughts become your actions. It is important to begin to understand to power of thought and how it impacts your life. In many cases, the way YOU feel, your health, actions, attitudes, lack of self control or self discipline and addictions all lead back to the way YOU think or have learned to think. If YOU are experiencing financial problems or problems in your relationships at some point YOU have to examine the way YOU think.
Take a few moments today to examine the ways in that YOU have learned think and behave:
Examine your moods
Examine your actions
Examine the way that YOU treat others
Examine the way that others treat YOU
Examine the things that anger and frustrate YOU
Examine the things that YOU believe to be true
Today honestly see yourself as YOU really are. Begin today to determine if your world round or flat? Begin today to know that YOU are uniquely special and there is only one YOU to ever exist. Today begin to work toward becoming the greatest YOU that YOU can be today, each day, everyday, one day at a time.
