Beginning Your Day
Gratitude and Forgiveness
Begin your day with gratitude and forgiveness. Start your day with thoughts of appreciation for Self, for your body, for your health and for your life. Begin today and each day with gratitude and forgiveness. Forgive yourself and others for all negative actions, activities, words and thoughts. Allow yourself to feel forgiveness within, release it, begin to relax and feel good within your mind and body. Begin to each day with this mindset, it will allow YOU to create and develop mental and emotional balance within your life.
The Process of Empowerment
The process of empowerment begins with establishing a goal. To start this process YOU will have to determine that there is something within your life that YOU really want to work on, change, get better at or completely eliminate. This process begins with an acknowledgement of your wants, needs, values and ends with absolute knowledge of Self. This knowledge develops out of complete honesty with Self, and completely focusing on the thing (s) that YOU know within your heart that YOU need to work on.
This acknowledgement becomes your defining moment of clarity, this becomes your fork in the road and this choice/decision is vital within the process because it is the first step o many on to the path of self help, personal development, change and Personal Empowerment. Your personal acknowledgement brings us to the next step within the process of empowerment, that is the certainty of change (becoming sure that YOU really want to change). This is the place where most individuals run into the wall. They are all amped up about the idea of change, they have made their resolutions, told all of their friends and family members about the goal or intended accomplishment. Some purchase a membership with the local fitness center; hire a personal trainer or purchase books or a video or two. Some purchase patches, gum or flush or pour their problem down the drain in preparation for change. They get started and within a matter of days “flop” and they are right back at it again. Why? It is because nothing changed within! Only the external activities changed momentarily, but nothing changed with the mindset of the individual. This is where effort is important. There are several levels within the process of change and we are discussing the most important. This is where the “work” begins. The work begins with establishing a new mindset and thoughts. Your thoughts are important because they lead YOU and guide YOU. Your mindset is your concrete, established way of thinking and behaving. If you do not have a transition within your process of thinking then nothing truly occurs, only a waste of time and money. Begin today to become certain that YOU want to work on YOU today, each day, everyday, one day at a time.
