Beginning Your Day
Gratitude and Forgiveness
A life of personal Empowerment begins with gratitude and forgiveness. Start your day with thoughts of appreciation for your body, for your health and for your life. Begin today and each day with 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
Establishing A New Mindset
This brings us to the next step in the Process of Empowerment. This step is being sure that YOU really want to change. This is the place where most people 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. 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. Being certain is one thing the action of effort in the areas on thought and action are two separate things entirely. Effort plays and important role mentally, emotionally and physically. For example if YOU are attempting to lose weight and you are shopping and you “see” your favorite cookies, very early within the process the challenge begins. The old mindset says “get them” usually the cookies satisfies some feeling or emotion that you’ve hidden or covered over the years. Or you may say “I like them” and you could possibly like them, but eating those cookies are taking you away from the direction of your path.
Balance - An even distribution of (energy, thought, focus and faith) enabling YOU to remain upright and steady.
