The Power of “IS/ARE” statements

A few months ago, I wrote about the power of, “I AM” statements.  In that post, I suggested you use “I AM…” statements to help you powerfully manifest the life of your dreams.  In the eyes of The Universe, “I am” statements are statements of fact.  Whatever you say you are is what you are, as far as The Universe is concerned.  As a result, consciously making empowering, “I AM” statements can help shape and define your life.

The great thing about “I am” statements is you can use them to help improve your relationships with the people around you.  When you say things like, “We are…” or “They are…” you also call into existence more of the corresponding qualities.

For example, if you are talking about your coworkers and you say, “WE ARE a terrific team!”  You create an even better and more cohesive team.  Or in relation to your spouse, “He/She IS loving and supportive”, you are guaranteed to create even more love and support.

Remember, these types of statements do not need to be true NOW, they simply need to be positive beliefs you choose to manifest,

To be clear, “They are”, “He/she is”, or “We are” statements are not about changing other people.  We have no power to manifest or force change on others nor should we try.  Instead, these types of statements reframe our views or beliefs about the relationship with these individuals.  As you begin to react differently and more positively to the relationship the other person/people may also begin to react in a more positive way.  Or they may not.  Either way you will be in a better frame of mind and your inner peace and positivity are all that matter when it comes to achieving your dreams.

“Is/Are” statements are not an end all cure all.  If your boss acts like a jerk or your spouse is abusive, using “Is/Are” statements most likely will not miraculously make the situation better, but they may help you manifest a space for yourself that makes your life tolerable until you can create a plan to move on.

Now that you are aware of the power of, “IS/ARE” statements, think about some of the relationships your would like to reinforce or improve and then write down a few statements to support what you want to create.

Feel free to share your statements below to help inspire and motivate other readers.

Be Bold, Take Action!

Today is the first of November.  The end of the year is nearly upon us.

During the year I have be encouraging you to write down your goals for 2016-2017 and to take action to achieve them.  Check out the Achievements 2016-2017 page for more information.

So the question I have for you today is:

HAVE YOU ACHIEVED THE GOALS YOU SET FOR YOURSELF FOR 2016?

Like most of us,  you have achieved some of the aspirations on your list.  However, there are probably 2-3 things left you have not done and my guess is that at least one of them is a BIG goal!  There is one goal that you have just not gotten to.  Maybe you have been putting off taking action, been afraid of what would happen if you took steps in the direction of your goal, or just hoped and wished it would come true.  So far, no luck!

The good news is, it is not too late!

You still have a few weeks left to make that dream a reality!  But, you are going to have to take a bold action to do it.  There is no more time to dip your toes in the water.  If you want to reach your goal now is the time to jump in with both feet!

Take some time today to think about 4-5 bold moves you can make to reach your goal by the end of the year (or at least be well on your way).

  • If your goal was to lose weight this year, a bold action could be to hire a personal trainer or nutritionist.
  • If your goal was to get a new job, your bold move could be to start a job search and go on a few interviews.
  • If your goal was to take a vacation, be bold and call a travel agent and book that trip!
  • If your goal was to advance your education, research your schooling options and start a class.

We all have responsibilities we must meet, like caring for our families, paying bills, etc., so I am not suggesting you quit your job, leave your family in the lurch, or stop taking care of your obligations.  You may even want to write down some extreme actions as one of your bold moves (just the thought can be fun and empowering).  What I am suggesting, however, is that you take some action outside of your comfort zone, perhaps an action that you have been avoiding.  Make that phone call, join that club, get out an meet new people/network, hire the trainer, take a class, run the marathon.  Do something you would ordinarily not do.

Here’s and example from my list of goals:

My goal: To sell 500+ copies of my book, Cooking with Your Canine, in 2016.

My bold move: I have written a press release to submit to local new stations in an effort to promote the book.  The first edition is currently for sale and the 2nd edition will be done with the editing process in a few weeks and be ready to self publish and sell as an ebook.
          And you better believe you will all know about it when it is released!!!!!!

For me, the idea of reaching out to the public in such a way is quite frightening and intimidating!  It is a truly bold action for me to take and I know it is what I must do if I want to reach my goal.

So, what bold action are you going to take to ensure you achieve your dreams this year?  Declare it in the comment section below as a sign to the Universe you are committed to achieving your goal!

Good Luck and Have Fun!

Do Not Limit Yourself

Throughout our lives we have all had goals and dreams.  Some we have achieved, some we are in the process of achieving and others are just too extreme to be considered anything other than a complete fantasy.

Let’s examine the last group, those aspirations that are just flights of fancy, things we daydream about being or doing but cannot ever see them becoming a reality.

Here’s an example.  Put yourself in this scenario:

Your goal is to be an actor or other celebrity (singer, athlete, etc.).  You devote yourself to achieving your goal, take classes, hire an acting coach, get an agent and you begin to get recognition for your work.  You are achieving your goal of becoming a celebrity.  One day you realize you have hit your mark.  You are right where you wanted to be.  You will never be at a level to win an Oscar (Grammy/MVP) but you are a successful, popular well-paid actor.  Goal accomplished.

Sounds pretty good, right?  You reached your goal and got what you wanted.  But, why no Oscar?  There are 2 possible reasons:

1-You have no interest or desire to win an Oscar or other award.  It is not something your place value on and therefore it is not one of your goals.

2-You believe the Oscar is somehow out of your reach.  You have placed a limitation on how successful you can be.  You have decided that you are not good enough or do not deserve to win that Oscar.  Industry “experts” or those in the know may have told you that you don’t have what it takes to win that award but you must choose to believe them.  You set the limitation, “I’m just not Oscar winner material so no point in making winning an Oscar one of my goals.”

This is how most of us go through life, dreaming big but not big enough.  We stop ourselves short of the ultimate dream because we believe it is not possible for us to reach it.  We create limiting beliefs for ourselves that keep us from setting that amazing, daring goal.  These limitations protect us from the consequences of failure/success, not being deserving, not being good enough or judgement of others.

The good news is, you have set the limitations so you can remove them.  It is not always easy because often we don’t know what our limiting beliefs or patterns are, if we did we probably wouldn’t keep them around.

 

Tomorrow I’ll give you a few tips on how to pinpoint your limiting beliefs.

In the mean time if you would like help identifying and clearing your limiting beliefs contact me at achievewellness@ymail.com or visit my website.  I would love to help you make your dreams a reality.
