Last night I went to see Marianne Williamson speak in LA. On the ride over my friend simply declared…
“I AM AWESOME!”
She wasn’t bragging or having a big ego, she was simply stating her truth. I smiled because you don’t usually hear people making this declaration but then I realized it’s the truth so WHY NOT say it? It’s empowering and energizing to share positive statements.
Many of us are trained to make declarations that are negative such as, “I’m not good at marketing,” “I can’t get a job,” or “I’m so unlucky.” Please stop this!
My friend followed up her “awesome-ness” declaration to share that she had just received a job offer in Real Estate after only three weeks on her job hunt! Clearly evidence that she is in fact AWESOME.
What do YOU want to declare?
I’m declaring that I’m “inspiring!” And that I have a thriving business that I love and a beautiful and loving relationship. Why not?
What about you? Are you a compassionate listener, brilliant business partner, wonderful mom, creative writer, talented teacher, or innovative CEO?
Declare it and own it! Now’s the time…I believe in you! And thank you Alicia for the inspiration and being awesome!
