Motivation Monday – Believe In Yourself

I used to be this person. Broken, beaten, and seeing no real reason to continue on. And then came a pivotal moment in my life – I was diagnosed as a Diabetic. I wish I could say that that instantly propelled me to action, that I was instantly ready to come out swinging, but no… I was shell shocked for several days, and the feeling of defeat was incredibly present.

But then came another pivotal moment in my life – the change in my mindset. Did I think it sucked that I was a Diabetic? Honestly, yes. Did I think it was a little unfair? Unfortunately, I am guilty of that. But something inside of me clicked and I remembered a simple phrase an old friend had taught me – Life asks of you only what it knows you can handle – and while truthfully, I could deal with having much fewer “tests” – the fact that after all I have been through I am still standing, not jaded, not throwing in the towel… that says something, to me.

It tells me I am a fighter. It tells me I have the determination to get through this, and anything else that might find its way in my path. You have to believe in yourself – it doesn’t matter how much anyone else believes in you – Y O U have to believe in Y O U R S E L F.

Have faith in yourself. Believe in yourself. Your challenges become exponentially easier when you have belief in yourself on your side!

Motivation Monday – I can.

Want to know a secret? You can too! But you gotta BELIEVE that. You gotta tap into your abilities, and erase any doubts.

Not gonna be easy, nope. Not gonna be more than you can handle, nope. Real talk? You can do anything you set your mind to. Set your goals, believe in yourself, and go forth and crush them!

Go forth… and do!

Wednesday Wisdom – Benjamin Carson

The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they’re going to do better. That’s why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There’s nobody I don’t say that to.
– Benjamin Carson
I am admittedly not a prayer. I am more the type to send out strength, healing vibes, positivity, encouragement, love, etc. But I do believe that the mind is definitely in control, and if you come from a place of positivity, you will be much better off. Keep the faith, and believe in it.
