A couple of years ago I came across a book entitled the Power of “I am” by Joel Osteen.
Joel Osteen is the Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church, in Houston, Texas. Osteen’s televised sermons are seen by over 7 million viewers weekly and over 20 million monthly in over 100 countries. His sermons also broadcast 24 hours a day on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, Channel 128. Osteen has written seven New York Times Best Sellers. He has been widely nicknamed “The Smiling Preacher.”
I am not a religious person, nor am I affiliated to any organized religion. However, I felt that these words would be helpful to anyone regardless of their religion.
Whatever follows “I am” will eventually find you
Begin speaking positives parts of yourself. People too often are against themselves. Begin to say to yourself I am a master of my life. Don’t speak defeat into your life, don’t curse your future, inspire it by saying to yourself “I am beautiful, I am worthy, girl/man you are looking good today.”
In today’s world we measure ourselves to a standard of beauty that is hard to achieve. We are constantly comparing our lives with others like who’s going on vacations, seeing other people’s Instagram post and feeling jealous as to how great their life is going. As long as you compare yourself to others, you will never feel good about yourself. You have to remind yourself you are not running their race you are running your race. You can talk yourself into your dreams, or you can talk yourself out of it.
Lastly, If you don’t distance yourself from the wrong people you will never meet the right people.
Namaste to you all!
