Once a week I have to jab myself with a needle. To put it more politely. I give myself a shot.
Nothing horribly serious…the fickle finger of fate just at work and I don’t absorb B12 very well…all right not at all.
And okay, we all know that fate had absolutely nothing to do with it, fickle or otherwise…but boy I liked that phrase and I was going to use it come hell or high water.
Once we knew about the deficiency, and I began jabbing myself regularly, the fogginess of thought and all the things that went along with it, virtually disappeared. Notice I said virtually, just in case ‘you-know-who‘ is reading this and decides to leave some funny comment on my thinking capabilities.
Poised with needle in hand this morning…the thought came to me. Wouldn’t it be great if we could give ourself a booster shot of optimism, or joy, or gratitude. And how about a daily booster for our relationships or careers or finances. With a big boost going to our success.
In fact, couldn’t we choose to boost everything in life and would it take any longer than giving ourself a jab with a needle?
Believe me, once you’ve jabbed yourself a few hundred times, you can get it done really quickly.
A Gratitude Boost
Gratitude always brings more things to be grateful for. We’re unlocking the door that leads to incredible joy in our life as it converts the ordinary into the extraordinary, the meagre meal into a grand dining experience, or poor health into greater vitality. A vibration of gratitude sets up a powerful field of energy and if we’re grateful for what we currently have, be it financial, love, work, however limited it currently is, not only will those areas grow, but blessings will abound in other parts of our life.
An Encouragement Boost
Take a minute to give praise or to send praise mentally.
Another powerful energy booster. Everyone benefits when praise is sincere and heartfelt, especially when spoken out loud. Find someone today to praise; a fellow worker, a friend, a partner a family member. A stranger will do just fine. We could all do with a daily encouragement boost, regardless of how successful we currently are, or are not. It just feels so flipping good.
Think back to when you were praised and recognized…maybe for something you did, and maybe just because. Just because you’re you. Didn’t that feel good? Didn’t you get a spiritual boost, an uplifting of your heart? That’s an energy boost for you and the encourager. Pretty good deal all round for a minute of our time.
A Creativity Boost
Creativity lies within the power of our mind. Imagination, and intuition will lead the way, if you step aside and allow. Creativity is willing to leap before it looks…and it’s often surprised at the huge jump it took. Add a little enthusiasm, a sprinkling of passion and a pinch of motivation and we have a creativity boost worth boasting about.
If you’re working on a project, or you have a goal to accomplish do you believe you need a certain amount of time to accomplish it. Sometimes a really, really long time? Remember, that’s only a belief. Changing your belief can bring an enormous creativity boost, and your project or goal can be done much sooner than you previously expected. Try it and see.
A Confidence Boost
We all get by now, that our thoughts and feelings create a vibration of energy that draws events and experiences into our world. And from an energy perspective who we are matters…a lot. Who we are is the cumulative effect of our thoughts and feelings and beliefs and what we accept and consent to as true.
If we vibrate with an energy that allows us to easily and quickly accomplish our goals and experience our desires, our successes can occur before you can say Jack Robinson.
Your self-confidence and self-image belong to you. They’re not given by some unseen force nor do they appear through any particular circumstance. They’re bestowed on you, by you. So focus on your positive qualities, think about your past successes and take pleasure in them. Be thankful for who you are and the the gifts and talents that are uniquely yours. That success breeds success is true for everything. It’s all possible to them that believe.
And keep right on encouraging one another.
