You want to be successful. Right?
How about being successfully, magnificently YOU. The you that you were designed to be.
That sounds good, doesn’t it?
But how do you do it? If you haven’t done it yet…is in really on the cards for you? And is it possible for you to be the successfully, magnificently YOU that could live a life you’ve only dreamed of so far?
Yes. And Absolutely Yes.
And if you’re still really skeptical…I’ve got some ideas to get you on that road to that successful you that is waiting. Rocky as it sometimes is.
If you can relate to struggling with success. If you are ready to move forward, today is the day to start looking at success with new eyes.
Today is the day to give that successfully, magnificently you an opportunity to be born and to thrive.
Beginning with giving up the ideas and perspectives that have been holding you back and stealing your enthusiasm and energy.
The truth of being successfully, magnificently YOU
The truth is we haven’t always defined success as it relates to us. We’ve simply picked up ideas and perspectives on success that seemed to be the general consensus.
But you are not a general anything. You are unique in this whole world. You have gifts that the rest of us don’t have. And once you acknowledge them and use them, you are on the way to being successfully and magnificently you.
Accept yourself. Acknowledge yourself. And don’t wait for someone else to tell you how to be you. Or how to be successful at being you. Begin to believe it for yourself.
Make it easier on yourself
Begin by assuming you know what a successfully, magnificently you looks like… right now. Today.
And never sacrifice who you are, or what you want to be because of someone else’s problem with it.
Forget yesterday, forget any failures of the past. They were just events that happened.
Listen to Maya Angelou who says “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” That’s the starting point.
Remember the hardest battle is often between who you were and who you’ve decided to be.
And sometimes you just have to step outside of the one you were and take a look at the future you. The one you were always meant to be.
Practice new thinking
We all tend to think we’re thinking, but truthfully, we’re just experiencing mental activity, a monkey mind that flits around from thought to thought.
You know the stuff, the thousand thoughts we give to the small insignificant things in our life, and they just don’t matter.
Break this habit.
Get out of your own way. The incessant chatter of your monkey mind won’t and can’t bring about change.
They’re not the thoughts that can alter the course of your life and reshape your destiny.
Take your mind’s opinions and chatter with a grain of salt. It’s a master trickster and might try to tell you that you don’t have what it takes.
Remember it’s you, the inner depth of you who’s writing your life story. And you have to take responsibility and stop allowing your mind to tell you what you can’t do and determine to think thoughts that show you what you can do. The successfully, magnificent you that has found the way to live the life they want.
Dare to be
The one who believes they have everything they need to fulfill their purpose.
Don’t make yourself small for anyone or anything. You are enough. You have enough. Stop allowing today’s opportunities to be crushed under the weight of what might happen tomorrow.
You are a beautiful being with a breathtaking spirit and yet are still a work in progress, so give yourself a chance to discover how you can be successfully, magnificently YOU.
And remember your life is a reflection of your inner being, which is powerful beyond measure, and at any given moment you can go within and release this greatest self.
Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow.
You don’t have to make a gigantic leap into your new, up-dated version of a successfully, magnificent you. Just keep moving in the direction of the change you seek.
Little steps work. All you need do is be certain you have defined success as you now want to live it.
Encourage one another.
