Five Tips to Eliminate Your Negative Thoughts and Develop Empowering Ones

Use these five tips to eliminate your negative thoughts and develop empowering ones. Understand that you are the creator of your life. Take action and reclaim a joy-filled life.

label and acknowledge what you see yourself as being or feeling. Perhaps you see yourself as a failure. Bring it to the surface and realize that this is what you are saying about yourself. Now, ask yourself, “Would I allow someone else to call me a failure?” NO, of course you wouldn’t. So, why are you calling yourself one? SO JUST STOP IT! Turn it around today. Speak positive over

a gratitude list of all the many things that you are blessed with…things that you have, things that you are and things that you’ve accomplished in your life. Look around you, and see with not only your eyes but, with your heart and mind. Here are several example to get you thinking: you have good health, you have your family, I have a beautiful apartment or home, you are able to read about
and learn new things, and you have many means of communicating with others (computer, Phone, IPad), and perhaps, you have a job/career. The list can go on and on.

Emma’s Wisdom #1: Buy a journal. In your
gratitude journal, write a list of two-three gratitude a day. Keep this for a year; look back on all the positives in your life. Doesn’t this make you realize all the great things that you are experiencing in your life. These came about because you are smart, you are creative, you are goal-directed and you are a leader. Know that you are a great person, friend, coworker, parent, or daughter/son.

and acknowledge all of your personal attributes, accomplishments and blessings throughout each the day. Say them out loud and think about them in your thoughts, as often as you can throughout the day. An example would be: I am a great friend. I am creative. I accomplish all of my tasks with ease and confident. I am a great leader. I am a great worker. Start speaking strength and empowerment into your life. You are the leader of your family or at your job. Repeat these affirmations with certitude frequently.

some quiet time in your day, in a quiet place, so you can calm your mind, body and spirit. Practice taking slow deep breath… (In through your nose and out through your mouth). This process quiets your thoughts and mind. At night before you go to sleep or in the early morning are excellent times to practice this technique. Repeat the breathing technique as many times as needed until you are more relaxed and you are indeed breathing slower. Now, with closed eyes, visualize where and what you would be doing or accomplishing as a smart and creative person. Visualize all the places you would go and the things you would be doing. How you would feel, look, dress and act. Visualize yourself as an effective parent and leader in your family, on your job, at your church or
in your community. You have courage! Remember, there is no limit to your vision. Success begins in your mind with a dream or a vision.

the gifts of gratitude, empowerment and visualization technique you just received with someone else, perhaps a neighbor, co-worker, or friend. You’ve heard so many times, that giving is like a boomerang, it comes back to you!!  According to the Bible, the more you give, the more will return to you.  Also, according
to Karma, what goes around, comes back around. Make a habit sharing your gifts daily and you will discover the true source of success.

Wisdom That Transforms Lives

Hello Knowledge Seekers

Goal setting is an art, as said by Darren Hardy of Success Magazine. I couldn’t
have agreed more. It is much more than a New Years resolution.  I am learning
better the process of setting goals. One of the things I’ve learned from the
training and leadership from Take Shape for Life is call Structural Tension. You
must assess where you current are or your current reality. Take an inventory of
where you are and write it down. Then write down where you want to be, or your
goal.   Now, first of all, this allows you to see the big picture or better yet
the truth. Many times we fool ourselves into thinking we are one place, and in
actuality we are another. I am a visual learner and this has help me to
assimilate a lot better. Now, in order to get from current reality to your goal,
what will be the steps involved. List them. First, I will need to do A, B, C and
D. List the steps  realistically. Follow these simple directions to get you where you want to go.

Empowering Yourself to Move to the Next Level

When we have a desire to move to the next level, many times we are not always ready to endure the stretching and the uncomfortable encounters  that may accompany this advancement.  However, if we persevere,and keep our eyes on where we want to be, instead of where were are now, we will achieve our goal. Stop focusing on where you are and apply more focus on where you want to be. Believe you can and guess what? You will! Your thoughts now,drive your future reality.

Do something different like I did. Start a new business. Better yet, become an entrepreneur.

Empowering Women For Life

Women with spouses, children and sometimes aging parents are so busy, they often time neglect their needs by always putting others first. We need to nurture and pamper ourselves first so that we can be better mothers, wives and daughters. It’s OK to pamper yourself!!  If you don’t do it, who will. Self love is not a selfish act.

Why do you think it’s so difficult for us women to give ourselves the oxygen first?  Sustain your life and you will be in a better position to help sustain someone else’s!!
