Being that way

The way you see yourself has a powerful impact on what you make of yourself. And you are free to see yourself in any way you choose.

What you sincerely think of yourself influences what you do with your life. The way you spend your time, and your actions, your commitments and priorities all flow from your image of yourself.

It really doesn’t matter if the image is realistic or not. Because you have the power to shape your own reality so that it agrees with the image.

What does matter is that your self-image be authentic. When you consistently see yourself as who you really, truly desire to be, that’s who you become.

Your wishes alone will not make anything happen. And yet, when you persistently see yourself as you wish to be, you will guide your own actions to move your life in that very direction.

Choose a positive, meaningful, compelling and authentic vision of the way you would like to be. And then find great joy and fulfillment in really, truly being that way.
