Believe You Can and You Will

By Nancy Stoops

Just for a moment, think about your mindset regarding yourself.  What is your internal dialogue?  Do you tend to tell yourself you can, and so you do, or do you tell yourself you can’t so you don’t?  Also what is that mindset based on, and is it really your truth?  If you believe you can’t, think about all that you have already done successfully and learn to challenge that lies that hold you hostage.  I bet you are much more capable then your mind tells you.  Take out a piece of paper and fold it in half. Write down all of the lies that hold you hostage.  Now, on the other side, right down your truths based what you have already done successfully.  Next, make as many copies of this paper as you can, and take it with you everywhere. If you are able to, place them all over your house.  Next time you believe you can’t, the truth that you yourself have written down will remind you that you are already have been successful.  Pretty soon, you will be storing the truth in your mind.

Learn to challenge the incorrect belief system that has always held you back from being who you are intended to be.  The truth literally does set us free.  I was raised to believe I could fly.  This mindset has honored me with a life of blessings and success.  Learn to believe in yourself and in your capabilities. The truth is if you believe you can do something and work hard to accomplish it, anything is possible.  Believe you can and you will.  Our mindset literally is a road map for our lives.  Our mindset acts as a designer for our entire lives.  I hope you will take the time to change your mindset and take the opportunity to grow into the best version of you.
