What Is Your I AM?
I AM. Two of the most powerful words ever spoken. There is power in all words but, this combination is magical. These words have the power to create, transform, build up, and tear down. Spoken with conviction, I AM can change your life. Whether the change is for better or worse is up to you.
The things you choose to believe about yourself represent your I AM. Somewhere along the line, we got that information a little mixed up. We have made up in our minds that what others think about us is who we are. This is only true if you choose to believe it. In other words, no one can define who you are. It is YOU that must believe, and no one can do that for you.
So, what are you believing about yourself? Look around you. What do you see? Look in the mirror. Are you happy with what’s in front of you? Look at your bank account. Satisfied? How about your relationships? Your health? I’m not asking you to look at your material things and allow them to define you. I’m asking you to look at the life you’ve made for yourself. If you look around and see things that make you feel good, then you can honestly say you know who you are and what you want. Now, if you look around and see unaccomplished goals, undesirable living space, people that don’t support you, illness, or lack, you have either consciously or unconsciously developed some negative beliefs about yourself.
Your belief is a very important part of who you are. When you believe you are not enough, you’ll never be enough, there is never enough for you, then this will be your truth … your I AM. If you don't change this mindset, your circumstances will remain the same. Full disclosure, this was my I AM for most my life. Until about two years ago when I began a journey of self-discovery. Prior to this journey, I was not happy with most of the choices I’ve made in life. Everywhere I turned there was lack and loss. I would always have this feeling of “this can’t be my life” and “I know there is more out there for me”. Unfortunately, the dominating feeling I had was fear. So, I never really made any “real” attempts at trying to figure out why I was feeling that way.
A year into my journey, I decided to act during my feeling of “I know there is more out there for me”. It was like my desire to have better had finally grown strong enough to overpower my fears. I allowed myself to believe the thought of there being more for me and more began to come my way! I chose to believe that I was destined to be great. I chose to believe that I am more than enough. This change of mindset lead me to an abundance of gratitude for all that I had and all I’d experienced in life; good or bad. Changing my beliefs gave me clarity of who I am. I am a woman deserving of love, respect, and all the desires of my heart. I am powerful, I am fearless, I am blessed.
