"I am worthy of the very best in life, and I allow myself to receive it."
I live my life by the above affirmation, and experience has taught me that it's true. With the right mindset, anything is possible. A simple decision to believe in ourselves can bring unlimited happiness and success. Conversely, if you do not accept that you "deserve" the best when an incredible opportunity lands at your feet, you won't know how to act.
For example, a friend of mine had a clear vision of the kind of guy and relationship she wanted. She was fortunate enough to meet a man that fit this vision, but her lack of self-worth sabotaged the relationship. He was everything she wanted, but when the universe handed her a perfect solution, she couldn't convince herself she was worthy and ruined the relationship. Her mindset and flawed views on self-worth prevented her from living her best life.
What belief is limiting you? Have you likely heard the phrase "money doesn't grow on trees? I was repetitively told this phrase by my mother, but it instilled a core belief that I should continuously fear running out of resources. Over time I realized my fear of not having money contributed to worry and anxiety. Changing my mindset about money was an awakening. If you are emotionally triggered or consumed with worry about money, a change in your mindset can improve your relationship with money forever.
Remember: whatever your mind believes becomes your reality. You are worthy of the beauty this life has to offer, so let's change your mindset so you are receptive to a new and better reality.
Let's begin with minor adjustments. Start with an affirmation and the way you speak to yourself. It takes practice, but once it becomes a habit, you will notice the universe shifts in your favor. Every morning I tell the universe, "I'm ready to receive my gifts today." My positive mindset allows for magical things to happen to me. It could be as simple as a smile from someone or as extravagant as an upgrade to my hotel room for free! My brain is filled with positive thoughts, and that's why positive things happen.
This mindset also predisposes me to pay it forward to others. When I check out at the grocery store, I smile and ask the cashier about their day. You'll be surprised how far a smile can go and a thank you. Energy is everything, and you will receive back what you put out. The next time you're at Starbucks, pay for the person behind you and see how it makes you feel. After, affirm to the universe that you are ready to receive all the magic available to you.
You are worthy of everything wonderful this life has to offer you, but you need to start believing you are worthy. Don't let a negative mindset from misguided advice, unnecessary expectations, or flawed thinking introduced by parents, friends, or former partners hold you back. You are worthy!
Again, let's start small and pick an affirmation that resonates with you. Pinterest is an excellent starting point to select your affirmation. Make this positive thought your phone background, tape it to your mirror, put it beside your bedside, and say it every day. Once you accept the affirmation to be true, you'll start to see it in your everyday life.
Everything begins with the belief you have in yourself. Don't forget how worthy you are!!!!
"Believe in yourself, your abilities, and your own potential. Never let self-doubt hold you captive. You are worthy of all that you dream of and hope for." -Roy Bennett.
