We are all Exceptional, part 3

 “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”-- Psalm 19:14 (KJV) 

My last two articles explored examples of how God values everyone on a general and a personal level. This writing will touch on the importance of respecting ourselves.

Food for thought: God doesn’t demean us. Do we belittle ourselves?

For many of us, it’s easy to list areas for improvement. We could write pages of mistakes we’ve made, unmet goals, and personality quirks. If you ask a depressed person about their weaknesses, they could talk for hours—or write a book.

Query individuals about their strengths, and it’s a different story. The response will probably be shorter. It may start out with a hesitant, “Ummm..”

Various motivational speakers have discussed the power of the words, “I am…” If a person follows that thought with negativity, it’s likely to come true. On the other hand, individuals can also finish the phrase with positivity. Such optimism will be a catalyst to progress.

 “’I Am’ A Powerful Motivational Video for Success”—Team Fearless

Clarification of the Video: It says God lives inside of us, or “You are God.”. There is only one God, but His Spirit is in us. It directs us internally. “Conscience” is only a part of that. I think that’s the meaning of the creators of the presentation.

This Youtube video illustrates the power of optimistic self-talk.  Here are some highlights. “I am...”
  • An Achiever
  • Abundant
  • Capable of Anything
  • A Miracle
  • More than my body
  • A Champion

 My Conclusion

“Whatever follows the I am, will eventually find you.”—DemarkableP

Is your self-talk uplifting?
