Your thoughts run your life. Really, they do. It doesn’t matter how successful you are, how much money you have in the bank, or if you drink coffee or green juice. What matters are the thoughts that are swirling around your head.
We can’t always control what thoughts come into our minds, but we can control which ones stay, which ones get kicked out, and which ones we amplify. Your mind doesn’t have to control you! You actually don’t have to listen to it and believe it when it tells you that you aren’t good enough, thin enough, creative enough, etc. etc.
When those ugly thoughts rear their heads, you do have the power to say, NO NO NO, that is not true! I am enough! I am perfect as I am! I am inspired! I matter! I know that it takes some work to see those thoughts and knock them down. That is why I created the Own Your Awesome™ Affirmation Deck! Affirmations do work, if you work them.
All the time we are telling ourselves negative affirmations and we don’t have to! Everytime that you hear yourself put yourself down, hear that internal buzzer go off and then turn it around into something positive and uplifting! If you need some help my Own Your Awesome™ Deck comes with 52 powerful affirmations. Keep them handy and pull one whenever you are feeling stuck, unhappy, or down. Or, start your day off right and pick a new one each and every morning!
If you really want to feel the full power of positive affirmations, take your card with you to the mirror and say it out loud to yourself into the mirror, looking into your own eyes. This is the most powerful and truly most transformational way to use affirmations. Yes, it may be a little uncomfortable at first, but it really works. Say the affirmation over and over again until you truly feel it and believe it.
Life is too short to simply just go through the motions. It is too precious to live your life according to other people’s shoulds, instead of really listening to what you want. You can be yourself fully. You can say no. You can take the path that is unknown.
Even if you are a mother who always wants to put her children’s needs first, you can shift those shoulds into wants. Remember, that when you take care of you, it affects all. Think about it. When you are lit up, inspired and full of love and joy, everyone feels that, everyone benefits from that. So, you owe it not only to yourself but to all of us, to really, truly, deeply love yourself and take care of yourself.
Easier than it sounds, I get that! That is why I created my 6 week course, Be Your Own Joyologist. The Program. In the 6 weeks we go over all of the tools that I use on a daily basis (and used with Grammy Award winning artists when I toured with them as their personal joyologist) to truly love myself and live my life each and everyday. Because, let’s face it, no matter what your circumstances are, life happens, shit happens and no level of success, wealth, or yoga can protect you from that.
You deserve to treat yourself better. You deserve to love yourself more. You deserve to Own Your Awesome! Be who you are, fully. Love who you are, fully.
Now, do us all a favor and step up and completely OWN YOUR AWESOME!
Tricia Huffman, aka Your Joyologist, is a student of life and a teacher of living. While living out her first dream as a live sound engineer touring the world with Grammy Award winning artists, she saw firsthand that even these people who are living out their biggest dreams, with everything at their fingertips can be unhappy and unfulfilled. That we all need daily inspiration to keep living a life that we love, day in and day out. Thus, Your Joyologist was born to inspire everyone from those same artists to stay at home moms to implement a healthier lifestyle, cultivate a greater self love and keep you in integrity with who you want to be in the world.
