Today’s Affirmation – “I’m my biggest fan and choose to build myself up!”

Are you your biggest fan?  Or when others throw stones, do you use them against yourself? I'd like to relate today's affirmation to bullying. There's a real campaign going on to stop bullying.  The problem is, the focus is on bullying as opposed to focusing on increasing the self esteem and confidence of the kids (or some cases adults) who are being bullied. I read a sad story the other day Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “Life is easy and being creative comes naturally to me!”

Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Silly question, sorry.  I'm sure everyone at some point feels overwhelmed.  It's normal. For some people, it's also normal to feel this way all the time.  I invite you to check in and ask yourself if you are one of these people.  And if you are, I know you're not alone. "Making the simple complicated is a common place".  And it doesn't have to be.  First we Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I keep my commitments, and most importantly to myself”

Do you find you keep commitments?  Sometimes it’s easier to keep commitments made to others, rather than the ones we make to ourselves.  Take a moment and contemplate how good you are at keeping commitments to yourself.   Are you able to count on yourself when you make a promise? Commitment means choosing in favour of YOU, choosing in favour of what matters most to you. When we make a Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “When people disagree with me I am at my best!”

Is this true for you?  It’s quite natural actually, when someone disagrees with us to get our back up, feel defensive and protect our opinion, especially in the workplace. Imagine the possibilities if someone disagrees with us and we are open to what they have to say.  Maybe would we learn something new.  It's also quite probably they have different experiences from us and might have knowledge Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I Focus on and Radiate the Energy of Love”

When something bad happens do you focus on, and radiate the energy of love or do you find yourself swallowed up in pain, grief or anger for what has taken place?  I think it’s more common to be swallowed up in the pain.  That’s what we do.  Whatever the tragedy is, and didn’t actually happen to us, we try and put ourselves in the situation and think about how we’d feel.  And it doesn’t Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “I stay in my business, change my inside world and the outside changes too”

Byron Katie (www.thework.com) talks about there being 3 kinds of business; your business, my business, God’s business.  God’s business is all the things we really have no control over like storms, rain, famine in Africa.  Your business is all the things you think, say, feel and do.  My business is all the things I think, say, feel and do. Staying in our business means noticing when we Read more [...]

Today’s affirmation – “I’m smiling from the inside out!”

Have you ever felt that way?   Like you are smiling from the inside out?  I read once that if you're not happy, smiling can actually make you feel better. So I tried it and it worked.  I've now created a habit of smiling when I first wake up to get the happy juices flowing. I also know that when we smile, it makes other people smile.  It's like yawning.  Ever notice when you yawn and someone Read more [...]

Today’s affirmation – “In my determination, I accomplish everything I want to”

Do you have an invincible determination for anything?  Think of a time when you did.  Nothing could stop you right? Sometimes we want things but for whatever reason, the determination factor just isn’t there and we don’t seem to accomplish what we want, or if we do, it’s a real struggle.  It’s that ‘pig headed discipline’ that’s needed to mentally get us where we need to go. I’ve Read more [...]

Today’s affirmation – “I have so much to offer and appreciate all of my talents”

Do you undervalue what you bring to the table and overvalue your deficiencies?  Take stock today of the great things about yourself and notice when your mind wants to put you down.  Notice, be gentle and then move from under-valuing back into appreciation.   Today, I invite you to join me in affirming "I have so much to offer and appreciate all of my talents" and let's do Read more [...]

Today’s Affirmation – “What I do makes a difference in my life and others”

Today's thought provoking question is, as you do what you do for a living, do you focus on money or service? Whether you’re an entrepreneur or work for someone else, where our heads are at, makes a difference in what we do and how we do it.  If our focus is on how much we’re making, we’re not thinking about what we’re doing or who we’re doing it for. I know when I start to worry about Read more [...]
