I Am ___
What do you suppose are the two most powerful words in the English language?
Care to take a guess?
I asked this question in a training session recently and got some interesting answers.
“Yes and No.” That’s a good one; that was actually my guess, too, but it’s wrong.
“BLEEP YOU.” Yeah… sometimes we hear something like this during a session.
Here’s the correct answer: “I am.”
Because, as award-winning author Gary Hensel writes, “What you put after them shapes your reality.”
Think about it.
Do you often find yourself saying things like:
I am tired
I am busy
I am overwhelmed
I am lazy
I am not motivated
I am overworked
I am afraid
I am not smart enough
I am not strong enough
Well, what sort of reality do you think that’s going to create?
Your brain is a goal-achieving machine and it operates off of the “programming” that is installed by the very things we say to ourselves.
So what’s playing in the background for you?
What’s your brain programmed to achieve?
Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
What’s coming for you?
If you don’t like what you see, I strongly suggest you start paying attention to your I AM statements and start adopting some new ones.
Remember, to HAVE the life you want, you must first BE the person who will DO the things to get it. That starts with a powerful and connected I AM statement.
