Good afternoon! I hope that you're having a positive and elevated day. Today, I want to encourage you to begin to encourage yourself. There is power and liberty in the ability to encourage yourself. We often allow the way we feel about ourselves to be determined by others. We allow the steps that we take in life and the choices we make to be determined by others. But as I say in my first book and as I've mentioned in numerous blogs,"he who controls the mind, controls the life." When you begin to learn to encourage yourself, you will be able to control your mind more successfully. It is not weakness to allow someone to control your mind. When we are born, our parents are in control. They control what we eat and how we live. Someone controlling our mind is literally what we're born into. Weakness derives when you reach the point where you have the ability to control your own mind, and you don't. This specific point is adulthood. When someone controls the way you think, they will ultimately control the life you will live. But this is your life! They have their one life to live as do you. Do not allow someone else to control your life. You must control your own life and manifest your own destiny. This strength doesn't come over night, you must practice. Even the most disciplined of Monks had to practice to achieve the degree of mental strength that they posses. You too can posses such strength. So, today encourage yourself and encourage others.
Have a positive and elevated day.
