Today's quotation:

Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to
yourself, "Here is an opportunity for me to celebrate
like never before, my own power, my own ability
to get myself to do whatever is necessary."

Anthony Robbins

Today's Meditation:

It's so easy to forget to celebrate ourselves.  After all, there are so many things that we do wrong, that we could do better, that we could do more effectively. . . . it's extremely easy to criticize ourselves and our lack of power in a world that seems to want us to feel powerless, but the truth of the matter is that we have lots of power, and we do have the ability to do whatever is necessary to get done whatever we need to.

But we do have to be in the right state of mind if we're going to see that power put to good use.  We do have to make the decision to give ourselves credit for having the power in the first place, and we do have to celebrate that power and our abilities.  That very celebration, those very feelings, can be what propel us into a new set of behaviors, a new way of being, a mindset that keeps us doing things that are important to us--and doing them successfully, all the time.

You do have plenty of power as a human being, as a child of God, as a living spirit here on this planet with millions of other living spirits.  But that power will lie latent unless and until you're willing to acknowledge it, accept it, and celebrate its presence in your life.

It's always our choice as to which state of mind we prefer to stay in.  Some of our states of mind limit us and keep us from achieving our full potential.  Other states of mind make celebration of our own power a natural part of who we are.

Questions to consider:

What does your typical state of mind feel like?

What kinds of things affect your state of mind?  How might you limit the effect that those things have?

How often do you celebrate yourself and your existence?

For further thought:

Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad.  It is of paramount importance that we know how
to harness and control this great force.

Tom Blandi
