It is another Monday being alive and well. We enter into this day and new week knowing that we are in control of how they turn out for us.
Who have you been listening to? Who told you that you could not do xyz? Was that your parents, your siblings, your teachers, your coaches, your friends, your classmates, your colleagues, strangers? Alternatively, did you say that to yourself?
I come your way to suggest that you cease from telling yourself or listening to others who tell you that you cannot do something. You have listened for so long to those negative words. They have become severely active in your life that you now see them as the constant norm. Things do not have to remain that way. Who told you that you can’t?
As is our tradition here at I love Mondays, the intention is to get you started on the journey of viewing yourself and your life from a better perspective and focused lenses. The past does not matter. Yes, you had listened and patterned your life around those poor views that you had been exposed to. The good news is that you are here now, reading this. As a result, the change you so rightly deserve is imminent. Wait for it; get started on the road to full recovery.
You have heard more than enough ‘You can’t’ to last you many lifetimes. Let us exorcise such statements from your subconscious and drop them in the sea of forgetfulness never to be remembered. It does not matter who it was that told you are a failure; you cannot make it; you are no good; you will never achieve those goals you shared with them; you were destined to remain a mediocre; your dreams are bigger than you are; you cannot grow to become successful; you cannot become the manager; you cannot run a business; everything you touch collapses. The Pacific Ocean is not long enough in comparison to your list of your unachievable dreams.
Having paid heed to all those naysayers for awfully long, it is high time you began to reconsider who and what you allow into your life. You will agree that not much have been achieved thus far although you knew that there is more you could do. You can feel it strongly that you were born to be more. Nevertheless, you simply cannot understand what is limiting you.
It is no accident that you are reading this blog post today. Your time to be liberated is now. You are no longer bound to what others have said to/about you in the past. I declare on this blessed Monday 22nd February 2021 that your time has come. You must deliberately cut out all voices of descent and negativity from your life and space. Remember that for you to be elevated, you must separate yourself sometimes.
Whoever told you that you could not had no idea what your future holds. They could not have predicted accurately how your life would turn out. You simply listened to them and allowed your life to be dominated by their wrong proclamations for you. However, all that is past now. You are coming out. You understand the importance and power of words. Therefore, you are taking charge of your own life. You no longer listen to such words.
Being the first day of this new week, I join you on this maiden trip into a brand-new you. I am rooting for you and do believe that you will succeed. You just need to believe in yourself completely. God has too much in store for you to waste any more time paying attention to worthless noise around you. You can change the outlook of your life from this day. Begin to declare positive daily. Your words have life and power. Use them to order your life in the right direction.
No matter what anyone had said, you can go on to achieve all that were designed for you. All you need is a little bit of self-belief, focus, consistency, commitment to get better with a workable plan and putting the plan into action. You can do this. We leave the past where it belongs and enter our new beginning.
What you say to yourself matter the most. Always remember that. I hope you can forget the past to move on to your fresh start. Ask God to guide and help you be strong for yourself and stay connected.
Wishing you a wonderful week of success on your path to discovering the best version of yourself. Keep celebrating your wins each day you take little steps. May God’s joy, love, peace and protection until I come your way again.
