We Are What We Think We Are

Have you ever called yourself stupid? How many times have you said that, or some other negative thing to yourself?
What we say to ourselves and what others say to us, about us, is the programming our internal computer receives. What kind of programming are you putting into your internal computer?
When you wake up in the morning and realize what day of the week it is, do you immediately feel tired? Even though you got a good night’s sleep, you feel tired. Why? Because you’ve told yourself that it’s going to be a long tiring day. Perhaps you’ve told yourself that same thing for years. If so, your internal programming for that day is well established. There’s no time like the present to start re-programming yourself. Our internal computer’s take a bit longer to re-program than the desktop or laptop you use but it can be done and it’s well worth the little effort it requires.
That re-programming can begin at night when you go to bed. Your head is on the pillow and as you drift off to sleep, perform a bit of self-talk.
Here are a few examples of what you might say over and over again to yourself, until you fall asleep.
I will sleep well and wake rested.
Every day is another opportunity for me to shine and share my expertise.
My energy level is high when I wake.
I will wake in the morning ready to have another glorious day and achieve my goals.
I will wake full of energy and ready to take on the challenges of the day.

When you wake in the morning, don’t allow any negative thoughts about the day to dwell in your mind. Program yourself to greet each day with the eager joy of a child. Your morning self-talk might sound something like the following phrases.
I am happy to be alive.
Today will be a great day for me.
I will accomplish the goals I set for myself.
I am responsible for my thoughts and they will be positive thoughts because I am a positive person. My attitude is great and I look forward to today.
I am more than capable of handling anything that comes my way.
I am grateful for my quick mind, my intelligence and the fact that I have a wonderful life.
It’s going to be a fabulous day.
