Did you have a really creative and active imagination as a kid? Did you invent stories and pretend you were invincible, or maybe that you were some kind of superhero? Me too!!! How about now? Do you still dream up make-believe places in your mind, or pretend you have superpowers? Why not?
Somewhere between being a child and now you lost your sense of freedom, or creativity, or permission to dream and play make believe. But, do you realize that your actions and intentions are ruled by your dreams? That the things you think most about become your energy, thus becoming who you are? Wow, I think I want to be a kid again ....
WAIT, you can be!!!! You can choose right now to start using your imagination again! You can choose to give yourself permission to say Y.E.S. right now!!!
Do you realize you were given the most incredible and powerful gift? You were given a song that is only yours to sing!!! No one else can sing your song!!! No one else can shine the light that is uniquely yours! No one has your exact combination of super powers.
By giving yourself permission, and creating a definitive YES for YOU means you say NO to all the noise, all the naysayers, all the repetitive cycles we continue to embrace without ever stopping to ask ourselves, “Is this my truth? And, if this is my truth today ... do I want it to be my truth tomorrow? Do I even believe this?”
Y.E.S. is a complete sentence! And, it is OK for you to say Y.E.S. to yourself first!!! You need to be able to fill your cup, and put on your oxygen mask first, before you can give anything to someone else. That is what You Empowered Strong was built to do ... to help you learn HOW to give yourself THAT permission. To learn how to say Y.E.S. (You Empowered Strong) to yourself.
So, are you ready to say Y.E.S.? Make a commitment to YOU, for YOU today!!!
