Monday Morning Boost: Embracing Ownership of Our Future
It’s time to embrace ownership of our future.
If we are looking for someone else to do it for us…
It won’t happen.
No more expecting someone else to solve our problems.
Owning our life starts by consistently telling ourselves a better story.
Telling ourselves a better story, every moment, consistently, creates better thoughts, better actions, better insights, and better ideas.
We live in a world created by the story we tell ourselves.
It may be a confident story echoing loudly our internal belief in our self-worth.
Yeah, let’s not go there.
We’ve probably already lived that other story.
We’ve already lived when we’ve let the words, feelings, attitudes, looks, etc. of other people dictate how we feel about ourselves.
“Owning our story can be hard, Brené Brown teaches, “but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.”
Brené Brown continues, “Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
It’s time to do something better, embrace the future.
We tell ourselves a powerful story.
We live an incredible life.
We rock our world.
We show up strong, powerful, courageous, vibrant, compassionate, empathetic, visionary, actionary.*
We own who we are today, strengthening our weaknesses, magnifying our strengths.
We live fully in the present.
We are shaped by but not defined by our past.
We choose to beautifully create our own future.
That’s the story we can tell ourselves. That’s the story we can live. That’s the story we can manifest as true.
Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share.
p.s. Take 13 minutes to focus on steps you can take today to create your future.
*I have taken literary license to have the term “actionary” signify “being in a state of mind to take action.” Technically, an “actionary” is “a commercial term used among foreigners, to signify stockholders.”
