You and I possess the power to change our moods and perspective. How? By changing the way we speak. When we talk differently, we think differently and when we think differently, we feel differently. That’s why we must continue to speak positive and truths to ourselves.

You and I possess the power to change our moods and perspective. How? By changing the way we speak. When we talk differently, we think differently and when we think differently, we feel differently. That’s why we must continue to speak positive and truths to ourselves.

Saying YES to ourselves teaches us that we can be kind, patient and more loving to ourselves. When we tell ourselves YES, we can change the way we live, we move closer to success. Now, I’d like to challenge you to take one more step. Replace any negative self talk with these words: YES, I WILL.

When you feel that pit in your stomach convincing you that you’ve lost the battle, that you are stuck in a bad situation or that one of your children will never listen to you, stop that thinking immediately. Get control of those thoughts and tell them where to go!

Then, find the solution to that problem and say, YES, I will overcome that issue- regardless how long I’ve struggled with it; YES, I will confront this bad situation or YES, I will find a way to have a better relationship with my child.

The power for you to change what bothers you most is within your reach. Define what you need to change. Give yourself permission to launch a battle and then become convicted that you will make that change. I believe in you.
