Allow Yourself to Be Successful

If you have failed in life, you aren’t the only one. We all have.

But you cannot be like most people who allow the excuses of trying and failing once be their excuse that their lives aren’t worth more.

Friend, excuses are the way to nothing. So  you cannot give up on yourself. The direction of your destiny is your choice. You choose what outcomes you will have in life.

To go in a certain direction; to live life on your terms, you’ve got to become more. And to become more, you’ve got to believe in your gifts, your opportunities and your abilities.

You’ve then got to make a decision to be SOMEBODY. Decisions are much easier when made.  And trust me, you will suck at some of your decisions at first but it’s not enough to wind up and conclude you aren’t anything. Settle it in your mind that some things you are called to do will be difficult  – and easy is not an option – but hear me, there is GREATNESS IN YOU.

Next, take your life back by shutting out the naysayers, no matter who they are in your life. Get around people who stretch and challenge you. Never forget it, a word of encouragement is worth more than a thousand words of criticism.

Lastly, practice self-talk…positive self-talk. Become your own fan. Permit yourself to be powerful, beautiful, eloquent… desirable. Words are amplifiers—and I will share about this in the coming week.

But this week, talk success and permit yourself to be successful.
