- I can not wait for the glorious day to get started.
- I will have an amazing day today.
Now say those things, and the like, every day for the rest of your life. Don’t prophecize negativity into your life, don’t call in the bad feelings. Zip it! Zip it! Zip it! Just zip it up folks, I am certainly not trying to be corny here. In fact, did you know that there was a physician in Europe who did a study with his patients. For three months he gave all of his patients a placebo and told them that in addition to taking their medication; they were instructed to say the words, “I am healthy, I am strong, I am healed” three times an hour. Did they get healthier? Well you betcha!
Call out what you want to be. Don’t let your words bring about a negative, unhealthy life. Remember, what we say about ourselves is more important than what others say about us. Try something for me just for a second. Say out loud, “I am tired, I have no energy.” How does that make you feel? Show me someone who is healthy and looks great and I’ll guarantee that person is certainly not mumbling about being tired and cranky and beat up.
Health and strength start from the inside and can never coexist with a negative attitude. Please take the time this weekend to think about what your words and your thoughts say about you. Call out what you want to be. Speak the words of what your image looks like. I guarantee after weeks of waking every morning and thanking God for your blessings, then moving on to statements such as, “I am healthy”. I feel great”. I am strong”, it will be really hard for you to be anything but healthy and feeling better.
If this sounds somewhat strange to you, I ask you, “What have you got to lose?” As far as I can see, maybe a few pounds and some pains here and there.
