This is a question that I have been asking myself recently, and I strongly encourage you to ask yourself the same question… if not you, then who?
Let me give you a little bit of context as to why this question is an important one to ask ourselves on a daily basis.
As I have gotten more into studying the Law of Attraction, one of the things that I have really reinforced into my daily routine is the use of positive affirmations. You know, those affirming thoughts that we can achieve anything that we desire in life.
Well, I am not perfect and still experience doubt every once in a while. For example, one of the affirmations that I use is “I have the skills and abilities to make $1 million on a yearly basis.” As I think and say this affirmation, doubt will sometimes crawl into my mind and contradict the very thought that I am affirming.
“Do I actually have the skills to make $1 million per year?”
“Am I truly deserving of making such a large amount of money?”
“Am I really as ‘good’ as those who are making $1 million per year?”
I think it’s normal that everybody experiences doubt, especially when we are forced to break out of our comfort zones.
But to answer the question, yes, I do actually believe that I have the skills and ability to make $1 million per year. I also am deserving of making such a large amount of money, and I know for a fact that I am just as good as those who are making $1 million per year.
The best part is that so are you.
We are all equally as good, equally as deserving, and all skilled in our own unique ways. It’s time that we stop looking at our dreams as distant desires, and instead, start seeing them as already being our reality.
You Get What You Ask For
The Universe will bring all things to you in which you ask for. It does not know the difference between $1 and $1 million. The only thing that is stopping anybody from actually earning $1 million per year, or achieving any other desire for that matter, is their limiting beliefs.
There is a reason why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. It’s because of the beliefs that they have.
Individuals who are rich in regards to money, life fulfillment, happiness, success, or any other desire are rich because they believe that they are deserving of the life that they have and focus their minds on thoughts that are going to bring them more wealth.
Those who are on the opposite end of the spectrum in regards to money, life fulfillment, happiness, success, or any other desire are where they are because of the beliefs that they have developed regarding these different areas of life.
One simply can’t be rich in any walk of life if they don’t truly believe they deserve to be. And the same is true for the contrary as well. One simply can’t be poor in any walk of life unless they believe they deserve to be.
Everybody gets exactly what they ask for and what they focus their thoughts and beliefs on. Nothing more and nothing less.
If Not You, Then Who?
Going back to the question of “If not you, then who?” it’s time you start realizing that you deserve nothing less than anybody else.
It doesn’t matter who you look up to whether that be Michael Jordan, Michael B. Jordan, Beyonce, Warren Buffett, or anybody else, you deserve nothing less than any of these individuals. But you need to full-heartedly believe that.
In looking at the things that you want in life, why not believe in yourself? Why not believe that you are deserving of living the life you envision for yourself and the one you are willing to work for? Why should you stop chasing your dreams only to have others achieve them?
You shouldn’t. You should believe in yourself no matter what because you, and only you have the ability to achieve the life for yourself that you dream of living.
If not you, then who? Don’t allow yourself to think others are better and more deserving of you. Don’t let others tell you what you can and can’t achieve. Don’t let others determine your quality of life.
Believe in yourself and believe that you have the ability to achieve anything and everything you desire because you do!
The Importance of Affirmations
If you have ever doubted yourself and/or have ever let your fears stop you from pursuing the life you have always dreamed of having, then you need to start using positive affirmations.
Yes, I am saying that everybody should start using positive affirmations. Why? Because they work.
It isn’t going to be easy to achieve the life that you desire, but if you want it badly enough, then you need to recognize all of the strengths that you possess, and you need to turn your dreams into your reality.
Are you going to doubt yourself? Naturally. But as long as you use positive affirmations and reinforce the belief that you are deserving of achieving the life you dream for yourself, then nothing is going to be able to stop you from achieving it.
Before You Go
I am a firm believer that we can truly achieve anything and everything that we set our minds to. Sure, we are going to make mistakes, doubt ourselves when we make these mistakes, and we are probably going to be judged by others, but who cares?!
This is your one chance at life. At the end of your life, the only thing you are going to regret is not doing more of the things you wish you would have done with the time that you had.
Don’t let any more time pass you by. Live the life that you want to live, be proud of the individual you are, and pursue the desires that fill your thoughts.
If others deserve to make $1 million per year, then so do you.
If others deserve to find happiness in their lives, then so do you.
If others deserve to start a successful business or publish a novel, then so do you.
There is nothing that you don’t deserve to achieve, so start working for your dreams, and above all else, start believing in yourself and in the power you possess.
