I AM – The Two Most Powerful Words

The two most powerful words you can say to yourself

I AM wanting to start out by challenging you a little bit (see what I did there?). Stop and take a minute to reflect on your thoughts over the last day, over the last two days, or even over the last week. What do you think about yourself lately? Have you thoughts been more positive, or have they been more negative? The reason that I ask, is because those thoughts have crafted what is now your present and they are currently crafting your future. Every one of those thoughts will start with the two most powerful words that you can say, I AM.

Let me share with you why these two words are so powerful. Whatever comes after “I AM” starts the creation process. If you truly believe in what follows these two powerful words, then you are already shaping your life to follow. When they are negative words, then it is going to hurt your morale. If they are positive words, then they are going to give you strength and a boost of confidence. The good thing about these two words is that you get to control the outcome. If you tell yourself that you are strong, you are powerful, and you are capable, then you have already taken the first step into creating a better life for yourself.

Having the physical power to do something and taking action is only half of the equation. The other half of the equation comes from believing in your power and strengths. In order to achieve your dreams, you must first believe in your dreams. You must have the confidence in yourself that you can actually achieve them. Without truly believing in your ability to achieve your dreams, you will never have the confidence needed to turn these dreams into a reality.

Of course everyone wants to live a life of happiness, but people struggle with this because they don’t know how. To live a happier life, you first need to understand what your values in life are. From there, you need to put your attention to your values, and you need to give yourself the reinforcements necessary to achieve these values. By saying “I AM,” you are confirming that you believe in yourself and that you can achieve anything. That is a reinforcement that will help you succeed. You are putting your thoughts, energy, and confidence into your values. When you combine all three of these, the combination is incredibly powerful.

Trust me, I have traveled down the path of negativity before. In fact, there were times where I didn’t think that I was ever going to live a positive and energetic life again. Guess what changed me? Believing in myself and saying I AM. I repeated these words over and over in my head until I fully believed them. I worked harder than I have worked in my entire life, and didn’t stop until I believed in myself and my own abilities. There were and still are times when I question myself, but I never doubt. Determination has taken over and I know what I want in my life. Everyday that I wake up, I grind like there is no tomorrow. Why? Because I truthfully don’t know if there will be a tomorrow.

All of this effort just to be able to believe in myself again. It may seem like a lot of work, because it is. But I don’t just see it as believing in myself, I see it as shaping who I am going to become in the future. After years of struggles, I finally believe in myself again. More importantly, I once again love myself. All of my self-love and gratitude for life because of these two easy, yet powerful words: I AM.

The ultimate goal of life is to live a happiest and best life possible. By saying I AM, you are retraining your brain to recognize your true potential. Ignore what others think about you, and focus on what you think about yourself. Be the unique and amazing person that you are, never stop chasing your dreams, and never doubt your abilities. Doubt is only an emotion of being scared. Take risks, live your life, and be whoever and whatever you want to be.
