I am reading yet again another self-development book or 2! "Change your life in 7 days', 'Trusting You', Power to Choose' etc.. What exactly am I searching for? They all write relatively the same things on positive thinking, success consciousness and believing in you, so what am I not getting, what am I missing?
I am thinking all the 'right things', spreading awareness, inspiring others and understanding the concepts... So I sat, writing and reading more, then a little voice, with a distant tone said to me, 'Other people see the value in you and benefit from it, so why not you?' It seems that I am projecting all this knowledge outwards, inspiring and helping others and once again neglecting myself.

How often do you receive a compliment from someone and say 'thank you', with confidence. How often do you give helpful and positive advice on love, finances and parenting etc to others and yet are unable to follow that very advice and apply it to yourself? If we gave to ourselves the kindness, knowledge and love that which we give out our self esteem, confidence and success would shine.. We could trust and embrace our uniqueness, follow our dreams and enjoy our one life!

Start with the one thing you are good at doing or giving to others and she how much you do and give the same for yourself. Practice doing and giving to yourself, and feel it, I mean really feel it. Self kindness, self respect, no matter how foreign, feel good about it..

I am starting with trusting my ability to create Brave and Beyond........

Ever get the feeling that your life is not your own, created from others expectations? The feeling of not really living or being yourself for fear of not being good enough in others eyes or beliefs. We neglect ourselves, our hearts and dreams so much that we are floating along doing things or thinking things that we have come to believe that we "should or must' do and think? Is this why depression, addiction, abuse, low self esteem and many other negative problems are on the rise?

Do you ever stop and think 'this is my one life!' 'What do I want?' ' What do I believe?' and then get hit with a million excuses why not to explore the questions, or feel guilty of possibly being selfish? Expectations create FEAR... Feelings of insecurity, limitations, supression, anxiety, the list goes on. We all experience it and the question is how do we overcome it and start confidently being ourselves and finding our own uniqueness?

We can intend to recognise our feelings and act in a way that bests supports ourselves, as it is not a selfish act just self respect! We can acknowledge our own strengths and opinions for it is not egotistical just confidence! We can allow ourselves a choice without guilt, it is our choice!

Do you have expectations over others? How do they affect your relationships? We can start by lifting our expectations off those around us and see the change.. Allowing others to be themselves will inspire you to embrace uniqueness and possibilities.........and to LOVE unconditionally, after all isn't that what we are really wanting??

The power of acknowledging yourself is something so inspiring and boosting to your self esteem..

How often do you acknowledge yourself for all that you do??

The past 2 weeks I have been writing 10 positive acknowledgments each day and boy the power of doing this is valuable. It is fantastic for my self confidence, self respect, self awareness and self love. To recognize and acknowledge the things I do, feel and achieve throughout the day encourages me to do more tomorrow. Being a single mum with 3 magnificent boys and building a business out of nothing is really overwhelming, exhausting and extremely exciting. Doing these acknowledgments gives me the fuel and inspiration to keep following my passion. It helps me to believe in myself and be proud of what I do. Something that we humans neglect to do for ourselves and often have never and will never do for ourselves. Self praise is not to be egotistical or self centered, rather just confidence! Confidence in the decisions you have made for yourself, confidence in what you do each day. Instead of looking for approval or appreciation from others, find it within yourselves, it really does mean so much more.

Try it, 10 acknowledgments per day and see the positive change in you!!!!
Start by saying - I acknowledge myself for.......................................................

The Power Of Choice

I have become very passionate about spreading the awareness of CHOICE. Choice provides opportunity, awareness, personal power and intention. It is always there in every situation, whether it would be a choice to take action, a choice relating to behaviour, a choice to change, a choice to move forward, a choice to ask, a choice to express and so on... I could go on forever!! Our choices create the life we live, the choices we consciously make and the ones we sub-consciously make. Taking personal responsibility for yourself, your life and your actions creates choice. It builds confidence and independence. I hear people say 'I have no choice' or they blame others or events for their situations. They give away their independence, their self worth and live with the expectation that there are no positive choices, that they only get what life dishes out to them. Realising that you have a choice, that the choices you have made have created your life as it is now, is the first step. Embracing choice , deciding, creating intention, and living a life you want, is the POWER OF CHOICE. Where do you feel you have no choice in your life right now? Open your awareness and explore, the choices will appear COMING SOON - THE POWER OF CHOICE WORKSHOP Vicki x
