Let’s get this out of the way right now. You are not boasting when you are grateful for you.
You are not conceited when you believe there is only one you.
You are not being full of yourself when you use words like brilliant, gorgeous, stupendous.
You are not vain when you think highly of your talents.
You are not braggy when you reveal your successes and what you had to do to get there.
You are not being grandiose when you believe your purpose is to change the world.
You are not cocky when you show yourself self-love.
This is about the 3 Bs.
Be who you are. Be Grateful for You. Be proud. Know what you bring and own it.
Be still. Just be. Aware. Quiet. Allow. Surrender.
Be a person with purpose. Don’t be afraid of your purpose or success.
Be who you are. Be Grateful for it. Be proud,
Know what you bring and own it.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. - Oscar Wilde
It’s time for you to embrace you. Stop waiting to be “perfect.” You already are. Yes, with all your imperfections. With all of your challenges, successes, even failings. It’s time to own all of you. Right now.
It's okay to feel good about yourself. It's okay to say out loud "I am terrific." You just need practice saying it.
If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?
Your “Be" Practice…
List three of your successes. These can be anything at all.
What is so special or memorable about these successes?
Fill these in (and they must all be positive words):
I am _____________
I am _____________
I am _____________ Say these every morning and every evening. Out loud.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. -Marilyn Monroe
Be still. Just Be. Aware. Quiet. Allow. Surrender.
The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.- Rumi
There is so much noise all around us. We don’t take enough time to quiet our world. Think about stillness. Allow quiet. If someone is speaking, give them space.
See how long you can be silent while they speak. Even your mind needs to be still and not think of how you might respond.
When a situation occurs, surrender to it. That means accept it, and then move forward. When you give a situation space, ideas come to you. This will change your world.
Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance. - Morgan Freeman
Your “Be” Practice…
How does it feel to be still? quiet? aware? List three things:
Can you think of a time you rushed in to answer? How would that moment have been different if you were still?
Think of a challenging situation. Feel the quiet. Don’t react to it. Accept it. (I know that’s hard to do.) Give yourself space. Breathe. How does it feel to give this situation some space?
No matter how chaotic it is, wildflowers will still spring up in the middle of nowhere.
- Sheryl Crow
Be a person with purpose. Don't be afraid of your purpose.
It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.
- Winston S. Churchill
You may not think you even have a purpose. Or maybe you’re afraid to say it out loud. Maybe you’re afraid someone will laugh or judge or say you’re just plain crazy.
You have not been put here to just take up space. It’s time to realize your brilliance, your greatness, your mission.
The best way to lengthen our our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose.
- Charles Dickens.
Your “Be” Practice... Who inspires you? _________________________Why?
What do you imagine that person’s purpose is? Create a one sentence Mission Statement, starting with:
I exist to _______________________________________________.
Everyone has been made for some particular work and the desire for that work has been put in every heart. - Rumi
What's this got to do with success? Be is so key to your well being. To the choices you make. To how you think about yourself, feel about yourself. Start with Being grateful for yourself. Your success will follow.
