It's been a while and, now that things are settling, I'm back and ready to share something I've learned: we're all a little "SUPER" but most of us are not committed enough or confident enough to use our power. Let me explain.
I share a lot with you about my Journey to Legacy and it's no secret that the past few years have been a roller coaster ride. This year, however, I decided that I refused to continue accepting the situation I was in and that change had to come and would come. Not eventually, not soon, but TODAY. Every day I committed my mind to the idea that the changes I needed would happen. And as days went by that nothing happened I woke up the next morning convinced it would happen that day until one day it finally did. I put my faith in God and the prayers I had prayed confident that change was coming today. Now, I think many of you do this as well, trying your best to stay positive and think good thoughts about the changes you want to see in your life. I found, however, that the problem is often that we stop right there and, for me, nothing changed until I took it a step further.
For the first time I completely committed to not allowing anyone or anything change my mind about my change. I didn't allow myself to get discouraged, I didn't allow rejection to set in, I shut down anyone's negative comments or statements of doubt. I even went as far as the stop communicating with anyone whose speech brought doubt into my mind, no naysayers in my head space. And every day it got easier and the fact that nothing had changed the day before carried less and less weight. And now, today, my change is one that has caused others to want change of their own and given them a desire to pursue it.
Ultimately, I learned how to use my "super" power: The Power to Change My Own Life. How did I do it? By changing the words I spoke and the thoughts I thought to only things I wanted in my life. I stopped being committed to the things I wanted to change and confidently committed myself to actually creating the change I wanted. And you can do it too. Tap into your Inner Super and see just how much your life changes.
