Believe It Or Not

by Kris Pitcher

Have you ever thought yourself into a bad mood? Or into a good mood? Well, believe it or not, you are what you think you are.

The trouble is, we don't use this to our advantage. We should. There is an art to believing in yourself with humility. Projected in the wrong spirit, it comes across as horribly conceited. Yuck!

What I'm talking about is different. It's internal. It's about believing you can do things and believing you deserve certain things. Deserving to be treated a certain way for example vs. having things. It's about what you will tolerate in your life. What you believe you are worth.

You have the power to believe yourself to be anything you want. That is an amazing thing. I look at artists who re-invent themselves.

Madonna was the Queen of that, and now we have Lady Gaga. Marketing marvels of believing themselves into existence over and over.

We have the power to re-invent ourselves too. A big part of that is what baggage we carry around. You can choose to identify yourself with your baggage, to identify yourself by it...or not. It's entirely up to you.

To choose that power takes courage. You have that courage. You can believe it or not. You are able to think yourself into re-invention, identify who you are and choose what defines you.

You have that power within you, that courage. You just have to believe it. I meet amazing strong men and women all the time who teeter on the edge of that courage. It's not easy to stay connected to it. Maintaining that connection takes a little bit of work. I believe you can do it!
