My Uncle Rob would tell me that the only way I would grow strong was to declare myself stronger every day. He’d then repeat what he’d read in the bible somewhere: “Let the weak man say – I am strong.”
My uncle would go on to explain to me that I experience myself as ‘a weak man’ until I declare, one hundred times a day, “I am strong.” And, if I would say, “I am strong” enough, repeatedly and long – the weak man would go away. “Then, you’ll stand – the strong man!” He’d then pound his chest like Tarzan.
Well, that’s not off the mark. Is it not the weak, who declare themselves strong, that become the giants in the land? Is this not what is meant by the statement, “Let there be beauty where once there were ashes”? Indeed it is. Let there be joy. Stop testifying to mourning. Stop the “Woe is me” mentality, immediately. Begin now – declaring yourself to be strong, to be beautiful, to be successful, to be happy!
Only with such a disciplined statement, can the mind be transformed from a Woesome point of view to a Wowsome attitude. With this one transformation, comes a life of treasures that you never imagined.
The ‘ideal you’ is always ready to be incarnated, but it cannot birth itself true into your life until you allow it to. Drop the nonsense about your limitations.
- You are marvelously made.
- You are strong.
Declare it now. Take time to feeeeel it. When you feeeeel it you real it – you reel it in – you attract what you need to make your ideal real.
Not by might, nor by power do you transform weak to strong. You do it by putting yourself in the right mood, conjuring up the right attitude. And then, getting out there and acting as though it is so.
Have faith. Faith in what? Faith in yourself? When you come to believe in yourself, it’s easy to say, “I am strong,” and prove your feelings of inadequacy wrong.
