When I was 10, my elementary school basketball coach, Mr. Katkin, used to have us do an end of practice ritual: We’d gather in the middle of the court, form a circle and while continuously slapping the floor repeat the phrase “I CAN DO ANYTHING IF I TRY!” 3 times in unison. It had to get louder each time we said it. Pretty powerful, right? I mean, imagine a bunch of little kids screaming that at once. Awesomeness.
At the time, I didn’t know about the real power of affirmation, yet that’s exactly what my coach was instilling in us. Today, however, I’d make one slight yet profound adjustment to this statement and declare “I can do anything if I BELIEVE!!” Language is powerful and the words we speak have a major influence on shaping our current realities.
3 TIPS TO HELP YOU BUILD SELF-BELIEF AND POSITIVITY IN YOUR LIFE:
AFFIRM IT! Come up with 3-5 “I Am..” statements that speak into your own unique power and greatness.. even if you don’t believe it YET. Repeat them to yourself every day and all the time.
GRATITUDE! The fact that we are ALIVE and breathing alone should be cause for celebration! The more you are able to be in a space of appreciation for everything around you, the more joy and abundance you’ll experience.
VISUALIZE IT! The common saying is “I’ll believe it when I see it”, but I say “I’ll see it when I believe it.” #CoachAaron #manifest #inspiration #motivation #speakit #positivevibes #affirmations #strength #abs #personaltrainer #goodmorning
