Welcome back to Episode #54 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s topic is on 11 I-AM phrases to transform your life. Do you ever think about what you say after “I AM”? Do you pay attention to the labels you give yourself, the names you call yourself, the ways that you describe yourself? I want to encourage you to use I AM with intention, with clarity and with absolute consciousness every time. I want you to empower yourself through the use of I AM every time, rather than sabotage and weaken yourself.
Alright, you must listen to the show to hear this amazing quotation that I found for us which is very relevant to the show. The words that follow I AM are the focus of this podcast and when you really focus on that, you can change your thoughts, your actions and with enough practice, your entire life.
Before we get into the show, I want to assure you that the habits we have developed in this area – the use of I AM – are largely driven by our culture. The standards of beauty, strength, and ability are set for us by celebrities, sports figures, super models and Olympic stars. You have to have a large fortune to be considered financially comfortable. You have to have a flat belly and large chest to be considered sexy. You have to attend certain social events to be considered sociable. Sigh. Is this not exhausting just to think about, much less perform on a day to day basis?
I am reminding you of the reality that media and culture paint for you if you allow the influence to shape your thoughts. There is absolutely nothing the matter with these standards and a lot of people enjoy them. But I’ve always felt inadequate and not quite good enough whenever I have viewed my life in this way, and hence all the negative words that have followed my own “I AM”. Today, I suggest a new way and a new pattern and I want to start us on that road by these 11 empowering I AM phrases. Are you ready?
