Developing Empowering Beliefs




Successful ~ Motivated ~ Self-empowered


When you hear the words, successful, motivated and self-empowered, who comes to mind?  We all know someone who fits this description.  Someone who always seem to land on their feet, everything they touch turns to gold and success just happens for them effortlessly.

But, have you ever stopped to think that perhaps there is nothing mystical about their successes or these people?  Have you wondered where they get all the energy and stamina that makes them driven and successful while others struggle painfully for just one success?

Many believe that this is simply a lucky throw of the dice… that some people are just meant to be successful while others are not.  While there are times when this could be true, most times it is not.  Success is created.  Successful people understand this better than most.

Success isn’t just a set of achievements or a combination of external factors; it is a mindset. Success is an attitude that comes from a framework of powerful beliefs and empowering thoughts. A powerful mindset makes it impossible to adapt and adjust to resistance.  What your mind thinks is subsequently created in your universe.  Your beliefs are the energizing fluid that builds a mindset that allows success to become part of your DNA.

Here are a few empowering beliefs I’d like you to test drive:



I am in charge of my life

The belief that you and only you are responsible of what you make of a given situation. Life does not happen to you but is a result of how you respond to opportunities and challenges.

I can make tomorrow better

The belief that you can change your future by your actions today is powerful. Some people are stuck in a dis-empowering mindset where they believe they have little control of their life.  This is not true.

There is a lot of opportunity out there

Successful people have their mind set on abundance and opportunity and not scarcity and lack. Trust me this makes a world of a difference. Believe that life, energy, positivity, love, opportunities, success, happiness are abundant…because they are! Decide to believe in abundance…the universe changes to accommodate.

I don’t need approval to succeed

If you are always seeking the approval and consent of others you will not get very far and you will certainly not be self-empowered. Successful people follow their beat even when others are skeptical or do not consent.

People are catalysts to success

If approached in the right way and you network with the right people, you will leverage your efforts in countless ways. You will get things done faster by getting help from others.

Positive thoughts are powerful and empowering

Successful people know very well that choosing to start a day with a positive rather than a negative outlook means having a successful day as opposed to a frustrating one. It’s all about your attitude.

I am not separate from the rest

This is a deep insight well known to the truly successful and wise. It is very common for people to believe that they are separate and cut off from the rest because of their individuality. True knowledge will tell you that everything is interconnected and success comes from acknowledging that you are not separate but one with the forces of life and the universe.

How can I use this situation?

When life derails your train, ask yourself “How can I learn from this?”  You could sit on the side of the tracks and whine about it or you can attempt to find that life lesson by observing, learning and sharpening your attitude and disposition. Life is a great teacher.  Pay attention!

Try using these mindset shifting tools and see what happens.  If you haven’t learned the value of journaling…this would be a great time to start.  Take each of the empowering beliefs I’ve shared and personalize them with your own words and experiences.  Once done, own it!  You will see how important your beliefs truly are and that success is available to everyone….go on…start writing!
