You Are What You Say You Are

What you are, so is your world.”James Allen

You are what you say you are. Your words can make or break you. So what exactly are you saying to yourself? What are you telling your friends about yourself? What are you telling people about yourself? What are you telling your boss about yourself? What are you telling your mind about who you are? Is it positive? Or is it negative?

Remember that what you tell people about yourself is how they will treat you. If you tell people negative things about yourself, they will treat you in a negative way. But if you tell people positive things about yourself, they will treat you in a positive way. According to Dr. Phil, “We tell people how to treat us.” Yes, he is right. We tell people who we really are by the way we present ourselves.

“You are the way you are for a purpose. Stop trying to be someone you are not.”

If you want people to know the best about you, you must think you are the best. You must tell the world the best about you. You must value yourself. Respect yourself. No matter what is going on in your life, do not belittle yourself. Don’t think you are not good enough. Never! You are good enough. You are smart. You are intelligent. Remember, you are the way you are for a purpose. So celebrate it. Don’t compare yourself to others. They have their own problems. You have yours.

When you value yourself, people will value you. If you don’t value yourself, people won’t value you. If you say you are worthless, you are. But when you say you are the greatest, you are. Understand that people will not respect you more than you respect yourself. If you want people to value you, you must first value yourself. Because you get what you think you worth.

No matter what is happening right now in your life, you are strong. You can overcome. Never doubt yourself. Believe in yourself. James Allen said, “He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure.” Always believe in yourself. Don’t give in to fear. Don’t give in to doubt. They are negative. They are here to steal your life away from you. Do not let that happen to you.

When you say good things about yourself, good things follow. Good things follow good things. Bad things follow bad things. Always say important things about you. Always describe yourself in a positive way. If you don’t have anything good to say about yourself, shut your mouth!
