I want you to know: You were born with the raw talents and raw genius needed to achieve your dreams!
You were specifically crafted and precisely born at this particular time and place to give you the best opportunity to live the life that your heart, soul, and the Still Small Voice are urging you to live.
But how do you develop the raw talents and genius that you have? By taking steps toward your dreams!
But you’re not sure about the raw resources within you—what if they aren’t enough? As you take steps toward your dreams, you’ll find depths to your talents and genius and you’ll also discover hidden gifts and creativity that you had no idea you possessed.
Remember that you are not alone. Even though you may not have mentors or cheerleaders you can turn to at this moment in your life, your local library is chock-full of how-to books, biographies, motivational and inspirational books, magazines, and other resources that can bolster you, give you ideas, and help you to take the next step.
Your homework today is to take the next step, trusting that you really do have what it takes—because you do! Trust that you’ll figure it out as you move forward. Remember to break the steps down into small pieces, ones that you’re confident you can do, then do them!
Also, let’s do a little mirror work. With a big smile on your face as you gaze at yourself in the mirror and with as much energy and enthusiasm as you can muster, repeat the following:
I have what it takes!
I can do this!
Yes I can!
Keep these statements handy during your day so you can repeat them frequently.
You can do it!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
