You Are What You Tell Yourself You Are

Cheesy, I know. Been said to death. But really it is because it’s true.

Repeat to yourself that you feel tired and watch all the energy drain from you.

Say to yourself: I am old. I am ageing and witness youthfulness bid you adieu.

Convince yourself you can’t. You can’t start, stop, try, learn, be and see if your beliefs don’t come true.

Tell your mirror I am willing I am able- Iet’s go by the Grace of God! then wait to be amazed by the things you’re able to do!

Roar to your spirit- we are worthy we got this- trust me you’ll wonder how your fortunes so grew!

You are what you tell yourself you are, my friend, so tell yourself good things- you’ll find yourself anew.
