Today I ran a workshop on Self Esteem that I had a great time creating. I had even more fun facilitating it. I was in my element from start to finish (minus the moments of self-doubt and avoidance and perfectionism – and back around).
So, taking from a lesson from the class, I am celebrating my strengths using I AM statements to wrap up this experience:
I AM resourceful
I AM creative
I AM a planner
I AM able to ask for help
I AM surrounded by amazing friends
I AM good at research
I AM willing to do it “my way”
I AM motivated by making things the most fun I can
I AM able to set great intentions
I AM generous
I AM excellent at connecting.
Here is the feedback from the coordinator:
Thank again so much for coming and doing this session!!! Your gift for reaching people is an AWESOME sight to watch. God has given you a great ability to connect with people and this group of women lives has been enhanced as a result of having you cross their path.
I say a simple THANK YOU to that! (which is another lesson from today – accept compliments simply and graciously). I would also like to acknowledge that this feedback speaks directly to my CORE VALUE – Authentic and Meaningful Connection
Final note – The words placed after the I AM statement are of utmost importance. They are ‘facts’ to the brain…so make it GOOD! Please, if you have read this post…do this for yourself. It will do loads of good for YOU and those who you influence. You’re doing the world a favor.
Speaking of favors, on my way to the event, someone bumped my fender. I got out of the car, and released the woman from any obligation. I then asked her to pay-it-forward. She blessed me. Today is officially a good day!
