Picturing Your Success

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
“Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind
a mental picture of yourself as succeeding.
Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade.
Your mind will seek to develop the picture.
Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.”

Author & Minister

Oh, My Goodness! I’m Becoming a Poet, and I Didn’t Even Know It!

Well, I hope that title makes you smile as often as it has made me smile.  The title for this post was my reaction to a statement I spoke to the Lord this morning, after getting out of bed!  I stated:

“Good morning, Adonai.  Thank-you for the blessings that have already come.
Thank-you for the blessings already on their way.  Thank-you for the blessings here,  for today.”

~ Michelle’Chaella’ Boddie

Scripts with “Adonai”: Genesis 15:2, Deuteronomy 10:17, & Psalm 136:3.

Chances for Success Increase with What Comes After “I”!

Chances of Success

Hello, Friends! It’s a reality that our chances of succeeding in achieving our goals is directly proportionate to our mindset, our thoughts, our self-talk. Be wise in your choice(s) of what you think and/or speak after you think and/or say, “I”.

CHANCES OF SUCCESS:
If we say “I won’t.“, the chances of success are 0%.
If we say “I can’t.“, the chances of success are 10%.
If we say “I don’t know how.“, the chances of success are 20%.
If we say “I wish I could.“, the chances of success are 30%.
If we say “I want to.“, the chances of success are 40%.
If we say “I think I might.“, the chances of success are 50%.
If we say “I might.“, the chances of success are 60%.
If we say “I think I can.“, the chances of success are 70%!
If we say “I can.“, the chances of success are 80%!
If we say “I am.“, the chances of success are 90%!!
When we say “I did.“, the chances of success are 100%!!
(The last statement is an example of Romans 4:17 NET)

What’s Thought, Said & Done

“Happiness is when
what you think, what you say, and what you do
are in harmony.”

Your Words Are Your Wand

Good day, Everyone. Here’s another great quote! This one is about the power of words we speak.:

“If anyone should ever ask if you’re enlightened …

ALWAYS SAY YES!

Same goes for being healthy, wealthy, and loved beyond imagination.

Got it?

Your word is your wand.”

~ Mike Dooley
