Today, be aware of the power of your mind. Give it your focus and consciously direct it. It will run away on its own, of course, but your goal is simply to redirect it back to the ways you wish to think and be.
And today, that primary focus is two-fold: present moment awareness and prioritization.
Today, your goal is to pull yourself back into now, over and over, whenever you find your mind drifting to thoughts of the past or worries or daydreams of the future; come back into now, this very moment, and once here, focus on the most important things that you need to accomplish, do and be right now.
So first, let us set those priorities. Today, do what is most important for you. If it is breaking that pattern of behavior we spoke of yesterday, then this must be your highest priority, bar none. Every moment of every day, bring yourself back into now, erase any feelings of victimization, fear or doubt, and come into a peaceful center, a place where you can fully shine and be. And in this place, consciously choose how to act.
And if the most important thing for you to do right now is to accomplish something difficult in your life, an action you must take, then let us simply face it today. Today, banish doubt from your mind and simply do it. Begin to climb that mountain. Begin to walk that long path. Begin and then follow through on doing that thing you know you must do but are dreading or avoiding. Simply do it. And every moment keep coming back to it and keeping your focus clear and direct.
In either case, either the rewiring of your brain and body for new patterns or the accomplishment of difficult things, know that time will pass, and if you bring yourself into now and do what you need to do, then time will work for you, and months and years down the line, you will look back at today and see it shine. This was the day that you took it on, that you decided you were strong enough, capable enough, clear enough, and you did it. You began the work.
Make today that day. Yes, you will encounter difficulties, perhaps even enormous obstacles. Yes, you will have missteps and mistakes. But you are strong, capable, creative and resourceful, and just beginning is half of the battle won. Once you set your intention and commitment and begin, the rest is simply responding to the challenges as they arise. And this you can do. For you have within you everything you need. And you are also surrounded by love and help, there for you whenever you come down into the present moment, into that center of peace, and ask for help and guidance. It will come.
Here is a little prayer for today
I believe in myself. I have within me all that I need to accomplish whatever it is I set out for myself to do. I am strong and capable. I am full of faith and courage. My heart is strong and my mind alert. I am centered deeply in the peace of this moment.
I believe in the help that is there for me. I am love and I am surrounded by love. I am wise and I am surrounded by wisdom.
I am power peace and love. I am.
