Queen of Your Own Life

Willpower Coming Out of Her Ears

It wasn't about willpower; she had willpower coming out of her ears. It was about finally believing that no matter what, she was worth fighting for. - Queenisms™

It wasn’t about willpower; she had willpower coming out of her ears. It was about finally believing that no matter what, she was worth fighting for. – Queenisms™

We spent our entire young adult life believing that if we just had more willpower we’d be thinner, richer, happier, more successful and a whole slew of other  whatever-ers. If we’d spent half the time we spent worrying about how to get more willpower, engaged in working on our own self-esteem, we’d have entered our thirties as darned near perfect (*chortles to self*). Seriously, we spent decades working on finally accepting that who were are and who we’ve been has always been good enough.

In our professional and personal lives we’ve come to realize that the more personal, real, raw and honest we are, the more we attract the kinds of people, places, things and opportunities that are a fit for us and add to our happiness. Whenever we forget this, we plunge ourselves into anxiety, fear, and frustration.

Here’s a little exercise. Repeat after us (preferably as you make eye contact with yourself in a mirror):

“I believe in you. You are perfect just as you are. If there is something about yourself or your circumstances that you want to change, I will stand by you while you try. I have the willpower to support every healthy, positive, affirming choice you make. I believe in you.”

Psychological studies have shown that we can rewire our brains through positive affirmations. You are worth the effort. How did this exercise feel to you?
