The “I AM” statement is a particular powerful one that is active in your life. You might not notice how often you are saying it, or where it is informing your life. Are there conversations going on in your head that say “I am not good enough” and “I am not strong enough” based on people in your past. Often, people who have been in positions of authority in our lives have shaped our impression of ourselves. And we believe it, then it becomes firmly engrained in our psyche, and it is informing us in our daily life, and often it is negative Now is the time to change all that! YOU are in control, not your parents, or your third grade teacher, or a mentor you looked up to.
