Four words. The opportunity is mine.
Or in this case, yours. Cause you’re saying these words to yourself.
Everytime someone out there triggers you. Or you trigger yourself by listening to that quiet judging voice inside that makes you feel like there’s something wrong with you. Something you gotta fix or change. Bla bla bla. That’s what I say to that voice.
Say, The opportunity is mine.
These four words can return you to your place of power. Empowerment. Center. Joy. Possibility.
Here’s why. The best and most monumental good we can create in this world, begins inside each of us.
And radiates out.
Start where you are. Nothing to fix. Nothing to change. You are perfect in this juicy, alive, wonderful moment.
If you find yourself (as I oft do) projecting a bunch of crappy thinking onto the beloved souls who people my world, stop and smile. Whisper conspirationaly to yourself, the opportunity is mine.
Those projections are but mirrors reflecting back your own inner dialogue with yourself.
I know, but don’t worry. Now that you’ve seen that barefaced lie, you have opportunity to tell a new story.
Hence, the opportunity is mine.
P.S. If you’re new to the word projection, I’ve written about it here.
P.S.S. In case you’re wondering, as I was. about the word barefaced lie:
A falsehood told with utter confidence and without trying to conceal the fact that it is false. Yep, that’s what we’re talking about.
Coined in the late 1600s. At that time, bare meant brazen or bold. Also, at that time in history, almost all men sported a full set of whiskers. It was considered daring or even audacious for a male to be clean-shaven, or barefaced.
P.S.S.S. Some beauty to project upon yourself before you go…
