Be honest with yourself right now and count how many times you have ever said those words about yourself. My guess is that most people can count the times they have professed their greatness on one hand. Actually the answer is most likely zero for almost everyone.
Why is that?
Are you less than great? Are you proud to be mediocre? Or average? Or worse?
Or it could be that we are taught at a young age that even if you are great (and I think that everyone has greatness inside them) you should not tell other people because they will think you are arrogant. Or full of yourself. Or you may make people uncomfortable.
I may be in the minority, but I think the world would be a better place if people would verbalize their skills, talents and greatness…even before they know they possess them. It seemed to work well for Muhammad Ali.
The brain operates like a computer. It will be programmed whether you want it to be or not. And most programming your brain receives will be negative programming training your brain to create failure.
So we should make the decision to program our brains for success and greatness.
Still have doubts? Say these words out loud - "I am the greatest”. You can whisper the words if other people are around.
Now pause to think about how that made you feel. More energy? A little uncomfortable? Good. Being uncomfortable is often the first step to making meaningful changes on one’s life. And everyone can use a little more change and a bunch of energy in their life.
You are great. You were born to be successful and do great things. You have the combined talents and skills that are unmatched by anyone else in the world.
Meditate on what makes you great.
Don’t let fear and doubt and what other people might think creep in.
Now start telling yourself and anyone else that will listen how great you are.
