I AM I CAN I WILL
I joined LAPW three years ago because I wanted to be a part of an organization that connected women personally and professionally. I wanted to meet new people, build new business connections and develop new friendships.
I’ve had the privilege of serving on the Leadership Team in a couple positions, but I am honored to serve as the 2016-2017 President. When Christie moved to Arizona I felt very strong that someone from our current leadership team should step up because we had seen incredible growth in our organization this past year and I wanted to keep that momentum going. I saw it as an opportunity and a challenge and knew I would be surrounded by a wonderful group of women that would support me.
There is so much power in the first two simple words of the quote “I AM”
What follows these two words will determine what type of life you live.
I am strong
I am less
I am healthy
I am attractive
The “I AM’s” that come out of your mouth will bring into your life successes or failures.
What follows the “I AM” will always come looking for you and you get to choose what follows the “I AM”. I am strong - strength starts tracking you down. I am so worn out - you are inviting fatigue into your life.
Look into the mirror every morning and say to yourself those two words I AM followed by something positive…. I AM beautiful; I AM strong; I AM confident. I AM amazing.
Take what you have in life and make the most of it. There will never be another you.
Think to yourself……what kind of “I AM’s” are coming out of your mouth? You can either bless your future or curse your future. You can make the choice of what follows those two words.
Never say negative things about yourself. I know sometimes this is hard…..I admit I often do it to myself. We don’t have any problems criticizing ourselves but we would never criticize others. Talk about the way you want to be.
So your homework is to make a list of your “I AM’s”.
Remember what follows the I AM will come looking for you.
So for the upcoming year…..whatever the circumstance….I am going to live by my motto and my theme for the year: I AM I CAN I WILL and I hope you will join me. You have to have the mindset that no matter what you are going through, no matter what challenges you are facing right now, that you CAN get through it and you WILL make it through it.
Remember…..I AM I CAN I WILL.
Before I close, I want to share a couple photos of my husband and I and our two “fur” babies that make up our family.
Thank you and I’m looking forward to a great year!
