Self Educate Self Motivate
I have this printed out and thumbtacked beside my bed so every morning when I wake up and am reminded. It reflects to me the things that matter in my life. I would feel Honored if you printed this out or made up your own. If you need to reword a few things to make it mean something to you, then do! The point is to have a mind set, a pattern of action and thinking that creates a Spartan Day. Get your mind ready to be strong an actively positive. Get your mind ready for the world ahead. Ready to take on any challenge and ready to stand tall facing whatever is to come.
When I think of my value I think of taking care of my body, mind and soul. I set forth to make sure I take action everyday that would create a healthy mind and body. I also see self love. No Negative Self Talk. Ever. When I think of valuing others I think of making sure they are taking actions to feel and be the same way. When you are re wording and posting this creed somewhere of worth to you, be thinking of what values you have and wish to be reminded of daily.
Respect. This again touches on NO NEGATIVE Self Talk. I respect myself enough to love myself. All of myself- my past and my now. I have allowed others to take advantage of me and my loving nature. This is something that I think of when I read this passage I focus on Respecting myself enough to keep others from harming me. N sit idly and let others harm me. Meanwhile giving even those who harm me respect. Not because they are deserving but because they need it. It is found that people who will do harm to others do not see their own self worth and need love and respect. I vow to give them my respect, while maintaining my own.
Challenging myself is something I enjoy in life. I love to break a barrier and beat a goal I give to myself. This can be mental, physical or even spiritual. Currently I have two going on. One was 30 days of no sugar and no alcohol. I have survived and came out the other side with a better view of those vices. Control over the foods that triggered me into spirals of guilt. The second is 100 days of 100 push ups. I wake in the morning and do 50, then before bed do another 50. I challenge you to find something anything to work on and push through. Whether it is reading a book a week, or 100 push ups. Anything that you know will make you work hard and challenge you.
Love and Honor your family. This one sounds easy. You may think you do it enough. I challenge you to make sure your letting them know you feel this way. You may think you love them but do you say it? Make sure that when you are loving and honoring it is felt. Make sure they are the priority they deserve to be.
Fear is something you create inside your own head. Unless there is something imminent happening to you at this very moment there is no reason to create fear out of nothing. Do not allow what if's to keep you from following your hearts desire. Do not allow a possible negative outcome to keep you from trying.
Loving Yourself is the very essence of this entire Creed. If you are proud of the person you are and the way you attack your life then you will love yourself. Take action to be the person you want to be. Be Proud of this and Love You.
Self Educate yourself. Look for ways to improve on the things you need to change. Read, watch videos, meditate find what will help you. Never stop learning.
Self Motivate yourself. Wake Up Everyday with intent on accomplishing this list. Read it over and over again. Make it Happen.
