You already have the power within you. The past failures. The past mistakes. The past heartbreaks… Let them go! Stop letting things from the past weigh you down and paralyze you from tapping into the amazing God-given power that is within you.

Directing your focus on everything that went wrong in your life will do nothing but keep you exactly where you are. If you want to move forward in life, which I am sure you do, you must be willing to press forward and focus on all of the positives in your life. The power within you can’t be fully realized and deployed unless you regularly celebrate your uniqueness and inherent greatness.

The seeds of greatness are planted in each and every one of us. That is where the power within you resides. Being able to completely understand and acknowledge that. Not in some of us, but in all of us. We all have big dreams and strong desires. Things we want to accomplish, things we want changed, and things we want to do throughout the course of our lives. But so often, life has a tendency to get in the way. Big plans never fall through. Tragedy strikes once again. This can create an atmosphere for settling to take place. Settling for second-best and less than what you deserve.

Don’t ever settle for second-best. Don’t put the power and greatness that are already within you on hold. We are all here for a purpose. Nothing in life is a waste, and most certainly not yourself. Instead of focusing on the losses in your life, focus on the wins. No matter how big or small they may be, get in the habit of counting your blessings. Your wins. The moments of pure happiness.

Do everything in your power to get your fire back. Claim your greatness and recreate your swagger. Develop and search for a deeper meaning for your life. Continually put yourself in a positive, faith-filled environment everywhere you go. Don’t wait for others to do good until you do good; take initiative and set the tone. Be the leader you were born to be.

The message that I hope to get through to you today is that you are already equipped with everything you need to make your life phenomenal. To make your life a masterpiece and leave a spectacular legacy that lives much longer than you do.

Don’t wait any longer to speak, and think victory over your future. Every day, remind yourself how powerful you truly are. Say over and over to yourself, “I am a winner. No loss or defeat can override the greatness that is already within me. I am blessed with an overwhelming amount of joy.”

And don’t ever forget. You already have the power within you.
