Thought for the Day: How Great Are You?

thought for the day how great are you 275x199“It’s hard to be humble when you are as great as I am.” Muhammad Ali  

What a powerful declaration about himself!
What is your first reaction to his pronouncement to the world?  Does it seem arrogant?  Or over the top?  Is that little voice inside your head saying, Who does he think he is?”
Well, you wouldn’t be alone.  That was the initial reaction to Muhammad Ali when he first spoke those words many years ago.  
However, let’s look at it another way.  What if it just means that he truly gets himself.  He knows who he is.
If you recall, in his youth he was absolutely clear about his power and strength as a boxer.  He totally owned his power and could regularly be heard to announce, “I am the greatest!”
He didn’t doubt for a moment that he was the best in the world.  He was completely unstoppable.  And, for the longest time, he was totally unbeatable!
Imagine harnessing that kind of power within yourself!
And imagine how different the world would be if more people truly owned their greatness…

Thought for the Day: How Great Are You?

Starting with you, imagine yourself right now owning your greatness.  What declaration do you hear yourself making about yourself?  
Taking the words, “It’s hard to be humble when you are as _________ as I am.”  Fill in the blank with what you would say about yourself.  For example:

  • “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as strong as I am.”
  • “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as smart as I am.”
  • “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as talented as I am.”
  • “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great a wife/mother/partner/lover as I am.” 

Does it make you giggle?  Do you feel a bit embarrassed?  Or perhaps uncomfortable?
Or do you sense the possibility and resonance of it?  Do you feel stronger and stand taller, with your chest out and head held high?

Notice how exciting it is to take this on in a completely opposite way than most people operate. Instead of hiding out or being ‘appropriate,’ you’re embracing your greatness.  
And if you notice that little negative voice saying, Who do you think you are?” just thank it for sharing and bring yourself back to who you really are:

You are wonderfully, magically, magnificently YOU.
