You will never try out for basketball if your image of yourself is too short. Becoming a cheerleader will never enter your mind if your image of yourself is too fat.

The picture you create in your mind of yourself is who you will most likely believe that you are. Close your eyes for a moment and picture who you believe you are at this moment. Once you get a candid picture in your mind, try one of these two suggestions. (1) if you are pleased with it, save it in your memory (2) if you are not pleased, erase it. Now, picture who you would like to be.

Creating a good self-image is as easy as creating a bad image. Erasingrepparttar bad image from your mind is simple as creating a good image. Try it.

Many years ago, I was trying to catch one of these butterflies. I saw one flying toward me. I was sure that I was going to be able to capture it. However, just before it got to me, it landed onrepparttar trunk of a tree. Even though it was only a few feet away from me when it landed, I could not see it again until if flew. I walked over torepparttar 127017 trunk ofrepparttar 127018 tree and looked carefully at allrepparttar 127019 shrubbery aroundrepparttar 127020 tree, but I could not see it.

God is very good at taking care ofrepparttar 127021 Morpho butterfly. Although very easy to see, it is very hard for any predator to catch. God is very good at taking care of us too.
