Don’t Worry What Others Say About You—What You Say To Yourself Is Far More Powerful Than Anything They Could Throw Your Way

“My favorite thing to tell my 3-year-old is that the most important voice in your head is your own.

Don’t worry about how others think of you, what they expect from you, or what they say about you.

What you say to yourself is far more powerful than anything they could ever throw your way.

Tell yourself, ‘I can’t do this,’ and you won’t.

Tell yourself, ‘This is way too hard,’ and it will be.

Tell yourself, ‘I can never have the things I want,’ and you won’t.

Whenever my daughter gets frustrated and says, ‘I can’t do it!’ I calmly remind her the way we speak to ourselves is how our energy manifests.

Then, I tell her to say, ‘I CAN do it.’ Try again and see what happens. 9 times out of 10, she gets it immediately after.

The words you speak, speak your energy into existence. So, if someone tells you you can’t do something, say right back, ‘Oh yes I can!’

Your brain will believe whatever you continuously tell it, so make sure you tell it all the good things you want for your life.

Wake up and say our favorite affirmation in the Krupski household: ‘I am kind, I am loved, I brave, I am smart, I am beautiful, I am worthy, I am abundant and I am amazing.’

Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle baby! Shine so bright you blind them!”
