I Believe I Can Fly – Can U?

December 8, 2011

I Believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky. 

If I can see it, than I can do it. 

If I Just Believe It, There’s nothing to it.  I Believe I can FLY! (R. Kelly)

These are the Lyrics I found myself playing, incessantly, last night.


Because I needed to digest this truth. I wanted motivation to move my own mountains.

Do YOU ever find yourself doubting your abilities? Have You recently had a moment where you wanted to move forward – but out of fear of failure – you shrunk back?

I hate to admit it, but I certainly have.

I doubted me.

That is, until I remembered Who I am and Whose I am. I am a Child of the Most High. The One who makes the Impossible  Possible. The One Who orders my steps and forces me to correct my mistakes.

Was that a little haughty? Well, I won’t apologize for truth. This attitude, this notion of invincibility is one we ALL must take up in order to reach our highest potential.

Life can be tough. And in preparation, just accept that it will be sometimes. These are moments to get grounded and centered. It’s in these moment’s You have to pull out your best self – if you don’t operate as such already. You have to know yourself. Know what you’re working with. Know Your strengths and acknowledge your weaknesses.

Everything is about partnership. What your natural hands can’t do — but life commands you to do — you have a tool available to partner with. It’s a truth proven self-evident that we are equipped with all we need for living.  This tool may be access to a resource that can handle the task, or a friend that completes your strength. Your job is to trust that you are fully equipped to handle your dilemmas – either by natural ability or access to resources.

And let me also disclose that I have not mastered this art. I too, sometimes forget I have self power and access to resources, usually because I’m too prideful to admit I have a need outside of my natural ability.

Most of you can relate. We, when unwilling to speak on our needs go in hiding. We shrink back and pretend to not know there is a matter that requires our attention.

Marianne Williamson said, ” your playing small does not serve the world” and “there is nothing enlightened about shrinking back.”

I know this. You probably do, too. But still, for whatever reason, we do shrink back. We do play small.

For some odd reason, us human folks operate this way. We largely react in fear instead of living with love and truth. 

Some of us knowingly surround ourselves with people, thoughts and things that limit our Self Belief.  We like to have a reason to shrink back so that we don’t have the responsibility of proving our abilities to succeed. 

Reality Flash. We’ve lived in that darkness [shrinking back] too long. It’s about to be 2012. It’s time for us to start taking bold actions based on bold beliefs.

So Today, let us BOLDLY accept the challenge of striving to reach our personal perfection – for being all we were created to be. Let’s start a movement of SELF BELIEF. After all, the best way to persuade the world that you are an able body is to be an able body.

Are you an ABLE Body? Of course you are.

Can  YOU Do ALL Things? Of course You can – with a little inner strength.

I Believe You Can FLY. I Believe It’s Time To Try.

Simply put; I BELIEVE.

It’s plowing time. Time to dig up what hasn’t worked, shake up the soil so you can plant seeds that will grow RIGHT fruit – things in line with your purpose. Your Gift.

Do you Believe? Let me know what your Self Belief has you propelled to do differently — with your wings stretched as far as they can go (no shrinking back allowed) in 2012. Did I mention it’s plowing time?
