Do me a favor, right now. Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you. Then open your eyes. That person you just imagined? That’s who you really are. Let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it.
Have you ever been shocked by your own potential? When you accomplished something you didn’t think you’d be able to? You accomplished it because you are capable, and you’d been capable the whole time. You are that vision in your mind you see of yourself. You are that dream of you in the lifestyle you desire and imagined. You are that person who’s accomplished all those things, done all those things, has all those things… you are that person because you imagined them.
Believing is more than seeing
The purest needs and desires of our hearts are the exact manifestations of everything God has for us in our future. We want those things and dream of those things, because we are those things. Faith is the evidence of things not seen, because it is with faith that all things are possible. The truth is that we don’t believe to get or believe to become. We believe because we have already received and became. Faith is the fulfillment of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We just haven’t caught up with time, yet.
I’m going to swallow an eyeroll and sound like Tinkerbell here, but to become the best version of you, all you have to do love, is believe.
Imagine that best version of you. Take the time to mark it in your mind, sear it into your memory, and let everything you do from now on be a journey to that. Ignore anyone — including yourself who says you can’t. Because, babe, and believe me when I tell you this: you most certainly can.
