A Self TAG is a characteristic or quality that you believe is true about yourself and as a result, use it often in your conversations.
I am FAT
I am a ROMANTIC
I have TERRIBLE genes
I DON’T have a business sense
I am BAD with MONEY
I have a BEAUTIFUL smile
I am GOOD at diplomacy
The list can go on. As you read that list, you obviously know the point I am trying to make!
Self Tags may or may not true, to begin with. However, repeated use of these Tags will cause you to see evidence of it, that’s how Deliberate Creation works!
Pretty soon you become the TAG that YOU have set for yourself. The truth is that we don’t realize that we have brought it into our reality and then we say, ” See! I told you! This is me! I can’t help it.”
I remember earlier when my now husband used to compliment me on how good I looked, my immediate response would be; ” Are you nuts?! I have flabby thighs and I don’t have a flat stomach. And I don’t have upper body strength”
For a long time, that’s what I believed and that’s what I saw when I looked in the mirror. And the more I looked for it, the more I saw and started to become ALL that – flabby thighs, round stomach, and no upper body strength!
When I accepted and changed my Self TAG to ’ I am beautiful, strong and prefect’, I started to focus on things I could do. My focus – I work out 5 times a week, 30 SETS of Suryanamaskars before the 30 min workout, I take personal training… I am in better shape then I have ever been! And I can do 10 push ups!
We need to remember that we are prefect and unique. All the skills, abilities characteristics that you have are meant to be. YOU ARE NOT LACKING IN ANYTHING.
What are some of the TAGS you use for yourself? Ask yourself are they self-serving? Are they positive? Do they make you happy?
Keep TAGS, yes, keep POSITIVE ones. When you look at others, look for good things that you both share.
Leave a Self Tag you use BELOW or on FACEBOOK, maybe yours is something we all can use.
