I’ve been receiving a good, morning motivational message every morning for the past month. I use the word “receiving” because every time I read it, I take away a different message; a new part is highlighted and resonates with me for that particular day.
I have noticed how simply reading these words has changed my perspective and understanding of things.
I strongly believe that if you incorporate this reading into your morning routine, you’ll start the day off with a positive high note.
A good morning motivational message for your morning routine
Adapted from A Leader’s Prayer for Success by Dr. Cindy Trimm
Dear universe, ancestors, and spiritual guides,
I rise today in total dependency upon you
Declaring the cancellation of all evil decrees
Over my year, over my life, my family, my business, my possessions, my projects, my purpose, my neighborhood, my loved ones, my relationships, my community, my government, and over my nation.
Let every evil decree be replaced by your original plan and purpose for my life.
I arise today to take my rightful place in this world
Shield me against persecution, false accusation, seduction, compromise, falsehoods, slander, greed, discouragements, frustrations, sabotage, accidents, death threats, mishaps, and manipulations.
I decree that this year is filled with strategic encounters
This year is pregnant with purpose, promise, potential, wonderful surprises, supernatural breakthroughs, and miracles.
The best of my today will become the worst of my tomorrows
And every day shall be sweeter and sweeter than the day before
I decree and declare this moment is my defining moment
Marking the ending of a sad history
And the beginning of a prosperous, debt-free, disease-free, and depression-free destiny.
I declare that I will forever live under an open heaven
I thank you for granting me strategies for a prosperous and successful living.
Fill my mind with wisdom and knowledge of my true identity
I decree that I am empowered to accomplish all that I was born to do
And become all that I was born to be
That my mission be clear and my vision is unobstructed
That my intentions are pure, my motivations are solid, and my relationships are healthy.
I will make my mark and leave a legacy for the next generation
I will live in a prosperous and healthy environment
Everything I touch will turn to prophetic gold
My life, my family, and my friends will be blessed with joy, peace, prosperity, success, and all good things as abundantly as the stars at night.
Friendship, favor, affluence, influence, happiness, support, beauty, purpose, and abundant living are my constant companions.
I am unconditionally loved, celebrated, revered, appreciated, and honored beyond all measures of human comprehension.
Grant me true, lasting, mutually-beneficial relationships, friendships, associations, alliances, networks, partnerships, and support.
This is the year of innovation for me.
My creations, inventions, products, goods, and services, will be in high demand globally
I ask that I will be firmly placed at a comparative advantage and given a competitive edge. I will be distinguished amongst the greats, the influential, and the powerful.
My good name precedes me and all my goals are achieved.
Grant me wisdom for successful negotiation skills and power to subdue negative energies.
All that is owed to me
May it be released to me now
My blessings, wealth, and victories are like the stars, too numerous to count.
Let lack, struggle, and poor health be a distant memory of the past
I will be fruitful in all of my endeavors
Grant me multiple streams of income
Let me navigate these streams with a positive energy that gives me business savvy.
Let economic and financial times turn in my favor
Let me be an agent of light and truth in the world of darkness
Let me be the change I want to see
That no one will meet me and not be positively impacted
Let my gifts continue to flourish.
This is the beginning of the best of my days.
I am not an incident nor an accident
My destiny is determined by my decision
There is no such thing as a coincidence
There is a direct correlation between the decisions I make today and the reality I will experience tomorrow
Therefore I choose to make every decision with love.
I will not allow the action of others to instigate or justify bitterness, hatred, resentment retaliatory action, or negative reaction within me
I choose love
I choose to live without the need for revenge and to live free from regrets.
I choose to love myself unconditionally and from this place love others
I refuse to see anyone as anything less than human beings
I choose to move beyond the hurts and the disappointments of my past and to give myself permission to lovingly embrace all that I am.
I choose to put my best foot forward and squeeze every second out of every hour.
Instead of clenching my fist at a new assignment or responsibility, I will face them with joy and courage knowing that they are opportunities divinely given to me to maximize my potential.
I invite you to be a part of every decision and situation.
I refuse to be cynical or depressed
Upset or distracted by obstacles
For they serve me no purpose
You are the embodiment of the impossible
And with you all things are possible
I choose peace
I choose to live in the realm of forgiveness so I may live without torment.
I am thinking of all things that are positive, just, pure, lovely, good, and praiseworthy.
Although today I will have every opportunity to think otherwise
If I find myself in a negative place, please remind me to think of all positive things.
I choose patience, I have a fearless spirit, the power of love, and soundness of mind
Therefore I will not be anxious for anything but I will patiently wait
I will overlook the inconveniences of this world
And instead of being deceived into believing someone wants to take my place
I will not be seduced into believing that that place can be taken
I have no need to curse those who attempt to undermine my purpose
Instead, I perceive them as individuals who desire to do more and to be more even as I desire the same
But they may lack the knowledge to understand how to get what they want without fighting
So I ask that they may find it.
When I ask for answers, breakthroughs, and opportunities for divine intervention
Rather than complain that the wait is too long
Let me use those precious moments as opportunities to prepare for my future
To hone my skills or to help someone else to do the same
I will not be anxious
I choose to be kind to the poor, the orphans, those who mistreat others, and those who others perceive as mean for they believe that they are alone.
I will give to those who can never repay
I will go without before taking a dishonest gain
I will be overlooked before I boast
I will confess before I accuse
I will keep my promises
My debtors will not regret their trust
My associates will not question my word
My family will not question my love
My protégés will never fear that their mentor will not be there for them when they need it most
I choose gentleness
Since nothing is won by force I choose to be gentle
If I raise my voice may it only be in praise
If I clench my fist may it only be to grab a handful of blessing to bestow upon others
I choose humility and meekness
I recognize that all my blessings, my opportunities, my success, and prosperity come from you.
So with all humbleness, I say thank you
Thank you for entrusting me with these gifts
With my personality
And with endless opportunities
Thank you for entrusting me with everything.
I’m a spiritual being living in a natural body
Let me not overindulge in any act or substance that will dishonor or desecrate this temple
Let me be drunk only with joy and peace and righteous living
Let me influence others to live a better life.
I choose not to employ the tools of second-guessing, laziness, and procrastination
I choose to approach every day with deliberation
And act based on vision, goals, and my personal dream for making this world a better place.
I choose to live a life that is dynamic.
I refuse to use alibis
I am the one that makes the decisions and I refuse to use others as an escape for my personal responsibility
I thank you because I’m choosing this day to rely less on others and more on myself and you.
I choose to be patient with everyone
I choose to live by the fruit of the spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
I choose blessings
I choose life
I choose abundance
I choose success
When I succeed I will always give thanks
And if I fail, remind me that there is always an alternative strategy
And when the day is done and I lay my head to rest
I will awaken to another day with more opportunities to take my life out of neutral and live the life of my dreams.
