It’s time we started to hype ourselves up instead of tear ourselves down. Both are equally possible with how much power we have over ourselves, so why don’t we use that power for good instead of complacency or ego?
Start hyping up yourself because you fucking deserve it. We can talk ourselves down or psych ourselves out more quickly than anyone else ever could, right? There’s so much fucking power in that exercise alone, but we don’t realize it. We take our own power for granted, and why? So we stay shadows of ourselves instead of fully stepping into our power? NO THANK YOU.
You know yourself better than anyone else on this Earth possibly will. You know what makes you happy, sad, angry, disappointed, overjoyed, etc. So why won’t you use that power and energy to make yourself feel like the best version of yourself as much as possible?
Our ego speaks up and says, “No. Why change? You’ve been living life a certain way now and it’s worked out just fine, thank you very much.” But is that really true? Do you honestly feel like you’re living your best life right now?
We need to start being our own hype people. Talking to yourself like you’d talk to a friend is cliche for a reason because it’s true. Would you ever talk to a friend like how you talk to yourself in your head or journal? Probably not. So stop it, people!
Hype yourself the fuck up because you’re amazing. You’ve made it through some really tough shit, haven’t you? You’ve fought to get to where you are today in some way or another. But eventually a little voice of doubt and fear pop into your head and slowly (or quickly) start to tear you down.
Aren’t you sick of letting those negative voices win? I have a solution for you: give yourself some hype. You have almost given up so many times, but you didn’t for a reason. You have been through some really tough shit and circumstances for a reason. You are where you are today for a reason.
I genuinely believe we’re all here on this planet to help each other. What would happen if we all started to hype ourselves and other people up more? Not all the time, not in a disingenuous way, but in a real and loving way. Like, wow you guys are all amazing and I want you to know it! Even one little comment like that to a person when they really need to hear it can make a huge difference.
What if that person who needed to hear that was you? Are you allowing yourself to feel hyped about yourself, or are you only allowing in negative thoughts because they’re easier and tend to take over?
Take control over your mind, people! Your ego has been running the show for far too long, and it’s started to diminish the power you feel like you have, but that’s not true. You have all the power you’ll ever need inside yourself. You just need to feel it, know it’s true and own the fuck out of it.
Hype yourself up because you’re here right now, and that alone is amazing. Hype yourself up because you’ve said yes and no to different things along the way, and they’ve all taught you different lessons. Hype yourself up because honestly there’s no other way to live your best life, even though I know how cheesy that sounds.
Hype yourself up because you deserve it, plain and simple. If we’re always waiting on other people to tell us that we’re doing a great job or that we’re on the right path or that we’re not royally screwing things up, that takes away all of our power and gives it to other people. It makes you feel like you can’t feel positively or negatively about your life without someone else feeling the same way. Doesn’t that feel icky, honestly?
I’m tired of feeling icky, so I’m going to start changing it. I’m going to start hyping myself up more. I was just journaling after I did a reading for myself with Rebecca Campbell’s Work Your Light Oracle Cards, and my reflections on the reading turned into me hyping myself up and talking about how awesome I am. I didn’t do that on purpose, but how much fucking power would we have if we started to intentionally hype ourselves up on a regular basis?
Often we get stuck in negativity, especially in our brains and egos. We think we’re not good enough or we could’ve done better or we shouldn’t have done this or that. Why don’t we celebrate everything we have achieved despite all of the things we’ve done right or wrong?
Hyping ourselves up can seem like a daunting or even silly task at first, but it’s so freaking powerful. Pull out a notebook or journal or even the notes app in your phone and write something positive about yourself. What have you made it through that you didn’t think you would? What values do you have that you’re proud of? What have you accomplished that you are personally proud of?
Hype yourself up because you deserve it. Be your own hype person. Infect your brain and ego with positivity instead of negativity and see what happens.
You don’t have to do it every day if you don’t want. Hype yourself up as often as you feel comfortable doing, but I hope you start to do it more and more even if it’s just one positive comment a day, like, “Hey, even though that project took you longer than you thought, you still got it done. Way to go!” or “You felt uncomfortable about talking to your friend or family member about something, but you at least started the conversation even though it wasn’t easy. That’s something to celebrate!”
The list goes on, but you get the idea. You can hype yourself up about any number of things. And isn’t that better than tearing yourself down all the time?
