The Declaration

A Poem by Robin Sharma
#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title
Today, I declare I am strong and brave, not timid nor weak

“Today I declare that my past will no longer limit my future and just because I couldn’t achieve something yesterday doesn’t mean I won’t do it this day.

Today I declare that I’ll honor my talents, express my gifts and reveal my creativity to everyone around me.

Today, I declare I’ll be loyal to my values, respectful of my mission and fiercely focused on my dreams.

Today, I declare that I am a maker versus a consumer, a giver versus a taker and a visionary versus a victim.

Today, I declare that I will always be part of the solution and never part of the problem.

Today, I declare that when I fall, I will certainly rise and when I’m in doubt, I will persist.

Today, I declare that I will cherish my health, feed my mind and nourish my soul.

Today, I declare that I am surrounding myself with people who are smarter, faster, stronger and better than me so I am uplifted by their models and inspired by their examples.

Today, I declare that I set the standard in my work, am becoming the icon of my industry and a legend at my craft.

Today, I declare that I adore my family, am grateful for my friends and am an encourager to all those who are blessed to cross my path.

Today, I declare that this New Year is MY year. My time to grow, excel, laugh, love, win, believe, persevere and serve, knowing that I am truly the leader of my fate, the owner of my results and the hero of my destiny.”

This is the Gospel according to Dixx.

Robin Sharna

Hey world, the other day I complained about getting daily emails from Robin Sharma (well his marketing people, database yada yada). I don’t usually read the mails especially since I had UnSubscribed and was getting irritated that they still haven’t removed me from their data base. Well today, 4 Feb 2014, I just got another email, but because I had just been studying and doing some online works assessments, I’m not sleepy, so the email notified flashed red and I opened the email. It goes thus, NB; Robin refers to me as if he knows me. (Don’t be fooled hake mo tsebe motho oo);

“Hi Dixx,

I’m no poet. We both know that.

But in a burst of passion and utter inspiration, I wrote a poem to remind you of your greatness as we begin the second month of this new year.

I hope you’ve made some brave new choices, some gutsy new decisions and installed some smart new habits…

…because unless you change the way you operated last year (fast), you’ll be stuck in a groove that will make 2014 a repeat of last year…

The clear reality is…

I want this to be YOUR year, the year you step into your truest power, own your highest talents and create results that are nothing less than monumental.

So here’s the poem…read it, study it, recite it and then live it…”

The Declaration:

Today, I declare I am strong and brave, not timid nor weak.

Today I declare that my past will no longer limit my future and just because I couldn’t achieve something yesterday doesn’t mean I won’t do it this day.

Today I declare that I’ll honor my talents, express my gifts and reveal my creativity to everyone around me.

Today, I declare I’ll be loyal to my values, respectful of my mission and fiercely focused on my dreams.
