Who do you know that reflects a “Magnificent Self?” We all know someone. Oprah is a prime example of someone who embraces her Magnificent Self. She uses her passions and multitude of resources to motivate and inspire others. She shines her light brightly into places of darkness to wake-up the world, call together other bright lights and beckon us all into oneness. It is important to know that we each have a Magnificent Self waiting to be expressed and shared with the world. It is a Self that comes from within. You can’t stand in the bright light of another Magnificent Self and become Magnificent, it doesn’t work that way. People of Magnificence ask you to cultivate and develop the qualities of greatness within so that you can become your own Magnificent Self! Where do you begin? Here are just a few qualities that define a Magnificent Self:

1. Take 100% responsibility for yourself and your actions:
You are 100% responsible for your perceptions, reactions and your responses to life. You are 100% responsible for how you experience the events of your life. When you are willing to take full responsibility for life, you no longer blame or accuse others for things not working in your life. You are empowered to make apologies, clear up misspoken conversations and make amends quickly. You commit your energy to bringing life together in a healthy, loving flow.

2. Live in the Spirit of Abundance
Being in the flow of abundance is key to knowing there is always enough. “Enough” is measured in terms of ideas, creativity, time, money, opportunities, and of course love. Letting go of a belief in “lack” or “not enough” is paramount to being a Magnificent Self. It also supports you in letting go of having the desire to compete or have more. As you claim your plenty, you are able to take all you need and give back more knowing there is always enough.

3. Gratitude is a Magic Key
Living with an “attitude of gratitude” gives you an open perspective of life. Gratitude keeps the energy of life flowing. Gratitude is the key that helps you breathe in life more fully and allow its experiences to expand both your inner self and your vision of possibilities.

4. Know the Divine Paradox of Life
Understanding this concept plays a tremendous role in how you navigate life’s speed bumps. Situations that appear to “get in your way” are the very experiences you need to “overcome” in order to get where you are going. The journey to expressing your Magnificent Self happens one-step-at-a-time. When you become sidetracked, discouraged or stuck and begin to spin your wheels, step back and be 100% responsible for your perception. As you change the energy of the little things that “get in your way,” you are actually taking the next step forward.

5. Live by a Higher Wisdom
Living by a higher wisdom lets you know you are an intricate part of life’s complex puzzle. When you connect to your higher wisdom, you are linked to your Magnificent Self. Living in this consciousness supports you in thinking “outside the box” and in creating habits that supports life, not take it away.

6. Your Life is Your Message
Knowing that entire your life’s purpose is to deliver a message, you are committed to giving your Magnificent Self back to the world as a gift. Your life has a higher purpose and meaning. You are authentic. You walk your talk. You practice what you preach and you know you are making a difference in the world; shining your light on others so they too have the opportunity to experience living as their Magnificent Self!

Take a moment and remember, you cannot be an audience member to become your magnificent self. Being on Oprah or simply listening to her messages isn’t the answer. Thinking like Oprah is. You must be a participant in your own life’s story, deliver your own messages and generate your own light. Only then can you truly reflect your Magnificent Self.
