How do your thoughts impact your life? Are you cognizant of what you think about? What you tend to focus on? How those thoughts affect you and others around you? Do you live and maintain a positive mental space? Your thoughts control how you feel and what you say and do. So if you are constantly thinking negatively, your reactions and outcomes will more than likely be negative too. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with positivity. I use positive affirmations to bring inspiration, motivation and build up my confidence and you should too!
Have you ever heard the term you are what you eat? That doesn’t just apply to food. Seriously, you should be filling your whole body with goodness, including mentally. Positive affirmations is one way to accomplish this. So what are positive affirmations? They’re statements made to uplift you! But not just any positive statement will work for you. Look for statements that you find true meaning in. Statements that are personal to you and your journey. I mean specific to you, your needs and wants. Statements that you truly find continued inspiration in. Statements that speak to you and that you are willing to speak!
In many of my posts, I continue to advocate for the importance of self-care. And self-care includes self-awareness. Are you aware of your mental intake? Life can be challenging and allows for undesirable thoughts. But positive affirmations has helped me maintain optimism. Don’t get me wrong, I fall at times, but I do believe in my ability to succeed through anything. I tell myself, it’s okay to have a weak moment and maybe some days, I’m completely on the floor. But I know that I have to get up! Have you heard of Les Brown? He has many quotes that I love. But one that resonates with me more often is “if you fall, fall on your back, because if you can look up, you can get up.” It doesn’t matter how many times or how often you fall, continue getting up!
I would also say that positive affirmations make you self-reflect. Self-evaluation is necessary. Take the time to look at areas in your life that could be improved or changed or even removed. Write down these affirmations and keep them handy. Use positive affirmations that challenge your insecurities and helps you minimize, if not eliminate them. Positive affirmations build confidence. They will keep you inspired and motivated.
Use positive affirmations to continually find greatness in yourself. Use positive affirmations as reminders. Use positive affirmations to condition your mindset to remain positive. Say it with me, I am allowed to have dreams, and goals, to believe in possibilities and to take chances. I am willing to try. I am enough and I do matter. Tell yourself this every day! I do and it makes a difference in the person I am.
