Do you have a challenging job? Do you feel stressed and insecure sometimes? Are you great at motivating others and telling them how great they are, but struggle to motivate and feel good about yourself? Positive affirmations may be a good remedy.
Positive affirmations really do work and will help you maintain a positive self-esteem. Positive affirmations are a great psychological strategy for reforming or reprogramming your self-concept and bolstering your self-confidence.
Positive affirmations can be a powerful tool to reduce stress, to increase feelings of personal power, and to support change and transition.
Here are some guidelines that will help you get started that guarantee positive results.
How to Use Positive Affirmations
Take some time and consider your intentions. Think about your long-term objectives. What would you like to see in your life? More joy? More peace? More confidence?
Draft the statements that reflect the reality you want to create. Phrase the statements as if they are already true. Make them realistic so that the subconscious mind will believe them.
Consider these: I feel peace. I am doing my best. I feel confident. I stay calm under pressure. I am a reasonable person. I can handle whatever comes my way. I can see challenges as opportunities.
Repeat these phrases throughout the day, add more to the list as you go along, and you will enjoy the benefits of positive affirmations.
Never forget to pay yourself a compliment privately, when nobody else does publicly.
Change the conversation you have with yourself. Give yourself the credit you deserve. Include some positive affirmations in your self-talk. Change the input and you will change your outcomes.
