Using Affirmations in Your Personal Development
At some point in our lives we have all faced a time where we were struggling. Maybe you were facing a broken relationship, job loss or some type of a less than desirable situation. This article will offer some insight and advice concerning using affirmations within your personal development to lift you back up.
If you want to have a more positive attitude, then create positive affirmations that you wish to live by. Affirmations are essentially positive thoughts. Living with a positive attitude will help lead your mind to a positive action, which could change your behavior, attitudes, habits and reactions for the better.
You know how your day can turn out when you have a negative attitude. Your attitude and actions do not produce the results you were hoping for. Next time you wake up grumpy take a moment to acknowledge three positive things in your life and then carry those with you the rest of the day.
When you hear that little voice in your head, it is just your subconscious talking to you. Those words you hear are called your inner affirmations or better known as your inner voice. Some of these may be positive, and some may be negative. The goal is to concentrate on the positive ones and work to eliminate ones that are negative.
Positive affirmations – like “I can do this!” – help many people to find the quick motivation that they need to keep up their spirits. These help you to feel confident; be able to accomplish more; and grow as a person. Use positive affirmations to keep you focused every step of the way.
Positive affirmations can be a powerful tool for your personal development, but not if you speak them with zero passion, engagement or energy. Always get emotionally involved when you repeat your affirmations to yourself. Whenever possible repeat your affirmations out loud and in front of the mirror. You may feel silly at first but this will produce the greatest results.
When you are struggling with self-negativity or the negative energy others have put onto you use positive affirmations to expel that negativity. To do this try creating five to ten affirmations that emotionally resonates with you. Then get in front of that mirror and belt them out like a song you love.
If you are not sure how try create them try using affirmations like “I am strong”, “I believe in myself,” “I am healthy,” etc. Anything that helps reinforce the type of person you are or believe you want to be. It really helps increase your self-worth and personal strength when you use positive self-talk this way.
Learn to love yourself – don’t just wait for negativity to happen but create the daily habit of standing in front of the mirror and repeating positive affirmations that you give you confidence, strength, and support. An optimistic outlook is a powerful tool that can have significant benefits for the mind, body, and soul.
Anything that happens to us in life is an opportunity to learn and grow. Sometimes it is hardship that causes the learning, and sometimes it is extreme fortune that results in growth. However it happens, personal development is the key to leading a successful, happy and fulfilling life.
Like Socrates says, “The unexamined life isn’t worth living.”
