Ok. So when I added this tip on my How To Become More Confident post, I knew some people were going to think it was odd. But trust me, it is as important as all the others.
I am talking about talking to yourself. This may sound crazy, but it works. No, not like you’re crazy. You’ll be doing what some people call, Daily Affirmations. Positive self talk can be a way of getting you through tough times.
When I first started, I did feel a bit weird. But the more I kept going, the more I was believing what I was saying to myself and the more confident I was feeling.
The way you talk to yourself influences the way you feel about yourself, and even the way you treat others. When you tell yourself I know what I need to do to … , you immediately change your mindset from seeing things as a challenge rather than a problem. Making you a lot more confident in what you are doing.
Take a few deep breaths. Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself in the eyes. Smile if it feels natural. Say your affirmations. Slowly and clearly. Repeat them a few times, focusing on the meaning of each word. Take another deep breath allowing your body to absorb the positive feeling.
Some examples may include:
“I am ready, happy and willing to receive money.”
“I am attracting my soulmate and my life is full of love and joy.”
“I am overflowing with love, joy and positive energy.”
“I can do anything.”
“I am the healthiest I have ever been.”
“I am confident, capable, and achieving everything I set my mind to.”
“I am attracting a better, happier life every day.”
These affirmations are your new best friends, they are food for your soul. You can also write them down and stick them all over your house, to remind you of the amazing person you are. Make sure you also do them first thing in the morning. Just like a good breakfast is fuel to start the great day, positive affirmations are the daily fuel for your mind and spirit.
Daily affirmations will change the way you think about yourself and everything around you. It helps you boost your mood, helps perform better in things, it makes you aware of your thoughts, to know what you really want in life, helps reconnect with your feelings and enhance your perspective on the things in life.
Adding to talking to yourself, take care of yourself. Put on your favorite fragrance, groom yourself, take a nice long shower/bath, shave, nice makeup and dress nicely. You’ll not only smell delicious and look great, but it will for sure make you feel confident. You will feel like you are ready to tackle the world. And when you do it, tell yourself how amazing you look and feel.
So, now you know. Start being your own cheerleader, especially during times of stress or struggle. You’ll be less likely to focus on your failures when you do, and are perhaps more likely to learn from your mistakes. You’ll also have higher expectations for yourself.
Until next time my cuties!
