Words matter. If you don’t believe it, read this post.
People use words in a very targeted way, and if you recognize that your confidence and self-esteem levels aren’t where they should be, changing what you say to yourself can be a great way to start your journey to a more confident you.
Affirmations are positive, specific statements that help you fight negativity. These statements can help you you to visualize, and believe in, what you’re saying, or affirming yourself. Doing this over and over again can help to make positive changes to your life.
You might be thinking that you’re strong, and words won’t help you anyway, so what’s the point?
Well, you have the power to control your thoughts, and if you think you’re not enough you can change that. If you think you don’t have what it takes you can change that. If you think you’re undeserving you can change that.
Once you become aware of the connection between your thoughts and your reality, you’ll make the effort to change it. Affirmations can help you change your thoughts and change your life.
If you’re not sure where to start, or what you can say to help inspire confidence, these affirmations can help:
- Beauty isn’t something I have; beauty is something I am.
- I release negative thoughts about myself.
- I love who I am.
- I validate myself.
- I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
- I am worthy.
- My life is limitless.
- I approach new experiences with boldness and enthusiasm.
- My life is rewarding.
- I live in joy.
- I am strong and capable.
When your confidence increases, you happiness increases.
Repeat as many of these affirmations as you need to, as often as you need to. Just as you build muscles through repeated exercise, you will build your confidence through repeating affirmations and allowing them to penetrate as truth.
