We spend hours and hours dwelling and ruminating on the negative and fearful things in our lives. We worry about what could go wrong, instead of focusing and paying attention to the rational, the positive and the good. We should train ourselves to focus on thoughts that will move us forward in the right direction.
Here are some things we should occupy our minds with everyday:
1. I AM GOOD AT EVERYTHING THAT I DO
Nobody is perfect, but you ARE perfect when you give your all and try your hardest to be your best self. By telling yourself that you are good at everything you do, you will slowly begin to realize just how special you are. You will also give birth to this beautiful voice inside your head that will encourage you along the way and help you feel unstoppable, no matter what life throws at you.
2. TODAY IS AN AWESOME DAY
Set the intention as soon as you wake up that today will be an awesome day! Things can go wrong or maybe not go as you planned for them to go, but by saying to yourself throughout the day that today is an awesome day, you will begin attracting awesome things to come your way. Don’t just say it… believe it!
3. I CAN HANDLE MORE THAN I THINK I CAN
This is a powerful affirmation. Empower and uplift your spirits throughout the day by thinking and believing that you can handle anything that you set your mind too. You can handle more than you think you can. If you’ve come this far, go farther.
4. I WILL SEE THE GOOD IN EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE
Being in a mental state of thanksgiving will help brighten any rainy day. Rather than scolding the driver who cut you off on your way to work, see that he was probably in a rush too. Rather than feeling bitter towards your friend who started flirting with your crush, see the good that maybe the guy is all wrong for you and it’s better that you don’t pursue him. It’s really tough to see things “glass half full” but just try it and see what happens.
5. NO MATTER WHAT, I LOVE MYSELF
Above all, tell yourself how much you love you. Even if everyone to your left and everyone to your right is against you, you will only be able to make it through the storm and see the rainbow on the other side if you love yourself above everything else. When someone has self-love, that someone is unstoppable.
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Happy positive thinking!
