Self esteem affirmations is another great tool to use if you want to improve the overall quality of your life. Not to mention that it's easy and free.
Because you can say positive affirmations to yourself all day long if you choose to. And I highly recommend it at the beginning.
Because I also believe that if you're not saying something positive about yourself your probably saying something negative. We criticize ourselves all day long unconsciously.
That's right, we don't even know were doing it most of the time. That's why positive thinking is habit you must get into if you want to have a joyous and fun filled life.
I know, I know. Everyone is preaching this positive thinking stuff but it truly is important. If you not practicing it your allow you mind to run you.
And an untrained mind will have you back-flipping and summer-salting over everything. Yes affirmations work and so does positive thinking. But if you don't want to call it that, don't. Just practicing these self esteem affirmations and decide for yourself if it's worth doing or not.
So start them today!
If you forget today...well then start again tomorrow. Self esteem affirmations will always be useful. You'll probably never out grow them. Just the words you choose to use will change as you grow.
Affirmations are nothing more than positive self talk.
And who better to get power affirmations from than Louise Hay. She is the queen of positive self talk. In my opinion anyway. You can create your own and I highly recommend that too but not in the beginning.
I don't want you to get frustrated and quit. So in the beginning it's nice to repeat just general affirmations to get started.
Here are some of her suggest -
These positive statements will help boost your self esteem but they'll also help you in all areas of your life. An affirmation will help you replace a negative thought with a more encouraging one.
And if you can, be energetic when you say these statements. Don't just say them to say them. I want you to say them like you mean it. With energy and conviction. Power and truth.
Say them out loud if you can. Obviously if you live with someone they might think you're crazy if your shouting at yourself but give it a try if you can. No, it's not necessary but it will help.
Even better is to say them out loud while looking at yourself in the mirror. It really does something amazing if you look into your own eyes when you say them.
Affirmations alone with not give you what you're looking for, which is higher self esteem. But they will replace that old record of negatively you keep playing over and over and over again in your head.
Which in return, will give you the confidence to take ACTION and action will help you get what you're looking for.
Repeat affirmations, take action and replace that old negative record in your head with an upbeat, energetic one.
And that is what will help you begin a new and adventurous life.
