Affirming Our Identity!
“The biggest loss one can survive is the loss of your own self, yet you are termed as living” – Richa Chaturvedi
We all have gone through a phase where we lose something only to realize how precious it was for us. Same goes with your Identity, if you lose it you lose yourself. So how do we safeguard it? Well by – AFFIRMING OUR IDENTITY using POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS DAILY.
I have written a lot on positive affirmations, yet there is so much to explore and write about them. It is magical to see them working for you silently only to realize we achieved what we wished to. Yes MAGIC DO HAPPEN, when you AFFIRM TO CONFIRM what are your desires and aspirations. Instead of saying –
“I’m not smart enough.” say “I’m smart enough to handle ….”
“I’m a terrible public speaker.” say “I’m an amazing public speaker. When I speak, people can get enough of me”.
“I’m never going to get ahead.” say “I’m growing and succeeding with every moment”
“I’m not confident.” say “I’m confident”
Negative self-talk are self-prophecies, which we repeat to ourselves so many times that they become our reality. Positive affirmations, on the other hand, are like the rungs of the ladder that have the capacity to take you towards light. They help you overcome your resistance and self sabotaging behaviours. They empower you to have more belief in your inner strength and powers. So what are you waiting for??? In this week 6, I want you to make a habit of using positive affirmations for all your situations, to excel, grow and succeed in your life. How? Answer following question –
- What do you want to change?
- Is this Affirmation SMART? (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Bound)
- Is my Affirmation in the present tense?
- I am able to feel the affirmations?
Just be reminded that affirmations are most powerful, if they are combined with the art of visualization and goal setting. Do share your comments and views.
