Our thinking shapes our experiences. Even obstacles have a value when you can recognize it. Develop convictions that will help you to feel happier and achieve more, regardless of the situation.
Consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using today to transform your life through the power of changing your thinking.
I understand my potential.
You can achieve amazing results when you put your mind to it. Feel excited about reaching your true potential.
I count my blessings.
List each thing that you have to be grateful for. Remember to include the smaller items, like warm socks or tart cranberries. Expressing your appreciation reminds you of how rich you are.
I learn from mistakes.
Make setbacks work for you by focusing on the lessons they contain. Messing up one project can teach us how to do better with the next one.
I find meaning in adversity.
Tough times can be the most rewarding phases in life. It is possible to emerge from any challenge with greater wisdom and courage. When you look back at the obstacles you've already overcome, it's reassuring to know you can handle what's ahead.
I embrace change.
Even when we want nothing to change, it's better to accept that life is a series of changes. Focus on the present moment, and prepare yourself to adapt to whatever circumstances come along.
I dream big.
Expand your wish list. Setting inspiring but attainable goals gives you adventures to look forward to each day. Believe that your dreams are possible, then take steps to get there. There is no other way.
I practice forgiveness.
Few things are more effective for lightening your load than clearing away resentment you're holding onto from the past. Set reasonable boundaries and respond with compassion when others disappoint you. Pardon yourself, too.
I give generously.
Sharing our blessings makes us all more powerful and joyful. Volunteer in your community or determine to speak kindly to each person you meet today. Buy coffee for your co-workers or give your sister a flower. Give cheerfully to someone in need.
What we believe has a powerful impact on what happens in our lives. If you believe that you can, or you can't, you're right. Adopting beliefs like the following will help make your life better.
I take responsibility.
You are in charge of your life. Hold yourself accountable for the outcomes you create. Celebrate the fact that you have the power to determine your own future.
I apply effort.
Figure out your definition of success so you know what is worth working for. Give yourself credit when you're making progress rather than comparing yourself to others.
I leverage my strengths.
You have your own individual strengths that you can draw on. Figure out what you're good at and what you want to do. Let that knowledge guide your choices.
I listen to feedback.
Ask for feedback so you can enhance your performance and show others that you respect their point of view. You grow faster when you gather solid input that you can translate into action.
I ask for help.
Build a sturdy support network. Work with a mentor. Divide up household chores with your spouse and children. Ask for help when you're stuck, or when you can't see the next steps.
I connect with others.
Moral support counts too. Surround yourself with loving and encouraging family and friends. Participate actively in your faith community. Join a club with members who share your interests, whether it is in solar power, photography, or badminton.
I recognize opportunities.
Stay alert for promising openings. You may meet a new friend while you're standing in line to buy your morning coffee.
I try new things.
Be open to experimentation. Go kayaking one weekend instead of playing tennis. Bake your own bread or knit a scarf. You may discover hidden talents.
An upbeat attitude increases your happiness and productivity. Question old assumptions so they can be replaced with a new sense of certainty about you and your future. Adopt empowering beliefs that build up your confidence and prepare you for greater success. Start today.
And my favourite:
I trust God.
Know that God loves you like you are his only child. He is good and only good and can be trusted all the time.
