Affirming what is good in my life

      7 Comments on Affirming what is good in my life

““A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.” Mahatma Gandhi

What matters most is How You see yourself

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” – Dr. Napoleon Hill

Whenever something bothers me, I keep reminding myself that we cannot control people’s actions, attitudes and even events. I label it as the Three P’s (People, Places and the Past). The only thing we can control is our attitude. But it isn’t that easy. One of the choices in recovery is choosing what we want to think and using our mental energy in a positive way.

Positive thinking can be extremely difficult in stressful situations. Positive thinking does not mean thinking in an unrealistic matter or reverting to denial. If I don’t like something, I respect my own opinion. If a problem hits me, I am honest about it. If something isn’t working out, I accept reality. I don’t have to dwell on the negative portions of my experience. So here I am affirming what is good in my life.

One way to empower the good is through affirmation. They are simple positive statements we make to ourselves:

1. I am my own unique self – special, creative and wonderful.

2. My life is a joy filled with love, fun and friendship all I need do is stop all criticism, forgive, relax and be open.

3. I’m glad I am alive today.

4. I give out Love and it is returned to me multiplied.

5. Loving myself heals my life. I nourish my mind, body and soul

6. I have a wonderful husband and children and we are happy and at peace.

7. I choose to make positive healthy choices for myself.

8. I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.

9. I attract only healthy relationships

10. I prosper wherever I turn and I know that I deserve prosperity of all kinds

So when you think the world is against you, just say this:

Today, I will empower the good in myself, others and life. I’m willing to release, or let go of, negative thought patterns and replace them with positive ones. I will choose what I want to affirm, and I will make it good.

What positive statement do you say about yourself everyday? Please share.

  • When we meet life challenges, it is difficult to maintain a positive outlook. I think many times, we are surrounded by so much negativities whether from people or environment that even if we wanted to be positive about anything, it is a constant battle.

  • The positive statement that i say to myself everyday i read the self confidence formula in think and grow rich. Also i meditate. Doing those two have made a drastic improvement on myself overall.

  • We always think that life is seriously being screwed up. I always tend to have fun and screw with life.

    wow! this is something I forget to do everyday – my personal mantra.

    I don’t do self-talk anymore lately, at least not the positive ones… I think it’s time I should consider self-hypnosis.

    thanks for reminding me.

    by the way, I love the picture of the cat seeing himself as a lion.

  • I am one with Roy in appreciation to the photo of a cat seeing himself as a lion. 🙂

    Wanna share mine: “I am Deeply Loved, Greatly Blessed and Highly Favored.”

  • Yeah, why keep on thinking of negative things when we can think of positive things to happen. If we think of defeat we end up defeated but when we think of victory we are victorious. The mind is so powerful that it can control our destiny. 🙂

  • I’m glad I am alive today. This is what keeps me going! Amazing post.
