How To Feel Like You Are More Than Enough

You probably are thinking, “But of course, I believe that I am more than Enough,” but do you really?

One of the biggest human fears is that we are not enough.  Most of us started having limiting beliefs that we are not enough when we were a child and at different times of our lives. For many years I felt like I was never enough. I was always trying to seek the approval from my parents as well as other people in my life.

In my early forties I realized that the only person’s approval that I needed was my own. That was a defining moment in my life!

When you continually feel like you are more than enough, your life takes on a whole new extraordinary meaning.  One of the greatest things  is that your relationships will get even more Amazing! 

Since you go to a relationship to give and share, by feeling that you are more than enough you won’t continually be looking for the other person to make you feel better about yourself.  Another great thing is that you will have so much more to give and share and not be a person who consistently is taking from the other person in the relationship. 

Tips On How To  Continually Feel That You Are More Than Enough:
 Love Yourself Just The Way You Are:

“Everything starts with us loving and accepting who we are.”

The first step that you need to take in truly loving yourself unconditionally is to,look at yourself in the eyes in a mirror and continue to have eye contact with yourself. Repeat: “I love you very much {your 1st name}, you are perfect just the way you are.” Do this as often as possible everyday.

Also, while you are doing your mirror work, give yourself a heartfelt compliment like you would give to one of your loved ones.

Here are some affirmations that may help you to love yourself even more:

* I love and appreciate myself just the way I am * I am unstoppable * I see love all around me * I deserve love and I accept it now * As my self-love grows I have more love to share with others * I am whole and perfect just the way I am * I believe in my potential and I am proud of my abilities * I am loving, self-confident and full of joy and well-being * I am now happier and more joyful than ever before * I am worthy of having great relationships come to me * I deserve the very best and I am open to receive it * I am a very loving person and have a big open heart * I am a beautiful, loving person deserving of the best * I give and receive love easily and effortlessly * I now love myself completely, here and now * Every day in every way I am becoming more and more self empowered.

It is important to say these out loud and with conviction on a regular basis.

Be Your Own Support System:
 You may not have a support system, but now you will! By filling yourself up continually with self-esteem you will start to become your own support system.  A great exercise to do is:
In your Prosperity Journal [A notebook of any kind will do] take a clean page and write at the top, I am… Then set a timer for 5 minutes and fill in the blank as many times as possible.  Now take a look at what you wrote and you will find many reasons to believe in yourself and that you are more than enough.

You can even rewrite what you wrote on a Big index card and put it where you can see it as a reminder  of the person that you really are and why you should believe in yourself. This way when that little voice of self doubt tries to tell you that you are not enough, it will start to get harder and harder to hear it.
It is such a blessing to have the support of our partner, children, extended family and friends, etc. But just think, how wonderful it will be to have all the support that you need right inside of you to tap into whenever you need it! This way when you get it from others it just enhances what you already have given to yourself already.

Shower Yourself:
No, I don’t mean that kind of shower, which reminds me I need to take one, lol. Shower yourself with love, praise, kindness, honor, respect, compassion, trust, and yes, here’s a BIGGIE: forgiveness.

When you can start doing this consistently, your life and your relationships will take on a whole other meaning. It is okay to give yourself praise, I will say sometimes to my husband, “I am very proud of myself,” for whatever it may be.  Guess what, my husband has started to praise me, as well.
I am not saying to be full of yourself, but giving yourself the acknowledgment of doing something well is very vital. When you do so, you are more likely going to have even more things that you may attempt to do because of that.

Embrace the Amazing person that you are and tap into your true Magnificence! It is time for you to SHINE, even more so! Step into your GREATNESS! I believe in YOU!!!

      You are so welcome, Jean! I am so grateful and am honored to be able to write for your blog community. Thank you, so much. A prosperity journal is a great tool. That is wonderful that you write in your journal consistently. I do as well, but usually in the morning.

    It can be so difficult for people to understand that they are “good enough”. You provide great strategies, Susan, for bolstering that belief. Love the imagery of showering yourself with “love, praise, kindness, honor, respect, compassion, trust, ….and forgiveness”….beautiful!!!

    Love the affirmations and advice, Susan. Thanks for the generous sharing. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t add that getting a pet is also a super way to feel like you are awesome. There’s nothing like a dog’s loving looks to make you feel like a million bucks. 🙂

    Great article Susan. You are right it is extremely important to value yourself and know that you are enough and worthy of anything you want and desire! 🙂

    Great article and oh so important. Where did all this “I am not good enough” come from anyway. I have discovered that when I start feeling like I am inadequate I ask myself “Who does that belong to” and it generally feels heavy to me which means it doesn’t even belong to me. So I send that thought back to whomever it came from with total consciousness. it helps me release what isn’t mine and helps the person whose thought I picked up on to receive it back with consciousness. Everything is energy and there is just no way you can fool energy!

    Taking that special time to “JUST BE” has been one of the biggest ways for me to move out of any negativity or discouragement I may be having. That, along with saying affirmations, and writing in my gratitude journal, when done faithfully, causes the shift in my thinking that I need!

    I have found it very hard for many people to stand in front of a mirror and praise/love themselves. Key is to do it until it becomes as natural as brushing your hair. Great tips and affirmations, too. I believe 100% in affirmations!

    I totally agree with you Susan! It’s a good thing to take some time and get to know the amazing person God has made each of us. We need to forgive ourselves because no one is perfect, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be or achieve more. We need to continually tell ourselves that we are created in the image and likeness of God, as we are all created for a greater purpose. =)

    I like that you share it is okay to give oneself praise, without being full of himself/herself. The positive reinforcement has to be good for the mind! I’m reminded of the Henry Ford quote: “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t — you’re right.”
