Stack reasons why others should believe in you, as well as why you should do so, too. By doing this, when you start to doubt yourself you can go back to those reasons. Eventually, you will find that your belief in yourself will start to get stronger. Remember, you can’t give to others consistently, what you haven’t given to yourself. In your journal [if you don’t have one, a notebook 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. Take a look at what you wrote and you will find many reasons to believe in yourself.
Live In The Now:
When most people are asked, “Are you living in the now?” they usually answer by saying I try to. Most people try to, but their past keeps bringing them back to a place that they really don’t want to go. On the other hand, you probably know some people that live their lives planning just about every detail in their future. It is great to have goals, but as far as the ‘How’ that should be left to God or the Universe, if you will. We just need to get clear on what we want by making our goals and take effective action steps. By saying certain affirmations in regards to living in the Now, it can help you to stay present in that very moment as you learn how to thrive. For it is true happiness that is born in that very moment.
* I am at peace in this moment. * I am fully aware of being here now, in this moment. * I savor this moment as the unique experience that it is. * I am fully present in this moment. [via Jeff Staniforth]
Choose one affirmation above and write it on your index card and keep it where you can see it. Everyday say this as often as possible, to thrive, embrace the feeling of living in the NOW!
Let Yourself Be:
When life gets busy and hectic, take 5 minutes to go to your favorite environment and perhaps sip on your favorite beverage and just let your mind wander and let yourself just ‘Be.’ Don’t think about all the things that you have to do, but rather savor those moments. By doing so, you start to rejuvenate yourself. If you work from home, this is even more vital to step away from your computer, your phone, etc. I do this at least several times a day if not more. I make myself my favorite tea and go on my screened in porch and just rock in my rocking chair.
I always thought I was a pretty grateful person, but realized that I was when things were going pretty well and even more so when Amazing things were happening. But what I didn’t realize is that when I could be grateful for the experience that Adversity was giving to me at times, suddenly gratitude took on a whole new meaning and my life as I knew it, went to another new level of Happiness. When we are truly grateful for the challenges that are before us, there is no fear, thus alleviating any stress, as stress comes as a result of fear. When we are truly grateful it also opens our hearts to receive even more. Also, it’s also important to have gratitude for things that you want to happen, give gratitude as if it already happened. Consistency is the key. Also, if there is something that you really, really want and it is taking longer then you would like, Tony Robbins puts it best, “God’s delays are not his denials!”
I hope these steps help you to embrace not only the Amazing person that you are, but to also step into your Greatness and thrive! You are special and you deserve all that life has to offer! I believe in You! Go for it!!
