Positive Statements For Self-Esteem…

Affirmations are simple, positive statements that can be repeated many times, in order to impress the subconscious mind and trigger it into positive action. In order to ensure the effectiveness of your affirmations, try to repeat them with on a daily basis conviction and remind yourself of them when you are having a tough day.

Many of us repeat negative words (often called “negative self-talk” by therapists) and negative statements about the situations and events in our daily lives. When we do this, we can actually continue to create and foster undesirable situations and outcomes. The words we use can help us think positively and move forward, or they can keep us stuck. Feeling stuck is never a good thing!

Take a moment to think about this question…do you repeat negative statements in your mind, perhaps without even being aware that you are doing so? Perhaps you think and tell yourself over and over that you can’t accomplish something, that you are not strong enough or that you will never amount to anything. Your subconscious mind accepts these negative thoughts as ¬†truth and begins to craft a story with this negative theme. I encourage many of my clients to actively question their negative self-talk and use more positive based self- talk. The positive statement below are a good place to start. Write down some of the statement below which resonate with you and practice using them when your thoughts start to veer off in a negative direction.
