So, it’s no secret I suffer from severe depression. I speak about it quite openly. I tell you about my struggles and daily battles and I talk about losing my mom and how it impacted me. Positive Affirmations are something I have been using to change my destiny.
I also talk about how in the last 6 months how drastically my life has changed.
Today as we head into Thanksgiving week (which is a hard week for me, mom passed the 21st) I began thinking about the changes in my life, and how grateful I am for them and how I wanted to
It’s barely Turkey day and I’m already talking about the New Year. I know shame on me. I promise you though that being prepped and ready now for the New Year in your business will set you up for success.
The longer one sits waiting for change the longer it takes. Or even worse it may never happen.
So instead of waiting I encourage you to get out and make it happen.
The biggest thing you can do to make this change:
Positive Affirmations- Change Your Language
No, I don’t mean learn Spanish or French. I mean change the language you use to speak to yourself. They way you speak to yourself is most often the way you let others speak to you as well and it’s also how you speak to others about yourself.
The week after Thanksgiving I’m teaching a Facebook class on Branding. I’ll be teaching business owners how to brand themselves online. It’s honestly one of the favorite things I teach. I love it because it’s always amazing to see what my time with someone inspires in them and how they inspire others through it.
But, there’s always people who allow the wrong language to sabotage their success. Trust me I know all about this. I did it for many, many years. But when I choose this new path I choose positive language to myself as well.
I chose never to allow fear to keep me back from my greatness.
I learned that statements like:
I feel overwhelmed.
Were limiting my ability to succeed.
I had to look at what those kinds of statement were bringing to my life.
I’m frustrated was bringing more frustration.
I feel overwhelmed caused me to be more overwhelmed.
Being scared held me back from doing awesome things.
Positive Affirmations- 1 Thing I’m Afraid to Tell You
In this post I decided I’d get real vulnerable with you. I want to reveal to you the 1 thing I’m afraid to tell anyone.
- I’m Nothing Special- Yep, that’s what I don’t tell anyone but I think it every day. It keeps me awake at night thinking that. Seeing what others say is there is hard for me. I don’t think I’m extraordinarily pretty (even though I get complimented even with my overweight stature all the time). I don’t think I’m insanely smart either (despite the fact that I score at genius levels on every aptitude test I’ve ever taken.) More often I worry I’m just adequate. I grew up an only child of a single parent and it really messed me up. I was awkward and different and I struggled to fit in and sometimes I still do. The difference now is I don’t really care if I fit in or not. I am proud of the person I am but it doesn’t stop me from thinking that I’m just not that amazing. I want to be amazing but I often don’t feel it.
That way of thinking has been something I’ve struggled with my whole life. And it never mattered what anyone else told me I couldn’t see it for myself. I knew I had greatness inside of me but I just didn’t know how to get it out. It’s funny because in person I seem extra confident. But the reality is for a long time that was a coping mechanism of over compensation.
But no more.
I made a promise to myself to see my greatness. To embrace my weird and inspire others with it.
Positive Affirmations- So How Do You Change Your Language
I’d love to offer some profound statement here but to be honest the only way I know to change the language is just to do it.
You have to get up every day and embrace yourself.
Embrace your flaws, learn and grow, and know that along the way you’ll fail.
But when you fail, and trust me you’ll fail, you get back up and tell yourself you are okay and amazing and keep going.
Positive Affirmations- How Did I Change My Own Language
I stopped listening to the voice in my head that said you can’t do this and started telling it yes I can.
I watched a movie called “The Secret” that 100% changed how I spoke about things. It was about the Law of Attraction and how what you speak into the Universe comes back to you.
At first, I thought oh what is this mumbo jumbo but as I watched and listened I began to realize how negative I had been speaking and how when I started being positive things changed for me in ways I would have never expected.
So I decided that I was just going to keep doing more of it.
I stopped worrying about rank and recruiting. Instead I began focusing on what I wanted.
I started by changing what was on my mirror. Originally I had written a rank I wanted to achieve but now I have an income goal I want to achieve. If I focus on that instead of a rank or a number of people etc. I can find many ways to create that number not just 1.
When negative thoughts creep in I change the way I process them.
I am frustrated and overwhelmed became:
I am excited about this new path I am taking and all the new things I am learning.
I’m scared that I wont make this new business work became:
I really love what I’m doing and I can’t wait to share it with so many new people.
By worrying less about the results and more about the impact I will have on people changed me from serving myself to serving others. In turn, it began to make me feel better about myself.
Positive Affirmations- In Closing
Positive affirmations can not only change your business but your whole life. They can even change how you impact others.
Free Resource: 2019 No Resolutions Affirmation Guide
I always like to equip you with a new resource each week. This week I’m offering my 2019 No Resolution Worksheet. Click the Purple Button Below to Download.
This worksheet will help you crush your goals. In it you choose your word of the year and define goals in the New Year for your business and beyond.
I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I think resolutions are too much pressure and too many people set their goals too high and set themselves up for failure because they truly can’t see themselves achieving the resolution and they give it up the second they lose even a little bit.
So that’s my gift to you. A year without resolutions. I hope you love it as much as I do.
