Daily Affirmations to Improve Your Mindset
I think we can all agree that at some point you have thought negatively about yourself. I’ve struggled with it for years and still struggle with it today. That negative mindset, or inner mean girl, would tell me…”You are not qualified for that job, so why apply?” “You will never physically look like her, so why start working out?” “You are not creative, don’t even try to dream of creating a product.” “You are not an expert in that area, no one will listen to you.” etc…Sound familiar? Next time you start thinking negatively, remember these 5 affirmations to help improve your mindset.
I am a beginner
When you take steps forward and in uncharted areas of life, you are going to suck and not have a clue to what you are doing. That is because you are a beginner. Be patient with yourself, and give yourself some grace. It will take time to get comfortable and figure it out. Instead of quitting or beating yourself up for not doing well. Learn from what went wrong, educate yourself and try again. 9 out of 10 times, beginners do not succeed the first time.
I have a purpose
We have one life, and one chance to live it to the fullest. We were all created for a purpose in this world. If you do not pursue and walk in your purpose then you will never be happy. Think of the opportunities, blessing and the lives that you could touch if you walked in your purpose. If you don’t know specifically what your purpose is, welcome to the club. I will honestly tell you, I do not know what mine is. But, I am moving forward, trying to new things, praying and personally growing, so that I can find my purpose. You never find your purpose by sitting still.

I deserve more
I struggle with seeing other people’s lives and thinking, “I wish I could have that. But it will never happen for me.” It took me a long time to ask myself the question, why not me? Please stop believing that your current life situation is permanent. My family has struggled with the same problem for years and years but I refuse to believe that we will always struggle with it. If I accept the problem then I will forever be depressed and have no reason to pursue happiness. You deserve more, but you have to get moving.
I can only gain
If you stop doubting yourself and try something new and then fail or get rejected. You lose nothing because it was something you never had to begin with. If you do not pursue a career, dream, friendship, etc. because you believe you will never meet it, then you are correct. Those things will not fall into your lap, therefore you won’t have them. You can only gain moving forward.
Other people’s opinions do not matter
Stop worrying about what other people think of you. The fear of what others think of you is paralyzing. It is something I’ve struggled with for years. I finally realized that no one actually cares. If they do care, I’m not going to live my life unhappy just to please them. That is a stupid way of thinking! Don’t let other’s hold you back from pursuing your dream.
