Your experiences are shaped by your thinking. Even obstacles have a value when you can see it. You can develop convictions that will help you to feel happier and achieve more, regardless of the situation.
Consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using today to transform your life through the power of prayer, focus and positive thinking.
Empowering Beliefs to Make You Smile
I understand my potential. You can achieve amazing results when you put your mind to it. Feel excited about reaching your true potential. What are some ways today you can do things to achieve this?
I count my blessings. List each thing that you have to be grateful for. Remember to include the smaller items, like warm pants right out of the dryer or some beloved sweet treat after dinner. Expressing your appreciation reminds you of how rich you are.
I learn from mistakes. You can make setbacks work for you by focusing on the lessons that they contain. Flubbing one job interview can teach you how to ace the next one. What mistakes of your past have actually become a place of growth and measurement for today’s success?
I find meaning in adversity. Tough times can be the most rewarding phase of your life. Know that you can emerge from any challenge with greater wisdom and courage. Look back at the obstacles you’ve already overcome, and reassure yourself that you can handle what’s ahead.
I embrace change. Accept that life is a series of changes. Focus on the present moment and prepare yourself to adapt to whatever circumstances come your way. What does that look like today?
I dream big. Expand your wish list. Setting demanding but attainable goals gives you adventures to look forward to each day. What adventure lies ahead of you today?
I practice forgiveness. Lighten your load by clearing away any resentment you’re holding onto from the past. Set reasonable boundaries while you respond with compassion when others disappoint you. Pardon yourself too. Who is someone you have been carrying? Meaning…What area of unforgiveness have you been harboring in your life? Do an unforgiveness inventory. This is not a list of offenses at all. This is to identify people in your life you must release. Yes, they may be 100% at fault and that doesn’t matter when it comes to you releasing them freeing you from a bondage of bitterness, grief, hate and emptiness. When you do choose to release this person or persons to God, you are freeing yourself to live life without someone else directing your traffic. It’s not easy, I know, ask God to give you the strength to release them to him as he for sure can handle the situation much better and of course in the end, vengeance is his anyway. Enjoy the release, experience the freedom and make it a regular part of your life. You will always use this tool for freedom.
I give generously. Sharing your blessings makes you more powerful and joyful. Volunteer in your community and speak kindly to each person you meet today. Buy coffee for your co-workers or give your receptionist a flower. Don’t volunteer because it makes you feel good or that you accomplished something, volunteer because you want to be a nameless hero serving someone else.
Empowering Beliefs to Make You Strive
1. I take responsibility. You are in charge of your life. Hold yourself accountable for the outcomes you create. Celebrate the fact that you have the power to determine your own future. What one thing will you take responsibility for today?
2. I apply effort. Figure out your definition of success so you know what is worth working for. Give yourself credit when you’re making progress rather than comparing yourself to others. What is your definition of success?
I leverage my strengths. You have your own individual strengths that you can draw on. Figure out what you’re good at and what you want to do. Let that knowledge guide your choices. What is that?
I listen to feedback. Ask for feedback so you can enhance your performance and show others that you respect their point of view. You grow faster when you gather solid input that you can translate into action.
What will you do with the feedback you received today? Put it in a journal do you a) don’t forget and b) can reflect at another time in life.
I ask for help. Expand your capabilities by building a sturdy support network. Carpool with other parents. Divide up household chores with your spouse and children. Know why you’re always tired and complaining you do everything yourself? Because you do everything yourself.
I connect with others. Moral support counts too. Surround yourself with loving and encouraging family and friends. Participate actively in your faith community. Join a group of people who share your interest in things you love to do. Could be a community center basketball league. A picture cropping club. A bowling league. A bible study. What will that look like this week?
I recognize opportunities. Stay alert for promising openings. You may meet a new friend while you’re standing in line to buy your morning coffee. Who have you met in the past week? Have you followed up?
I try new things. Be open to experimentation. Go kayaking one weekend instead of playing tennis. Bake your own bread or knit a scarf. You may discover hidden talents. What are a couple of things you’d like to try out?
