Self esteem is something that every person should have and the loss of it in a person can spell terrible disaster. Just like anything that a person has to have, a person should work at building his or her self esteem. There are various ways of building one’s self esteem, and one effective way that we will touch in this article is by using self-esteem affirmations.
Self esteem affirmations help you understand that others can love you and that you can love others as they are without judgment and without receiving something in return.
There is a difference between self-love and narcissism. Although it is not recommended to become obsessed with one’s positive qualities, it is not wrong to once in a while acknowledge our achievements and talents. Self-affirmation is a great way to increase our self-esteem levels. Telling yourself that you are great in front of the mirror every morning may seem too much but it actually works in increasing one’s self-confidence.
Of course, you don’t have to take self-affirmation to the extreme if you don’t want to. Sometimes acknowledging the little achievements that you have done at the end of the day is enough to raise the rate of self-esteem.
Everyone can benefit from engaging in self esteem affirmations on a daily basis. A person’s performance cannot exceed their sense of self-esteem. Using self esteem affirmations on a daily basis will help to boost your sense of self worth and get you past the barriers that hold you back from achieving success. When you suffer from low self-esteem it’s very common to blame yourself for everything and to feel that you don’t live up to the expectations of either yourself or others.
Self esteem affirmations are always best done with a calm and tranquil mind, so it is helpful if you relax mind and body by meditate for a few minutes before commencing your practice.
Below are some examples of self esteem affirmations that you can use for yourself.
“I love and approve of myself exactly as I am I am worthy of love and all good things”.
“Being love in all moments is my natural state of being”.
“Love flows to me easily and effortlessly and in surprising ways”
“I AM the master of my life, and my subconscious mind is my friend and servant”
“I have an attitude of gratitude; and I easily maintain my attention on my intention”
There is no aphrodisiac that would make you love yourself more than doing the things that you love. When you love what you are doing, you become happier and more enthusiastic. You will also become more interested in developing your skills, thereby improving yourself and allowing you to trust yourself more. Besides, if you are happy with what you are doing, you are more confident with your decisions and your actions.
