I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

My daily affirmation

on February 17, 2013

hands outstretched with hears

When was the last time you gave yourself a complement?  Yesterday.  Last week.  Last year.  Never??

Everyone likes to be complimented.  When we receive a compliment from someone, it makes us feel good, as long as that person is being sincere.   However, society is more generous in giving criticism rather than giving compliments.  So when we do something that is good, we should give ourselves a compliment instead of waiting for someone else to do so.

We need to value ourselves and know when we are deserving of praise.   This is a form of self-respect and it shows that we have confidence in our abilities and strong self-esteem.   Every day we should give ourselves compliments and affirm our value.  If possible, do it out loud.  When we hear our own voice saying positive statements, it makes a bigger impact.

When you do a good job, tell yourself you did a good job.   When you pass a test, tell yourself how smart you are.   If you do something nice for someone else, tell yourself what a nice person you are.

Don’t pass up opportunities to boost your own esteem and don’t forget to genuinely compliment others when they are deserving as it will boost their esteem.

SOME QUOTES ABOUT POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS

An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change. – Louise L. Hay

When I talk about doing affirmations, I mean consciously choosing words that will either help eliminate something from your life or help create something new in your life. – Louise L. Hay

Affirmations are like seed planted in soil. Poor soil, poor growth. Rich soil, abundant growth. The more you choose to think thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work. – Louise L. Hay

Affirmation statements are going beyond the reality of the present into the creation of the future through the words you use in the now. – Louise L. Hay

One comes to believe whatever one repeats to oneself sufficiently often, whether the statement be true or false. It comes to be dominating thought in one’s mind. – Robert Collier

Any thought that is passed on to the subconscious often enough and convincingly enough is finally accepted.  – Robert Collier

You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which “clicks.”  – Florence Scovel Shinn

Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.  – Claude M. Bristol

Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.  – Norman Vincent Peale

As long as you know what it is you desire, then by simply affirming that it is yours — firmly and positively, with no ifs, buts, or maybes — over and over again, from the minute you arise in the morning until the time you go to sleep at night, and as many times during the day as your work or activities permit, you will be drawn to those people, places, and events that will bring your desires to you.  – Scott Reed
