Women seek confidence and inspiration in all manner of places when confronted with self-limiting thoughts. Some turn to their family and friends, whereas others consult their coworkers. Some women also take to social media, where they broadcast their challenges, hoping to find a virtual shoulder to lean on.
But many times, the solutions to low self-esteem lie squarely within us. It’s undeniably true that we cannot always control how people perceive our worth and potential. Even so, we can control our attitude towards the world around us. One way to do that is with the help of positive affirmations.
For the uninitiated, affirmations refers to the practice of harnessing positive thoughts for self-empowerment. Affirmations attempt to foster the notion that a positive mindset is sometimes all you need to confront esteem issues.
Affirmations are typically formatted in positive, motivating, or thought-provoking statements. These statements should be frequently spoken out or written down to yourself as a way of reinforcing a positive attitude. Affirmations also need to be in the present tense and should preferably be customized to suit individual circumstances.
If repeated frequently enough, affirmations can go a long way in combating self-sabotaging thoughts. They allow a woman to appreciate their self-worth and inner potential, which is useful in fighting all the negativity around us.
