If you want to use your thoughts to empower your life, but you aren’t sure where to begin, here are five empowering thoughts to get you started. 𝗧𝗶𝗽: Use them as affirmations and make them even more effective!
𝟭. 𝗜 𝗖𝗮𝗻 𝗔𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗲 𝗠𝘆 𝗚𝗼𝗮𝗹𝘀
If you set goals then think you can’t accomplish them, you probably won’t. Just thinking you can’t do something will affect your actions and emotions and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. So instead of telling yourself that you can’t do something, tell yourself that you can achieve whatever you want to achieve.
𝟮. 𝗜 𝗔𝗺 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝗠𝘆 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲
There will be times in your life where things will happen that you feel are out of your control. Remind yourself that you are responsible for everything which happens in your life. The choices you make and actions you take or don’t take. This can help give you the confidence you need to take control and change any difficult situation you may be faced with.
𝟯. 𝗠𝘆 𝗣𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗜𝘀 𝗡𝗼𝘁 𝗪𝗵𝗼 𝗜 𝗔𝗺
Many people have a past they aren’t so proud of, including me but this is the great thing about the past, it’s the past. It has no control over who you are or your current life (unless you let it). Tomorrow is always a new day. If you are struggling with letting go of something which may have happened to you in the past, or if you are letting it control your present, remind yourself that your past is not who you are.
𝟰. 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀 𝗔𝗿𝗲 𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗱
People tend to naturally fear and shy away from things in life which they perceive to be difficult or challenging. Remind yourself that challenges are good, and that if everything came easily, that you would never have any triumphs in life. So next time you find yourself facing a difficult task, tell yourself that challenges are good and make your best attempt. You may just be surprised by what you can accomplish.
𝟱. 𝗠𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀 𝗔𝗿𝗲 𝗟𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗜 𝗖𝗮𝗻 𝗟𝗲𝗮𝗿𝗻 𝗙𝗿𝗼𝗺
Along your journey in life, you will make mistakes, this is being human. When you make a mistake, don’t freak out. Remind yourself that mistakes are there as lessons for your future self. Even if you messed up in the now, you now know what not to do in the future. And as long as you keep this in mind, and truly do learn from your mistakes, they will always be worthwhile and won’t damage the person you are on the road to becoming.
Remember that no matter what anyone says, you 𝘤𝘢𝘯 achieve your goals, 𝘺𝘰𝘶 are responsible for your life, and your past is 𝘯𝘰𝘵 who you are. And when the tough days come, tell yourself that challenges are 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥, and that when you do make a mistake, that it is 𝘰𝘬𝘢𝘺, you will learn from it in the future. Once you have mastered these power thoughts, you’ll truly be on your way to transforming your life for the better.
