Let’s face it – it can be tough some days! Whoever said it would be easy was just lying to you and to me!
We have days where everything is going perfect and then some not so good days!
January is one of those months of planning and setting the tone for the New Year. It can seem quite bland at times as you may not notice much going on! You might start to wonder if you will really achieve your dreams or were you just imagining it. You can do it! You will do great things this year! You just have to believe.
Spend this month building yourself up with LOVING thoughts and words and planning your step by step daily, weekly, monthly activities for a bright 2014.
So the question that I want to ask you right now is ‘How can you love yourself more?’
Here are some tips/tricks/things that you can do on a daily basis to build yourself up which will lead to happiness, progress and success:
1) Receive God’s love for you:
No that no matter what you are going through and no matter how quiet or stressful things are God is actually madly in love with you and He is in control. It may look like all of your hard work is going nowhere and that your efforts will never succeed but it is not true. Something amazing is around the corner, simply hold on to your faith 🙂
2) Decide to love yourself:
Loving yourself is a decision that you and you alone have to make. Decide to love yourself, choose to build yourself up by making a solid commitment to be kind and loving to yourself. Even if you have weaknesses and even if you don’t always achieve your aims.
3) Become your own best friend:
Have you ever thought about how you treat yourself? Have you ever written down the thoughts that you have about yourself? Are they positive and edifying or are the negativing and destructive? I used to think negative…not about others but about me and one day God gave me a revelation and I decided to build myself up with positive affirmations. Become your best friend that encourages and supports yourself. Learn to enjoy your own company! Spend time finding out what you love and like and do more of those fun things.
4) Write love letters to yourself:
I challenge you to write yourself a letter and post it to yourself. Do this once a week for the next month and you will be surprised at how edified you will feel. The more you love yourself the more you will shine in your life, business and you will have better relationships with others.
5) Put positive reminders on your phone:
Put messages on your phone that pop as reminders i.e. I love myself, I am beautiful, I am courageous and strong. This is one of the best ways to remind yourself to think good things about yourself. This will truly build your confidence.
6) Reflect on your former achievements:
Look back at the great things that you have achieved in your life. Also include the small things that you have achieved to your list.
7) Hug yourself:
Give yourself a hug now and then! Also give yourself a pat on the back when you do something good i.e. after you give a presentation. You might not always have someone there to cuddle you or to pat you on the back so make sure you do this to yourself to appreciate yourself.
8) Confess good things about yourself:
Make positive affirmations. This can be one of the greatest ways to build a healthy self-esteem and a great self-image. There is no way that you can possible achieve great things in life if you are negative and downcast. You have to speak good things out of your mouth over your life, over your business, you have to declare good things! Write out a list of all the things you want and say them out loud twice a day first thing in the morning when you wake up and just before you go to bed at night. This will make you feel optimistic and more positive about life.
I want to leave you with this powerful quote:
