As she thinks…so she is.
Are you a winner or a loser? If you think you are defeated, then you are. If you think you are successful, then you are. Now, that’s not saying that you are successful in everything that you do, but you are successful at something, probably lots of things. The point is, your attitude is key to your ability to see yourself as you really are.
I believe we are all winners. Each day that we awake and embrace another day, we are winning the race, we are showing the world that we are champions. We will not let the obstacles in life be our focus. We will use our energy to concentrate on our hopes, dreams and goals.
Give your day a power punch by beginning with positive affirmations. Remind yourself of all that you have to be thankful for. Recite them out loud or write them down and read them back to yourself. Take time for some peaceful meditation, allowing your appreciation for life to fill your spirit with love and gratitude.
Take deep breaths, stretch your arms above your head and lower them back to your sides, slowly and deliberately. Avoid straining, and make sure to relax your face, neck and shoulders. Allow the stress to escape as your mind, body and spirit is filled with positive energy for a healthy balance both physically and mentally.
Dismiss negative thoughts and don’t allow them to rule your actions. Make your self-talk an affirmation of love and appreciation. I guarantee you that if you start each day this way, you will begin to fell less stress and have a better self-image, than punishing yourself with negative words and feelings.
