I’ve added a new element to My Morning Routine – and it happens in the shower… Bow Chicka Bow Wow!
Actually it’s quite clean, it used to be that I’d blast my iPod classic 80gb with the 30 pin on the iHome original (remember those?) – typically to the sounds of Drake, Lil Wayne, and/or Shakira.
However, through listening to the Entrepreneur on Fire podcast, one quality of highly successful people keeps showing its face… and they are known as Positive Affirmations. You see fear and doubt plagues all of our lives in some respect, and positive affirmations can be used as a preventative, mental medication of sorts for overcoming these doubts and ASSURING yourself that you are a highly valuable and capable human being. It is my belief, and the belief of many others, that this boost in self-confidence, early in the day, can have a dramatic, lasting, positive impact on the quality of your life and could give you the courage to take more risks you otherwise would be too doubtful of. Basically I’m trying to level up and be more like Mega Man every day.
So! Here is a list of my current Positive Affirmations that I repeat to myself in the shower and you might find value in developing your own:
- “You are loved by God.”
- “You are bold and powerful beyond measure.”
- “Today is a gift – give thanks.”
- “You are love – share it with everyone.”
- “You are resilient.”
- “Overcoming fear and doubt is a daily practice that you’re becoming increasingly better at.”
- “You can be an inspiration to others – will you be?”
- “You are the present and your future is your creation.”
- “Are you going to be excellent today?”
This is a working list – yet is serving me well for the current time. You’ll notice there are also some questions added into the mix… The questions are there because everyday you have the power to choose who you are going to be – and asking the question allows yourself to give the answer you wish to give.
Do you have some Positive Affirmations or mantras that you live by?
