There is absolutely nothing wrong with telling your self just how great you are and saying well done for how far you’ve got thus far. Damn it, life is tough and has so many twists and turns. To help though, just giving yourself some encouragement goes a long way. So here’s a few reasons why you really need to; from today adopt this practise and see your life improve for the better.

1.It will heighten your confidence

I tell myself how beautiful I am each day and I compliment myself every day also and since I started to consistently do this each day, I have been able to change any low moods quite quickly. I feel and in my opinion look more attractive and prettier now than I have ever before. Mind-set is everything and programming your thoughts to align with how you want to see yourself and feel in your self is part and parcel of this. Because I feel more confident, it’s now more noticeable in my interactions and actions in my day to day life. I used to feel trapped in my circumstance but now I have the confidence to believe that I am more than capable of getting myself out of any situation.

2.  If you don’t why should anyone else?

I know I say this very often but life is crazy and is one big rollercoaster. Some people ride it a lot better than others. It doesn’t mean however that you can’t traverse the twists and turns a little better with practise. Much of how you deal with life comes down to how you view yourself and your abilities. If you don’t take the time to congratulate yourself and acknowledge your achievements, why should anyone else. You owe it to yourself to be your biggest cheerleader and the more you celebrate your shine, the more others will also gravitate to your light.

3. You will realise that mistakes are not failures, they’re are just a tried and tested way of establishing what not to do

How often have you come down hard on yourself when you’ve made a mistake, Hell, there’s nothing wrong with doing that for a time. However, how many of you are guilty of taking your personal beat down to a whole different level. To the point where you start putting yourself down and calling yourself out. You honestly don’t need to become your own worst enemy. Especially when life is complicated and you will make mistakes because guess what, you’re human! Of course you will make mistakes but use them as lessons in how to do things better next times.

Talking up yourself, should become a part of your day to day life and should be a way of being that you embrace. Once you get into the habit of celebrating yourself wholeheartedly, you allow your world to open up and things naturally feel more manageable. Take the 30 day challenge and aim to stand in the mirror everyday and tell your self how clever, skilled, beautiful, talented and strong you’re or adopt your own affirmations. Do this daily and wait to see the positive difference it will bring.
