I value myself

Yes you do! Having a sense of self-worth means that you value yourself, and having a sense of self-value means you worthy. Worthy of love, affection, success, happiness - the list goes on! So, get up, stand in that mirror and tell yourself just how wonderful you really are!

I am beautiful inside and out

Image source: Reddit
Yes you are! Beauty famously has always lay in the eyes of the beholder, so why not be the person who genuinely sees your own beauty and who appreciates it? There will always be someone who doesn't see your beauty for what it is, so why let them impact how you feel about yourself? Repeat... I am beautiful, I am beautiful, and believe it girl!

I can overcome every obstacle that comes my way

A life without obstacles would be a very boring life indeed! Obstacles are designed to test us, to help us grow and to make us feel accomplished once we have climbed them and we can reflect on the other side. You may have an extra gray hair or two, but you did it! So get yourself a glass of vino and celebrate - there will always be another!

Every challenge I overcome is an opportunity to grow

Personal growth is important at every stage in life as it offers pivotal opportunities to mature, learn and improve your life. Think about a seedling and how without nourishment, it won't grow and eventually it will wither away. We are like that seedling. We need nourishment and challenges to test us to grow as humans and flourish in this world.

I have unlimited potential

The sky's the limit! How many times did you hear that when you were in school? - unaware of life's stresses and struggles - thinking ' I can be whoever I want to be'. So where did it all go wrong? Where did we start doubting our every step and believing we were amounting to nothing? Let's pause in the moment and reflect on where we have come from and look forward to the future we have yet to uncover!

I have everything I need for success

Image source: Reddit
Everything you need to succeed in life is there with you right now. It's in your head, in your heart. That is because you are the only person who can identify your success because success to you is exactly that, personal to you. No-one else can tell you if you have reached your goals because they are your goals!

I don't need validation from others to know how good I am

Image source: Reddit
Seeking validation from others to make yourself feel better and more content in life, will only lead to you feeling the complete opposite. Needing others to approve your happiness can impact your self-esteem and vulnerability, causing you to be a people pleaser in order to get the responses you desire.

I am free of self-doubt

Image source: stocksy.com
It is normal to feel emotional when things don't go to plan, however it is not okay to blame yourself and question your decisions that led to each situation. Life is a journey and on that journey there are many paths to take - believe that saying everything happens for a reason and be kinder to yourself!

I can express my true self

Image source: Reddit
Expressing yourself couldn't be a more widely accepted way of being than it is today! Everyone talks of embracing your authentic self and celebrating who you really are, so go for it! Die your hair pink, tattoo your face, wear that dress - just do what makes you happy!

I can achieve everything I want to achieve

If you want to climb that mountain, get that promotion, buy your dream house, you can do it! You just have to tell yourself you can. Manifestation is a real thing you know... If you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right - That's what Henry Ford says anyway so get believing!

Its okay to be out of my comfort zone

Image source: Reddit
Stepping outside of your comfort zone can be a scary thing to do. It can leave you feeling stressed and anxious, hot and bothered and initially hating your life! But, trust me, it will all be worth it. It's about rediscovering life, what you love about it, and giving yourself new opportunities to learn new things. I promise you, it will be more exciting and you will have a new found sense of confidence in doing so.

Every day I become a better version of myself

Image source: Reddit
Being the best version of yourself can sound like a daunting thing to achieve, however the most important part is simply showing up. Think of it like running a marathon yet having never ran a step in your life. Simply showing up to take a step at a time is what will get you there. So show up for yourself, each day is a step in the right direction!

I accept compliments from others

Image source: Reddit
Being able to accept a compliment, means being able to see the good in yourself. We've all been there when receiving a compliment and we blush and bat it off shyly, as if it's awkward and not meant for us. Well, it is! So welcome those compliments and walk around like you are the queen (or king) that you are!

I can let go of my insecurities

Image source: Reddit
Insecurities are negative thoughts about yourself that we all use to make ourselves feel bad. But why? Probably because we've been bullied at school, or social media has played its part. Either way, it's a whole lot of negativity that nobody needs in their life when life is so short. Let it go baby, let it go!

I am stronger than I think

Image source: Reddit
We've all been at a stage in life where it feels unworkably difficult and you're left thinking 'I can't do this anymore', 'I'm not strong enough'. Then you find yourself on the other side, having conquered it, surprised at yourself. Harness this feeling the next time you are struggling and remember, 'You are stronger then you seem, braver than you believe, smarter than you think..' as A.A. Milne once said.

There is nothing I am afraid of

Image source: Reddit
Being afraid is a good thing! I know, you're probably thinking I'm crazy, but it is! Fear is complex but when embraced, it can be exciting, help you focus and can be life-changing if you let it. Let whatever is frightening you empower you instead and you will find your life suddenly takes a turn in a fresh direction!

I deserve to feel good about myself

Image source: Reddit
There is nothing quite like the feeling of trying on a new outfit, looking in the mirror, thinking 'Damn, I look great in this'. So why not, allow yourself to feel that every day? We are often to hung up on the flaws: wrinkle here, extra hair there, and instead we should be celebrating the beauty of ourselves and what we have been through. See your body as a book and you're telling its story!

My happiness and well-being are important

Image source: Reddit
Getting up at the crack of dawn to do some sunrise yoga may not be your thing. Neither might be running or taking up a pottery class. However, the important aspect of taking some time for you, to do something that makes you genuinely happy, is incredibly important. Sometimes all it takes is one small step to get you out there and you know you'll love it!

I am not scared of taking risks

Image source: dailymail.co.uk
Taking risks in life often makes you feel exhilarated and alive. Something we all need to feel every once in a while to remind ourselves that we are still in fact alive, yes really! Whether that's the risk of trying something new or jumping from an aeroplane, it will get the adrenaline going, heart pumping and be a great change of scenery for you in what can be a very mundane life!

I know I am making the right choices in life

Image source: Reddit
No-one actually knows what they are doing in life and everyone is definitely just winging it! But, having confidence in your winging ability and acting like you know what you're doing is key to success. Treat every day as if it's your last and give everything a go, I promise you won't regret it!

I have the right to feel confident

Image source: Reddit
Putting on that dress; those shoes; that bag, can all make you feel insanely confident about yourself. Confidence is an attractive trait and one that most people look for in their other half. Just be careful that you're not too confident and see as arrogant as it will have the opposite effect that you desire!

I am better than to let others' negativity affect me

Image source: Reddit
Negativity breeds negativity unfortunately. There is only so many times you can kill someones negativity with kindness before you start believing in what they are saying or letting it get to you. Just keep remembering your self-worth and self-respect and you will see that their negativity is not worth your time.

I trust my gut

Image source: Reddit
Have you ever had a gut instinct about something? How many of those times was your gut wrong? Most likely never. Our mind doesn't just exist in one part of our body and is rather connected to the rest of us too. So, listen to your gut and take care of it too! A healthy gut = a healthy mind.

I am in control of my life

Image source: stocksy.com
Telling yourself you are in control of your life and your choices allows you to have the agency needed to make decisions and not feel guilty about them afterwards. It will also take away the need to overthink your decisions, leaving you less stressed that life is happening and you simply feel like you're surviving everyday.

Today is going to be a great day

Image source: Reddit
Positively thinking about your day will impact your stress levels, reducing them and leave you feeling more prepared for your day. It is true what they say that positive words breed positive thoughts. So, stand in that mirror and repeat to yourself that you are going to have a great day and then get out there and carpe diem! Seize that day!

My emotions matter

Image source: reidhealth.org
It should be okay for all sexes and genders to feel all types of emotions and they should all be made to feel valued. When someone shoots down your feelings, it can lead you to withdrawing and struggling to share your concerns later on. This is an unhealthy way to be as emotions are essential for us to express how we are really feeling.

I know there's no such thing as perfection

Image source: Reddit
Looking for perfection can consume people and it has done for so many we all know. That could be the perfect house, perfect body and face or simply perfect interactions between friends. However, life isn'y like that and it is certainly not perfect. This unrealistic expectation can be damaging and leave you wanting more all of the time.

I celebrate and reward myself

Image source: Reddit
How often to do give yourself a pat on the back and tell yourself well done? I'm imagining its very rare! Probably as rare as it is treating yourself because you've hit a certain goal you had this week or you simply just finished work without having a mental breakdown. It's time to be kinder to yourself and take those five minutes to celebrate you for being you!

I am enough

Image source: Reddit
Yes you are. You are absolutely enough. Even though as a society we don't tell ourselves this enough or say it to those around us, it's true. There's a lot of stigma around being a certain way if you want to do well in life, but being true to yourself and embracing the real you is much more rewarding.

I am courageous and stand up for myself

Image source: Reddit
Nobody want to date a carpet or a 'Yes man'. It can be uncomfortable to challenge others and stand up for what you want, but it is so important if you want to feel fulfilled in life. It shows those around you that you respect yourself and you know your self-worth.
