18 Things You Need To Tell Yourself Every Day When You Wake Up

18 Things You Need To Tell Yourself Every Day When You Wake Up

Most of us have similar driving forces – deep desires that possess us to get up and live each day. These forces are the drive to be happy, successful, and loved. The more we satisfy these needs, the more fulfilling and joyful our daily lives will be.

Some of us also want to contribute, connect, and make an impact. These needs propel people to live out their life purpose, which gives them the opportunity to experience a truly exceptional life.

To be proficient at accomplishing these aspirations you need to have the right mindset. A way of thinking that promotes happiness, success, love, connectedness, contribution, and a lasting impression. Here are 18 things to tell yourself each day to influence your actions, so you can realize your ambitions and create the reality of your dreams.

1. I am surrounded by people who love and care for me.

When a person feels loved and supported, it frees them to be themselves and gives them the courage to explore and take chances.

2. I attract love through my own loving thoughts and actions.

Live in a love frequency by being a conduit of love. Everything you do — from work to play — can be inspired by the love held within you.

3. I am lovable.

You must believe that you are already that which you seek. You are love personified. Awaken to this truth.

4. I am everything I want to be. I am proud of how I conduct myself.

Claim success to be yours now by simply defining ‘success’ as you acting in accordance to your beliefs.

5. I am quick to fix my mistakes and own up to my responsibilities.

Don’t let mistakes define you. Instead fix them and show the world that you are a problem solver.

6. I achieve my goals with ease and see challenges as opportunities for growth.

Half the battle is won when you go into life knowing you’re going to figure it out.

7. I am the architect of my reality and I’ve decided to build myself a good life.

The greatest thing a person can do to increase their chance of being successful at anything is to know that it is through their own actions that they will bring forth success. You are the protagonist of your life movie. Be the person who saves the day.

8. I am free to do anything I want.

Sometimes our thoughts are our main limitation. Nullify that with better thoughts and get to frying bigger fish.

9. I am in charge of my feelings. I choose to react with compassion at all times.

A bad day can be turned around with a change in perspective, a little laughter, and some sugar.

10. I am healthier and feel more alive each day.

How you treat yourself is directly related to how you see yourself. See yourself as a healthy person then follow up by living a healthy lifestyle. Treat yourself to nutritious foods, physical fitness, and mindful wellness. Even if you’re not exactly where you want to be, begin by adjusting your belief system and you will be on your way.

11. I smile easily and love to laugh every chance I get.

A smile can decrease stress, a good laugh can lighten your mental load, and together they can turn your day around.

12. I live in joyous expectancy.

Expect to see good things happening to you. You deserve it.

13. I know all things are connected and wish my actions to only have good consequences for everyone.

When you value the people and environment around you, you feel a sense of belonging. This bonded feeling nourishes the inner peace that we all long for.

14. I treat others like I treat myself – with kindness and respect.

Compassion is at the heart of anyone who is happy with themselves.

15. I cherish my relationships.

An old Turkish proverb says, “Shared joy is double the joy. Shared sorrow is half the sorrow.” Without relationships life would get lonely and arduous. Don’t forget to enjoy the people around you.

16. I give back because it is my nature.

One of the greatest attributes of being human is our ability to show empathy. Our hearts feel strongly and when moved, we can create miracles.

17. I share because there is enough for everyone.

Don’t get caught up in competition, instead get connected and revel in collaboration. Lift each other up.

18. I live in a constant state of abundance.

Think about it — you can have all the money in the world, but if your mind is in a state of lack, depression, or any type of suffering, you don’t have much.

Your positive mindset is your true wealth and you can increase your riches easily by repeating and believing these 18 thoughts daily.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
