Tell Yourself These 5 Things Every Morning

tell yourself these 5 things every morning

Words are just as powerful as actions, which is why it’s important to pay attention to the words and thoughts that you use and focus on each and every day. If you wake up in the morning telling yourself “it’s going to be a rough day,” chances are it will be since your words tend to dictate what you believe. But instead of using your words to focus on and describe a situation, try to use them to change your position.

Remember, what you focus on each day is what becomes your reality. So make today the beginning of a new chapter. Start by telling yourself these five things every morning to help shift your mindset and your reality to a brighter one instead.

“I am Grateful for all I Have in my Life.”

When you first wake up, there’s no better time to begin focusing on healthy thoughts in order to set your day on a high note. And thinking about all that you’re grateful for is one of the best ways to do this. Whether it’s your partner, your family, your career, or even your adorable fur baby, tell yourself at least three things that you feel truly grateful for in your life. This is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and have you feeling amazing as you head out the door.

“Today, Good Things will Happen to Me.”

Telling yourself that good things are in store for you helps to change your state of mind. When you’re primed for the day instead of assuming that the worst is going to happen, you can instantly improve your overall outlook and react to challenging scenarios more effectively.

When you expect to have a beneficial outcome, you are also more likely to experience one, even if you have a tough customer or experience a rough day at the office.

“I Love Who I am and Who I am Becoming.”

It takes continuous effort to drown out those pesky, poor thoughts that can foster self-doubt. But the more you focus on self-love and acceptance, the easier it will be to open up and feel more emotionally connected and happy with who you are.

“I Accept the Things I Cannot Change.”

Some things are within your power to change, like how you feel, react, and view the world around you. And some things are beyond your control. You can gain more confidence and courage by remembering that you have the power to control your joy and happiness, but remember to let go of the fact that you cannot (and should not) change, control or expect this from others.

“The Past is Behind Me.”

Being stuck in the past is never a healthy way to move forward. So if you find that your previous relationships or scenarios are plaguing your thoughts, tell yourself to let them go. Although you can’t always forget, you do have the power to move forward and focus on what you have in front of you.

Words are very persuasive tools that have the power to dictate your life. By taking control of your words and learning to replace harmful thoughts with good ones, you can gradually begin to improve your life and your relationships with others.
