In typical SNM Jones fashion, I started a writing series and have completely deviated off course! But I promise eventually I’ll get back to writing tips…I wanted to share this with you instead. As we continue to live in a world where sometimes the negative seems to outweigh the positive. Where no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get ahead. You take two steps forward and one step backward. I want to let you know to keep going! Your experiences are shaped by your thinking. Every obstacle has value when you can see it.

As we start the new week or whatever day or moment it is as you are reading this blog -consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using right now to transform your life through the power of positive thinking.

Empowering Beliefs to Make You Smile

  1. I understand my potential. You can achieve amazing results when you put your mind to it. Know your potential and if you don’t that okay. Every day is a new day to discover something new about you!
  2. I count my blessings. List each thing that you have to be grateful for. Remember to include small items that we often take for granted like – the ability to feel the sun on our face- or having toothpaste and toothbrush. Expressing your appreciation reminds you of everything that you have versus focus on things that you do not have. Shifting to a positive mindset only adds more blessings to your life.
  3. I learn from mistakes. You can make setbacks work for you! At the time it may seem difficult and a hard pill to swallow but by focusing on the lessons that you learned from the mistake will only make you better and less likely to repeat it.
  4. I find meaning in adversity. Tough times can be the most rewarding phase of your life Yeah, pretty hard to believe- most folks lament on the why (myself included) but Know that you can emerge from any challenge with greater wisdom and courage. Look back at the obstacles you’ve already overcome, and know that you can handle what’s ahead.
