What kinds of thoughts do you have? Are they positive or negative?
- I am so tired.
- I am never going to get this done.
- This client is so picky they are driving me batty!
If these are thoughts that you are having on a consistent basis, you might be guilty of self-sabotage.
A bad mood will often lead to a bad day. Your outlook often gauges your success. If you try to gain a client but keep thinking, “Oh my gosh, I don’t know if I am good enough!“, then you can bet that they will not be sure if you are good enough.
Positive affirmations are a great way of changing your insecure thoughts into ones that lead you to a confident and more fulfilling life at work or home.
Try saying something like this out loud. Hearing it in your own voice, is like giving yourself a pep talk everyday.
Remember, your thoughts are often your self-fulfilling prophecy. The good news is that they are not set in stone.
