When we talk about affirmations, if means you we are manifesting a specific goal or goals in our life. In other words, we are manifesting a life filled with positivity and encouragement. Positive affirmations have become very important in today’s fast-paced stressful, competitive life. Whether at home or at work, we are surrounded by all sorts of negativity. and it becomes very essential to get rid of it.
How negativity surrounds our work life?
There are many times when we become frustrated in our work life. There are times when we come to that extreme point in our lives when we say or believe that:
- I am useless
- I am good for nothing
- I won’t be able to complete the work
- I hate my job
- My boss hates me
- I dislike my boss
- My work never gets appreciated
- I am not being promoted
- There is no raise in my salary
- My finance is not improving and so on
These are basically negative thoughts that come to our mind very often when we are not satisfied with our work life. All these negative thoughts get stored in our sub-conscious mind, and gradually we start believing that everything around us is bad. The more we think about these, the more these thoughts become true for ourselves. All these negativities make us lose our confidence , make us lose interest in our work, and can also lead to depression.
How do we get rid of such negative thoughts in our mind?
We should replace the negative thoughts with positive affirmations. These are also referred as self-affirmations, where we make positive statements to inspire and encourage ourselves. Experts say that with positive or self-affirmations, we change our negative beliefs about ourselves into positive ones. Practicing positive affirmation is a never-ending life practice. The above negative statements can be easily converted into positive affirmations when we start saying or believing as follows:
- I am useful
- I am good for everything
- I am capable of accomplishing anything
- My boss appreciates my work
- My salary is increasing
- My finance is improving
You can add few more like as follows:
- I like my job
- I enjoy learning new things every day
- I am hardworking
- My work life is fun and rewarding
- I am grateful for everything I have
- I am confident
- I am energetic and full of enthusiasm
- I am calm and peaceful
Generally speaking, positive-affirmations get inbuilt in our psychological immune system and motivate us. For example, when your boss harshly criticizes your work, just pat yourself at the back with positive reminders like “it’s going to be okay, I can do it, I love my job”. This will help to cope with the situation and you will feel good about going to work.
