Women empowerment to me means showing women what they’re capable of if they just believe in themselves. Women all over the world have realised how important it is to be on each other’s side and to protect our values as females. We are expected to be so many things from an exceptional mother to a successful business / career woman. Moreover, on social media, many women compare themselves to others and can feel down because they’re not skinny, curvy or not looking like all the influencers they see all over the media.
In time, I have established my own values; I have realised what an important role females play in society and fully embraced mine. I’ve prepared this article discussing five important techniques to embrace positive self-talk.
Why does positive self-talk play such an important role in women empowerment?
First of all, self-talk is made out of thoughts you’re sending to yourself everyday – positive or negative. Also, they have an impact on your confidence, positivity, self-love and after all, mentality.
Actually, it’s said that if you start your day with positive affirmations the rest of it will go as great as it started. The way we choose to see the things that happen to us have an enormous impact on our way of living. Therefore, if you will always see the bad side of yourself and your actions, you are only harming yourself and falling into deeper and darker thoughts.
Set yourself some healthy boundaries
The environment you decide to spend your time in has a meaningful impact on your life and positivity. Therefore, setting some healthy boundaries and choosing your circle of friends carefully is a great start.
Constantly surround yourself with people who cherish and respect you in order to charge yourself with positivity.
Moreover, the media also has an effect on your mindset, therefore you should opt for a more positive and a more mindful newsfeed. Feed your thoughts and mind with practical and useful information rather than negative news (don’t argue with me on that please).
Start saying positive affirmations to yourself.
Consider starting with two positive affirmations every day. Also, don’t forget about the law of attraction, if you manifest something, it will come to you eventually. Therefore, once you get out of bed say: “Today will be a wonderful day, everything will go as planned” or “Today I will not allow anything to bring me down, I’m staying positive”.
Once you make a habit out of it, maintaining a positive mindset won’t be hard at all.
Also, have you considered doing women empowerment in your circle of friends? You never know who will need to learn about your positive approach to life.
Channel your inner critic in the right direction
In life, we can all make mistakes. However, you should channel your inner critic in the right direction. Therefore, if you find yourself in a bad position or have made a mistake, ask yourself : “Is there another way to look at this problem?” Don’t let your negative chatter interfere – we’re all experts at complaining about ourselves and not doing anything constructive about it.
We’re all human and every single one of us makes mistakes, all you have to do is to learn from them and to accept them. Just decide on what you did wrong, how you can possibly fix it and how can you avoid it in the future. That’s all!
However, don’t be too harsh on yourself! Mistakes are part of our lives and sometimes you just can not avoid them.
Be thankful! 🙂 This is a perfect way to find the good in your life and generate positive self-talk.
Try to be grateful for everything that happens in your life.
However, if you’re having a hard time doing that, keep track of everything that made you smile or made you thankful. Also, at the end of the day, you’ll realise how small your problems actually are.
Stop comparing yourself to others
You’re unique and that is your power after all!
You should accept and embrace your own values and uniqueness. Also, I know it’s quite hard to not look at what other people are doing and to not compare yourself with them, but it’s not quite healthy.
Once you see that you have your very own path, you will also realise that no one can be you and that for sure is a boost of confidence.
Individuals that are better off or worse than you, will always be around. It’s crucial to focus on yourself and be thankful for what you have.
Stop comparing yourself to others and start living your own life.
Lastly, daily positive self-talk is not impossible to reach, all you have to do is to see the best in situations. Start seizing the day and always see the good in you.
Here’s to women empowerment! 🥂
