There are a few phrases that every woman should be able to say with confidence. While you might not believe the words at first, eventually the mantras will become a reality. Once you start to believe the things that you're saying, your confidence will rise and your happiness will skyrocket. Here are a few things that you should say to yourself every morning in front of the mirror until you actually believe that they're true:
1. I’m Beautiful
You need to believe that you're beautiful, and not only when your face is shrouded in makeup. You should even believe it when your hair is a mess, your eyeliner is smudged, and you're feeling bloated. It's hard to accept your flaws, especially since you see them every time you step in front of a mirror, but it's something you can learn to do. Love your natural self and the world will feel a whole lot brighter.
2. I Deserve Love
If you're single, don't assume that you'll never find the right person for you. If you're in an unhealthy relationship, don't let yourself believe that you deserve the ill treatment. You deserve love and you deserve respect. If you're not getting it, then you should take your pretty self elsewhere.
3. I’m Strong
You're strong enough to get through anything that life throws at you. The next time things fall out of place, tell yourself that you're strong. If you cry, it doesn't make you weak. If you quit your job, it doesn't make you weak. As long as you continue on with your crazy life, you can consider yourself strong.
4. I’m Intelligent
You're smarter than you think you are. Even if you get bad grades, it doesn't mean that you're less intelligent than your peers are. You're just skilled in other areas. Schools don't test all different kinds of smarts, so you might be the Einstein of your century, but an exam isn't able to tell you that.
5. I’m My Own Person
Remind yourself that you're a unique human being. If your parents are bad people, it doesn't mean that you're a bad person. If your friends are on a dangerous path, it doesn't mean you need to follow them. You're your own person, which is something to be proud of. Don't let others influence your decisions, because you're in charge of your own life.
6. I'm Doing My Best
You might not be rich and you might not be famous, but you're doing the best that you can. You can't expect yourself to do anything more than that. So the next time you fail, ask yourself if you did the best that you possibly could've. If you did, then you shouldn't let yourself feel bad. Determination is the best trait you could have.
7. I'm Going to Succeed
Your chances of succeeding will increase if you actually believe that you'll succeed. So instead of assuming you'll never get a promotion, tell yourself that you're one of the best candidates for the job. Haven't you ever heard that you should fake it until you make it?
Say these things to yourself every morning and your day will be off to a great start. After all, there's nothing healthier for you than confidence. Can you say all of these things with a straight face?
