How Affirmations Help to Change Your Attitude
Have you ever met someone that believed they were useless? The person likely could not do anything right, and they had no self-confidence, and their lack of self-confidence made them unattractive in the eyes of others, and their lives were likely to have been lonely and secluded. Did you want to go up to them and shake them and tell them that they were good, they were capable, and they were worthy of love and happiness? You wanted to give them affirmations of their worth to the world.
Affirmations are positive reinforcements that increase a person’s confidence that something they need to happen will happen in a way that is good for them. When a person has very low opinions of themselves or their abilities then they often fail at everything they try in life. You constantly hear them put themselves down and this attitude causes more things to go wrong in their lives.
Sometimes you meet people that seem to have a bad attitude and the reason will not be obvious. These people will come to work with the attitude that they do not care if the job gets done they are simply there to make their eight and get out of there. They seem to always have a chip on their shoulders and they are rarely promoted up the line because of their attitude and outlook. They see the glass as half empty and the world as a hard and cruel place. Positive affirmations could turn their attitude around.
If you are an employer and you have an employee that has a bad attitude you can change it with positive affirmations. Each person has something they do that they do well. If you concentrate on what that person does well and you start to give them daily affirmations of their worth and their ability you will build their confidence in themselves. They will begin to come to work with a changed outlook because they will believe they are valued on the job. The positive affirmations will change the attitude of the employee and it will change their productivity in the work place.
When you see a young girl that looks down at the ground instead of in the eyes of the people she is talking to she generally thinks she is ugly. If every time you see that girl you were to compliment her and tell her she is pretty after a short period of time she would begin to believe that you thought she was attractive. After hearing your affirmations of her beauty she would gain confidence and you would visibly see the change this added confidence would bring out in her. She would start looking you in the eye and start to smile when she talked to you. Physically she would actually become more attractive because her inner self would radiate more confidence and assurance.
We can convince ourselves that we are fat and disgusting even when we are perfectly normal. Once we have ourselves convinced when we look in the mirror we see fat. Positive affirmations can convince us that we have good qualities and that things are going to work out right.
