Inspire Self Development thru Affirmation and Visualization

Building our inspiration through affirmation and visualization can facilitate us through the processes of self-development. When one develops a positive pattern of thinking, it helps them to affirm that they are unstoppable and the sky is their limit. They will be able to uproot and annihilate the evils like poverty, racism, abuse, crime, violence, war and sex among others plaguing us today.

They will create an ideal world full of happy people who are devoid of any kind of stress, anxiety, worry or apprehension. Let us join to make this a reality.

We have inner strengths that facilitate us to take control of our actions and thoughts. By probing in the innermost, deepest mind, one can pull up some other strength. Once you find these strengths, it makes it easier to visualize the self-taking action toward self-development.

Because life puts so many challenges in our way, it is often difficult to find ways to solve our problems effectively. This is where visualization and affirmation comes in handy. Using mental pictures and affirmation we can inspire the mind so that it stays focused on the goal of self-development.

Affirmations give the mind support and encouragement. These healthy agents will help us to develop assertive skills, which makes it easier for one to confirm statements while making his or her declarations. Visualizations enable us to create dreams in the mind. We can use our ideas to expand on these dreams while using affirmation to motivate the mind and body to take action.

Visualizations help us to draw up mental illustrations, diagrams, images, or charts so that we can route the mind in the right direction. The mind works in a seven-block structure. It often helps when one becomes aware of this structure. For example, when the mind seeks out information to find solutions for problem solving, it often digs for the purpose first.

Despite that, the average person is unsure of their purpose, this is often what the mind often seeks first. People can usual find their purpose in life by encouraging the mind and assisting it with finding answers.

Purpose gives one visual goals that keeps one focused and persistence to continue looking ahead. The tenacity of goals will help with developing new ideas through rational thinking. After the mind finds purpose, it often begins the question asking process. Any information under evaluation is questioned. The mind first examines the problem, difficulty of the problem, issues surrounding the problem, the subject and matters to find resolution. Any uncertainties are channelled so that the visual question marks are considered with deeper thought. This is the action of critical thinking in progress.

The mind will continue searching until answers become available. The problem is, sometimes it takes years and years before the mind finds answers to certain problems. This is because the person fails to assist the mind, or will suppress the problems.

It brings us to see that we can assist the mind by avoiding suppression. Instead of putting off the problem, take care of it right away. One can reduce loads of stress by resolving the problems immediately. Many problems create suffering. When you work to reduce the problems through visualization and affirmation, you can develop a positive outlook on life, which makes it easier to reach your goals.

Encourage your mind by helping it to find purpose. You have the inner strengths. Simply probe into your mind and explore your knowledge, experiences, information and events to discover ways to solve your problems. Think positive and your mind will work naturally through the process of self-development.

Grow Your Self Esteem With These 4 Tips

Most of us could use a bit of a self-esteem boost every once in a while.

Self-esteem is all about how we feel about ourselves. When we have low self-esteem, we can be at risk for depression, we can be more prone to tolerating abusive behavior and relationships, and we can fail to live up to our true potential.

 

There can also be cons to self-esteem. For example, when a person’s sense of self worth is much too high, it can turn into arrogance or what is termed ‘narcissism’, and this can create problems. Such people can find it difficult to accept and learn from their own mistakes and can develop a false sense of entitlement.

Developing a balanced level of self-esteem is very important. For some, a healthy, high self-esteem develops naturally. But for others, developing a healthy self-esteem takes more work. Check out the following pointers to give your self-esteem a kick start.

1. Draw up a list of your good qualities – For some individuals with really low self-esteem, even contemplating making a list of their good qualities seems like an overwhelming task, but it can be extremely helpful for boosting self-esteem. If you find this task challenging, consider what other people say about you. What positive compliments have you ever been given? Start with those and then expand on this. Jot your good qualities down using “I” and the present tense. For example, “I am a kind and generous person.”

2. Regular affirmations – Take another peek at the list you made. Choose your favorite qualities to use to do regular affirmations. Take those statements and jot them down on notecards and stickie notes. Stick the notes where you will notice them everyday, such as on your computer screen, mirror, or refrigerator. When you see them, take a minute to repeat them several times to yourself. Place notecards in your pocket or wallet where you are sure to come across them on a regular basis. When this happens, take a moment to read them to yourself a few times. After a while you can change out some of your best qualities for some of the other qualities on your list.

3. Gain some perspective – People often don’t talk about their challenges, failures, and struggles in life, but that’s not because they don’t have them. How we decide to approach these things will directly influence levels of self-esteem, happiness and success. The most successful and confident people in life aren’t those who have had few problems and challenges, they are those who have seen them as just a part of life and have pushed ahead anyway, learning as they go. Your failures don’t mean that you are a failure, they just mean you need to reassess the situation and the way you approach it and come at it from another angle.

4. Make yourself the priority – Part of boosting your self-worth is accepting you are worthy of your own love. Make time for yourself. Take care of yourself when you’re passing through a difficult time. Say ‘no’ when you have to and don’t feel bad about it. Make your needs clear to other people and ask for what you need. (If you have real difficulty saying ‘no’, then look for some assertiveness training, or get a book on the subject.)

Employ these 4 simple tips and you will be well on your way to boosting your self-esteem. Above all, remember to be kind to yourself and give yourself just as much love as you give to the important people in your life. You absolutely deserve it!
