Winning the Battle of Stress for Entrepreneurs: Day 5

Day 5

 

Affirmations are powerful statements of intent. They work for the individual because they are written by the individual, and therefore the affirmation is uniquely relative to the situation. Used a great deal within self-motivational techniques, they are also a great tool for stress management. Remember that to resolve stress, the individual should look at the root of the problem and affirmations can be targeted directly at this.

 

They can be used daily. Morning and evening works best but the beauty with affirmations are that they can be adapted to suit that individual’s need and to endorse positive feelings at times most needed.

 

By their very nature, affirmations have to be written in a positive style such as:

 

I am going to resolve this problem today.

I am going to do well in my job interview because I am the best person for the job

I will not be bullied or get upset today

 

Affirmations must never be written or used in any manner other than a fully positive slant. Written and repeated sufficiently, they endorse a powerful message within the subconscious and conscious mind, if they are not written with a positive message, then the benefits will be limited for example:

 

I hope to do well in the my job interview today

 

The difference between statements is immediate. One is a powerhouse of energy and the other is a ‘wishy- washy’ statement of hope.

 

To utilise the true benefits of affirmations, it’s important to consider where they are needed the most. Then write them to suit those needs. Different variations of the same message can be used too:

 

I am not going to get stressed today

I will remain calm and in control today

I will solve that problem and I will feel great

 

Once written, they should be repeated – aloud, as many times as is necessary. They can also be repeated throughout the day and last thing at night. When repeating the affirmations, just ensure that they are said with conviction and emphasise key words that endorse the positive message:

 

 

I am not going to get stressed today

I will remain calm and in control today

I will solve that problem and feel great
