Why Your Everyday Positive Affirmation & Talks Are Not Working

Why Your Everyday Positive Affirmation & Talks Are Not Working
Positive Affirmation: When I began building my self-confidence, one of the things I prioritized was speaking to myself positively. I had read it worked like a charm, both from the Bible and other sources. However, after a long time of using it, I kept wondering why it was not working. I doubled my efforts, started standing in front of the mirror and talking to myself.
.
None of it worked.

Anytime I find myself in certain triggering situations, my self-esteem will plummet, and I will be back to point zero. That continued until I discovered something. I had been doing the right thing the wrong way. My tongue was not the first problem, my 𝙏𝙃𝙊𝙐𝙂𝙃𝙏𝙎 were.
.
I was merely saying things that I didn’t really believe in. It was like trying to fill up a basket with water. 𝗜𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲! Using affirmations or positive self-talk is not bad, but you must ensure that your thoughts and belief system align with whatever you’re saying.

Here are a few things you can do to help improve positive thoughts. Read the Bible, take time to meditate on it, surround yourself with people who help you up, not talk you down, learn to pause whenever those negative thoughts come up, practice solitude (this is not the same as meditation).
