You are in charge of your life. Hold yourself accountable for the outcomes you create. Celebrate the fact that you have the power to determine your own future. 

Your experiences are shaped by your thinking. Even obstacles have a value when you can see it. You can develop convictions that will help you to feel happier and achieve more, regardless of the situation.

Consider these empowering beliefs that you can start using today to transform your life through the power of positive thinking.

1.     I understand my potential. You can achieve amazing results when you put your mind to it. Feel excited about reaching your true potential.

3.     I learn from mistakes. You can make setbacks work for you by focusing on the lessons that they contain. Flubbing one bad date, one bad job interview, can teach you how to ace the next one.

 9.     I take responsibility. You are in charge of your life. Hold yourself accountable for the outcomes you create. Celebrate the fact that you have the power to determine your own future.

10.     I apply effort. Figure out your definition of success so you know what is worth working for. Give yourself credit when you’re making progress rather than comparing yourself to others.

11.     I leverage my strengths. You have your own individual strengths that you can draw on. Figure out what you’re good at and what you want to do. Let that knowledge guide your choices.

12.     I listen to feedback. Ask for feedback so you can enhance your performance and show others that you respect their point of view. You grow faster when you gather solid input that you can translate into action.

13.     I ask for help. Expand your capabilities by building a sturdy support network. Remember to ask your friends and family when you are in need...even if you just need help with carpool or a night off.

14.     I connect with others. Moral support counts too. Surround yourself with loving and encouraging tribe. Join a social or professional group with members who share your interest in what you are passionate about or who share similar interests....for me that's YOGA!

15.     I recognize opportunities. Stay alert for promising openings. You may meet a new friend while you’re standing in line to buy your morning coffee. Just the other day-- this happen to me!

16.     I try new things. Be open to experimentation. Practice that yoga headstand that scares you, fall on your ass and then laugh about it!  Break the rules you have set for yourself. You may uncover new connections and relationships or even talents. 

The way you think determines your attitude, happiness and productivity. Question your old assumptions so you can replace them with a new sense of certainty about yourself and your future. Adopt empowering beliefs that build up your confidence and prepare you for greater success.
