Can Affirmations Make Your Work Week Better?

By the time Monday arrives, the Sunday evening blues have run their course, and it’s time again to power through the workweek. How you choose to begin the week, your attitude, perception, and overall mindset can make a significant impact.

The know-how on being positive at work doesn’t always come easy, and if you’re dreading the coming week, there’s a decent chance that you will continue to experience dread and look for instances to confirm your feelings. This will enable you to focus on the negative, and believe it or not, attract it.

The beginning of a workweek is a fresh start we get every few days. While it can be a struggle, it doesn’t have to be. Things in life and careers are tough enough without us warranting an extra attitude adjustment on top of it. So, what can we do? How can we help that we’re stressed, booked, busy, and would rather be on vacation? A simple solution to this complicated question is to affirm ourselves.

Affirm What?

Affirmations are your quick fix, (yes, quick) to a brand-new attitude. Whatever your frustration or challenges that arise from the workplace, affirming yourself of what is, what isn’t, and what you’d like to be true is an effective way to influence your own experience positively. What could be better than having a say in your subconscious thoughts? This is what occurs when you train and remind yourself of your worth, purpose, and drive. This is what affirmations are all about.

Your Experience

You are the only one who knows your full experience. You have a unique insight into how you have arrived at exactly where you are right now. Don’t ever shortchange what you have been through and done to make things happen, including your failures.

Affirmations to try: “I have been through challenges, and they have served me well.”  “My time is and has always been valuable, and I have spent it exactly how it was meant to be spent up until this point.” “I am confident that I have the tools to proceed for what I am meant to do.”

Your Self Trust

Trusting yourself is not easy work, but you can nudge yourself along by affirming that you can rely on your word to yourself and others. Trusting yourself is something that others can sense, and creates an inclination for their trust as well, harmonizing your overall environment.

Affirmations to try: “I trust that I am exactly where I need to be.” “I trust that my intentions are true and that I will act on them accordingly.” “The challenges I face are opportunities.”

Your Capabilities

It can feel awkward to shove self-doubt to the side. This is because most people don’t often recognize self-doubt for what it is. It comes in various forms and looks like a fact. Affirming yourself of what you can do will help to take up open space for negativity and disguised self-doubt to take over.

Affirmations to try: “I am capable of all things I seek.” “I am committed to expanding my expertise daily.” “My potential is limitless.”

Your Imperfections

No one and I means nobody has gotten anywhere worth being in life without failure under their belt. We all fail and make mistakes to shape and grow. Identifying and understanding your weaknesses is a great way to remain compassionate with yourself. Affirming yourself that your shortcomings do not define you (if you even view them as such), is a power move.

Affirmations to try: “I am valuable despite my mistakes, in fact, and I am valuable because of them.” “I give myself permission to fail.” “ I am defined only by what I choose.”

If the question is whether or not affirmations can improve your workweek, and perhaps your work life—the answer is on you, GR8 one. That can be affirmed.
