New year, new beginnings, new hopes, new aspirations and new opportunities. To keep up with this new energy, most of us come up with new resolutions to stick by in the new year to make the very best of it.
Positive declarations are one of the simplest and most powerful tools for training our mind to grow and develop over time. With the resolutions in mind, we push ourselves in a positive way to strengthen our mind so that it doesn’t crumble under overwhelmingly stressful situations. Declarations hold us accountable and change the game for us.
If you haven’t made up your declarations yet but would like to begin this ritual in your own life, here’s a handpicked selection of powerful, positive declarations for you.
- “The biggest and most complex obstacle I will ever have to overcome is my mind. If I can overcome that, I can overcome anything.” This year promise yourself to not be an obstacle in the path of your own success.
- “Being positive does not mean ignoring the negative. Being positive means overcoming the negative. There is a big difference between the two.”
- “I will not get caught up in what could’ve been or should’ve been. I will look instead at the power and possibility of what is, right now.”
- “Patience is a genuine expression of confidence, acceptance, serenity, and faith in my own ability. It’s a sign of strength. I will practice it.”
- “Instead of getting angry, I will find the lesson. In place of envy, I will feel admiration. In place of worry, I will take positive action. In place of doubt, I will have faith.”
- “If the grass looks greener on the other side, it’s just life’s way of reminding me to water the grass I’m standing on. From now on I will be too busy watering my own grass to notice if yours is greener.”
- “I will practice gratitude, even in the midst of frustration and despair, so I can better see the positive possibilities around me.”
- “I cannot control exactly what happens in life, but I can control how I respond to it all. In my response is my greatest power.”
- “I will stop focusing on how stressed I am and remember how blessed I am. Complaining won’t change my reality, but a positive attitude will.”
- “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions. It’s about not letting my fear decide my future.”
