As many have experienced for themselves, one can change their disposition to one of eternal sunshine by using positive self esteem affirmations. The self-confidence you gain will, also, not go unnoticed. More and more people are coming to understand how powerful they are for replacing negative thoughts with positive, progressive thoughts.

People tend to laugh at the idea of self-improvement. Unfortunately, this means that they will miss out on a lot of important things in life. But the great thing is, you can choose differently. This article will provide you with a solid blueprint for writing positive self esteem affirmations which you can use to become everything you've always hoped to be. . . and more!

Think About What High Self Esteem Means To You
It is important that we have a clear goal in mind when we write our positive self esteem affirmations. In your head, think of a person who you feel has high self esteem. What actions do this person take that let you know they have high self esteem? Which actions of theirs show they are confident? By understanding the answers to these questions and coming to realize what it means to you for a person to have high self esteem, you will be able to include more meaning and direction in your positive self esteem affirmations.

How To Structure Your Positive Self Esteem Affirmations
There are four basic principles which you want to make sure are included in each affirmation that you write.

You want to make sure that each is written in the present tense. This is very important. This makes it clear to your subconscious that you are prepared to act right now and will not put it off for another day. By doing so you will be much more likely to take action. After all, you experience your life today. Tomorrow is just an idea.

It must be written so that it is, both, positive and supportive. This means that you will want to avoid using words such as “don't, " “stop, " “not, " and “no. " An affirmation is much more effective when it informs you of what to do rather than what not to do. Telling yourself to stop can easily turn into negative self-criticism. For example, It is much more effective to say “I am an incredible person who always treats people with kindness" than “Stop being mean to people. ".

It must refer to you directly. If written in the third-person it becomes too impersonal. Although, this may make it more comfortable, it is much less likely to inspire you into action each day. It must be clear that the statement is referring to you. It is very important that your positive self esteem affirmations are written to be action-oriented. It must be clear that it is about taking action. It is very important that your statements refer to something which can be experienced or applied directly to your life. Here are a few examples to get you started:

"I am confident that I can handle any situation that comes my way. "
"I complete important tasks immediately, without hesitation. "
"I am flexible and forgiving to others. "
"I am intelligent and decisive. ".

Each of the above is present-tense, supportive of distinct goals, positive, written in the first-person, and inspires action.

Rehearse Your Positive Self Esteem Affirmations Out Loud
The most important thing about applying your positive self esteem affirmations is that you do so consistently. The effects will be much more helpful and long-lasting if you keep on track by reciting them out loud twice daily. Try to avoid using a strictly monotone voice. Get into it, have some fun and maybe show some excitement.

For even quicker results, looking into a mirror as you read them. If you look yourself right in the eye you will let yourself know that you mean business. ;- ).
