5 Affirmations for Entrepreneurs
Sometimes what appears to be failure is the very pathway to our greatest success. Affirmations are a great way to reinforce our belief in our mission.
The entrepreneurial life is not for the faint-at-heart. It requires a special balance of unwavering belief and flexibility, disciple, consistency, courage, and a host of other skills and values. When things go well, we feel validated in our choices and strategy. But when things get tough, all we have is what we believe about our current experience.
Sometimes what appears to be failure is the very pathway to our greatest success. Affirmations are a great way to reinforce our belief in our mission and ourselves. Here are my top 5:
1. I am grateful and welcome (fill in the blank with your goal) into my life. For instance, I am grateful and welcome new, motivated clients into my life.
It all starts with gratitude, and openness to receive. Sometime we allow our negative experiences to make us jaded. It’s important to reaffirm our belief in the validity and inevitability of our goals; that their achievement is simply a matter of time.
2. Everything in my life is working toward a greater good.
Even when we perceive that things have gone wrong, we must trust in the wisdom of ‘failure’. Failure is always an illusion. Failure is the biggest stepping stone we have the fortune to experience, because if you are open to the lesson, it can be your speed-pass to success.
3. I release all patterns and behaviors that no longer serve me.
It is only human to cultivate habits. And sometimes we subconsciously develop habits that can sabotage our mission. It’s important not to shift into auto-pilot, and to remain awake and aware of what behaviors help and those that hinder.
4. Everything I need to move forward is within my grasp.
Happiness, success, anything we attain starts from the inside then manifests in our daily life. It’s not something we have to go in search of on the outside. So, it’s important to remind ourselves that within us, we already possess the seeds of our own success.
5. I am willing to practice and embody what it takes to achieve my goals.
Momentum is a very crucial ingredient of achievement. We get that momentum from our openness to do what needs to be done, to make necessary changes, and a commitment to habits that fuel our success.
