Striving For Excellence D12 – Passion Affirmations

Follow your Passion

 

Many people hear the term “passion affirmations” and wonder what affirmations could possibly be, and why they should use them. Passion affirmations are statements that will activate your brain to focus on and attain the goals you set for yourself.

These statements often are descriptive of the feelings or behaviors you would like to possess in any given situation. They may remind you about your self-worth or the importance of your passions.

How Can You Use Passion Affirmations?

Passion affirmations can be used in moments when you might be having some negative inner dialogue, or when you are second-guessing your desire to pursue your passions.

In those moments of doubt, you may want to use a passion affirmation like, “I have no need to do what others think I should. I am strengthened by doing the things I am purposed and love to do.” You’ll want to believe this even if it’s a challenge in the beginning.

* You are reaffirming the statement and making it your personal truth every time you say your passion affirmation out loud.

There are also passion affirmations that can help you overcome guilt that you may feel when you indulge in your passion. We all have a right to pursue our passions, as long as they are in balance with our responsibilities. There is nothing wrong with pursuing a passion. You deserve to spend time on you.

When you are having one of those days where you feel guilty for enjoying your favorite hobby or past time you can say, “I am actively involved in my hobbies. It gives me energy and strength after a hard day.”

* You are giving your mind permission to replace negative thoughts with positive ones when you use affirmations.

Passion affirmations not only help you discover your passions, but also enable you to live a more passionate life. This positive dialogue will become second nature in time as it pushes out negative feelings and self-doubt. Being passionate is a way of expressing love for yourself. You should indulge in your passions and remember that they are good for you and those around you.

    I love this! I recently reviewed a fabulous book, Drops of Awesome, that talks about this and gets you to see all the positive things you’re doing in your life instead of constantly harping on what you can’t or aren’t doing. Being positive will most certainly uplift you in many ways!!
