Repeat After Me, You Are Worthy

Your mind will always believe what you feed it.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

How often do we believe the negative thoughts that have been drummed into our psyche instead of believing that we are capable and valuable?

We may believe we are not capable of doing something because we have had to face setbacks and disappointments which make us doubt our true capabilities and we give into defeat. Or, perhaps, the negative voices in our minds have stemmed from years of discouragement or mistreatment from others. Where ever these negative thoughts were born, they have become so ingrained in our minds that we start to believe them and in turn believe we are in fact stupid, not strong enough to handle it, not good enough, not qualified enough or not lovable.

The reality is quite the opposite.

The truth is, you, my love, have been made for a purpose and need to see yourself as a woman who is worthy. It’s time to stop listening to the negative untruths and start listening to the real truth. You are good enough, you are strong enough and you can accomplish what you want.

Your mind will always tell you to believe what it hears. Repeat after me: I am capable, I am strong, I am courageous, I am determined, I am fierce, I am worthy of love.

No matter what is going on in your life or what other people are telling you, you ultimately have the power to feed your mind with positive encouragement every day. It may not be easy and it may be a slow process to rewire your thoughts and the images you have created of yourself, but the more you practice focusing on your positives and the more you take chances, the easier it will become.

Remember, if your mind allowed you to believe the negative thoughts, it can certainly be trained to allow you to believe in yourself again. Feed your mind with encouragement every day and your mind will begin to tell you, “You’ve got this girl”.
