Your thoughts shape your identity — your womanhood. Being an empowered woman starts from cultivating empowering thoughts in your head. How? Here are the best practices you must observe everyday.
1. Scrutinize your thoughts – What kind of thoughts fill your mental landscape? Do you have doubtful or negative thoughts? If you have, be ready with the fact that change cannot happen in your life. The first step to change or empowerment is to know what kind of thoughts rest in your mind.
2. Practice mindfulness – You cannot control the elements that influence the creation of thoughts in your head. However, you can practice mindfulness in order to filter the kind of thoughts that reign inside your head. By practicing mindfulness, you refuse to accept your thoughts as real. When negative thoughts are disarmed in your head, they can no longer keep your mind and body from doing what is best.
3. Practice self-compassion – Self-compassion involves creating a relationship with yourself. How does your dialogue with your own self go? Do you encourage yourself or do you despise yourself? Be compassionate to your inner being and lift yourself up by thinking positive thoughts.
4. Have a paradigm shift – A paradigm shift is a fundamental change in your underlying assumptions that influence how you approach people or circumstances. Your thoughts create your reality. If your thoughts are stuck with old concepts that don’t contribute to your self-improvement, drop the all and engage in a paradigm shift instead of wasting hours recounting all the things that you don’t want to do yet you’re able to do. Command your thoughts by directing them to your goals.
