Loving Others Means Loving Yourself First

Negative self talk and negative energy affects you in more ways than one. Ever felt stuck in the rut and not knowing how to get out of it? Do you know that having negative thoughts may damage the relationships you have with your loved ones?

The purpose of this article, is to challenge you to get out of the rut, with some simple tips! How can you do so? This is through making time early in the morning when all is at peace, to pray and listen to God. You can help yourself maintain a positive frame of mind-which will help with positive self-talk-by surrounding yourself with positive energy in your life.

Try adding the following elements to your life:

1) Listen to Uplifting Messages
Listening to a fast beat music has been proven to aid you in your gym workout. Similarly, an uplifting message, can be great for developing positive self-talk! Very often, I download Chip Ingram’s podcasts the night before and listen to them on my way to work in the morning. This gives me the much needed encouraging message for the day. You are what you immerse yourself with.

2) Read Inspirational Books: Books on strength, personal power, enlightenment, or self help can be good resources to help you change your outlook and the things you say to yourself. However, do make sure that this is not a spur of the moment sprint, but rather a marathon where you persevere. These inspirational books should aid you in the direction of your goal in the long run. I am constantly uplift by reading these inspirational books, of which my favorite author is John Maxwell on leadership and goal setting.

3) Surround Yourself with Positive People: One of the most important ways you can get (and of course keep) positive energy in your life is with the company you keep. Do your friends uplift you, or bring you down? Are these people whom you call your friend accusatory, critical or uplifting and sincere? Ideal friendships provide support when you’re down, fun when you are up, provide wisdom when you are lost, and have a general positive regard. Good friends can inspire you to reach greater heights, helping you soar to the highest and reminding you of your purpose. They see your strengths and prod you along the right away. Pay attention to how your friends make you feel, and if they are less than supportive, start putting your energy and time toward people who are better suited to be your friend.

Many Singaporean women find it a challenge juggling work and life, and will seek greater opportunities which allow them to work from home.
