Welcome to Part 5 of the series on How to Shift Your Mindset from “I’m Not Good Enough” To “I Am Worthy” using positivity.

In Part 1 we talked about the fact that you are worthy and enough exactly as you are, simply because you exist. 

Nothing and no one can make you more or less worthy than you already are.

It is natural and inherent. You were born worthy and you will leave this world worthy, regardless of what anyone says or believes (including you!)

In this article, we’ll be talking about the power of positivity and how you can use it to build your sense of self-worth.

Let’s dive in! 

The Power Of Positivity

We hear this line so much that it’s almost become a cliche that we throw away.

But there are few things more powerful than having a positive mindset.

Scientific studies have proven that optimistic people are less likely to catch a common cold or flu, and optimistic patients are more likely to recover than patients with a pessimistic mindset.

Optimistic people are more likely to feel confident, and confident people are more likely to:

  • Get the job and salary they want
  • Get the romantic partner they want
  • Build the career they want
  • Live a life they love

The power that a positive mindset has to transform every area of your life quickly is unbelievable.

It can’t be that simple, many say.

It is…and it isn’t.

In the previous articles, we talked about how our brain’s negativity bias and Inner Critic constantly bombard us with negative beliefs that feel true…even when they aren’t.

It takes a great deal of focus and discipline to combat these natural negative thought patterns, and THAT is not easy.

But it is possible.

Here are a few ways that you can start shifting your mindset from negative to positive today.

Celebrate Small Wins

We talked about this a lot in Part 4 of this series, but I want to touch on it again today because it’s so important.

Acknowledge and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small. 

This helps build confidence and proves that you are capable of achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself now and in the future.

Every moment above ground is worth celebrating and enjoying. There is no win too “small” to celebrate. 

Making it to the top of a flight of stairs is a win. Making it safely from one location to the next is a win. Writing a page, paragraph, or even sentence of the document you’ve been dreading writing is a win. 

Finding the courage to step outside of your comfort zone and ask that person out and actually show up for the date is a win, no matter how it turns out.

The more you focus on and search for small wins to celebrate, the more successful and fulfilling your life will feel.

And when you feel successful, you start to believe you’re successful.

And when you believe that you’re successful, you start to act and think in ways a successful person would.

And the more you act and think like a successful person, the more success you’ll attract and manifest. 

And alas, you will be the successful person you’ve always wanted to be.

Act As If

Neville Goddard always talks about how “the feeling is the secret”. Acting “as if” is the easiest way for you to “become”.

Actors do it all the time to embody the characters they’ve become known for.

Athletes imitate the sports icons they admire until they become good enough to play beside them or even surpass their greatest records.

I’ve read stories of how people with crippling insecurity and social anxiety acted “as if” they were confident until they evolved into a social butterfly that’s the life of the party.

Sometimes they acted like a character they saw on TV. Sometimes they acted like the popular kid they wanted to be like in school.

In every case, they eventually became who they always wanted to be, or better.

And they took every “little” win they experienced on their journey from pretending to becoming as a sign that they were on the right path. 

These stories may be anecdotal in nature, but a quick YouTube search will show you that the results speak for themselves.

The “little” wins matter. Count them all.

Surround Yourself with Positivity

The environment you’re in and the people you surround yourself with can have a huge impact on your mindset.

  • Prioritize Supportive Relationships: Spend time with people who uplift you and believe in your worth. Life is too short and wonderful for you to waste time with people that make you feel like crap.
  • Intentionally Limit The Amount of Negativity In Your Life: BE someone that uplifts you and makes it easy for you to believe in your inherent worthiness.

    This means being disciplined about your negative self-talk.

    Remember The 1 -or-3 Method:

    Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, about yourself or others, immediately think 3 positive thoughts after. Even if you don’t believe them. Train yourself to make positivity a habit.

    Social Media, too: This also means limiting the amount of negativity you consume through social media, music, and television shows. Everything you listen to has the potential to become embedded in your subconscious mind.

    And, since we’ve already discussed how thoughts can create emotions in Part 2 of this series, remember that everything that can influence the way you think has the power to influence the way you feel.

    And since the way you feel has the power to influence the way you act and what you attract, I suggest you don’t take this lightly.

    So while reading that gossip site might seem entertaining in the moment, pay close attention to the way you think and feel while reading it. If anything starts to feel too heavy, weighs you down, or makes you angry and combative, I recommend staying away from it.
  • Use Positive Affirmations: Regularly affirm your worth and capabilities. Try “I am capable,” “I am deserving of happiness,” and “I am worthy just because I am” can be powerful.
