Affirmation: Silence the voice of self-criticism

Would You Like to Stay Connected?

I silence the voice of self-criticism.

I don’t even hear self-criticism speak when it tries to get my attention.

It doesn’t have anything good to say. All it does is paralyze me on the road to self-improvement.

I will not allow self criticism to stop progress again.

I stop critical thoughts from taking up valuable space in my mind.

I expose self-criticism when it comes disguised as self-reflection or self-improvement.

The difference between the voice of self-criticism and self-improvement is that self-criticism focuses on what I have done wrong.  

Self-improvement looks to the future, my future.

Through positive reflection, I focus on my strengths to create a better me.

I avoid punishing myself or fixating about what I have done wrong in the past.

I strive to nurture my strong points and improve the other areas.

The voice of self-criticism attempts to fill me with shame by reminding me of my mistakes.

I boldly stand up to that voice by focusing on my positive interactions and successes, instead of repeating shameful thoughts over and again.

I surrender the areas of my life that need improvement to my Creator.

I give up trying to be perfect.

I surrender trying to be like anyone else

I surrender trying to be like everyone else.

I embrace being every bit of who I was created to be, no one on this planet can do that but me.

I will now extend grace and mercy toward myself.

I forgive myself for my shortcomings and accepting myself the way I am.

I acknowledge that I am a work in progress and I continue on my quest to be a better person.
I also acknowledge that every being on this planet has shortcomings and happens to be a work in progress. I am not alone. 

I am strengthened by staying positive about the future.

Today, I shut down self-criticism and focus on positive thoughts.

 I trade negative criticism for positive reflection in order to soar above and beyond my dreams.

What’s In There?:

1.    Do I recognize the difference between self-criticism and self-improvement?
2.    What are my three greatest strengths?
3.    What can I do to silence the voice of self-criticism when it creeps into my thoughts?
