Think Happy Thoughts: Weekly Affirmations for the Self Employed

Like many people, I struggle with negative self-talk. People who interact with me for even a matter of a few hours notice that I am my own worst critic.

Despite how deeply ingrained this habit is, I have improved. With concerted effort, I am able to quiet the negative self-talk, if not completely replace it with positive messages. (Note: I said “improved,” not “perfected.”) I am better at it today than I was yesterday. I was better yesterday than I was five years ago. I was better five years ago than I was 10 years ago. You get the idea.

As pop-psychology as it may be, the positive affirmation works.

Since they work for me (and millions of other people) in achieving personal goals, I've decided to apply them to my business goals as well. And to share them with you.

For my fellow sole proprietors, business owners, freelancers, aspiring entrepreneurs, CEOs and WAHMs, I offer you Affirmations for the Self Employed. (see above!)

Enjoy…and let me know what you think.
