Using Affirmations Want Success? Then Say So!
"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right" ~ Henry Ford (1863-1947), founder of the Ford Motor Co.

Chances are, there have been mornings when you've woken up and said, "Today is going to be a great day!" Or you've groaned, "It's going to be a long day!"

Whatever your first thought, it likely set the tone for your day. But you can open the door to positive change by consciously rejecting any negativity. Read our article, Using Affirmations, for more on this.

Also, you can find out how to identify and challenge negative feelings and moods with our article, Cognitive Restructuring, and our quiz, Are You a Positive or a Negative Thinker?

A Final Note

Sometimes, the only thing that limits us is our own fearful, internal voice. But we can silence our doubts by clearly telling our subconscious self, "I can do this! I have the skills and the strength, and I am taking ownership of this challenge!"

Next week, you can find out how to handle customers who make unrealistic demands.

Have a great week!
