Post It On Your Bathroom Mirror!

Experts say that one of the best things we can do to combat in-securities is to focus on our assets. We should write down those things that we have going for us and put them in a visible place where we see it everyday.

I totally agree. I believe this is one of the best things that you can do for yourself. Whether it be an insecurity or any thought that you want to change, make a choice to write down your positive attributes and focus on them.

Today I want to encourage you that optimism is at hand. Know that you can erase those defeatist negative thoughts and replace them with encouraging and uplifting thoughts.


Maybe someone told you that you’d never accomplish your goal. They probably said you weren’t strong enough. No, I dare you to combat that thought today. Know that you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you.

You may have grown up in an environment where you were encouraged not to dream. You were probably told that it’s pointless to dream and that your dreams won’t come to pass. No, the scripture says that you should write the vision and make it plain. Dare to dream today! There are endless possibilities out there awaiting you!

You may have restrictions on you. You may feel like you’re limited to what you can accomplish in life. Because of this you might feel like you’re in bondage. No, you should believe contrary. The scripture says whom the son sets free is truly free indeed.

Anything thought that has been holding you back from your destiny, negate it with a powerful scripture or affirmation of some type. Write it down on a post-it note and stick it on your bathroom mirror. Every time you wake up and look in the mirror, you will be reminded of your strengths and not your weaknesses.

Know that you can accomplish anything that you set your mind to do. But understand that it starts with your thoughts. If you can believe it then you can achieve it. Today, take a hand full of post-it notes and write down that which you have going for you. Post it on your bathroom mirror and watch supernatural miracles happen as you charge forth on your journey of life!

    I like this idea Jarrod!

    It’s a form of affirmation that you just can’t escape ;) With a post-it staring back at you, you have no choice but to repeat it and believe it.

    Thanks for sharing,

      Self-affirmation is something they should teach in school. How to develop and have a healthy psyche takes a back seat in most forms of socialization. The main focus is to turn you into a good little citizen that gets a job and pays his/her taxes. Little do we realize how much damage is done by negative influences around us, whether it be a less than desirable family environment or too many brushes with disaster or personal failure.

      Nobody goes out of their way to help teach people to love themselves. In fact it’s discouraged because it might result in vanity. And yet a healthy self-image is vital to being a truly fully functional, positive member of society.

        I love it! I totally agree, Blog Angel! Unfortunately a poor self image is developed early on. If society taught everyone the importance of a positive self image and positive thinking, the world would be a better place.

        Thank you so much for sharing!!

        Great reminder Jarrod, thank you!

        Have you read the book by David Emerald, The Power of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic)? It made such a different for me. David describes living with a creator attitude, someone who focuses on outcomes rather than problems.

        I think the two of you would agree on a lot of things. Let me know what you think.

        best thoughts,

          I love the idea, but I’m sure my parents would be angry when they found 100 sticky notes on the bathroom mirror :P

          If you are reminded of your goals every day, it becomes almost a challenge to beat them. Great post, Jarrod.
