Positive self talk for freedom from worry and Anxiety affirmations

People worry about all kinds of things. If you are like most people, you know you often worry about junk you should not worry about at all! Unfortunately, many people do not know what they can do about this, or that they can in fact do anything at all.

If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.
    Dale Carnegie

Well, luckily for you there is something you can do. And that is to change your mental attitude; of which, one way is through positive affirmations or positive self talk. Shad Helmstetter, author of the incredibly well-received book "What To Say When You Talk To Yourself" quite literally wrote the book on positive affirmations and positive thinking. Within this article I have included a list of positive affirmations excerpted from his book that can help solve your worry problems. This positive self talk also doubles as very effective affirmations for anxiety.

List of positive affirmations

I do not worry. I am in control of my own thinking, and I think only those thoughts which create and fill the best in me.

My mind is constantly in tune with the positive. It is bright and cheerful, enthusiastic and full of good, positive thoughts and ideas.

I am able to relax easily and comfortably in my body and in my mind. I am calm, confident and self-assured.

My mind is orderly and well organized. I consciously choose what I think, and I always choose those thoughts which are the most positive and beneficial for me.

All of my thoughts create healthiness within me.

My mind dwells only on those thoughts which create more harmony, balance and well-being within me. And in the world around me.

I automatically, and always, I think in a decisive and determined way.

I am full of resolution and the absolute insurance of the best possible outcome in everything I do.

I only look at the world around me in the bright healthy light of optimism and self-assurance.

I do only those things which are best for me. I create the best within myself, I attract the best in others, and I find the best in the world around me.

I willingly, and without fail, take care of the duties and obligations which I have accepted for myself.

I commit only to those responsibilities which I know I can fill.

I focus the attention of my mind only on those things that I can do something about. If I cannot affect it or direct it, I accept it.

I keep my mind too busy thinking good, healthy, positive, instructive, and productive thoughts to ever have any time for worry.

I control the thoughts I choose. No thought at any time can dwell in my mind without my approval or permission.

I never worry.

Will these affirmations work?

So, if you are trying to solve some unwanted worry problems then take a few of Shad Helmstetter's positive affirmation quotes that really resonate with you. Write them down on a small card and carry these quotes with you (in your wallet, pocket, taped to your mirror, be creative!). Whenever you feel worried then read the card to yourself and be affirmed that you can improve your mental attitude and that you are improving.

And remember: If you don't do anything, nothing will change!

Dale Carnegie was spot on when he said, It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep. Thanks for the reminder. I know positive affirmations work but it can be hard to switch off the worry button.
