Anything worth getting requires effort. And usually, you have to do hard things in order to get what you really want. But that’s easier said than done. Doing hard things is scary. It’s much easier to stay in your comfort zone where it’s safe. But if you want to achieve great things, you have to be willing to do what it takes – even when it’s hard.
You have to get in the right mindset in order to do hard things in life. Here are 10 affirmations to help convince you to do hard things:
1. I Choose To Do What Moves Me Towards What I Want
There’s almost always a choice.
For instance, you can sit back and do something easy (think YouTube, social media, or watching TV) or you can get up and do something that will contribute to your goal (like going for a run, working on that project, or networking). It’s up to you what you do with your time.
Affirming that you choose to do what moves you towards what you want will help you make the tougher choice when it matters most.
So how do we make the harder choice?
Ultimately, making the harder choice comes down to understanding our own values and priorities.
What are we willing to sacrifice in order to achieve our goals?
What are we willing to put up with in the short term in order to avoid potential problems in the future?
Answering questions like these can help us make the tough decisions that are necessary to achieve our objectives.
2. I Am Not Afraid Of Failure
Failure is part of the process. You can’t be afraid of it. Even if you start to feel like you can’t do anything right, keep going.
If you’re never failing, you’re not pushing yourself hard enough. Embrace failure and learn from it.
One way to embrace failure is to view it as a learning opportunity. If you fail while doing something hard, it’s not a waste of time, it’s a lesson. It will help you move forward and have success in the future.
3. I Believe In Myself
In order to accomplish anything difficult in life, you must first believe in yourself. It is only when we have faith in our own abilities that we are able to push ourselves to do things we never thought possible.
When we doubt ourselves, we become paralyzed by fear and indecision. However, when we have confidence in our own skills and abilities, we are able to take risks and confidently pursue our goals.
Of course, it is not always easy to believe in yourself. There will be times when you doubt your ability to succeed. But, it is important to remember that everyone feels this way at times.
The key is to stay positive and keep moving forward, even when things get tough or you have to do hard things.
Every time you overcome a challenge, you will become stronger and more confident. Before long, you will find that you are capable of accomplishing anything you set your mind to.
So believe in yourself today, so that you can do the hard things tomorrow!
4. I Am Willing To Work Hard
Anyone who has ever accomplished something difficult knows that it takes hard work to achieve great things. This is because big goals usually require stepping outside of your comfort zone and putting in the extra effort to make things happen.
When you’re willing to do hard things, you signal to yourself and others that you’re committed to achieving your goal. This commitment is essential in order to maintain the focus and motivation needed to see things through.
Additionally, willingness to put in the hard work is often contagious, inspiring those around you to also invest their time and energy.
So remember, if you want to do hard things, be willing to work hard first.
5. I Enjoy Doing Things That Are Uncomfortable
When something is uncomfortable, it means you’re growing. It means you’re pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone. And that’s a good thing.
When you’re struggling to do something hard, think about why you’re doing what you’re doing and what the end goal is.
If you keep your eye on the prize, then you will enjoy the process more, especially if it’s uncomfortable.
6. I Am Resilient
When we believe that we are resilient, we give ourselves the strength to face challenges and overcome obstacles. We become more confident and are more likely to take risks. As a result, we are more likely to achieve our goals.
So why do you have to believe that you are resilient in order to do hard things? Because it is only by believing in ourselves that we can tap into our true potential, do the hard things, and achieve greatness.
7. I Am Grateful That I Can Do Hard Things
If you can’t be grateful for the obstacles and challenges you face, then you’ll never be able to overcome them. It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well, but it’s during the tough times that gratitude is most important.
When you’re facing a difficult situation, take a moment to appreciate the fact that you’re strong enough to handle it. Being grateful for your strength and resilience will give you the motivation and courage you need to keep going.
So next time you’re feeling overwhelmed and have to do a hard thing, remember that gratitude is the key to unlocking your inner strength. By being grateful for the hard things in life, you’ll discover that you have the power to overcome anything.
8. I Am Capable Of Achieving Great Things
When we believe we are capable of achieving great things, we open up a world of possibilities. We start to see challenges as something to be conquered rather than avoided. And we find the courage to take risks, even when there’s no guarantee of success.
So if you want to convince yourself to do hard things, don’t wait for someone else to believe in you. First, you must believe in yourself. Then, and only then, will you be able to convince yourself to do hard things.
9. Doing Hard Things Is Worth It
Anyone who has ever accomplished anything difficult will tell you that it was worth it in the end. But what they don’t always mention is that, in order to push through the tough times, they had to believe that it was worth it while doing the hard things.
It’s easy to give up when things get hard, and that’s why it’s so important to have conviction in your goals. Otherwise, you’ll never find the strength to continue when things get tough.
And trust me, things will get tough. That’s just how life is.
But if you can convince yourself that pushing through the hardships is worth it, then you’ll be able to accomplish anything you set your mind to.
10. I Deserve To Achieve My Goals
We all have goals that we want to achieve in life. Whether it’s becoming a successful business owner, losing weight, or finishing a degree, we need to believe that we deserve to reach our goals in order to convince ourselves to do the hard work required.
It’s easy to talk about wanting something, but it’s much harder to actually go out and get it.
This is because our mind is constantly telling us that we’re not good enough, that we’ll never achieve our goals, and that we should just give up.
However, if we can switch our mindset and convince ourselves that we deserve to achieve our goals, then we’ll be more likely to put in the effort required to make them a reality. We all have the potential to be great, but it’s up to us to believe that we deserve it.
Use these affirmations to help you get in the right mindset to do hard things. Remember, anything worth having requires effort. But if you’re willing to work hard and push yourself, you can achieve anything you want in life.
