How to Encourage Yourself: 21 Practical Tips
Encourage yourself, as used here, is a reference to inspiring your own courage and confidence. Notice in I Samuel 30:6 (KJV) that David encouraged himself. No one came to his rescue. This article is a sketch overview of the free e-booklet by the same title.
If you just keep on living, there will be times when you will be tempted to be discouraged. Your confidence and courage will be in short supply.
You may have problems with your health. People who you thought would be by your side may forsake you. And just about everyone knows about how money can get short, even when bills are getting longer.
In order to stay confident, you would do well to understand some foundational matters. Among them are making sure you are saved, accepting the Bible as authoritative truth, and learning to meditate.
You would do well to learn how to "reframe" situations. Learn how to see things from a Christian perspective. There are three tips under "foundation" and five under "reframing," in the free e-booklet below.
You are going to have to work on "lessening the attention that you give to the bad." I forget the speaker's name, but she said, "Everyone doesn't deserve a front row seat in your mind."
And then you need to "increase the amount of attention that you give to the good." Among the tips mentioned here are cultivating supportive relationships, having fun, and taking care of your health.
There are three tips under "lessening the bad" and nine under "increasing the good."
You cannot count on anyone to give you courage and confidence. You need to learn how to encourage yourself. This booklet can change your life and the lives of your loved ones.
