The Power Of Positive Affirmations
WHAT ARE AFFIRMATIONS?
The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
Affirmations can be what ever you want them to be; good, bad or down right ugly depending on your level of awareness and desire to change those thoughts.
Lately, there has been a lot of buzz on the net when it comes to using affirmations so here is the scoop on how they work and how to work them.
What’s Happening In Our Thoughts
How many times do you verbally beat yourself up in a day? It’s OK (not OK) because we all do it, but GOOD NEWS! It can be changed by replacing it with other words. Words are powerful things, so let’s use those words for good and not eeeeeviiiilllll….
Your thoughts form your character and how you interact with the world. They also determine your level of success personally and spiritually and how others relate towards you.
Life experience plays a HUGE factor in self talk/affirmations. Things that happened when you were a kid, what a teacher might have said to you in Grade 6 (good or bad), parents, friends, neighbors, bosses etc. can rear their ugly heads when something not so cool happens. Most people punish themselves by repeating negative thoughts if they’ve made a mistake or someone criticizes them. This is when that gremlin sneaks in and cheats us by using defeating, unpleasant and harmful words causing our thoughts to punish us when there is no need for punishment. If it happens over and over again it starts to take a toll on the psyche and our perception of self worth. Negative thoughts are like a blood sucker that slows your brain down. Because the subconscious mind believes those bad things you are saying as truth, it attracts bad situations and problems into your life because, “Hey, why would you lead you the wrong way?”
Let’s Change These Mind Games Up A Little
Our thoughts determine our quality of life, so the head games we play inside will determine the quality of our day.
Optimistic and positive thoughts create a ‘happy zappy’ effect which helps stimulate growth of nerve connections, supports brain growth, increases serotonin which creates a sense of well-being, improves cognition by increasing mental productivity, improves your ability to analyze and think, increases attentiveness and of course leads to more happy thoughts. Happy people are more creative, think better and well…are just better.
Positive affirmations can have a spiritual force about them. Like a mantra they need to be in the NOW, strong, clear and to the point.
A great way to start a positive affirmation is to speak it as if it is happening right now.
I AM A SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR vs I will be a successful entrepreneur
I HAVE A STRONG AND GROWING BUSINESS vs My business will grow strong and successful
PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO ME BECAUSE I HAVE VALUE vs People will be attracted to be because I have value
See how those statements are written in the ‘now’ as opposed to eventually. By speaking your truth NOW, your now will start to be your truth.
Belief In Your Words
Sometimes you give yourself push back while saying your affirmations, so be very clear and concise with what you really want in your world. When those dream snatchers creep in be firm and direct by immediately focusing on what want and erasing everything else. Push back those thoughts and stay firm on what you believe, that you deserve the world and every success it has to offer. You are the master of your mind, take charge and kick all negativity in the ass.
