Developing a positive mindset is one of the most powerful strategies to turn your life around. Positive affirmations can help develop a powerful and positive attitude to life, which are essential elements in living a successful and healthy life.
Positive affirmations are essentially positive thoughts or statements about some outcome that you wish to see manifest in your life. The daily repetition of these affirmations has the power to impress the subconscious mind and trigger it into positive action, thereby transforming your habits, behaviour, mental attitudes and reactions.
The very first thing you need to look at before creating your own personalised affirmations is to visualise your goal. Be specific and be sure to put in all the details – the outcome, the behaviours, attitudes and traits you would like to see yourself develop in order to get there. Visualisation is the key – if you want a new car, put a picture of the car you want in a place you’ll see frequently during the day.
Make sure to only use positive words and phrases when creating your personal affirmations, for example, if trying to lose weight, don’t use the phrases “I need to lose weight” or “I look fat”; instead say “I am slim”. Also, use the present tense because by doing so, you say things as if they are already true, and not as if you would like them to be true.
The sceptic in you could ask: can affirmations really make a difference in my life? Listen to what your inner voice is telling yourself day after day. Is it the voice of Mr. Negative or Mr. Positive? Few people are as optimistic or positive as they should be. If Mr. Negative is more dominant than Mr. Positive, positive affirmations could be the way to reprogram your thinking and vanquish the negative patterns that have been holding you back from the success you hope to achieve.
Empower and Motivate Yourself to Achieve Success with Daily Affirmations
Something very important even before you starting saying your affirmations is to know that you need to visualize it! Visualization is a very powerful tool to use for almost any purpose. In order to give more credibility to an affirmation, visualizing it can bring it to a whole other level of reality. This reality in the mind’s eye helps to create a positive energy that centers itself in following the affirmation to its goal’s end. See it! Than say it!
Other important facts to reminder you with your affirmations success are to avoid common mistakes such as giving up too easily and vary the affirmations too much. These two mistakes are the most common reasons why goals are not reached even with the assistance of positive affirmation.
Creating a routine of sorts helps to reinforce the affirmation daily and thus case the lasting effect to build upon itself. The idea is that every time the affirmation is verbalized or used the resulting mind set and confidence is magnified. Thus by giving up too early in the race towards the goal the affirmation does not get the chance to manifest positively.
Like mention also above, don’t vary the affirmations too much. Stick to one affirmation until the desired results start to take “shape”. The danger in having too many different affirmations are that the mind becomes confused and cannot concentrate of the various affirmations and thus no real breakthrough are experienced. Devoting one affirmation to one project at a time is very wise.
