How To Make Affirmations Work For You

How to Make Affirmations Work for You

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. —Aristotle

Just imagine: If you could have it all, what would do and be in your life? What feats would you dare to accomplish and where would you go? Just imagine your life, lived without limits.In order to reach an intended destination, you have to know your intended destination. Affirmations—clear, definitive statements declaring something is so—solidify your ideas of where you want to go or how you want to change. Without exception, positive affirmation is the key to all advancement and achievement. The most powerful and successful affirmations are the ones we design around our goals in the areas of our life that are most important to us: money, health, spiritual connection, a job you love, and great relationships with your family and friends. If you don’t take the time to decide what you want for yourself, circumstance or someone else will choose for you. This is not how life is supposed to be.

Growing up, I developed the belief that I was not very good at achieving worthwhile things in life. I ran around with a crowd of kids who were up to no good, and seemed destined for a life of failure. When I first began creating goals and visions for myself in business, it was critical that I create new beliefs around my abilities as a businessperson—otherwise my existing beliefs would end up sabotaging every new goal I set for myself.

I wrote a statement for myself that was in such stark contrast to what I had grown up believing, it still resonates with huge impact to this day:

I am a brilliant and savvy businessman.

Mind you, when I wrote this, I didn’t believe it. Not one bit. And there was a very good reason: It wasn’t true. Not yet. But I decided I would like it to be true. That is who I wanted to become. And the only way that would happen would be if I designed that new belief and entrained it into my brain.

Over the years, I have added to the list and redesigned the statements I tell myself…Here are a few:

  • I give myself permission to be powerful.
  • I have absolute certainty in my ability to generate any amount of income I choose.
  • Money is flowing to me from both expected and unexpected sources.

Affirmations are self-fulfilling prophecies. Think of affirmations as the core principles of the life you are visualizing. Affirmations are your To Be List—powerful reminders throughout the day that keep you on track toward your goals and dreams. You deserve to decide for yourself exactly what and who you’ll become and what you’ll acquire along the way.

Through a process we call neural reconditioning, you can take those goals and dreams and turn them into neural patterns in your subconscious brain. Let’s take the analogy of running a marathon. Whether or not you’ve ever actually run a marathon before, you probably have a pretty good idea of what it takes to get in shape for something like this. It’s not just something you can decide one day and do the next. It takes time and consistency. It takes an applied methodical effort. You need to workout daily, breaking in your system bit by bit, toning and strengthening your muscles, training your lungs and heart, until gradually your entire system had become acclimated to the new demands you are asking of it. You see, your entire nervous system is set up to help you establish habits. After it understands that you want to perform an activity over and over again, it makes those corresponding neural pathways very efficient so that it becomes easier for you.

This is exactly what you are going to do with your brain. Positive affirmations form new facts and data for the subconscious brain to hardwire. It takes daily, consistent effort.

Here’s how you can begin to recondition your brain:

Create a new, powerful, physical and mental vision. Make your goals emotionally rich and crystal clear.

Create powerful declarations and affirmations in each category—health, wealth, relationships, business and spirituality—that support your new vision.

Use a portfolio of imprinting material, which may include written, auditory, visual and subliminal pieces. Through repetition—affirmations on audio, visualization and meditation—you will begin to replace your old beliefs and habits with new ones.

Maintain a daily routine of reconditioning techniques: For five to seven minutes, three times a day, use photos, vision boards, mental movies, self-guided imagery, real-life movies, and recorded and laminated affirmations.

Practice meditation daily. Meditation can increase your focus and concentration, increase your power of concentration and attune the brain to receive the answers, tools and resources needed to fulfill that vision.

We need a vision for our lives, or else nothing we do means anything. No matter what your current circumstances, if you can imagine something better for yourself, you can create it.

New Year’s resolutions are a total waste of time (for most people)

Why are New Year’s Resolutions a waste of time? Because they are not backed by the right mental preparation and conditioning.

I know that’s a bold statement, but let me ask you, how many years have you been making resolutions, only to find that within two or three weeks (any day now) you’ve given up?

The fact is, relying upon will power, resolve and persistence is absolutely the worst way to achieve your new goals. These things are controlled by your conscious mind, which is responsible for only about 2-4 percent of your day-to-day actions and perceptions.

It’s not your fault!

When I say that it’s not your fault, here’s what I mean: Due to your habits, you’ve become conditioned to stay in the same physical condition, salary or in the same mediocre relationship. An internal financial or physical “set point” is conditioned deep in your subconscious brain so that you don’t have to think about the day-to-day activities you need to do to maintain it.

Does this make sense to you?

Think about lottery winners: Why is it that within two or three years, almost all of them lose all their money? It’s because they are conditioned to be without money. Their do not change their subconscious set point of how much money they should have, therefore they revert to that point – it’s like an anchor on a boat!

Believe it or not, once any image, habit or belief is ingrained in your subconscious brain, you automatically seek out situations and behave in ways that resonate with that “internal image.” Now, if you currently don’t like the results you are witnessing with your physique, job, income or relationships, then guess what … you must break the old patterns and old conditioning that’s causing them!

How is this possible? Well, NASA has proven that breaking subconscious patterns takes 30-60 days of brain retraining.

You see, if you do not “re-train” your subconscious brain at the same time you make the decision to improve your health or financial situation, for example, you will within very short order return to your old weight and wealth patterns – and that’s why, despite the best intentions, the vast majority of New Year’s resolutions are not kept.

Simply put, there is a “cybernetic trigger” in your brain. It detects any change from your current situation, no matter what is, and it overrides your will power and forces you to behave in accordance with your old habits. Hence, the same results repeat themselves, because of the same thought patterns and behavioral patterns. It works exactly like the thermostat in your home that automatically picks up any change in room temperature and then makes corrections to return things to “normal.”

In essence, this automatic “trigger” causes you to rationalize why you’re not sticking with your diet or new financial plan, and basically forces you to revert to your old habits and patterns.

Think about this: When you break the word “rationalize” in two, you get “rational-lies.” The internal self-talk you catch yourself doing is automatic, and a result of the system doing its job to keep you at your “comfort zone,” even though it’s not what you want!

What does all this mean to you? Your income, your body and your relationships are only expressions of the internal self-image you have at a deep-rooted level… If you want to see permanent changes on the outside, you must retrain the mental image on the inside first.

So it adds up to this: If you truly want to make permanent changes in your life, it takes about 15 minutes a day of mental retraining for 30-60 days. The more you do this, the faster you’ll see results. The good news is that you can’t get a brain hernia if you overdo it.

The bottom line is this: When you are interested in your success, you’ll do what’s convenient. On the other hand, when you are committed to your success, you’ll do whatever it takes.

Why are you stuck at your current income or revenues?

Hi friends,

If you are really serious about achieving greater financial success you must read and understand this now.

In my many years of studying human perception and peak behavior it never ceases to amaze me how many people think that we see with our eyes. We don’t!

We see when light bounces off an external object and enters our eye through the cornea, causing complex chemical reactions and electrical impulses to occur. This allows our brain to decipher the information from our external world and to determine whether or not it is important to us. It is actually our brain that sees and not our eyes. Our eyes are just like the lens on a camera – they allow in light that is reflected off objects so that our brain can see and process information.

Seems pretty simple right? Now, you may be asking why this is important to earning money and so I’ll explain to you what is really going on and why it’s especially important to you if want to achieve higher levels of financial success.

The way your brain works is really amazing when it comes to capturing and analyzing information. However, herein lies the problem.

Every second about 400 billion pieces of “information” from the outside world is being picked up through your eyes and your non-conscious mind. Your conscious mind however is made aware of up to only 2,000 of those pieces of information. That means that over 9.9999 million pieces of information are being dropped from your conscious awareness at any given time.

Your brain searches the outside world for patterns and images that it currently recognizes or deems highly important. It drops all other sensory information from your perception if it is not on your “important list” or part of your current mental programming or conditioning.

With that said, if you are conditioned to earn a certain income or if your company is used to generating certain revenues, your brain is will consistently seek out opportunities that match that level of income. Nothing less, nothing more.

Earning more income is totally an inside mental game and not an outside game. Working harder used to be the answer because that is what our parents, teachers and mentors taught us we should do. They didn’t know better. Today we do.

With all the advancements in brain research and recent understandings in quantum physics, you owe it to yourself to really understand how your priceless brain works and how to take control of all its powerful systems. In the last six years alone the advancements in human potential have been huge, especially in understanding why people get stuck financially.

If you are still working way too hard daily, then you are really missing the boat on taking your income or revenues to your true potential.

If you are interested in maximizing your income, revenues and living a healthier, happier life, I urge you to consider my goal achieving program that will show you the most advanced process to achieve any goal you deserve and desire.

Has the economy got you worried?

Hey Friends,

Times are tough out there and many people are hurting right now.

If you want to understand what got us in this mess read on, I’ll explain.

When you and I want to buy a home, we usually go to a bank and get a loan.

Let’s say your loan is at 6% annual interest. The bank sells the loan to bigger Wall Street type institutions and keeps a small fee for originating the loan.

Now these institutions bundle these mortgage loans in batches of $100 million, and sell them to even bigger institutions like hedge funds, retirement funds, etc., and they keep a small fee for that. At the end, the bigger institution may receive a 4% return on their money, while the middle men get a smaller fee, as they no longer are holding the mortgage. They basically get paid a commission for their involvement. And the more loans they process, the more money they make, with almost no risk.

Herein lies the problem: When the homeowner can’t afford to make the payments (because they never should have gotten loans as big as they did in the first place) all the institutions and the banks don’t get paid. This causes a cash crunch, which now extends to every person and business on the planet that isn’t prepared for a downturn in the economy.

The government steps in and buys all the “bad” in-default mortgages from the institutions in hopes that it will free up their cash. This is done so they’ll start lending to homeowners and businesses again, so it can be business as usual. Unfortunately, this is a temporary fix.

We must get back to lending people money based on their true ability to pay it back, and not based on the hopes and dreams that the real estate market or stock market will continue to go up without a downturn. It’s never happened before and it’s not going to start now.

With this said, what can you do now to make sure you stay strong and thrive in this market?  You must understand that if you are focusing on the negative aspect of what is happening in the market and the economy, you cannot be focusing on how to thrive in these times.

More millionaires will be made in the next two years than in the last ten, and you too can learn how to thrive despite the economy.

It’s those who learn how to think and act differently who will prosper. To learn more about how to take charge of your thinking, check out my FREE guide below.
