Repeat Your Affirmations Daily

Repeat Your Affirmations DailyEvery time you read or listen to an affirmation, it becomes a stronger force in your life. Repeat your affirmations at least twice a day—morning and night. I find myself repeating my affirmations throughout the day, repeating them over and over. Soon you will have most of them memorized.

Are you affirmation positive or negative? We may not always be aware of it, but we all create and repeat affirmations constantly. The problem is, we typically don’t pay attention to exactly what those affirmations are saying. Often we go through the day giving ourselves all sorts of contradictory, or even negative messages. We may project confidence to the world around us, while our inner dialogue says… I hope this works. I am so nervous about this. I hope I don’t blow it. Affirmations are self fulfilling prophecies. If we say, This is never going to work… then chances are excellent it never will.

Get into the feelings, emotions and associations you have with affirmations. Feel so jazzed up about what you are saying that you feel like it is already there. When you are able to really get into that feeling place, this is when the new neural connections are created. It is essential to remember emotions, clarity and feelings are the key ingredients to creating effective affirmations that will produce results in your world.

 

Laminate your affirmations. Have your affirmations laminated. Make a couple of copies for home, work, your car and next to your bed.

 

Use technology to bombard your nonconscious brain with the declarations of the world you want to create. Technology has given us all sorts of wonderful tools we can use.

Audio:Play your affirmations while you are jogging or working out, cleaning house—anytime you would ordinarily listen to music.

Subliminal Audio and Video:You can play subliminal audio and video recordings to yourself throughout the day.

Subliminal Software:There is software available that will play your affirmations to you by flashing them almost invisibly on your computer screen.

When we have absolute clarity about what it is we wish to create, and repeat our affirmations daily, the Law of Attraction does its part with providing you with all you need to create what you want.

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.

The Olympics and Your Success in Life

I love the Olympics for many reasons. The sheer fun, joy and spirit we get to participate in while watching the athletes, their stories, their families, and the highs and lows makes for a great way to invest time in observing others pursue their goals and dreams. Partly for their country, mostly for themselves.

I can’t help but ask myself what these athletes did to prepare for the Olympics. What physical workouts, diets, practice and dreaming did they do? What doubts, fears anxieties, lack of confidence, certainties and feelings did they experience on their journey to Vancouver and, mostly, what did they do to overcome these feelings that each one of us has at one time or another in pursuit of our goals and dreams?

The Olympics I believe, gives us a chance to live vicariously through the participants be it athlete or coach, spectator or employee. In asking myself these questions and watching the games, I realized that I want to be on the field playing my heart out regardless of whether I win or lose. What about you? Do you want to be playing or watching? Cheering or checking? Feeling the exhilaration of the game on the track or from the stands?

Either way, life is a game that you can either play or watch, hope or do, enjoy or not. It’s your choice. Either way, the game is very short when you are playing full out or very long when all you do is find what’s wrong with it.

As I observed the games, I felt a sense of pride and joy and a sense of sadness. In every sporting event someone won the gold, silver or bronze. Many of the athletes didn’t win a medal. Were they losers? I prefer to think of all of them as winners, just in varying degrees based on their own set of circumstances.

If they showed up, did their best and felt and knew that they did…isn’t that a win? I say yes!

Life is not about winning medals. Life is about showing up ready to play full out and doing the best YOU can do. Competition, helps each of us see what is possible by pushing or pulling us to meet our potential and our goals.

Every one of the athletes came to the Olympic games with a goal. A goal that they committed to, trained for physically and mentally and then went after with all their will.

What are your goals? Have you committed to them and are you playing full out? Like the Olympic games, your flame will burn out. My hope and wish for you is that you have no more game left in you because you left it all on the field, doing and knowing you did your very best!
