Personal affirmations will take you to where you want to go. No more sitting on the sidelines wishing you could be like someone else. Affirmations are your secret weapon on the road to success. Affirmations are the rocket pack that you plant in your mind that will blast you past everyone on the journey. Just like in Star Trek -- 'Engage number one, warp factor 9!'.
No need to be a drone trudging up life's long path, personal affirmations will strip you of your self-limiting beliefs and condition your mind to attain your goals, and become a goal oriented success machine. Affirmations work. Anyone who says differently doesn't know how to create or apply them. People who've used them properly and effectively will tell you -- they work.
People use affirmations all the time. Even people who say affirmations don't work use them. The assertion that 'affirmations don't work' is in itself and affirmation! A foolish and negative affirmation, but an affirmation none the less. Human kind has used affirmations in one form or another since humans have used language to communicate.
We use affirmations to lose weight, to cheer ourselves or our loved ones, to get fit, to lose weight, to build courage and confidence, and to get rid of anger. Personal affirmations are used successfully in all areas of self-help and personal development.
Personal affirmations are statements you recite that you want to be true about yourself or you think are true about yourself, to yourself. Everyone uses them either with intention or without. Getting cut off in traffic provokes a response of 'That jerk ticks me off!' - a negative affirmation - in one person, and the response of 'wow I'm glad I was awake and avoided that!' in another.
One person has affirmed that they are angry and will as a consequence remain angry, the other person won't remember the incident in 10 minutes and has affirmed that they are glad! What a difference. Can you see how your self-talk directly affects the your conscious and subconscious mind? We may not listen to others, but we definitely listen to ourselves. Because affirmations work so effectively to maintain a state of mind they can also be used to change your state of mind.
Personal affirmations need to be given some thought. Careless construction of affirmations may produce unexpected and unpleasant results. Some guidelines for creating affirmations will help. Knowing how to apply affirmations will help you accelerate the speed at which your mind absorbs them.
Affirmations can be used to change behaviour, or change how you feel, they can be used to manage moods, and to alter your self-talk. Regardless of how you want to use affirmations and what you are aiming at, you will have to be determined to stick with them. Far too many people miss the benefit of affirmations because they use them for a week or two, see no improvement or result and conclude that they don't work. It takes years to create thought habits, it's going to take a bit of time to create new ones.
Affirmations by themselves are effective and powerful. Affirmations with entrainment take personal change to a whole different level. Entrainment will put your mind into a state that is receptive to the messages of personal affirmations. They will become quickly ingrained into your way of thinking and the result will be improved performance and better feelings in a much shorter time frame than you believed possible.
Relying on drugs to change a state of mind will produce a dependency on chemicals that may prove to be quite harmful or have very adverse effects. Affirmations make the change quickly, effectively and best of all -- permanently. It is recommended that affirmations be used on an ongoing basis but there is no need to be chained to an iPod or mp3 player for the rest of your days. Once you are satisfied that your mind has accepted the new script you can move on to improving other areas of your life.
