Affirmations - Mind Power - Learn How to control Mind using Words.
Affirmations are statements that you say either out loud, or quietly to yourself. By doing this, you affirm to yourself whatever it is that you desire. For example, if you have an important interview coming up, you could affirm to yourself that you will have “a great interview”.
Why Mind Power affirmations work:
When you verbalize something and repeat it to yourself, it will influence your thoughts. This is why affirmations are successful. If you say to yourself, “I will have a great interview”, you will automatically begin thinking about your upcoming interview as a great interview. What you focus on, you attract so begin using affirmations to focus on what you desire.
There are three rules to remember when using affirmations:
1. Always affirm the positive.
Avoid asking yourself, “What if it’s a terrible interview?” or thinking things like, “I’m so nervous”. These statements focus on the opposite of what you want. Be positive, and use words that reflect what you want to happen. If you want to be confident, use that word in your affirmation.
2. Make your affirmations short and simple.
Use a short phrase, or one sentence at the most. Your affirmation should be like a simple mantra that you can repeat over and over again, without thinking.
3. Don’t force yourself to believe it. Just say it.
You don’t need to force yourself to believe your affirmation, simply repeat it over and over and it will naturally have an effect on you. Repeating the statement many times will cause it to work for you.
Affirmations are simple, easy to use, and very powerful. Many professional athletes use them to perform well. Successful business people use them to close deals and run their businesses, and artists use them to be creative and come up with innovative ideas. You can use them too, in any area of your life.
They say nothing succeeds like success, and it’s true. Success vibration acts like a magnet that attracts success and opportunities to you. When you think and feel success, you vibrate with success energy and act accordingly.
People who are already successful have momentum on their side; the law of attraction is already working for them. They attract even greater success because of the nature of their predominant thoughts. The success vibration is a great asset to someone who is already successful. If you are not yet successful, there’s no need to worry. There are many Mind Power techniques you can use to create a success vibration. One of them is the technique of acknowledging.
How are you successful?
This technique begins with searching for areas of your life where you are already successful. Unfortunately most of us are quicker to see our own failures and shortcomings than we are to acknowledge our success. To create a success vibration you must change this self-deprecating habit and become success-focused.
Examine your personal qualities and present situation and find things to feel successful about. Are you a good friend to someone? Are you positive? Are you generous? Do you dress well? Are you a safe driver? You are not limited to a narrow definition of success such as someone who is rich, famous, and good-looking. There are literally hundreds of other aspects of your life that are equally important; the key is to find aspects that help us feel successful in our own lives. This is one way to create a success vibration.
Create a success vibration and you’ll attract success.
Start by creating an acknowledging list. Your list can be either general or specific. For example, let’s say you’re an entrepreneur building your business. You might make a specific acknowledging list that highlights the qualities you possess which will help you succeed in that role, such as: I’m a good communicator, I have great people skills, I’m a great leader, etc. By focusing on this list you are building a specific success vibration. The same principle works whether you’re closing a multi-million-dollar deal, getting an entry-level job, or finding the perfect partner.
Eliminating Negative Thinking
We already know that what you focus on you attract. Worry, fear, and negative thinking allow the mind to focus on things you don’t want, so Mind Power teaches you to eliminate negative thinking. Train your mind to think about what you want in life, and avoid thinking about what you don’t want. Negative thinking drains your energy and is counterproductive; that is why fear is so destructive and why despair and hopelessness must be avoided. They work in the opposite way that Mind Power does.
So how do we eliminate this negative thinking? The first step is to recognize the importance of eliminating negative thoughts, and the second step is to be aware when negatives are happening to us.
You can’t avoid negative thinking entirely. Sometimes negative thoughts just pop into our mind. When this happens, we must be aware, so that we immediately recognize when we are thinking negatively. When we catch ourselves thinking negative thoughts we can use any of these techniques:
Change the negative thought into a positive one.
If you’re worried and focusing on what could go wrong in a situation, change your thoughts to what could go right. Your mind can only think one thought at a time, so changing the negative into a positive eliminates the negative.
Remind yourself: a negative thought is just a negative thought.
A thought has no power other than what you give it. Negative thoughts gain momentum when you think them over and over again. So stop thinking them.
The key is to catch the negatives before they have time to become entrenched. With practice you will notice right away when you are thinking negatives, and you then can take the appropriate actions. The mind is a creature of habit, so encourage positive thoughts and eliminate negative ones.
