Why & How Affirmations Work

Creating the Unprecedented, Self Development0 comments

 

I am so thankful to easily and effortlessly make $100,000 a month speaking and training others to reach their own sales and profit goals.

Beliefs get made in 3 primarily ways

  1. Adolescent Messages: What you were told when you were a kid
  2. Emotionally Charged Ideas: Thoughts that you accepted during highly emotionally charged events. (An example many of us wrestle with is: you get betrayed by a loved one and the betrayal becomes known all at once, like during a fight. Maybe the loved one yells, “you are not worth my love!” Because of the emotionally charged situation that thought makes it into the subconscious that you are not worth being loved. Now you reject signs of love from others because its obviously not real because you believe you are not worth love. So obviously this thing being offered isn’t love.
  3. Repetition. Any idea you tell yourself or allow yourself to hear will eventually be accepted as true. Your brain will let it pass to the subconscious and will then repeat it over and over for you without any further conscious effort.

We usually define beliefs as “How it is” or “how things are” or “this is just how I am”. Some examples of this are, “I am just not good with people” or “I am just not good at speaking to groups of people” or “the world is a dangerous place.” These are all belief driven, not reality driven statements. As in, our beliefs give meaning to a citation. You can’t be good or bad at anything unless you define the whole scenario through your beliefs. This is good news! This means you can change your beliefs if they aren’t working for you.

These affirmations work when you make the idea that you would like to be true and then intentionally repeating that idea.  Next you get yourself to feel the positive emotions that will come from attaining the idea by imagining it to be happening. This combination of repetition and feeling the desired emotion literally guides you to unconsciously alter the small habits that you are unaware of.

The real key here is just that you use your designed belief. As you use it every day you will be able to tweek it so it sounds better to you and evokes the positive emotions.

Say it to yourself when you get up and when you got to bed. That way your mind starts the day focusing on what you want and ends the day focusing on it too so you can dream and work on it while you sleep.
