Don’t let your thoughts ruin your Christmas.

Hi. Welcome back to my last post of 2019. What a year it’s been. Ups and downs and a few surprises thrown in. However with all that I survived mine and you survived yours if you are reading this. so well done. The good bits hold in your heart the bad bits let them go. if you made mistakes, learn from them. if they weren’t your problem then don’t worry about it and just move on.

For my last blog I want to conclude my posts on  self confidence.

I am a great believer in positive thinking and self belief and daily affirmations have helped me so much. Remember what we say to ourselves we believe, our mind believes so think positive and you will stay positive.

Here are some quotes and affirmations that I would like to share with you for Christmas.

Can you change?

Hi welcome to this weeks blog.

Getting back on track after last weeks rant about mobile phones. I’m going to blog about Anxiety and how to help control it, ease it and some tips to and affirmations to help start your day.

This week I am going to focus on affirmations. This is something I do every day.

Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to overcome self-sabotaging or negative thoughts. To use affirmations, first analyse the thoughts or behaviors that you’d like to change in your own life and career.

Affirmations (meaning statements said with confidence about a perceived truth) have helped thousands of people make significant changes in their lives. An affirmation can work, because it has the ability to program your mind into believing the stated concept. This is because the mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real or fantasy.

What Affirmations Do?

  • They motivate.
  • They keep the mind focused on the goal.
  • They influence the subconscious mind and activate its powers.
  • They change the way you think and behave, and this can bring you into contact with new people, who can help you with your goals.

Positive statements make you feel positive, energetic and active, and therefore, put you in a better position to transform your inner and external worlds.

When and How to Repeat Affirmations

1) Devote some special times during the day for repeating them.

2) Repeat them wherever you are, and whenever you want and have the time.

Before starting, ask yourself whether you really want to get what you want to affirm for. If you have doubts and are not really sure that you want it, your doubts will stand in your way. This is one of the reasons why people do not get results, and then lose their belief in this power.

Affirm with love, faith, feeling and interest, and feel and believe that your desire has already been fulfilled. This kind of thinking will accelerate its fulfilment.

It is natural for the mind to bring up doubts and negative thoughts, especially if your current environment and situation are very different from what you want to achieve. Persevere, and do not let your negative thoughts and doubts conquer you.

3 Steps to Make Affirmations More Effective and Powerful

Step 1: Make a list of what you’ve always thought of as your negative qualities.  Include any criticisms others have made of you that you’ve been holding onto — whether it’s something your siblings, parents, or peers used to say about you when you were a child, or what your boss told you in your last annual review. Don’t judge if they’re accurate, and remember we all have flaws. This is one of the beauties of being human.

Step 2: Speak the affirmation out loud for about five minutes three times a day — morning, midday, and evening. An ideal time to do this is when you’re putting on your makeup or looking into the mirror in the morning and last thing at night., so that you can look at yourself in the mirror as you repeat the positive statement. Another option that helps to reinforce the new belief and would be easy to do at work is to write out the affirmation several times in a notebook. Notice over time as you write it if your style of writing changes.

Step 3: Get a friend or coach to repeat your affirmation to you. As they are saying, for example, “You are remarkable and cherished,” identify this statement as “good mothering” or “good fathering” messages. If you don’t have someone whom you feel comfortable asking, then use your reflection in the mirror as the person who is reinforcing the healthy message.

Affirmations can be a powerful tool to help you change your mood, state of mind, and manifest the change you desire in your life. But they work best if you can first identify the unwholesome belief that is opposing them.

Try it and see how your life can improve!  Here are some affirmations to get you started.

There is nobody better than me to get the job done.

  • I believe in me.
  • I’m getting stronger every day.
  • I can do this.
  • I’m doing my best and my best is good enough.
  • I will continue to learn and grow.

Do you get the idea. Try it, it really works. Remember our subconscious mind is always listening and it believes what it hears.

Next week Why is my anxiety worse in the morning.

Until then, have a great week.

Best wishes

Jon
