Your mind is a victim of conditioning. Unfortunately, the world we live in focuses on the negative aspects more frequently than the positive. If you watch the news, eight out of ten stories are generally negative. When you surround yourself with negativity, your mind automatically becomes conditioned to expect negative outcomes.
Most people spend far too much time repeating negative words and statements in their mind, whether consciously or subconsciously. If you keep telling yourself that you can’t do something, or you are too lazy, or you are stupid, your mind believes you and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Words and statements work both ways. They can build you up, or tear you down. But their capacity to cause harm or good is up to us.
The repetition of positive affirmations help focus your mind on your goals, automatically building corresponding mental images in the conscious and subconscious mind. By using this process consciously and intently, you harness the power of your subconscious mind to transform your habits, behaviours , mental attitude and reactions.
To be truly effective, you must believe whole-heartedly in your affirmations. Whether you write your own affirmations, or use prewritten ones, they need to be in the present tense, for example, “I am...,” rather than “I will be....” Also, choose words which will evoke positive mental images, describing what you really want. If you want to build a life of wealth and abundance, use affirmations like “I am a rich individual” instead of “I'm not poor.”
Positive affirmations are a great tool to rewire you subconscious mind from a state of negative thinking to positive. The basic concept is to create positive statements based on situations or outcomes which you would like to see manifested, and repeat them often enough so that they become second nature.
Set aside a special time during the day for repeating them to yourself. Write them down or repeat them in your mind wherever you are and whenever you have the time. It is natural for negativity to cloud your mind, especially if your current environment is unfavourable, but persevere, and you will conquer your negative thoughts and doubts.
