For you to achieve your goals, you should program your mind so that your success becomes automatic. You need your subconscious to continually steer your life in the right direction while overcoming the challenges that are holding you back.
Using affirmations is one of the most effective ways to program your mind. Every thought that you have, and every word that you speak is an affirmation. Your internal dialogue is a continual flow of declarations and has a dramatic impact on your life. The things that you repeatedly say to yourself and think, which creates your beliefs and your life experiences, especially when they contain strong emotions.
Many of the beliefs you hold are thought patterns that you developed in childhood. Some of these may work for you, while others are working against you. If you don’t change these negative beliefs and thoughts, they can be extremely destructive, and sabotage the efforts you make in achieving your goals. By the end of this chapter, you will have learned how to create powerful affirmations that will reprogram your mind for success.
Programming Your Subconscious Mind
To help you achieve your goals, you need to reprogram your subconscious mind. Using affirmations can help you achieve this. The more you repeat something with emotion, the more it will affect your subconscious mind, and the more successful you are in doing this, the more opportunities your subconscious mind will find that may have otherwise escaped your notice. These new opportunities can bring you closer to achieving your goals.
Your subconscious mind is unlimited in what it can do for you. It is what connects you to the universe and is more powerful than a supercomputer. It can work miracles in every area of your life, helping you to achieve everything you desire.
It is important, however, that you know how to use this power correctly for it to bring you the results you want. Unless you are speaking the same language as your subconscious, all your efforts will be ineffective. Your subconscious has its own unique language, and you should understand a small part of this language if you want to be successful in achieving your goals.
Repetition and strong emotions are a part of the language that your subconscious understands, as well as being influenced by visualization. Repeatedly visualizing what you want and attaching it to a strong desire, will allow your subconscious mind to help you create everything you desire.
Creating Powerful Affirmations
The first step in creating powerful affirmation is rewriting each of your short-term, medium-term, and long-term goals into affirmations. The affirmations you create will influence your mind and bring you exactly what you want. These are positive empowering affirmations that you will say aloud to yourself every day. To get the most out of your affirmations, you want to read them aloud while triggering your goal anchor, that you created in chapter four. Your goal anchor will add the strong, positive emotions you need to achieve your goals. Creating powerful affirmations based on your goals will help you reprogram your thoughts, replacing the harmful underlying beliefs with more positive ones about yourself and your capabilities.
Affirmations are one the most powerful and effective methods for influencing your subconscious mind, and they are easy to create. To be useful, you need to create your affirmations, making sure to:
- Use the word “I” to make it personal
- Use “I am” to be in the present tense
- Be positive
- Be specific
- Include at least one dynamic feeling word such as “grateful.”
- Include an action word, like “growing” or “enjoying.”
- Be clear, concise, and easy to remember
Converting Your Condensed Goals into Affirmations
It’s now time for you to convert all your goals into powerful affirmations that will help to reprogram your mind and help you achieve your goals. Here is an example of a powerful affirmation from the condensed goal created in chapter four.
- Travel more (PMF)
- Have more free time
- Make more money
- Work in a job you love
I will find a new job that I love, that will pay me more than [x amount] each month, and that will give me more free time so that I can travel as much as I want.
This condensed goal can easily be converted into a powerful affirmation that will reprogram your mind to easily achieve it in less time.
I am making [x amount] each month, working in a job that I love, having lots of time to travel to all the places that I want. It is important to be as specific as possible when creating your affirmation because your subconscious mind needs specifics to work with to get you the best results.
Overcoming Negative Thoughts with Affirmations
Affirmations are also extremely valuable in counteracting the negative, self-limiting beliefs and thoughts that you are currently holding on to about yourself, your life, and your capabilities.
For example, if you feel like a failure, you can repeat the following affirmation to help you overcome this negative thought, “I possess all the qualities that I need to be very successful.” Even though you might not believe this right now, saying this affirmation regularly, while triggering your goal anchor, will allow you to begin to begin to feel its powerful effects on your daily outlook on life.
When repeating your affirmations out loud with emotion every day, it’s essential to remember to visualize and emotionalize them, making them more effective. You need to think of them as though you’ve already achieved the goal. The effects will be more powerful when you work up strong feelings of achievement and gratitude, bringing up these feelings with your goal anchor.
Using Creative Visualization
As you read your affirmations aloud while triggering your goal anchor, it is also vital for you to visualize your experiences as you achieve your goals. You want to feel the sense of joy, empowerment, fulfillment and gratitude that you will experience when you have finally reached your goals.
You want to work yourself into a state where you can almost reach out and touch these experiences as if they were currently unfolding. The more clearly you can use your emotions and senses to do this, the better the outcome. You can use your goal anchor to charge your visualizations with emotional energy, making them more powerful.
When you add visualization to your daily affirmations, you are speaking the language your subconscious understands, and you are commanding it to create the opportunities you need to achieve your goals. Combining your daily affirmations with creative visualization is an extremely effective method for achieving your goals.
Controlling Your Mind
The only real control that you have over your life is your capability to control your mind and how you react to the changing circumstance in your life. If you want to change your life in a significant way, you must be able to change the way you think.
It is impossible to achieve big goals if you are a negative thinker. Changing your self-image and attitude is a lot easier than you might think. Learning how to show gratitude for the things in your life can help you begin to change your way of thinking and your life.
This is because gratitude is like a giant magnet. It draws opportunities into your life to help you achieve your goals, allowing you to create a truly happy life.
The human brain is extremely powerful and is connected to infinite wisdom that you can summon when needed. Right now, you have all the resources you need to change your situation, overcome any challenges, and become capable of achieving whatever your heart desires. Never let your present circumstances define who you are and what you want to become.
