I love helping busy people improve their overall wellbeing and day to day life.
It’s my passion to inspire others to Live Louder. Living louder for me is when I move my body daily, have a better understanding of my emotions and in-turn having more meaningful relationships with others. I have been using positive affirmations over the last year and the process has totally changed how I view life. Providing me with greater confidence to tackle any problem that comes my way. I am sharing with you some of my tips and thoughts that I took on board over the last 12 months.
Before you jump into using positive affirmations, look at your big picture to uncover the details about what you have, what you want, and what needs to change in order to achieve your goals. There are a few questions below to help you get started. After you picture what you want to change, in your mind, answer the questions aloud, or write them down, for future reference. You will probably need to refer back to them. Envision every area of your life filled with more success. What do you see? What area or part of your life came to mind first? How does it feel? What is different? Is it truly possible to be more successful? Now, do the same thing for happiness. Picture every area of your life filled with more happiness. What does it look like? What area came to your mind first?
The ability to envision what you want to achieve, and change is very important. The more often you do it, the easier it becomes. As this happens, you’ll begin adding more details each time you envision your “new life.” The more detailed your vision is, the more likely you are to achieve the results you want. Did you fudge and skip over the imagery part above? If so, do it now. I mentioned that your possibilities are waiting. But what are they waiting for? They are waiting for you to make meaningful changes to reach your goals. You’ve heard “If you keep doing the same old things, you’ll keep getting the same old results.” Well, that’s your call to action.
To make changes, you need to do four things:
1. picture how your life will change when you achieve your goals.
2. Envision this frequently to get the clearest picture and the most details.
3. Chalk-up a success for yourself each time you imagine this “coming soon” place and time.
4. Believe that change is possible.
Before you can gain more happiness or anything else, you must believe that it is possible for you to make meaningful changes to yourself and your situation. Even if you have a few doubts, that’s okay. You will learn, make adjustments, and gain confidence as you go. The more firmly you believe something is do-able, the more likely you are to keep trying until you reach your goal. Note I didn’t say that achieving your goal is probable…yet.
To increase the probability of reaching your ultimate goal, you need a well-thought-out action plan. The plan should include a variety of carefully selected tools, resources, strategies, and goals. When you enhance your goals or “best possibilities” by creating and following a SMART plan, you increase your chances of making changes stick and living the life you envisioned. Your third task is to create SMART goals and a plan, if you don’t have one. Otherwise, look at your existing goals and strategies, as they relate to your new vision. Do they support the “new” vision?
Essentially, affirmations are statements said with confidence about a perceived truth. In this report, the terms affirmations and statements are often interchangeable. However, when referring to the positive statements used to help you make changes, the term “affirmation(s)” is used/preferred. Affirmations can be either negative or positive. Let’s begin with negative statements and affirmations first, because they may block or limit your successes, without you even realizing it. The more you understand about negative statements, the easier it will be to identify, counteract, and overcome them with positive belief statements or affirmations, and other tools.
