Your thinking plays an important part in your overall well-being and happiness. What you say to yourself and about yourself becomes your reality.
Our internal and external dialogue creates our life experiences for us. The average human being has tens of thousands of thoughts a day – some of them negative or self limiting, that can lead to feelings of doubt and fear.
Thoughts that are continued over a long period of time turn into beliefs that get rooted in the subconscious mind. We can carry beliefs around that serve us well and others that drag down our personal lives, careers, relationships, health, etc. Changing any belief requires changing the thought behind it. Positive affirmations can be of great help to turn a thought around and see life from a whole new perspective.
Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired outcome. They are written in the present tense like a goal that is completed.
Repeating affirmations daily helps program the subconscious mind for success. The more time we spend in a positive mindset, the greater our self-confidence, clarity and focus. We start feeling better about ourselves and the world around us.
Positive affirmations can help relieve anxiety and stress, increase self-worth and build new habits. In order to reach the subconscious mind and turn our self-limiting patterns around, repetition is the key. Consistent use of empowering words will shift how we feel, think and act.
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer
