Much of your happiness and your success in life are controlled by the thoughts you hold in your subconscious mind. You are what you think you are. If you start the day off with a positive attitude chances are your day will end positively. If you allow negativity to roost in your mind and convey itself in your attitude, your day will probably end on the downslide as well.
Why not give your day a power punch by beginning with positive affirmations. Remind yourself of all that you have to be thankful for and all that you can do. Recite your affirmations out loud or write them down and read them back to yourself. Take time for some peaceful meditation, allowing your appreciation for life to fill your spirit with love and gratitude.
Positive affirmations are powerful statements that are used to build a positive internal dialog. By consistently repeating positive affirmations to yourself, you create positive subconscious thoughts.
But how do you remember to take time out for affirmations? With a busy day just getting started, it’s tempting to skip just about anything to get going. But just like you don’t want to skip brushing your teeth because your mouth will feel yucky, skipping your affirmations will make you day feel yucky too.
If you want to change a habit or make a habit you have to be consistent for at least 30 days. That’s how long it takes your brain to accept the new idea and to form the habit. After the first 30 days, you will become so accustomed to saying your affirmations that you will find that you actually look forward to them.
