Your Thoughts Hold The Key To Transforming Your Life

January 13

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.

Affirmations can really change the way you feel about yourself and others. Fitness4Her is a diet and fitness program that’s based on a diet you can stick to and an exercise program that’s easy and fun. Affirmations and journaling are encouraged to keep you motivated and accountable so that you will succeed in your journey to a healthier body in order to live a happier lifestyle.

This time you will succeed. Conceive it, believe it, achieve it. Now go out there and make it happen!

  1. I’m a big believer in positive affirmations. I think it can improve one’s well being in all areas but I tend to focus on one’s that have to do with my art and being creative. When I was younger, I used to use the affirmation, “I am strong” when I was working out at the gym a lot. I swear it worked and I got strong faster then if I hadn’t used that affirmation.

  3. Karen – Nice post. I couldn’t agree more.

    We get what we focus on, particularly when we focus on them with feeling.

    Also, I would add look for the teeny, tiny improvements you can see as these will help you draw the next improvements to yourself.

    And if you’re a visual person (as many are), why not think of a visual to match your positive affirmation. I find that it helps to make a visual affirmation much more memorable if it’s funny.

  5. You are so right about the power of affirmations! Years ago I went to a workshop where the presenter taught people to use “I feel good, I feel fine, I feel this way all the time!” My employees rolled their eyes when I shouted this down the hall but they always smiled!

  7. I have had to reteach myself positive affirmations and I am still struggling with that.. There have been some huge changes in the past year that were totally unexpected and have thrown me for quite a whirlwind…But…I remember that I am a mom, to a beautiful and AMAZING daughter that teaches me more about life on a daily basis then I can sometimes fathom… I am a first time home owner after having rented for way too many years… and I AM REPAINTING AND REMODELING THE INSIDE! I have food to eat, a warm bed to sleep in and there are so many other riches that the list would be endless… One of the most important parts of my life is my belief in GOD…I don’t know that without HIM and some of my friends that I would be here right now….
