Positive affirmations are powerful tools that help you overcome limiting beliefs that keep you from having the life you deserve. This video will walk you through the process of creating positive affirmations. Be sure to read the article, "“Positive Affirmations: The Power of Words and Thoughts” in this section under "Resources" for a deeper explanation of how they work.
Limiting beliefs are things we believe about ourselves that hold us back from reaching our goals and dreams. They get in the way of allowing us to love ourselves. Limiting beliefs can paralyze a person and stop them from having the life they deserve. Very often we are not even aware of all the limiting beliefs we hold in our subconscious mind. This lecture will walk you through an exercise to determine what limiting beliefs you have and shows you a process you can use to overwrite them.
What does and doesn't make a good positive affirmation?
Everyone has "day dreams". We all visualize things in our mind's eye about our life, dreams, and hopes. When we play situations in our mind we visualize the outcome. The emotions we feel as we do this make an impression on our subconscious mind, often influencing our behavior and eventual outcome. Sadly, many times when we visualize we do so in a negative way, which may lead to negative outcomes. For instance, a man who finally got a date with his dream girl imagines that the evening goes terribly wrong. This fills him with fear and his subconscious mind causes him to make the negative visualization a reality.
This lecture discusses the importance of visualization and the effect it has on your life.
