After four decades of presenting countless seminars, and training programs, to assist in personal development, and provide methods of more efficiently, introducing self – help, I have come to believe, that one of the most valuable strategies, is correctly, consistently, using positive affirmations. While many individuals say, they need to be, or even think, they’re, optimistic individuals, few people, are capable, or willing, to keep this positive, can – do, attitude, despite any obstacles, thrown in our path. Using affirmations effectively, is a combination of an art, and a science, because, one must proceed, in an introspective, objective manner, understand his personal goals and aspirations, strengths and weaknesses, and prioritize, what he seeks to become better at. With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly review, consider, and discuss, 3 keys, to efficiently utilize them, to become a better, you.
List your goals, objectives, strengths/ weaknesses, priorities: Before you can use any confirmation, in a significant way, it has to be something which really matters to you, and will motivate you, to do it, in a positive way! Know, and understand, your private, professional, and work – related objectives, and record those, as opposed to trying to seek, what others do! Consider your personal, existing, strengths and weaknesses, and use areas, where you are most powerful, to their very best avail, while addressing any weakness, etc.. As soon as you have fully developed, and better understand, and recognize, these, you’re prepared to proceed, to create your, personal Affirmation List.
Compose 10 positive announcement, in today’s and affirmative: An affirmations list, has to be more proactive, in the present tense, and positive, Never say, I will not do something, however, instead phrase this, as though you are already doing what is needed and necessary. By way of instance, somebody who feels, they have to eliminate weight, should not say, I will eat less, but, rather, something, like, I eat healthy, exercise, and listen to doing, healthy things. Someone who’s afraid to deal with a group, shouldn’t state this in the negative, but, rather, in a statement, including, I enjoy speaking in public, and people listening, love listening and paying attention, to what I need to say. Restrict this to 10 positive statements, write them down, and replicate them, at least 3 times, every day (normally, upon awakening, in the middle of the day, and in the day). Write it down, and read these out – loud, in whatever area, works best, for you!
Prioritize: Your 10 statements, should focus on, areas that you consider, as priorities, and continue doing these specific statements, till you’ve transformed your inner – believing! Then, you can tweak, and adjust them correctly, proceed, forward, in a relevant, meaningful, manner.
Regardless of what one does, he can always become better, and more effective. Becoming so, starts with having more self – confidence, and effectively using affirmations, is an integral component, in doing so!
