''If you can?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
Positive thinking is essential for living a successful life. What you spend time thinking about registers on your mind.You must learn to be positive about life, and train yourself to utter more positive words each day. As these words and thoughts get engraved on your mind, they will propel you into the right actions that will enable you lead a successful life.
- Instead of saying Nothing good happens to me
Good things are happening to me
- Instead of saying I am clumsy
try saying I am graceful and well coordinated
- Do not say I will not make it / I cannot
Instead say I shall make it / I can
Avoid saying I am bad at this or bad at that. If you rather keep saying I am good at this and good at that, and put your mind to becoming good at it, you shall be good at it. Positive affirmations are very good at transforming us over a period of time. They are sign posts that attract good things our way, and help us to mentally develop good attitudes and actions that render good results.
According to Wikipedia, Autosuggestion is a process by which an individual trains the subconscious mind to believe something, or systematically schematizes the person's own mental associations, usually for a given purpose. Autosuggestion is most commonly accomplished by presenting (either through caressing or bombarding) one's mind with repetitive thoughts (negative or positive), until those thoughts become internalized. Practitioners typically hope to transmute thoughts into beliefs, and even into actualities. Visualizing the manifestations of a belief, verbally affirming it, and thinking it using one's "internal voice", are typical means of influencing one's mind via repetitive autosuggestion.
From the above, we learn that one's thoughts when repetitive become engrafted into firm beliefs and later develop into actual happenings. A belief when it is visualised and verbally uttered or thought about tend to become real actions. In simple terms: You mentally picture it, speak it or think about it constantly, and you will have it. This is because what you continually dwell on is what your actions will be focused on.
Change your negative confessions into positive ones, and if you practice this over time, you shall begin to see positive changes. If I should tell you:
- " Don't go swimming" Did you picture someone or yourself swimming?
A second example:
- "Do not touch the red chair" Did you see a red chair mentally?
That is how autosuggestions function. In view of this, paint more positive pictures than negative ones, and let your mind and soul lead you into positive actions.
Yes you can!!!!
