What are Positive Affirmations and do they really work? I report back my findings after testing them straight for 2 Years! I also include the list of 50 Positive Affirmations for Success that I have been utilizing in rotation for my morning routine and my thoughts and reflections on how this has played out for me after testing it for 2 years (and counting)
The 808s and 101s of this magic – Positive Affirmations for Success
So, before I explain what Affiratmions do for you, I have to briefly explain this RAS concept that is in everyone’s brain. Check out this article I made a couple years back on how your brain FILTERS OUT.
So what does the RAS have to do with Affirmations (and Gratitude if you follow me on Instagram), Well if I am to sum up what I have learned from being a student of success is the power of RAS, what you focus on and how it can help shape your actions. To put simply, when you start focusing on what you can control, what is positive, and your sphere of influence, the more you will take action executing your goals.
This was first shared to me when I took a Forex Trading class with a friend I met in Atlanta. In one of his trading sessions, he simply stated out of the blue that before he does all his trades for the day, he reads a list of affirmations about himself and also reframes them in each pronoun so that he can cover all forms of affirmations that people may say about him. Since hearing him state that, I have noticed that pattern in other books, mentors and study sessions I research about people (Or now my RAS is primed for it and I look for it… now that I am aware of it)
I believe life is all about pattern recognition. I have thus incorporated reading and writing a list of affirmations daily, that gets me in a state of belief, I tend to focus on what I can control and not on my limiting beliefs. Among that, I feel that life has a more synchronicity effect, in which things line up as they should. It helps me be at ease, as I have built this habit up – it has become part of my routine.
The best quote I have to pass to you reader, if you are feeling like this takes up your time, or your morning routine can’t fit this in. This quote has helped put perspective
Meditate for an hour every day unless you are too busy. In that case meditate for two hours.
