Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. … affirmations can help you to perform better at work. It’s like in marketing. If you keep seeing an ad or a post which is constantly promoted by some company like The Marketing Heaven, you’ll eventually believe it. Daily affirmations have the power to change your life.
Everything that we repeatedly say to ourselves out loud or in our thoughts are an affirmation. The Reticular Activating System (RAS) is a part of our brain that makes words that get repeated over time as part of our identity, positive or negative.
Just like sowing seeds in a fruitful garden. When we water and nurture the seeds every day, they will grow (most of them). That´s like repeating an affirmation.
If you have a tomato plant seed…you plant that seed…water it (focus)…can you expect to get apples? No of course not. You expect to get tomatoes.
That´s how our subconscious mind works. It doesn´t care if you want the seeds you plant to grow. As long as you water and nurture them (affirm repeatedly), they will grow.
The best times to repeat an affirmation is when the subconscious mind is most receptive: after waking, immediately before going to sleep, and at the beginning and end of meditation.
