Attitudinal Shift Affirmation Time

By January 30, 2018Health & Fitness

How is your attitude? Are you staying true to the mantra If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me?

Just like having a positive ‘mindset’ can, a positive ‘attitude’ packs a big punch when it comes to how successful we are in all aspects of our life – far more than most of us give it credit for.

In ‘The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz, PhD says:

‘When you BELIEVE, your mind finds ways to DO.  When you believe something is impossible, your mind goes to work for you to prove why. BUT when you believe, really believe, something can be done, your mind goes to work for you and helps you find the ways to do it.’

Activity Time – Create affirmations for each goal in your life.

For every goal you have, you want to have an affirmation. If this is new to you, here are some tips for getting started:

1 – Write them down

  • Start with the words “I am”
  • Use the present tense
  • State the positive. Affirm what you want, not what you don’t want
  • Keep it specific and brief
  • Include an action word ending with –ing
  • Include at least one dynamic emotion or feeling word
  • Make affirmations for yourself, not others
  • Add the words “or something better”

2 – Make place cards with each affirmation.

Laminate them. Make them stand out.

3 – Put them in obvious places and practice!

Place them where you will see them and spend 5 minutes reading them, twice a day, morning and night. Say each affirmation (out loud if possible) then close eyes and visualise that you’ve already achieved it.

Cement your goals

To help you cement your goals, find an accountability partner, make an action plan that sets out a path to achieving your goals and check in with them regularly. Importantly, be sure to ask for help from people when you need it.
