Guide to writing your own Positive Affirmations
When you change your thoughts, you change your destiny.
Positive affirmations help turn negative thinking into positive thoughts. My Thoughts Plus provides over 1,000 affirmations, easily found by categories. However, you might want to give writing your affirmations a try as My Thoughts+ allows you to create a personalized list.
To come up with your own positive affirmations, here are some guidelines:
Goals help restore the excitement of life. Would you like to feel more calm and at peace? Get healthy? Earn more money? Be a better friend? decide what’s important to you so you can start working towards that goal. Imagine your ideal life and start visualizing how to get there.
Some categories to consider:
- Health & Well Being
- Alcohol and drug abuse
Take your goals and write a few simple statements on how you want to live your life. Write them in the present tense - you’re not trying to want something, you’re trying to live it. Pretend as if each affirmation is already true. For example, the affirmation, “My life is filled with prosperity,” would be better than, “I want to be prosperous.” This idea is to “program” your subconscious mind to believe the statements.
Positive Thought is a Creative Force!
Stick to the Positive:
I know it sounds obvious, but keep them positive. Don’t write affirmations that state what you don’t want to see and experience. For example, instead of saying, “I don’t want to be angry, try, “I have a feeling of peace and happiness.” Don’t remind yourself of the bad things, live in the positive now.
My Thoughts + allows you to upload your own photos so you can create visuals for additional reinforcement. Weather it’s a tropical paradise or a photo of the body you want, visuals can help stimulate the mind into attaining your goals.
Retrain your Brain!
Repetition & Consistency:
Research Shows people learn new information more effectively when brain activity is consistent. One of the best ways to benefit from affirmations is to simply repeat them to yourself on a regular basis. Repeating them aloud is effective because you hear them more clearly that way. Seeing them adds one more step to reinforcing them. With My Thoughts Plus you can set the affirmations on SLIDE MODE, put your iPhone in a dock and repeat them twice a day. Whatever you decide to do, be consistent to get the best results.
