We are what we think

Every thought, reflection, and opinion that flashes through our minds at any given moment makes us who we are. If you are a confident, well adjusted person with a sunny outlook on life, it’s the result of a positive belief system.

It has little to do with our upbringing, or life experiences. In fact, quite the opposite … for some people it’s in spite of early childhood abuse, or damaging life events. Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself! We all have the ability to choose who we are and how we conduct ourselves in life. Our brains are like super- computers and we are the super computer programmers.

If you are shy and want to be outgoing, what’s stopping you? You can say, “I’m shy” and you can say, “I’ve got no confidence”. Ultimately it’s you who has created that reality, and this in turn influences your behaviour. “I’m not confident, I’m too shy” could be something you’ve been telling yourself since childhood and It’s become a mind-set: you’ve set your mind to believe it. And you’re maintaining that self-prophesy.

Thoughts that are repeated over and over become beliefs

It doesn’t matter if they’re true or not, your subconscious will back you all the way because the subconscious can’t tell the difference between something real and something that’s imagined. Water is an ideal conduct for emotions, and an adult’s body is comprised of approximately 60% water. Our way of thinking can therefore be our best friend … or our worst enemy.

Do you identity with any of the following negative self-talk

  • I’m not worthy
  • I’m unlucky
  • I feel guilty
  • I’m unloveable
  • I’m fearful of the future

If you do, then ask yourself this question: “What am I going to attract?”

Positive Thinking Statements

The subconscious mind represents a whopping 90% of the brain’s total capacity. Make your sub-conscious your best friend, not your worst enemy! Be aware when negative thoughts pop into your head and stop them immediately. Then repeat any of the below (make up your own affirmations) three times, by saying anything in three’s makes it more memorable. Leave a comment and let us know the results

  • I am confident
  • I radiate a beautiful energy
  • I am lucky
  • I am worthy
  • I am capable of giving and receiving great love
  • I deserve the very best that life can offer
  • I am a good person, and good things happen to good people
  • I do my best and it’s always good enough
  • I have a great deal of happiness and good fortune in my life

See how the word, “good” keeps appearing? That’s feeding your mind! Repeating uplifting statements every day on a regular basis has been proven to motivate people and improve happiness levels. Another quick and easy way to put positive affirmations into your subconscious on a daily basis is by turning often-used passwords into positive mantras and goals, like so:
