Did you ever notice the more we want something the more we focus on the fact that we don’t have it yet? To get what we want, it is important to give our mind something positive to focus on. As you go about your day, be mindful of your thoughts. Are you focusing on things you prefer or that which you don’t prefer?
Here’s a suggestion to help you adjust your thinking so you can begin to get the results you want. To shift your focus to more expansive thoughts, consider writing a positive statement or affirmation about something you want to create in your life. Begin the statement with “I AM” and ensure you use positive language. It’s also important to avoid using language that reinforces the image of what you don’t want even if it feels positive.
For example, use “I am in perfect, vibrant radiant health and getting stronger every day.” Avoid using “I am in perfect, vibrant health and I am pain-free.” This example may seem positive and yet, focuses on pain. Also avoid phrases such as “I am financially stable and no longer in debt.” It’s best to avoid the word debt as it has negative associations. Instead consider using, “I am financially abundant. I have more than enough to have everything I desire and everything I own is paid for in full.” You may wish to place your statement on sticky notes in various places where you will see them regularly. Repeat the statements to yourself as you go about your day. After using it for a week, what do you notice?
