Do you want to be successful? Of course you do! Everybody does, right? Well, how much? Everybody wants to be successful but so few are. This is because most people try to attain success through traditional and oftentimes ineffective methods. There is a simple way to make your dreams come true and it is this: speaking forth positive thinking affirmations.
Simply put, this means that you speak out and declare the good that you desire to see in your life. Even people from the ancient worlds recognize this powerful principle. Jesus said, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can say to this mountain to move and it will move.” We take this scripture as a picture of faith but we miss out on a very vital aspect in it which is the speaking forth of our faith and desire to see its manifestation come to pass.
So what makes positive affirmations so powerful? Isn’t words just words after all? Does it really matter what we say when we have nothing substantial or tangible that we can hold on to anyway? Friend, make no mistake-you are creative being that have the innate ability to frame your world with the words that you speak. Words are not just things that come out of our mouths- they are vessels which help make your dreams into reality.
Many self-help programs are incorporating this truth into their personal development plan. They encourage their practitioners to faithfully perform specific positive affirmations and see that what they are speaking forth will eventually manifest. You must remember one essential aspect-you should not say anything cold and clinically, just to get over it. You need to involve yourself emotionally to what it is you are saying.
Now, one thing you have to remember though, you do not say things just for the sake of saying it. You have to be emotionally involved in what you declare. Positive mental and emotional attitude is one of the foundations of an effective personal development plan. What you are doing is sending out positive vibrations which attract things of the same nature. This is the principle of the Law of Attraction.
First, think about what you want. Paint a picture of it and hold it in the screen of your mind. Allow feelings of happiness and excitement to build up inside of you as if what you are thinking about is already happening in your life. Then speak out what you want in the present tense and affirm it daily.
Say you want to be wealthy. Visualize seeing your bank account reflect your first million dollars. Hold the bank book in your hand and keep seeing that 7 figure amount printed with your name on it. Imaging the excitement and dwell on this positive emotion. Then, begin to say your positive thinking affirmations. It can go something like, “I am happy and grateful that I have $1,000,000.00 in my bank account. I expect more opportunities for wealth to happen to me today.”
