1. BE SPECIFIC
The wheel of change always turns in the direction of what you put into your
mind, so be specific in the
focus of your
self-talk. Specifically state what
you want to expand into your life.
You can’t go to a
destination that you don’t have, and you can’t hit a target that you can’t
see. Name your exact destination and state your specific target in order
achieve the desired result.
No matter how
fast you run, if it’s in the wrong direction, you will never reach your dreams.
So make sure you are running in the right direction.
2. BE POSITIVE
The focus of
your mind expands into your life. If you want to have a positive life, you
If you state self-talk in negative terms, you are still focusing on the
negative. If you
state self-talk in
positive terms, you have a new positive focus that makes you into a positive
person. Positive self-talk is about where you are going and not about where you
have been. It’s about your new life rather than your old life.
If you struggle with addictions, you need to say, “Free at last, thank God
Almighty, I’m free at last,” rather than saying things like “I won’t drink
alcohol or abuse meth any longer.” The first statement focuses on freedom, and
the second statement focuses on addiction. You want freedom to expand into your
life, so make freedom your mental focus.
If you are involved in abusive relationships, you must say, “I will treat my
family with love and respect,” rather than “I won’t abuse my family any
longer.” The first statement focuses on love and respect, and the second
focuses on abuse. You want love and respect to expand into your life, so focus
on love and respect.
3. USE THE LANGUAGE OF THE MIND
Say It, See It, Feel It
are the superheroes of the mind. They speak the language of the mind,
and if you want to send your mind a message, then you need to use the correct
You can change who you are by changing what you say when you talk to your mind.
To change your world you must change your words. Your words are the
steering wheel for your life, and you must say words that take you where you
want to go.
Your mind is listening to what you say all the time, so give your mind
a positive message.
You have a lot of things to discuss with your mind, and you need to
speak words of faith and hope.
You must say things like, “I am an Unstoppable, Consistently Positive, Endlessly
Persistent, Doer of dreams.” “If I really want to be positive, nobody can stop
me.” “I can change who I am by changing what I say when I talk to my mind.”
Visualization lets you see your future before it actually happens.
Sometimes you look with your eyes, and at other times you look with your mind.
Visualization is looking with your mind.
What you look at expands into your life. If you are smart, you will advertise
your dreams to yourself by displaying their pictures where you can constantly
see them. The more you look at them, the stronger the dreams become, and the
more influence they have on your destiny.
Sometimes, it's impossible to create and display a picture of your dreams
because an image doesn't exist. That's where visualization comes in. It lets
you see things in your mind's eye that you can't see with your physical eyes.
Looking with your mind's eye - visualization - has nearly the same power as
looking at an actual photograph. For all practical purposes, your brain doesn't
distinguish between an image that you see with your eyes from one that you
visualize in your mind.
Feel it: “Feel It” is the glue that makes sights and sounds stick in
your heart and mind. The power of positive emotion indelibly imprints positive
changes into your heart. When you think positive thoughts, they trickle down
into your heart to create positive emotions. When you advertise your dreams to
yourself, your heart responds with positive emotions. The more powerful the
emotion, the stronger the dreams are embedded in your heart and mind.
4. LINK IT
neuroassociation that triggers positive self-talk many times each day.
A neuroassocation is a form of instant positive thinking. When you trigger a
neuroassocation, you instantly create a positive mind.
Put your right hand in your pocket, and say, "An ounce of action is more
powerful than a megaton of fear." If you do this enough times, you will
discover that every time you put your right hand in your pocket, those words
will instantly pop into your mind. Anytime you feel afraid, you can take action
and send fear packing by simply putting your right hand in your pocket. That's
how easy it is to make a positive neuroassociation.
If you want to increase the effectiveness and power of your positive self-talk,
you simply create and trigger dozens of positive neuroassociations to instantly
push your mind in a positive direction.
5. REPEAT IT
positive self-talk until your mind repeats it back to you.
How long should you repeat positive self-talk?
You should repeat it until your mind repeats it back to you. Once it becomes an
automatic thought, you have embedded a new way of thinking in your mind. But
don’t stop there. You are just getting started. Pick another affirmation and
embed it into your mind. If you do it again and again, it won’t be long before
you become a new person with a new life. There’s no limit to how good your life
can become as long as you continue to put positive things into your mind.
6. OVERWHELM YOUR MIND
A positive mind isn’t an accident. It’s something you do on purpose. The
war for a positive mind is fought on the battlefield of focus.
persistently positive focus creates a consistently positive mind.
You have the power to have a positive mind and a positive life. All you need to
do is overwhelm your mind with a positive focus every day, all day long. It’s
just that simple, and just that hard.
must become the theme for your life.
Remember, if you want to have a
positive mind, nobody can stop you.
