Positive affirmations are a great way to maintain a positive frame of mind. However, many people overcomplicate this process, thinking there is a scientific way of doing them, and it takes a great deal of time.
Using positive affirmation is actually a very simple process. I recently read an article by Terri Cole that shows how simple this process is. Here are simple 3 steps she provides:
- Create a well-formed belief statement. Well-formed means using short, positive phrases in the first person, present tense. These phrases should be powerful enough to create positive emotions.
- Repeat the phrases every day, preferably at the same time each day.
- Use the affirmations especially when negative thoughts begin creeping back into your head. Use the positive affirmations to counter the negative thoughts.
The process is not much more difficult than that. Terri provides some examples in her article. I have attached a link to the article here. The bottom line is to keep feeding your mind with these positive thoughts. You will begin to believe these concepts and ultimately act them out. Then you will see them play out in your life. Enjoy the blessings : )
