The power of personal affirmations.
By using personal affirmations you are calling to all of you - who you are in the present tense. So often we say I am… followed by a negative statement. It is important to catch yourself doing this as as it reflects these negative thoughts and brings them to life. Say I am happy, I am healthy, etc etc as you are calling to the universe you will feel these wonderful things that if you honestly believe must be true. Say affirmations that are appropriate to you and say them over and over again. Out loud. Say them until you can look at yourself and know you mean them. Send these positive thoughts out to the world and feel the goodness fill up inside of you.
Addicted to your Comfort Zone.
If you are always thinking about how to feel and be really, really safe then making a positive change will be impossible. The unknown and change is uncomfortable and scary to the mind because it tends to want your existence to be stable and continue to be as it has been so far.
What to do about it:
- Do it in small steps.What holds us back in our zone of comfort is often a fear or that facing that fear head on might be overwhelming. Doing things in small steps allows you to stretch your comfort zone and slowly making it less uncomfortable and frightening.
- Focus on the positive past.Realize it can be fun to get out of your comfort zone despite what your mind and feelings might be telling you before you get started. Think back to the previous times when you have broken out of your comfort zone. Focus on the positive memories, when you got out there, when you took a chance. And you will probably remember that it wasn’t so bad, it was actually fun and exciting and something new to you.
