“Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.”
What I’m going to share with you now is both beautifully simple and stunningly powerful at the same time. It is simply the power of words and how in order to get their power you have to discover how to use them properly.
If you’ve ever read a self help book then you probably know something about affirmations, I mean they always preach on about this stuff, talk about it as some kind of holy grail, but how many people has it actually helped? Yup, very few.
You know why? … simply because there is a little voice called common sense in our minds, which stops what it considers outrageous thoughts entering our unconscious.
So, we go “I’m confident”… “I’M CONFIDENT” … “I’M CCOONNFFIIDDEENNTT” … our voice of common sense yells, “yeah, right, stop joking around, you are the shyest little thing in the world, dumb ass”.
So, what if there was a way to use these words, where the unconscious didn’t automatically reject them as a load of trash. How can we use these words effectively?
I have tinkered with many ideas for a while, but have found the best way to use them in order to get results is to focus on their personal meaning to yourself. This way you don’t create some fantasy your mind rejects, but something solid that your mind can focus on. Your mind will go “ooooh niiiiice!”
Simply ask yourself the question: “What does _____ mean to me?”
I love this, its no fluff, just solid and works. It can act like an affirmation as the more you focus on it, the more powerfully you begin to think about it. The more you start to step into those shoes. It naturally also acts as a goal, because we know that what we focus on is what we become.
Spending a bit of time focussing and feeling a word of power like confidence is immensly powerful, like a huge tank. It can remove and go over all obstacles in its path. Feel its power in your hands, feel the strength. Who’s going to stop you now? Exactly – no-one!!
This really is so beautiful. It just creates your future and the more you use it the more powerful it becomes. If you stop using it for a while, you will naturally come back to it as you realize the power. Think of this like a magic key to creating a great future for yourself.
It will help define you life and take you beyond what you can dream of. It can be effective in such a variety of situations and in so many areas of life which is what I really love about it. It is also incredibly simple and so easy to see the benefits.
This really is a useful tool to have in the toolbox and something that is easy to fall back on should you forget it. But my advice, make sure you remember it and use it as much as possible.
Here are 20 words I think are important for a successful and enriching life. You can change them to whatever suits you. Wealth, Confidence, Happiness, Energy, Determination, Love, Creativity, Health, Motivation, Kindness, Wisdom, Compassion, Learning, Achievement, Memory, Leadership, Success, Freedom, Power, Friendship.
The key to this is to really focus, really ask yourself, “what does energy mean to me?” Feel it, see it in different situations and live it. Expand on it and ask yourself again and take the answer even further. The power and clarity of your thinking will insure your success. Make it clear. Make it strong. You will like what you see. You will like what you achieve.
Once you get the hang of this, you can move on and learn even more sentence structures that empower yourself. Don’t miss it.
Take 2 or 3 words for 1 week. Focus on them for 10-30 minutes everyday and ask yourself the question “What does ____ mean to me?”
