The Power of Positive Affirmations: It's important to keep thoughts positive and to push negative thoughts of insecurity and disbelief out of your mind whenever they occur, replacing them instead with positive, reinforcing thoughts. Here are some examples of positive self-affirmations: "I weigh 180 lbs and have 7% body fat." This could be a positive self-affirmation for an individual weighing 200 lbs. and desiring to lose 20 lbs. of fat.
Notice that the positive self-affirmation is stated in a manner in which the goal is considered "already achieved." Belief is key. If you believe that you have already achieved your goal, your mind will lead your body to ellicit the desired results. Here are some other examples of positive self-affirmations:
"My arms measure 18" cold"
"I weigh 120 lbs and wear a size 6 dress" (female)
"I benchpress 250 lbs for 8 repetitions."
As I mentioned before, it is vital that you avoid negatives. It is even more vital that you avoid negatives when establishing your positive self-affirmations. For instance, instead of saying, "I will not eat junk foods," you should say, "I eat only lean foods." See the difference? Now let's move on to the subject of when you should use these positive self-affirmations. The most effective times to use your positive self-affirmations are, without a doubt, upon awakening in the morning and before retiring in the evening.
Upon awakening in the morning, your mind is still in a sort of "twilight zone" between consciousness and sub-consciousness, and until it is fully awake, is very receptive to thoughts.
It is at this time that you should repeat your positive self-affirmations at least 10-15 times. By the way, this is one of the reasons that I refuse to read a newspaper or turn on the news first thing in the morning. I realize that my mind is like a sponge at this time of day, ready to absorb and internalize thoughts, and I won't have any part of allowing negative material into my mind.
Before retiring in the evening is the next best time to repeat your positive self-affirmations. Repeating your positive self-affirmations and visualizing what you want as you fall asleep is a powerful way to program your subconscious mind to work throughout the night. To borrow from biblical scripture, "As you sow, so shall you reap."
In other words, as you think, so shall you be.
Try this technique of positive self-affirmations for at least 30 days and see if it doesn't start working on your mindset and strengthening and accomplishing your will to accomplish your goals. Try it with your physique goals. I am very confident that it will make a difference for you. If it works for you, and you are motivated to, I would encourage you to take it one step further and apply it to other aspects of your life. Practice keeping your thoughts positive. Guard your thoughts because they will beget real results in your life. Try these powerful life-changing techniques that I have mentioned here and let me know how they're working for you.
