Daily positive affirmations can get you and your day off to a great start. If you want to make changes in your life, including positive self-talk in your daily routine helps to redirect your mind toward your goal.
That is because most of us, quite unconsciously, are victims of our own negative programming. The use of daily positive affirmations helps you counter the negative self-talk, with positive ideas. And if you doubt the power of positive thinking, check out my article on Building a Positive self Image.
It is important to realize that reciting from a daily positive affirmation list won’t, in itself, change your circumstances.
What it CAN do is help you change your negative self-talk and counter false beliefs – old conditioning-- sabotaging your progress.
When you change your negative self-talk and beliefs or fears that hold you back, you change your thinking.
When you learn how to think positive, your self-image will naturally improve. As a result you will act differently and your circumstances will naturally change as well.
Your brain is like a very sophisticated computer processing information at over a million bits per second.
The words you say and the thoughts you think create the “software” of your mind which ultimately determine your behavior.
What good is it to program your “computer” with Daily Positive Affirmations for self esteem for a few MINUTES in the day -- when for several HOURS of the day, you are thinking negatively and calling yourself names like “stupid,” “fat” or worse?
Don't get me wrong, repeating daily positive affirmations, is a good practice but you also want to watch ALL your self talk. Also consider learning self hypnosis to program those affirmations at deeper levels of mind.
