We are all familiar with the concept of self talk. Infact this internal dialogue is a habit which starts right from our childhood and impacts our various life experiences. Research reveals that 70% of our self talk is either negative or self critical. If these thoughts stay longer they gain power and affect the life of that person. It is vital to be careful of what goes into your subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind cannot differentiate reality from thoughts; hence it accepts your words as a description of reality and works towards it. How often do you tell yourself that it is difficult for me to acquire money, or I am not good enough, or things do not come to me easily, your subconscious mind accepts this and puts obstacles in your way.
To obtain positive results affirmations have to be phrased with positive words.
Though both sentences express the same idea , but in different words, the first one is a negative sentence and creates a mental image of weakness. The second one on the other hand creates an image of strength.
So , instead of repeating negative and useless words and phrases in your mind, why not choose an affirmation to help you choose the life you want?
