Every Step Counts: Affirmative Master!

Chris Hunt, author of the Every Step Counts column

I want YOU to succeed.

I want the last few months of 2018 to be the best months
of 2018.

I want you to start 2019 with a bang.

I want you to wake up and own every decision in your
life.

I want you to be the best that you can possibly be.

As always, I like to start the column with some hard-hitting
points from the previous week and the quotes above get the points across
perfectly.

I know YOU and I want YOU to succeed.

I know YOU want the end of this year to be an amazing period
of the year just like ME.

I know YOU and I want to start 2019 with a bang.

I know YOU want to wake up and own every decision in your
life just like I DO.

And finally, I know YOU want to be the best that you can
possibly be.

This week I want to talk to you about AFFIRMATIONS.

It’s a bit of a selfish reason this week and that is
because I love the whole concept of them. I USE AFFIRMATIONS every single day
and have done for some time. The type of AFFIRMATIONS that I like to use are
the “I AM” method. Here are a few examples:

  • I am amazing. I am powerful. I am a great human
    being.
  • I am a professional cyclist and I am a role
    model.
  • I am a great Dad. I am a great partner. I am a
    hard worker. I am a happy person.
  • I am a successful entrepreneur and I am a living
    legend.
  • I am the number one provider in my industry. I
    am in demand every day for my services.
  • I am happy. I am well behaved for my mum and
    dad. I am really popular.
  • I am the best runner in the UK. I am wanted by
    sportswear brands all around the world.
  • I am a sales master. I am a magnet for success.
    I am the cause of everything in my life.
  • I am the number one sportsman in the planet and
    other legends want me in their life.
  • I am the man that keeps my family together. I am
    a great husband and a great father.
  • I am amazing at everything I put my mind too. I
    am the role model for my children.
  • I am a financial megastar. I am someone that
    turns problems into opportunities.

Now, the affirmations above are actual AFFIRMATIONS that
I have developed with some of my current clients. They get used every day and
to be honest the results are unbelievable.

They set the state of mind you aspire to have.

They enable the unconscious mind to create opportunities
for the conscious mind to put into action.

They basically are a POSITIVE STATEMENT IN THE PRESENT
TENSE.

Another phrase for an AFFIRMATION is an
AUTO-SUGGESTION.  They work as they have
the ability to program your mind into believing the stated concept. When you
repeat them often, and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.
Check out these awesome descriptions below from psyche central and Louise Hay:

“Control your thoughts and you create your reality. A
positive mind-set begets positive end results. “

“An affirmation is anything you say or think.”

“An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on
the path to change.”

“All of our self-talk, our internal dialogue, is a stream
of affirmations. You’re using affirmations every moment whether you know it or
not. You’re affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and
thought.”

A nice way of putting it is that they need an atmosphere
to grow in. Affirmations are like seeds planted in soil. Poor soil means poor
growth. Rich soil means high abundant growth. The more you choose to think
thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work.

So here are 10 quick tips and ideas that can get you
started straight away:

  1. Start
    all affirmations with the words “I AM.”
  2. Keep
    all affirmations POSITIVE and use POSITIVE language.
  3. Have
    a cheetsheet card full of positive words that you can use for your affirmations
    and keep it on you at all times.
  4. Create
    a regular FUNDAMENTAL affirmation that you use multiple times per day.
  5. Record
    you own guided affirmation session and make it last roughly 10 minutes. Try and
    listen to it at least once per day.
  6. Create
    a simple short one sentence affirmation for last thing at night to help you
    relax and feel great about yourself.
  7. Try
    saying them out loud and in your head and see which one you prefer.
  8. Link
    emotion to your affirmations. The MAGIC happens when the PSYCHOLOGICAL meets
    the PHYSIOLOGICAL.
  9. Smile
    after your affirmation session and really feel the improved state of mind.

And finally …

  1. Go
    out your comfort zone and make it as out there as possible. Really exaggerate
    the claim, set the movement in motion.

So, there we go … start AFFIRMING today. What you waiting
for?

I want YOU to succeed.

How much do you want to succeed?

Happy Thursday and get creating those AMAZING, POSITIVE and
RESOURCEFUL states
