You may believe in the power of affirmations but do they often get squelched by your inner-critic? These affirmations seem like a great idea, and several experts will say they work. But, if they do work, why aren’t more people using them?
It could be that your inner-critic is stronger than any affirmations you may present for yourself. After all, we spent a lifetime developing that critic. A few short-term affirmations aren’t going to hold much weight against it.
So, does this mean you are destined to never using affirmations? Not at all. In fact, it is the purpose of affirmations to retarget your brain into believing that the affirmations are the correct way to think. For this, consistency is key. Set up a system that allows you to reinforce your affirmations.
It’s going to take some work, but it can be done. It is about switching up your routine to use affirmations you find or create. If you are stuck finding the right affirmations, ask others who have found ones that work.
Repetition and belief are two important concepts when applying your affirmations. Set up a schedule that contains the particular affirmation you want to use. Say your affirmations out loud and do it several times on each day. The more you do them, the more they will transform your thoughts to the point where they become natural.
If you skip a day that has been scheduled, don’t worry too much about it. Just pick up where you left off the next day and write in your journal about skipping. If you can pinpoint the reason why this can help keep you from doing it again.
When you set up your schedule and journal and stick to them, you will look back and wonder how your inner-critic was even able to dominate. Your affirmations will take over and be in control of your brain. Thus, you will be setting up the Law of Attraction as it relates to affirmations in a way that gives you the results you seek. Once this happens, you have the tools to make it happen over and over again. This means you will finally get to have the things you have wanted and live the life you have always dreamed about.
It is a new journey but one that will have a lasting impact. You have it within you to make the necessary changes. The question is, are you ready to silence your inner-critic?
