Affirmations in Action

Most of us are familiar with the idea of using positive affirmations to further our growth, success and achievements, but few understand how or why affirmations really work, or actually use them in our lives on a regular basis.

What is an affirmation? An affirmation is “telling yourself in times of doubt that which you know to be true at other times.”

So how does it work?  The human mind is different from those of other living creatures in that it has two unique parts – the subconscious mind, and the conscious mind.  These two ‘minds’ work together to create our thoughts, behavior and actions. The subconscious mind encompasses the ‘stuff’ of memories, conditioning, the nervous system, emotions, and your most basic underlying attitudes. It continuously sends these thoughts to your conscious mind, where this information is then used to consciously make decisions, determine goals, and gather knowledge for the purpose of taking some kind of action.

“The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

Your life is a result of your actions.  Your actions are a result of your thoughts and attitudes.  Those thoughts and attitudes are a direct result of your “automatic guidance system” and it is either operating as a success mechanism or a failure mechanism.

Are you where you want to be?  Is your life the best it can be?  Every day, consciously send your subconscious mind positive affirmations of who and where you want to be – as if you are already there. Your mind is an amazing and powerful gift – use it – it will believe what you tell it to believe and help guide you to the life you want to have and to the person you want to be.

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” – Marcus Aureluis

GENUINE LEADERSHIP

By Roxanne Kau
August 01, 2017 Category: #Prolaureate, #leadership, #i3leadership, #theleadershipchallenge

Genuine leadership is defined by heart, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion and those many intangible qualities of being and creating the most authentic person and leader that resides within each one of us. It takes time, awareness, knowledge and purpose to build our inner leadership and leadership in others. And, it takes grit. It requires a willingness to be vulnerable and show our true selves to the world; strength to speak our mind clearly and with confidence; empathy and compassion for ourselves and others while staying strong and determined; and the focus, faith and belief to do what we know is right even when it is the most difficult thing to do. Its a fascinating journey and one I have traveled for decades. The further I go, the more I realize how much I still need to learn and experience. It seems like just when I reach a new level of self-awareness, something comes into my life that reminds me I still have much to learn and many more levels to ascend. Exciting? Yes.
