I want to start this blog by saying I have nothing to gain from sharing the link I will post in this blog. That being said please don't stop reading now. I have always been one who believed that positive affirmation can help a person, what I didn't know was there was a right way to phrase them. I wasn't really get the results I desired from repeating my affirmations and was about to give up when I found this article. It helped me learning just some of the flaws in how was using my affirmations.
The first and biggest thing was my wording I was using the affirmation " I will lose 10 pounds" after reading I discovered what i should have been saying is "I see myself thinner and at my ideal weight" . The words "I will' was making it a future goal not something that is happening right now and your brain need to focus on the here and now not focus on something that might or might not happen or focus on something that has already happened.
My next goof was I was only saying my affirmations in the morning a handful of times as I got ready for work then again a handful of times as I got ready for bed. In order for my affirmation to stick my brain has to hear the affirmation as much as humanly possible. Think about it we didn't learn to spell read or write by practicing every once and awhile we learned from doing it a lot.
Now I am not saying making these changes was an instant cure all, but if you believe in the power of positive affirmations you may want to read the article. I read it and have reread it a few time as learn the best way to get the best results from my affirmations. Just a little FYI since rephrasing my " I will lose 10 pounds" affirmation about a month ago I do feel as if feel thinner and when I weighed in I had in fact lost 4lbs in a month instead of my normal 1 or 2. Again not saying is a cure all or quick fix but might just be worth reading.
