Not what should it be, or could it be. What would it be?
If you’re one of the many who’ve been putting off your dreams, here’s the thing…unless and until you decide to stop settling for anything other than achieving the life you’d love to be living…it’s never going to happen.
This isn’t as hard as you think.
Affirmations: a simple key
The key is to learn how to use something you do every day in the right way. In a way that gets you what you want instead of what you don’t want. An extraordinary life is just a thought or two away.
It’s using how you think and feel towards the positive and not the negative. Remember we always get what we’re focused on the most. And a great way to make sure you focus on positive ideas is the use of affirmations.
The truth is you’re always affirming something and if repeated often enough it becomes a part of your physical reality.
If, when you’ve made a mistake you find yourself saying, I’m an idiot, you’ve just affirmed something negative. Repeat this often enough and your subconscious thinks it’s being given an order to produce a reality where you continue to find reasons to call yourself an idiot. Don’t do this to yourself.
Using what you do best
All you have to do is what you do best. What you do all day, every day. Thank and feel. Only this time you’re going to be thinking and feeling of the things that are more likely to bring you that extraordinary life. And don’t let anyone who isn’t living the life of their dreams talk you out of yours.
To make it easier here’s a list of affirmations you can use every day for a variety of experiences. I use affirmations on a daily basis to programme my mind for health, success and happiness. And you can too!
Pick one thing each week that you want to change to make your life better. Focus on that for the next seven days and see if it doesn’t make a difference.
If you prefer, switch the words to fit you. Sometimes adding expressions of gratitude can feel better and not so absolute. Try adding ‘I am grateful now that I am……..’

One of the most fulfilling things a person can do is take some kind of action that causes them to improve certain areas of their life.
Think about this for a second. Remember a time that you accomplished something that showed you had improved your skills in some area?
It felt pretty good didn’t it?
Well this is where affirmations are so helpful because, before improving your life skills, you need to begin to see yourself in a different light. You need to reprogram all those outdated beliefs you have about who you are in order to reveal the truly talented and incredible being that is you.
Encourage one another.
