How to Fuel Your Goals with Positive Thinking
Getting Unstuck starts with setting the right mindset. To overcome obstacles and build the most effective mindset, it’s important to define success for yourself.
Feeling stuck can be painful so I encourage you to start by writing down your own definition of success. Don’t skip this step, if you haven’t already, read this article to help you order your priorities. Let’s move forward with training your mind to help you reach that success. Do you use affirmations?
Affirmations can be your secret weapon to keep your mind focused on your goal. Using affirmations daily helps you keep your thoughts positive and increase your persistence. During the most difficult moments in life, from test-taking to childbirth, I’ve used affirmations to deal with anxiety, stress and gain confidence.
For example, “I am safe and welcome everywhere that I go.”
Do you ever catch yourself daydreaming about what’s possible in your life? Maybe you can see yourself achieving great things so clearly that you struggle to believe it could be real in the future. Has this ever happened to you? The problem occurs when you respond to this new, beautiful vision with a negative thought process. Instead of telling yourself all the reasons you can’t, what would happen if you open your mind to a new idea?
What if, instead of giving up, you made some changes?
Getting Unstuck means changing the way you think. Often you can shift your mind before you can change your environment.
Affirmation: I am becoming better every day, in every way.
When you change your thought processes to focus on positive thinking, you truly can change your life. Positive thoughts enable you to motivate yourself and make it happen.
Affirmations and You
Clarifying your vision and deciding you are worthy of change is a great place to start. When you can do this, you’re giving yourself permission to change your life, attain your goals, and be successful.
There will be times when fear, impostor syndrome, or issues outside of your control make it more difficult to think positively; during these low times, you can turn to affirmations.
Affirmations have helped a lot of people shift their thinking to propel them toward their goals in a new and exciting way. Affirmations can help you change the way you think about everything.
Affirmation: I attract success into my life effortlessly.
If you’re honest with yourself, you may notice that much of your inner dialogue, how you feel about yourself, and even the way you present yourself to others are negative. This destructive thinking sets you up to fail or causes you to give up before you ever really get started.
As with anything new, creating a success mindset takes practice to achieve the best results.
The good news is: you can get all the practice you need, anytime, anywhere for free with the help of success affirmations.
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements that activate your mind to change your life, one thought at a time. They enable you to accomplish the things you wish to achieve because each word we speak has the power to evoke emotions. Affirmations work because they allow you to program – or reprogram – your thought processes, replacing negative thoughts with positive ones.
For example, if you find that you’re telling yourself what you can’t do, you can replace these negative thoughts with an affirmation for success, such as, “I am capable of succeeding without feeling overwhelmed or unfulfilled.”
If that statement doesn’t quite fit you, there are plenty of affirmations, one of my favorites as an entrepreneur is, “I have everything I need.” All you need to do is want to feel this way, and then every time you say these statements aloud you reaffirm them to your subconscious.
Can It Really Be This Easy?
As a corporate Speechwriter and leadership coach, I work closely with c-suite executives to help them shift their mindset and gain the confidence to achieve their goals. The key characteristic that sets them apart, is that they are resilient and use tools like affirmations and positive thinking to foster a Getting Unstuck mindset.
It seems too easy and free to be true, but when you talk to business leaders, you’ll find that they use statements like these to drive them toward their goals and away from negativity. They will tell you their inner dialogue is critical for their motivation, success, and achievement.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we were all born with the tools for Getting Unstuck? Sadly, in this day of digital distractions and busyness, many people prefer to focus on the negative, rather than embrace positivity.
With affirmations, you can overcome your limiting, negative beliefs and make it easier for you to make the right decisions for your life. Getting Unstuck can be a reality for you, it starts with you believing and reaffirming your positive thoughts daily for at least 30 days. You can change your reality and be a better friend to yourself when you take the time to invest in your happiness. You are extraordinary and exceptional, embrace your gifts and focus on maintaining your joy, no matter what.
Integrating affirmations into your daily ritual will enhance your life and career. When you make space to set your mind on what you want, everything becomes a little easier.
Are you still feeling stuck?
Research says to maximize the power of affirmations start listening to them when you first wake up and as you prepare to sleep to reprogram your thoughts.
Please remember, don't judge yourself or your thoughts. When we know better, we can do better.
Instead, thank your negative thoughts for protecting you and release them so that you can embrace your dreams. You are capable of achieving every one of your goals.
Believe in yourself and create your plan and affirmations to shift your mindset toward success.
