Tony Robbins said the late Jim Rohn told him, “you have very poor psychology. Makes some statements about the life you want to live. Restate it over and over and over again.”
There was a homeless man asking Tony for some change one evening and all he asked for was 25 cents. Tony then pulled out a wad of cash with a lot of 100$ bills on top of it….the man looked at the money, the quarter, and then Tony. He took the quarter and told Tony, “you’re weird!”
You get in life what you ask for. Sure, entrepreneurs will talk about “hustle, hustle, hustle….affirmations and meditations mean nothing,” but I can go so far to tell you that many of the entrepreneurs out there lack empathy and have rotten personalities. They’re in fight-or-flight mode 24/7 and they always think the “worse case” scenarios. Everyone has bluerprints; whether they’re social, geographical, financial, etc. To get over that negative conditioning, I don’t care how much you hustle, you’re going to have to reprogram your mind.
How to use your affirmations.
- Repeat your affirmations at least three times a day. The best times are the first thing in the morning, the middle of the day, and around bedtime.
- Work in depth with a few affirmations. This is much more effective than working less frequently with a greater number of them.
- Say your affirmations out loud, if possible. If not, read them silently to yourself.
- Close your eyes and visualize yourself as the affirmation describes. See the scene through your eyes, as if it were happening around you, just the way you would be seeing it in real life.
- Hear the sounds; see the images that would be present when you successfully achieve what your affirmation describes. Include any other people who would be there, and hear their words of encouragement and congratulations.
- Feel the emotions that you would experience when you achieve this goal. The stronger your feelings are, the more powerful the impact.
My most powerful affirmation…..
I’m more handsome than ever!
The drop back of this story has to be the fact that I would constantly say, “Thai women hate black men!” So what ended up happening? I attracted to me the most disgusting specimen imaginable three years ago. So, how could I reverse the negative self-talk? By using reaffirming positive self-talk.
Pick a solid three affirmations. I’m talking about affirmations that negative the most common negative self-talk phrases you spew everyday. Example, I asked my students what happened during there tenure while learning English and they constantly said, “I’m stupid” — although they go to the best university in Thailand? That’s absurd. It’s ridiculous. You can’t be STUPID in learning a language, so instead say “I’m brilliant with learning English as I learn 30 minutes in both the morning and evening.”
I’m fat, I’m stupid, I’m black, I’m not handsome enough, I’m not beautiful enough, I’m not tall enough, I’m not smart enough, I’m not experienced enough. Enough with the bullshit opinions of others. Reprogram your mind NOW!
