00:00
hey this is Leo for actualised org and
00:03
in this quick self-help segment we are
00:06
going to talk about positive
00:07
affirmations all right so what are
00:09
affirmations how do they work do they
00:12
actually work and can you use them to
00:14
create positive changes in your life and
00:16
the answer of course is yes you can use
00:19
them and if you study personal
00:21
development and you study as much of
00:22
this stuff as I have literally over a
00:24
hundred thousand dollars worth hundreds
00:26
of books some of the best seminars and
00:28
you study all these people that are into
00:31
personal development you see that they
00:33
are all on board with positive
00:36
affirmations so I’m on board with it too
00:38
I’ve been using it now for about six
00:40
months you’ve been using them actively
00:41
and I’ve been getting some amazing
00:43
results and so I want to share with you
00:44
some of my quick little tidbits and tips
00:47
and techniques for how to get positive
00:49
affirmations to work magic in your life
00:51
all right so what are positive
00:54
affirmations and then we’ll get into the
00:55
how-to in this video and there’s going
00:57
to be more that I’m going to talk about
00:58
in other videos this is kind of an intro
01:00
so basically a positive affirmation is
01:04
simply a short statement that you say to
01:07
yourself and repeat to yourself in order
01:10
to get your subconscious mind
01:12
reprogrammed and thinking along and
01:14
empowering train of thought so what’s an
01:17
example well one that I’m using right
01:18
now for example is simply this I am a
01:22
millionaire that’s my affirmation and
01:25
what I do is I repeat it to myself again
01:28
and again and again so it would go
01:30
something like this I am a millionaire I
01:32
am a millionaire I am a millionaire I am
01:36
a millionaire I am a millionaire I am a
01:40
millionaire
01:40
and that’s basically what it is pretty
01:44
simple right of course I am not
01:47
technically right now a millionaire even
01:49
though I am financially independent so
01:52
what is going on here
01:54
why would I be saying this to myself
01:55
isn’t this delusional isn’t this
01:57
unrealistic isn’t this fantasy well when
02:02
you go after goals and when you start to
02:07
really get on board with this idea that
02:09
you have a lot of potential within you
02:11
that you’re not actually
02:13
and you’re not actualizing right now
02:15
then what you’re starting to understand
02:18
is that in order to get to where you
02:20
want to be you have to have some sort of
02:23
faith some sort of confidence in
02:24
anything successful that you’ve done in
02:26
your life we can pretty much look back
02:28
yet that history that you’ve gone
02:30
through and notice that the places where
02:33
you succeeded at where the places where
02:34
you were confident we had some sort of
02:36
faith that something would happen and
02:37
you have some sort of vision beyond
02:40
current reality and the places where you
02:42
failed are those places where you were
02:44
very doubtful second-guessing yourself
02:47
very fearful and you were very much
02:49
pinned down by current circumstances by
02:52
current reality so the point of
02:54
affirmations are to create empowering
02:58
messages to your mind right because you
03:01
have your conscious mind then you have
03:02
the subconscious mind and the
03:04
subconscious mind tends to be very
03:06
stubborn and it tends to want to stay
03:08
where it currently is it tends to want
03:10
to produce the current results that
03:12
you’ve been getting in your life so the
03:13
reason for example that I have this
03:15
affirmation that I want to be a
03:16
millionaire is because I’ve been dealing
03:18
with some issues around limiting beliefs
03:20
around money and I’ve been doubting
03:22
whether I could be a millionaire and I
03:24
needed to basically reprogram my
03:27
subconscious mind to believe that I
03:30
could be a millionaire and a very simple
03:33
magical almost unbelievable fact about
03:39
your subconscious mind is that it
03:41
believes whatever you repeat to it
03:44
consistently and it doesn’t matter how
03:47
true or false the statement is whatever
03:51
you repeat to your subconscious mind
03:54
consistently eventually it just soaks
03:56
that in your subconscious mind is like a
03:58
sponge now there are a couple of tricks
04:00
here that you have to follow in order to
04:02
actually get affirmations to work for
04:05
you so I’m going to go down and give you
04:06
my quick little how-to list so when
04:09
you’re doing affirmations a couple of
04:11
things you want to make sure that you’re
04:12
doing number one is that and it’s the
04:14
most important part is that you have to
04:16
do your affirmations daily every single
04:19
day without missing a day that means you
04:22
do it today you do it tomorrow you do it
04:25
the next day
04:26
you do it the following day then you do
04:28
it again and again and again and again
04:31
and the next week and the next week in
04:33
the next month the next month and you
04:34
just keep doing it you have to drill it
04:36
into your subconscious because your
04:38
subconscious is like an animal mind it
04:41
is not thinking logically about things
04:44
this principle that your that your mind
04:47
will take on whatever you feed it and
04:49
say to it regardless of truth or falsity
04:53
that principle only works through brute
04:56
force and repetition so you say to
04:58
yourself consistently all the time it’s
05:00
like training a dog that’s basically
05:01
what you’re doing is you have that dog
05:03
mind inside of you somewhere you have a
05:05
mind that’s a that’s very basic and
05:08
primitive beyond the conscious mind that
05:11
we have as humans we have this
05:12
subconscious primitive mind and that
05:15
primitive mind has to be trained through
05:17
brute repetition and the key there is to
05:19
not miss a single day the way that I do
05:22
affirmations is five-minute periods so I
05:24
literally will take a timer and I will
05:27
set aside some time in the morning or in
05:29
the evening some quiet time by myself
05:31
where I just sit down and I press the
05:33
timer for five minutes I set it at five
05:35
minutes I press it go and then I start
05:38
doing the affirmations and I just repeat
05:39
for five minutes straight and I will say
05:42
to myself I’m a millionaire I am a
05:45
millionaire I am a millionaire I’m a
05:47
millionaire and so I’ll say that for
05:49
five whole minutes straight without any
05:52
distractions without any interruptions
05:54
you have to do this in a very quiet
05:56
environment you can do with your eyes
05:59
open you can also do with your eyes
06:00
closed and so that’s it that’s pretty
06:02
much how informations work but you have
06:05
to do that all the time you do it
06:06
consistently I would say at least commit
06:10
yourself to a month of affirmations on
06:12
whatever specific issue you want to be
06:16
working on so if it’s money and you want
06:17
to work on abundance of money then you
06:20
would say this I am a millionaire
06:22
affirmation to yourself for at least a
06:24
month straight without missing a single
06:26
day and maybe even two months or three
06:29
months depending on how how much problem
06:33
you’re having in that area so the more
06:34
problem you’re having in there the more
06:36
deep-seated that that problem is that
06:39
limiting belief the
06:40
grounded it is in childhood events then
06:43
the more you’re going to have to use the
06:45
affirmations so that’s basically the
06:48
most important thing is to do
06:49
consistently and this is where most
06:51
people fail is that they don’t do it
06:52
consistently they do it on and off and
06:54
so they don’t get the results so I would
06:57
say that if you’re not going to do it
06:58
consistently and by consistently mean
07:00
every single day 100% then don’t even do
07:02
affirmations they’re not going to work
07:04
for you so either do it consistently or
07:06
don’t do them at all now if you do
07:09
decide to do them consistently then
07:10
you’re going to want to keep in mind a
07:11
couple of other points about
07:12
affirmations the next point is that an
07:14
affirmation is a short concise phrase
07:18
ideally a phrase not even a sentence so
07:21
notice in this example that we’re using
07:23
I am a millionaire
07:25
very short simple phrase right this is
07:28
not some long-winded airy-fairy
07:31
conceptual philosophical statement or
07:35
some sort of you know flowery mission
07:38
statement or some sort of paragraph or a
07:40
short story about yourself this is just
07:43
a simple little phrase and that’s what
07:44
you want to keep it to always keep as
07:46
few words in your affirmation as you can
07:48
get to get the gist across right so keep
07:51
them short keep them sweet keep them
07:53
pithy because your mind your
07:55
subconscious mind again it likes those
07:57
slogans this is something that you want
07:59
to be able to repeat yourself
08:00
many many times within five minutes and
08:02
it needs to be something that you don’t
08:03
need to even be able to read off piece
08:05
of paper you can just memorize it very
08:07
simple I have a millionaire I am a
08:09
millionaire I have a millionaire let me
08:11
throw out some other examples for you
08:12
how about I have unlimited energy I have
08:16
unlimited energy I have unlimited energy
08:18
I have unlimited energy how about what’s
08:23
another one
08:24
I love being confident I love being
08:27
confident
08:28
I love being confident I love being
08:31
confident how about for those
08:34
procrastinators out there in the crowd
08:35
I’m always taking action I’m always
08:38
taking action I’m always taking action
08:41
I’m always taking action right you can
08:44
literally couple an affirmation for any
08:45
problem area in your life or any kind of
08:48
goal that you set for yourself so
08:49
whether it’s a fitness goal relationship
08:51
goals money
08:52
career goals business goals hobby goals
08:56
any kind of personal development goals
08:58
that you have any kind of thoughts that
08:59
you want to have you can create an
09:02
affirmation for it and it’s such a
09:04
flexible technique which is why it’s so
09:05
powerful and awesome ok the next point
09:08
we talked about keeping the phrases
09:09
short and I gave you some short examples
09:11
the next point is make sure that they’re
09:14
stated in the positive so notice if I’m
09:17
struggling with money and I have
09:19
limiting beliefs around money I am still
09:21
going to use a positive affirmation to
09:23
work on that I’m not going to say I you
09:28
know I’m not going to go broke I’m not
09:30
going to go broke I’m not going to go
09:31
broke don’t do that instead flip it
09:35
around and say it in the positive I’m
09:36
going to be wealthy I’m going to be
09:38
wealthy I’m going to be wealthy I’m
09:40
going to be wealthy
09:41
right state stuff in the positive always
09:43
and this can be a little bit tricky
09:45
especially for some of us negative
09:47
thinkers who are always caught on this
09:49
idea that we have to be moving away from
09:51
things whether you’re stuck and you’re
09:53
unhealthy right now and you want to say
09:56
well I I just want to be to my normal
09:59
health I don’t really want to be super
10:00
healthy I just don’t want to be
10:01
unhealthy so in that case you might have
10:04
this natural tendency to say well I’m no
10:06
longer fat I’m no longer fat I’m no
10:09
longer fat you might do an affirmation
10:11
like that but that is a negative
10:13
affirmation you want to flip it around
10:15
and say I am fit I am fit I am fit or
10:19
I’m at my ideal weight pick up pick a
10:22
number pick whatever weight you want to
10:24
be at for me it was 170 I’m at 170 I’m
10:27
at 170 I’m at 170 whatever that is
10:31
make sure it’s positive it’s always got
10:34
to be positive because your mind your
10:37
subconscious mind especially tends to
10:40
exclude that not that negative part so
10:42
when you say I don’t want to be fat what
10:44
happens is that your mind just kind of
10:46
takes out and crosses out the don’t and
10:50
it just says I want to be fat and it
10:52
just has that picture of fat you want to
10:54
move your mind off from the negative
10:57
pictures onto the positive pictures so
10:59
this is also dovetailing with
11:00
visualization so that is also an
11:04
important point is keeping stuff
11:05
positive
11:06
another point is start your affirmations
11:09
if you can with I am it’s nice to start
11:13
an affirmation with I am because this
11:16
goes to your identity this goes into
11:19
shaping your beliefs in your self-image
11:21
about who you really are at the core so
11:23
when I say I am a millionaire that’s
11:26
something about me that’s like me saying
11:29
that there’s something within me that is
11:31
generating money that’s attracting money
11:33
it’s like I was born to be a millionaire
11:35
right it’s more I debt I’m more
11:37
identifying with that statement and this
11:39
is shaping my self-image on a deep level
11:41
if I do it repeatedly whereas if I just
11:44
say I have lots of money or I you say
11:49
something like I’m making lots of money
11:53
that is not so much identity-based you
11:56
want to make sure your affirmations are
11:57
grounded in identity so I’m always
11:59
confident I’m just a confident kind of
12:03
person I’m naturally confident right you
12:05
want to make sure that the things that
12:07
you’re adopting are natural to you that
12:09
you’re stepping into that role in your
12:11
like role playing it you’re feeling it
12:12
so if you want to be more confident
12:14
you’re naturally confident if you want
12:16
to be wealthy you’re naturally wealthy
12:18
you don’t struggle to be wealthy you
12:20
just naturally are that is a powerful
12:23
way to go about it so I am I am this I
12:25
am that I am healthy I’m wealthy
12:27
whatever you want it to be next is be
12:29
specific use the specific affirmations
12:32
so the more specific you can make it the
12:34
better you want to be earning certain
12:36
dollar amount per year put that into
12:39
your affirmation do you want to be
12:41
driving a certain type of car with a
12:43
certain model on it put that into your
12:46
affirmation do you want to be living in
12:48
a certain state in a certain city in a
12:51
certain neighborhood in a certain house
12:52
on a certain street put all that into
12:55
your affirmation the more specific then
12:57
the more your mind will latch on to it
12:59
and feel like it’s real and the next
13:01
point and the last point I think I’ll
13:02
make is make sure that your affirmations
13:04
are stated in the present tense what
13:08
does this mean well I can say I will be
13:10
a millionaire or I can say I am a
13:14
millionaire right now this one’s a
13:17
little bit tricky and took me some time
13:18
to get my mind around this idea
13:20
cuz I always tend to say well I’m not a
13:23
millionaire right now I can believe the
13:25
fact that maybe I’ll be a millionaire in
13:26
the future but it sounds silly to say
13:28
that I’m a millionaire right now
13:29
no the point of the affirmation is that
13:32
you’re trying to instill something in
13:34
yourself a belief a sense of confidence
13:36
and faith to do that you say that you
13:39
are right now even though you are not so
13:43
yes in the outer world right now I am
13:45
NOT a millionaire that’s just a matter
13:46
of fact but in my inner world I’m
13:49
reprogramming myself and I’m saying that
13:51
I am a millionaire I’m trying to get in
13:53
touch with that feeling of billing it
13:54
being a millionaire what does it feel
13:56
like what does a millionaire think like
13:59
what does a millionaire visualize I’m
14:01
trying to get into that role and the way
14:03
you do that is not by imagining that
14:05
you’re going to be a millionaire
14:05
sometime in the future it’s about just
14:09
drilling into your mind that you’re a
14:10
millionaire right now and trusting that
14:13
that will have its effect and it does
14:16
have its effect because that trying to
14:19
principle whatever you repeat and say to
14:21
your mind over and over again is what
14:23
it’s going to absorb is always at play
14:26
so if that’s the case wouldn’t you want
14:28
to leverage that as best as you can and
14:31
feed yourself with the most powerful
14:33
type of affirmations possible well I do
14:35
that’s why I put them in the present
14:37
tense all right so those are my points
14:39

14:41
