Direction Not Speed

Happy Saturday, my friends.

This one spoke to me this morning. We’re always in such a rush when slow and steady wins the race.

If you’re on course, forget the speedometer.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

Are You An Extraordinary Thinker?

12 THINGS THAT SEPARATE EXTRAORDINARY THINKERS FROM ORDINARY THINKERS

Do you see yourself as average, ordinary, middle-of-the-pack? A lot of people see themselves that way and are perfectly content with it. Just always know that it is a belief, not a fact. You can shift from ordinary to extraordinary any time you choose.

You are extraordinary. It’s right there beneath that ordinary facade. I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. You sense that there is something extraordinary within you and you are ready to unleash it in your life and, yet, you don’t.

A big part of it is shifting your paradigms from those that support ordinariness to those that promote the extraordinary in you.

Here are 16 paradigm-shifting distinctions between ordinary mindsets and extraordinary ones. Keep these posted somewhere that you can see them during your day. When you catch yourself thinking ordinary, you can instantly change to extraordinary.

1) Ordinary thinkers are fear-driven. Extraordinary thinkers are love-driven.
2) Ordinary thinkers believe they are victims of fate. Extraordinary thinkers know they are choosers of destiny.
3) Ordinary thinkers approve the status quo. Extraordinary thinkers improve the status quo.
4) Ordinary thinkers strive to be cool. Extraordinary thinkers strive to be themselves.
5) Ordinary thinkers are tenant farmers in the paradigms provided by others. Extraordinary thinkers are constantly planting new and exciting paradigms in their lives and in the world.
6) Ordinary thinkers trust experts. Extraordinary thinkers listen to experts, but trust themselves.
7) Faced with adversity, ordinary thinkers give up. Faced with adversity, extraordinary thinkers give more.

8. Ordinary thinkers expect little and receive it. Extraordinary thinkers expect much and receive it.
9) Ordinary thinkers employ labels. Extraordinary thinkers seek understanding.
10) Ordinary thinkers believe in chances. Extraordinary thinkers believe in choices.
11) Ordinary thinkers think life happens to them. Extraordinary thinkers know life happens through them.
12) Ordinary thinkers allow their doubts to rule them. Extraordinary thinkers allow their dreams to rule them.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks to all of you, this year has been one of amazing growth on this blog. I want to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to read, comment, and share my posts.

I hope The Affirmation Spot has become a positive refuge for you on the Internet. That is the goal.

Let’s keep the energy flowing and continue filling our minds with insight, positivity, and practical tips for bettering our lives and bettering the world.

By any measure, 2020 has been a challenging year. It’s my belief that we can aspire, in 2021, to more than “getting back to normal.” We can entertain and achieve bigger dreams individually and together.

Our country, our species, and our planet can lean into our enormous potential to usher in a new era of positive change on so many fronts, if we have the courage to choose it.

I want to wish everyone reading this a beautiful holiday season. Thank you again for your contributions to growing this group.

Be well. Be safe. Find your inner joy.

10 Powerful Second-Person Affirmations to Start Your Day Right

Good morning, my friends. Tons of projects going on at the day job and in my personal life. I haven’t been able to blog as much as I’d like to the past few weeks. Thank you stick with me.

What’s a second-person affirmation? Second-person affirmations are affirmations phrased with you rather than I. They are powerful for replacing old thoughts and programming that you received from the outside. I’ve found, over the years, that they work better than I affirmations for moving old thoughts that you received from other people out of your mind.

They also have a different vibration a certain power that’s different than I affirmations. Both are important and I recommend using both.

Here’s 10 to start your day right today.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!
