The Traditional Affirmation Dilemma – Monday September 10, 2007

The Traditional Affirmation Dilemma

Affirmations are an extremely powerful tool for creating and maintaining thoughts that support your goals in life. The question is not whether affirmations work, the science is overwhelmingly in on that point. Most people struggle and fail with affirmations when they cannot find the time to do the repetition required for affirmations to succeed.

Affirmations work much like a personal ad campaign. The only way Coca Cola alters your thinking about its products is to deliver its message repeatedly. The same goes for affirmations – your own personal ad campaign. For them to work, you have deliver the message over and over until it becomes part of the fabric of your thinking.

Traditionally, people used cards or the “mirror chat” to memorize and repeat their affirmations. But in our busy modern world, who has the time? Other people sign up for affirmation services that send affirmations daily through e-mail or by text message on their cell phone. These are great, but what about the repetition and do they really target the area of your life you are trying to impact? You have to write them down and repeat them or use them later. You’re basically back to cards or the mirror chat.

You need a way to get the repetition that allows affirmations to work and in a format that allows them to do it without disrupting your busy schedule.

Tomorrow I will discuss why audio affirmations are the solution for affirmations users with busy schedules and how modern technology like MP3 players allow you to take your affirmations with you anywhere you are and use them whenever you need to in your life.

Have a peaceful and prosperous Monday!

The Affirmation Spot – September Sale

Thursday greetings,

I’ve mentioned in a couple of previous blogs that The Affirmation Spot website was going to launch on September 1. We were able to successfully push the site to production on that day. However, the site is still a work in progress and will be for some time to come.

Someone that visited the site over the weekend wrote me to ask what had motivated me to create the site. I responded that, in my experience, no matter how confident, evolved, or enlightened we become, we all still have the very human tendency to need a boost now and again.

There is always some area of our lives that we want to improve and the way we think about those things has HUGE impact on whether or not we will make those changes in our lives. Some of us are fighting personal demons. Some are just trying to condition their minds for highest possible performance in some endeavor. Some people just need a daily reminder of how important they are and how important their work is…especially when no one seems to care or say, “thank you.”

The vision behind The Affirmation Spot is to become an iTunes of audio (mp3) positive thoughts, affirmations, meditations, and visualizations that can be taken anywhere you go during the day and played when and where you need to hear them.

During the month of September, more than 20 affirmations on the site will be 20% off. These affirmations can be found on the front page of the site.

We are very curious to know how people are using affirmations from the site. Drop me a note and let me know how you are using your affirmations and suggest any affirmations you would like to see on the site.

Have a peaceful and prosperous Friday!

Ray

The Affirmation Spot Affirmation of the Day – Thursday August 30, 2007

Today’s affirmation is:

“I am a unique and worthy person. I require no more justification than that to be who I am.”

Being Who You Are

Everyone has an opinion on who you should be.  Your mother, your co-workers, your spouse, the church, the government, your friends; they all are constantly trying to mold you into their vision of who they think you should be. Obviously, there are times it is wise to listen to sound advice.

By and large, however, defining who you are is your right and your responsibility. Giving up that right to other people’s expectations is disempowering and leads to unhappiness.

 Starting today take back your right to be who you are. You are fully capable and fully prepared to create your own vision of you. It is your “divine right” as a human being to make those decisions for yourself.

The opinions will still come – fast and furious – but you’ll be too busy enjoying the real you to care.

Peace…

The Affirmation Spot Affirmation of the Day – Wednesday August 29, 2007

Today’s affirmation is:

“Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.”

Seeing the Opportunity in “Roadblocks”

When you hit a “roadblock” in your life…stop…wait. Often roadblocks are viewed as something negative. We don’t like our plans to be foiled and it can be pretty frustrating. However, if we can avoid the initial negative reaction, we may find that the “roadblock” is in fact a gateway to something better than we had planned.

Sometimes the things we initially view as “roadblocks” – because they interfere with our plans – are actually possibilities we had not even considered.

Today when something seems to be interfering with your plans try looking for the opportunity in it. You may find that “roadblocks” can transform into gold mines.

Peace…
