Rachel Hollis – Made for More

“You didn’t make it this far to only make it this far.”

~Rachel Hollis


rachel_hollis_made_for_moreAbout four months ago, my wife April told me I needed to listen to someone. She’d been turned onto a motivational author and speaker. So, we listened to parts of her book – Girl, Wash Your Face. We watched videos. We watched The Morning Show she hosts with her husband, Dave. We listened to her podcasts (RISE and RISE TOGETHER). Tonight we visited the local AMC Theatre and thoroughly enjoyed her documentary – Made For More.

Rachel Hollis has become a phenomenon in the world of personal development and beyond. She has become the next-generation voice and face in the field and deservedly so. She brings an energy, vibrancy, and relevance that’s refreshing and in your face.

She’s targeted the female audience – an audience she connects with amazingly – but her message is one we all ought to be listening to. I was disappointed that I was the only man in an audience filled with women this evening. I’m glad the women are gleaning Rachel’s energy, but men could benefit as well.

Her no-nonsense, in-your-face approach is different from the world of Louise Hay, but it’s balanced by a readily apparent passion to see the members of her community – or as she refers to them her tribe – reach for and attain their highest dreams.

More than coming with a powerful, passionate message, Rachel is an outstanding communicator who knows her audience, knows her stuff, and delivers it with a vigor that transforms hearts and minds.

I used to wonder what would happen to this space when the Wayne Dyers and Louise Hays passed. Rachel is leading the charge for a new generation that speaks hard truths from a space of love.

Watching her, I remember why I started The Affirmation Spot eleven years ago. I feel a renewed fire burning within me to tell my story and let it help those who need to hear it. She’s inspired me to dig deeper and bring more to all of you. I can think of no higher praise than that.

The future of personal development is in good hands. I’ll be reading, watching, and listening and you should be too.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Power To Be You Cover 2018.jpg.001Day after day, our popular culture, our own conditioning, and the people around us pepper our minds with disempowering ideas and mindsets. Our minds are vacuums.

25 Miscellaneous Affirmations for Every Day Life

First Person and Second Person Affirmations

athlete_hphones.jpgToday I am sharing 25 miscellaneous affirmations. Each follows the first person, second person formula. I’ve written before on the importance of using first and second person affirmations.

Many affirmation gurus suggest that all affirmations be written in the first person. First person affirmations are the most effective when reading, writing, or saying affirmations. Most people do not feel comfortable looking into a mirror and using “you” affirmations.woman_chair_hphones_rs.jpgHowever, audio affirmations open up a whole new realm. Listening is more passive than speaking or reading and you are used to hearing people speak to you in the second person.

My 25 years of experience with audio affirmations demonstrates that second-person affirmations are highly effective as audio affirmations. They offer “outside” confirmation of the first-person version of the affirmation.

For example, following “I am beautiful” with “You are beautiful” provides subconscious external confirmation of the first-person claim.

Negate and Affirm: The Power of But

Today’s Thought:

Words have amazing power. When you use them well, they can power you.

The Power of ButFrom time immemorial, back through Hay, Peale, W. Clement Stone, and Wallace Wattles, it has been affirmation heresy to use any words that are perceived as negative in an affirmation. I have one thing to say about that….BUT.

Actually, the advice of all these affirmation gurus is not wrong. What they have taught is word your affirmations in a way that affirms what you want not a negative you don’t want. Example: I am winning rather than I don’t want to lose. BUT

Many years ago, when I started using and writing affirmations, I noticed how powerful the wold BUT can be when used in an affirmation. I call this negating and affirming.

BUT is a very powerful word in the English language. It consciously and unconsciously negates what was said before it. You hear examples everyday and you have experienced its power. “I love you, BUT…” “You’re great at what you do, BUT…” What does that BUT do? It’s an overt negation of what you just said. It diminishes its meaning and replaces it with what you are about to say next. In these cases, it is often a criticism, BUT…

Used with an affirmation, BUT can boost the power of the affirmation. It negates the negative thought and adds power to the affirmation that comes after. You can say something positive about the issue, negative thought, or even perceived challenge, negate it with BUT, and then follow that with an affirmation to overcome it.

Examples:

Alcohol is strong, BUT I AM stronger!
Getting published is tough, BUT I AM publishing my book!
I may face setbacks, BUT I am overcoming them!

Try this. It is very powerful. Subconsciously, negating is powerful and affirming is powerful. Together they will boost your affirmations.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

WHAT You Seek is WHAT You Find

Today’s Thought:

Consciously or unconsciously, we attract what we are seeking into our lives.

Everyone is familiar with the principle, as described in the Bible – “Seek and you will find”. This is a foundational element of applying the mind to resolving the chaotic world around us. It’s a very simple idea that seeking leads to finding.

However, there is a principle that takes that idea a step further. It is the advanced understanding that WHAT you seek is WHAT you find.

Our minds are finely tuned instruments… read the rest of the article.
