I’ve been thinking a lot about retraining my mind. I’ve already completed my affirmations challenge for the month of January. I was never consistent with saying affirmations every day, but I made it a priority to say them everyday this month and I actually finished it. Before I never even made it a week before forgetting about it. I will get into my January challenge in another post (probably later in the week). Right now, I want to talk about visualization. I’ve always been a visual person. I could always picture my dreams and me achieving them, because I am such a big day dreamer in general. However, I don’t visualize the same goals every day and that’s what I want to try. I am currently reading Manifesting Millions: Convert Fantasy to Reality. In the book they mention visualization and I just really want to give a try. I also want to watch what I say. Sometimes I don’t realize the negative things I tend to say, even when I am joking. In one of the sections they mentioned how we should take the words “if” and “but” out of our vocabulary when it comes to talking about our dreams and goals. If I am speaking about my goals I tend to always say “when or if” and I should just leave it at “when.” When I add that “if” to it, I usually throw that in because of self-doubt. I just have to realize that adding that if into the equation is almost canceling out what I am trying to release into the universe. We have to speak positive. We can’t give mixed signals and expect things to work out. We have to believe in ourselves. I have to be honest; it is a challenge. I have to reprogram my mind. As hard as it is, I am still trying. I really want to succeed in life, and I am trying to make all the necessary changes to do so.
The book also mentioned being realistic about goals and having the patience to understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day. You have to put the right amount of time and energy into your goal which is making me realize that I really need to pick one thing to focus on for now. I know in my previous posts I mention how hard it is to focus on 1 to 2 things, but obviously focusing on 10-15 things aren’t working for me. Something has to change. I’ve been reading a lot this past week and I feel like I am gaining a lot of insight and clarity. At this point, I just want answers. I want to know what works and what doesn’t, so I am testing it all. It’s the process of elimination all 2021. I want to stop wasting time and figure out my path. I’ve been going in circles and it’s time to just aim towards a destination. I am ready and I can’t wait to figure out the path I land on. Now I must get back to this book. I am hoping to finish it before the night is over. 😊 Good night everyone and take care!
