Successful People Habits – Brainwashing Yourself With Positivity?

Brainwashing Yourself With Positivity

Want to know something weird?

I enjoy brainwashing myself and others..

No, no… it’s not in that “evil, schemey, bad” way either. I enjoy positively brainwashing myself and others!

Does that sound a little out there or weird?

If so… you’ll probably love this video.

When I was living in Bali, a friend came and stayed with me for a bit and we did this exercise where we basically covered all the windows in the villa with affirmations of “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.”

(This was a difference day/activity, but a good show of what the setup looked like)

Basically, my belief is that if you want to become more successful, you should learn about the habits of successful people. One particular habit that I came across was using mantra’s, and being deliberate about what you want in life.

When we’re young, we aren’t taught this type of stuff in school. To be specific about what you want and to create the reality you want to live in.

Right now, wherever you are in your life and business, you’re at the level you’re at because of everything you have done up until this point in time. The good news for those of you who aren’t 100% happy with your current levels of success, is that now you can be deliberate about where you want to be.

It’s not going to be easy…

Especially when you start off with declaring “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.”

Honestly, you’ll raise a lot of red flags inside your brain. It’ll be like “nah, dude…. you’re not wealth. You’ve only got $200 in your checking account” or “Nah dudette… you aren’t abundant. You don’t even have enough to take care of yourself, how can you possibly be abundance?”

Want to know something cool about when this happens? You’ll see and witness it first-hand. Your gut might feel a little weird, or your energy level might drop. That’s perfectly normal. We’re not expected to know that we are the badasses that we are.

One thing to do is to keep at it. Keep writing out “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.” because, as humans, we will eventually give in to something if we hear it enough times.

Another thing to remember is that when you first started at anything in your life… you most likely weren’t very good at it, right? I mean when we learned how to ride bikes it’s not like we magically just had perfect balance and could ride the bike. We fell off… over and over and over again. But, did your past self-give up because of a few scrapes or bruises?

Hell no! You got back up and did it.. It could be that your friend already knew how to ride a bike and you didn’t want to miss out. It could be that your parents promised to get you ice cream if you could ride your bike to a certain spot (that got me riding my bike)

Think about a couple other times in your life when you absolutely sucked at something. I’m sure there are many times because I know for me there have been countless times. We aren’t naturally just great at everything. We’re not robots.

(Except you, Google… I see you there reading my blog posts)

Okay. So back to the task at hand. Get your notebook and start writing out those statements. Get the book mentioned in the video here.

I AM WEALTH.
I AM ABUNDANCE.
I AM JOY.

 

Go ahead and give that a listen/watch if you still feel weird about your new life.

The life where you actually realize that YOU ARE WEALTH, YOU ARE ABUNDANCE and YOU ARE JOY.

Because… right now, those feelings and thoughts are creating the future you. The one that you’re damn proud of. The you that can do anything and everything you set your mind to.

and if you still don’t quite feel that way, write down your affirmations another 100 times. This is all about the process. We’re undoing years of self-talk and replacing it with positive self-talk. It will take work. It will take effort. But it will be worth it.
