You are exactly what you think

Want to know who you are? Tune in to the conversation inside your head. Your thoughts accurately reflect who you are. Yes, this is probably something you can blame your mommy for…but something you shouldn’t!

The minute we learned to form thoughts, we began to form thoughts about ourselves. These thoughts were a reflection of the world (and people) around us. We mirrored what and who they told us we were…to an extent.

No doubt, you learned, as I did, that the one thing your parents could not control were your thoughts. However, your pattern of self-talk was formed. Chances are it reflected the language you were being fed by your caregivers. The good news is, you can change. Sure, you learned a habit when you were a kid. But you are all grown up! Time to embrace the new and improved (i.e. positive) self; get off your kiester and be positive.

There are many methods to changing your self-talk. More about those in future posts. What I want to you start for this week is begin a regiment of saying good things to yourself.

Make sure they are positive statement, not negatives masquerading as positives. For example, ‘I won’t be negative’ is a negative statement masquerading as a positive. Ten times each day make a positive statement to yourself (and mean it). You will feel better about yourself by weeks end. Because you are what you think you are…think yourself into a more positive you!

Here are a few statements to get you started:

CHALLENGES BRING OPPORTUNITIES

I CAN CHOOSE A POSITIVE FRAME OF MIND

I CAN HANDLE WHATEVER COMES

TODAY HAS LIMITLESS POSSIBILITIES

I CAN FIND BALANCE IN MY LIFE

I CAN FIND LOVE AND SUPPORT

I CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING

I am a big fan and user of recordings by Kelly Howell. Her Brain Wave Therapy products are based on the principals of Biofeedback. I began using these products over 12 years ago when a friend gave me her work-out tape. I’d never make it through a gym session without it. I also use her Positive Thinking CD. (both of these products use subliminal messages).

Here is a link to her products:
