If anyone has any questions on how affirmations should be done watch this great video of Jessica.
Well, I have realized that you really have to be specific with your affirmations and what you think about. I mean, I knew this but I was reminded recently how true this is.
I was driving to one of my offices and it was really raining hard. I was stuck in traffic and I was really starting to stress about being late. I kept telling myself that I would have plenty of time, relax, and breathe. I kept telling myself this phrase over and over again. I was also listening to the audio recordings of the week. Well, I finally made it to the office. I was late but what happened is that my first three appointments did not show at all. So, in essence, I did have plenty of time but not quite in the way that I meant it.
I was reminded that this happened to me a while ago as well. I made myself an affirmation tape with the phrase “I am driving a new green Subaru Outback.” I did eventually end out driving a new green Subaru Outback but it was not mine. It was owned by the company that I work for. At the time I thought that the universe has a sense of humor. Now I know that it was because I was not specific and I did not give “subby” sufficient information and details.
I am so glad that I have coaches who are helping me with my DMP to get it just right. Who knows where I would end up with vague language and not enough specifics.
Great post, Debbie!
Jessica has some great moves – and words. I think, however, that this video is more motivating – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXsQAXx_ao0
And, yes, we DO have to watch how we talk to Subby. For instance, I wouldn’t want to be the guy who, 3 times a day, tells Subby “I want to play with the Red Sox.” Ha!
I love Jessica’s affirmations! I appreciate your examples of why being specific is so important,
Thanks Willetta. I really enjoyed her enthusiasm.
