If you really think small, your world will be small.
If you think big, your world will be big.

Hello everyone.
In life we face lot of emotions on daily basis. Sometimes good and at times bad. We go through lot of ups and downs, due to which our emotions are always on a roller-coaster ride. Specially with current pandemic situation, we all are feeling a bit gloomy. We all are emotionally down because somehow our life is not going the way we want or the way we have planned it to go. In such situation it is very difficult to stay positive and feel confident about yourself. In such times how to keep those self sabotaging thoughts and stress away from us?

What are affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements that we tell our self repeatedly to challenge our sub-conscious mind to stay in a positive mindset despite of the situation. Its a way to keep the negative thoughts at bay.

“I am happy.”
“I am confident.”
“I am good at what I do.”
“I am worthy.”
“I am enough.”
“I am healthy.”

These are a few simple examples of affirmations. It can vary on with situations and person of-course. Saying such statements to yourself every day can boost your confidence as well as can make your mind work in extraordinary ways. Its kind of meditating when you say those affirmations to yourself. You can do this early morning or at night before going to sleep. Or anytime that works for you. But do this in a clam state of mind.

Some people do this when they are meditating, saying in mind again and again. But you can say it to yourself out load or by writing it down in a journal everyday. Motive is to say it as many times till it takes to believe it by heart. I usually write it down in my journal everyday in the morning. I list down all the things I am grateful about and then I write all the affirmations I need and say it in my mind.

Honestly I feel it is life changing. After doing it every day you will experience a change in your mood and in your state of mind as well. Those positive affirmations makes you believe in your self and eventually you can see the change in yourself. With each day you will be more confident in achieving your goals. Suddenly you will realize that the things that used to make you nervous or stressed will seem much easier. It is our subconscious mind that starts believing that we can do it and directs our actions in the right direction.

I have been doing this from a long time and I can say it with guarantee that it really does works. Try observing the areas you feel weak or the areas of your life that you want to change. And keeping those areas in focus, and writing down positive reinforcing statements on a piece of paper. Then read those statements to yourself everyday as many times as you can. And then see the change yourself.

Vision Board

Your brain will work tirelessly to achieve the statements you give your subconscious mind. And when those statements are the affirmations and images of your goals, you are destined to achieve them.
— Jack Canfield

 

vision board

                        Vision Board is a pictorial representation of our dreams and goals. 

           Visualization is one of the most helpful tricks to achieve what we want, and with the vision board, we try to remind yourself on daily basis to focus on our goals and grow within it. Obviously to achieve anything one needs to be focused and consistent and vision board helps us doing exactly the same. The first time I came across this was when I got to know about Laws of Attraction. In the book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne it is said that “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”

                             All we need to do is visualize what we want with a positive mindset and we are definitely going to get it. Eventually, we will start noticing changes in yourself. Looking at the board every day will give us the confidence boost and suddenly we will start taking more responsibility towards our dreams. We will take those actions and decisions which previously we thought is not possible at all. We will start noticing opportunities which were already there in front of our eyes we never noticed it.

How to make a vision board?

Everyone has there own style of a vision board, many people take a big cardboard and keep sticking pictures on it whereas few people put pictures on their refrigerator and few people make a journal. The main thing is it should visible to you every day.

Vision board should not only have pictures of what we want, it should also represent how we feel about it as well. Try finding pictures or quotes which clearly represents your ideal wish or desire. Make sure it doesn’t become a clutter, try to be very clear on your goals. If you find a picture of yourself which represents a very happy moment of your life then stick that picture in the center of the board. It will make you feel that happiness every day. You can also create a board of achievements, like when anytime any of your wishes come true of the Vision board remove it and stick it to the accomplished board. This will increase your faith and confidence in yourself.
