How to get what you want – affirmations

Affirmations

Affirmations are a great way to get what you want. They’re also a great way to overcome negativity. I used to use them successfully all the time but for some reason I stopped using them as much.

Changing My Story

Changing my story

It’s been a few weeks since I posted. I’ve had a challenging time. I must admit I’ve been feeling quite low since coming off my anti-depressants. My businesses are not going as well as I would like. My finances are shocking. I’ve had to take a job in a call centre on minimum wage. I have felt like a failure. I have felt as though the hope has run out.

After one particular evening where I’d been telling my ‘woe is me’ story to anyone who would listen, I realised that I need to change my story or as Abraham Hicks would say ‘Get off the subject’.

How to Get What You Want – 30 day challenge

Last year a friend of mine gave me a recording of Earl Nightingale’s “The Strangest Secret”. I listened to it again this morning and it’s inspired me to take Earl’s 30 day challenge. Maybe you’d like to join me. Start by listening to the recording on YouTube by clicking here. Once you’ve listened to it, follow the steps below to get what you want.

1. Write one goal on a piece of card and look at it throughout the day. On one side write your goal and on the other side write “Ask and it is given, seek and you will find, knock and it shall be opened.”

2. Save 10% of everything you receive.

3. Tithe 10% of everything you receive.

4. Only think positive thoughts. Avoid complaining and putting yourself down.

5. Give whatever you’re doing 100% and more.

6. Give to others. Be of service.

7. If you find yourself in a negative mindset, start the 30 days again.

8. Keep your vibration high by dancing, singing, meditating and doing things you love and make you feel good.

9. Let go of attachment to the outcome. Let go of the need to know how it will happen. Trust in a power greater than yourself.

10. Be grateful for all the wonderful things you already have.
