To my way of thinking, programming your mind for success is critically important. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “We become what we think about all day long.” Everything we are right now in life is the result of everything we have thought to this point in time. Everything we will ever become will come as a result of the thoughts we hold in our conscious minds on a continuous basis.
One of the biggest obstacles to success in the lives of most people is their tendency to hold on to past failures and mistakes. To continue growing, we must let go of the past. It becomes important to develop new habit patterns of thinking, and, especially when it comes to the thoughts we hold concerning ourselves. In order to develop these new habits, we must continuously think, talk and act in a manner consistent with the person we want to be. This process of personal growth can be accelerated by several methods. The method I find the most powerful, effective and permanent is affirmation. Affirmations are personal, present tense and positive statements about you that say “yes” to your potential and possibilities. Statements like “I like myself”, “I am responsible”, “I can do it” repeated over and over with belief and enthusiasm drives them deep into the subconscious and can change your life forever!
This powerful technique, I call, “telling the truth in advance” will move you ahead faster than any other method I know of. It has never ceased to amaze me how quickly positive changes come about once we assume full control over our thought and program our minds for success.
