Self-Confidence and Positive Attitude is a guided affirmation activity that motivates and inspires you to achieve your desires. Affirmations also remind you of what is important to you in your life right now. It is essential always to choose our words wisely, but especially crucial when we are doing affirmations. Our words are taken literally by our minds, more specifically by our subconscious mind. The subconscious mind takes our thoughts and words, memorizes and stores them as permanent habits. The subconscious mind also makes our intentions and desires real. So, we want to choose positive words and create positive intentions so that we can achieve better results in all areas of our lives.
Affirmations are simply positive statements that create transformation, self-improvement, positive attitude when they are consistently used. With affirmations, you merely state out loud what your goals and intentions are in becoming a positive person with positive results. Then, your subconscious mind memorizes and stores these positive words, thoughts, and emotions. Throughout the day, the subconscious mind will work to make such positive intentions possible and happen for you. Affirmations can also serve as inspiration as well as simple reminders. This way, they bring focus and self-discipline on goals throughout the day.
Position: For affirmations, we recommend standing up because it keeps you in a “motivated” and “excited” state. You can also do affirmations sitting down. For longer guided affirmations, you will be sitting down. Sit upright/straight on your chair with your feet touching the ground uncrossed, or limbs crossed (Indian style) on the floor. You can grab your headphones if you have them. If not, simply play these guided affirmations on your electronic device so that you can get the best sound system.
Gentle reminder: This is a guided affirmations activity using audio and video. You do not need to print or read the following instructions. The steps to this activity are provided to you in written form, only should you wish to read through them voluntarily. In other words, reading the following activity instructions and steps are optional. They are written in ‘casual’ and ‘conversation’ language in which it was recorded.
Thank you for choosing this activity for guided affirmations for raising self-confidence and cultivating a positive attitude in your life now. Affirmations are used to reprogram our subconscious mind, to encourage us to believe certain things about ourselves or about the world and our place within it. They are also used to help us create the reality we want to see in ourselves and in our lives.
Affirmations help become more in tune with your thoughts and how you feel about yourself. Affirmations help you tap into your subconscious mind and transform all your unhealthy habits. They allow you to have a clearer mind, bring focus, and will enable you to practice self-discipline so that you can have more joyful experiences in life.
