Why your personal affirmations may not be working, and a mindset hack to fix it [PERISCOPE]
This one’s about personal affirmations.
You know, the “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and Doggone it! People like me!” things people are being encouraged to say to themselves each morning.
Don’t get me wrong, I think personal affirmations are a powerful way to start the day
But the way they are created and practiced today are not working.
And there’s one good reason why those sorts of personal affirmations don’t work…
Today’s personal affirmations often aren’t TRUE!
It’s one thing to think positively about yourself, it’s another to make stuff up!
I’m not good enough or smart enough?
And people really don’t like me?
OK, let me back off… JUST A BIT… some of those things may be true.
But people who practice affirmations in this way typically do just “make things up” based on what they want to be true of them and do very little to assess whether those things are true, or what they can do to help make them become true.
I’ve heard the most self-centered, step-on-others-on-the-way-up person “affirm” that they are generous – all in the name of “personal affirmations.”
If personal affirmations are going to work it’s vital that they are true, because truth is what’s at the root of a healthy, strong mindset.
In this session I chat about:
- those non-working personal affirmations
- how they relate to the Christian concept of “quiet time” or “daily devotions”
- and the mindset hack that can help you think differently about personal affirmations and do it the RIGHT way to empower your days.
