Create a list of affirmations containing thanksgiving thoughts. These words of affirmation will build into a list of your daily positive affirmations to start your day in a positive frame of mind.The best way to get you into a positive frame of mind is to have you look at your life now.
Use your second piece of paper to make a list of everything in your life that you are grateful for.
This will become your list of affirmations.
Start by writing, “I am grateful for ...” at the top of the page.
Go ahead and start listing everything in your life that you feel grateful for. The word feel is important. Not sure what you are grateful for?
We are so conditioned in our lives to focus on what is lacking in our lives that we need to build our feelings of gratitude for what we already have.
Let me start by asking you a few questions.
You are reading this page, are you not? This means that you have sight.
If you are not reading this page but are listening to it via voice interface software, you have hearing. You may even be listening to some music while you are browsing the web.
Are you using a mouse or touch pad? Can you feel it in your hand?
What about your two other senses, smell and taste?
You get the idea. You start with the basic stuff, the five senses. Your list of affirmations might start like the example below.
Now, look around you.
Do you have someone special in your life?
Perhaps a pet?
You may also be grateful to have a job, even if it is not your dream job.
Do you have friends?
What about your family?
Do you have a place to live?
Is the computer that you are using yours?
What about feelings? Is there a place that when you visit gives you that happy feeling?
Is there someone that when you are in their company makes you happy?
Do you enjoy movies?
You see, I am encouraging you to think of anything in your life that you may be grateful for. And if there is something missing in your life, go back to your goal setting form and list it as a dream in the first column.
This exercise is about you creating a visual reminder of everything in your life that you are grateful for, no matter how small.
Start paying attention to anything that gives you that feeling of joy. When you feel the joy release your gratitude to the universe. As you will see when you go through the segment on the “Universal Laws of Attraction”, the universe will respond by giving you more and more stuff to be grateful for.
These moments of bliss will grow to hours of extreme happiness then to days and eventually you will became used to only seeing the good around you.
You will be adding more statements when you get to the section on "How to Set Goals". For now keep your List of Affirmations aside next to your Goal Setting Form.
This list will became one of the tools that you will use each morning when you begin the process of materializing your dreams by setting smart goals.
To go to the beginning of the section click on "Personal Goals" in the navigation bar.
I have put together a flowchart which will guide you through the goal setting steps that are covered in various pages of this site.
