The following is a great exercise called The 10 – 10’s that you can do everyday.

Writing your 10 – 10’s is a very simple thing to do. All you have to do each morning or night is write down the 10 things you are grateful for, the 10 things you intend to do each day and the 10 things you delegate to God/ The Universe to assist you with.
When you write them out every day you will see and feel positive shifts in your life. Plus you will have something super positive to reference any time you want that reminds you of how incredible your life really is all the time.

 I have included a few examples of each to give you an idea of how to write them.

Daily Dose – Visualization and Affirmations for Peak Performance
April 30, 2007, 10:49 am
Filed under: affirmations, daily dose, motivation, personal growth

If you can see it, you can be it.

What is the difference in the psychology of a winner and a loser; of one who is stressed out and one who is relaxed; of one who is angry and one who is calm; of one who is worried and one who is confident?  Although it may not be possible to account for every variable, a large portion of the difference is attributed to how one views situations and what one says to themselves.  Many outcomes are predetermined by our beliefs and our beliefs are influenced by our visions and our self talk.

Creative Visualization and Simulation
In examining NASA astronauts who had the “right stuff”, world class athletes, top level CEOs, the best surgeons, and the most accomplished artistic performers, researchers have found some common traits.  It seems that many of these individuals prepare themselves mentally for any challenge they encounter.  The performance in the face of these challenges often seems effortless.  The reason it appears effortless is that these individuals have practiced the skill over and over in their mind hundreds of times.  Winners are masters of the art of simulation.  They have seen themselves perform flawlessly and that becomes their self fulfilling prophecy.  As Dennis Waitely puts it, “Winners say, ‘Of course I can do it!  I’ve practiced it mentally a thousand times.’  Losers say, ‘How can you expect me to do it?  I don’t know how!'”

Watch a world class down hill skier prior to a big race and you will see them close their eyes and ski the course in their mind.  On the absolute edge of their skis, they are going faster than anyone has dared to go.  Watch the Olympic gymnast before the big event.  They see themselves perform the most difficult maneuvers without a miss.  Dismounting perfectly, they see themselves “stick it” and get the perfect 10.  It is no different for the experienced sales person who negotiates the best contract or the speaker who gives the most motivational presentation.  High level performers practice physically and visually over and over again.  It was Thomas Jefferson who said, “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it”.

Many commercial relaxation tapes use examples of guided imagery to get people to relax.  If one can create a visual scene of relaxation the body will adjust accordingly.  Visualization for relaxation works best when individuals are able to create their own relaxing scenes.  Not everyone is relaxed by floating on waves or in the clouds.  These images can be very stressful for some.  If you want to use visualization for relaxation, imagine yourself being in the most relaxing environment you have ever been in.  Real or imagined recreate that special place as vividly as possible.

The power of visualization is so strong that is has been found to influence our physiology at a microbiological level.  Cancer patients taught to practice visualization of tumors shrinking and cancer cells dying as an adjunct to chemotherapy, got well at a significantly higher rate than a control group receiving only chemotherapy.  The literature is full of examples of controlled studies where visualization has been used to enhance both physiology and performance.

Positive Affirmations
It is difficult if not impossible to visualize excellent performance if your self talk is negative.  The mind will believe what you tell it.  It is important to combine visualization exercises with positive affirmations.  Poor performers and those with a negative self image tend to be self depreciating.  If you tell yourself you can not do something you will be very surprised if you are successful and rightly so.
It can be very difficult to change negative self talk if this is part of your personality, part of who you are.  Often when people try to change they end up putting themselves down even more each time they catch themselves saying something negative.  For example, “I should have done better on that exam, I am so dumb sometimes.  There I go criticizing myself again, I’m such a loser”.   Rather than trying to eliminate negative self talk, try and reduce it by practicing saying positive things to yourself.  This is not easy and often people will feel silly and phony using affirmations (i.e., Stuart Smalley from SNL, “You’re good enough, you’re smart enough and gosh darn it people like you”).  If someone has spent their whole life listening to negative scripts, it is unlikely that they will immediately believe the positive statements they make.  It takes time and practice.

Below are some guidelines and suggestions for the use of visualization and affirmations.
Phrase affirmations using the first person singular.  Take ownership of the statement.  You can not control others only yourself.  For example, “I am…”, “I can…”

Phrase affirmations in the present tense when possible.  You can not change the past.  The future is too unpredictable to control.
Phrase affirmations in the most positive way possible.  Avoid the use of words like “no”, “don’t”, and “not” in your affirmations.  This is very important because your brain is not capable of visualizing a negative action.  The right side of your brain is predominately visual, the left side is logical and literal.  In many ways they do not communicate very well.  If you are practicing self-hypnosis all suggestions should be positive.  To illustrate this ask someone to do exactly as you say, then tell them to close their eyes and not think about what their hands are doing.  If you ask them, they will tell you that  when you asked them not to think of their hands, they thought of their hands.  Your visual brain can not understand the word not.  Its like when you are riding a bike and you tell yourself not to hit a rock in the road.  You will inevitably run right over the rock because that is the picture you have created for your brain and your brain controls your muscles.

Sport psychologist have understood this for some time and there are lots of sports examples.  Have you ever been in  the classic situation playing softball or baseball?  Its the last inning, your team is losing, the bases are loaded, there are two outs, with you up at bat and two strikes.  If under these circumstances you say to yourself, “don’t strike out”, that is probably what will happen.  What the best batters will do is visualize what part of the field they are going to hit the ball to.  There is no doubt that they are going to hit it, it is a matter of where they will hit it.
If you are taking an exam, or preparing to give a speech, or going for job interview, or asking someone for a date, if you say, “don’t get stressed out”, you are creating a picture of someone who is stressed out.  If you say, “I feel calm and relaxed, I am confident and alert” then you are creating an image of someone who is relaxed and confident.

The implications of this can be profound.  If you are a parent, teacher, administrator or leader of any type, tell people what you want them to do.  Don’t tell them what you don’t want them to do.

Make affirmations short, simple and clear.  Brevity furthers.  Long complex statements are more difficult to internalize.
Use as many senses as possible in affirmations and visualizations.  Verbalize statements out loud after writing them down.  Better yet watch yours and listen to yourself say these statements while standing in front of a mirror.  When you visualize your performance, recreate as much of the scene as possible to create an accurate simulation.  Imagine what it sounds like, what it feels like, smells like, etc….
Make affirmations and visualizations emotional.  Imagine what it will feel like to be happy, successful, powerful, self-assured.  Visualize yourself experiencing these emotions.  At the same time work to eliminate statements of negative emotions from your life (e.g., I’m tired, I’m sad/depressed, I’m lonely, I’m bored, I’m overwhelmed, etc…).
In summary, create and image of someone you want to become and then continue to focus on that image.  Figure out what you want to be able to say about yourself and then start saying it.

following my bliss and achieving vibrational harmony with my desire. I do what feels
good.
Contrasting experiences will give birth to yet another desire, and then I will turn
my full attention to my new desire, using my powers of imagination and
concentration. Until, by paying attention to the way I feel, I have honed this
desire into a blended Energy so that it resonates through every fiber of my being,
until the desire that I say with my mouth, I feel with my being. I will turn my
attention to it, and I will achieve vibrational harmony with it—and I will become
one with it, and the universal forces will yield it to me.

Daily Dose
April 17, 2007, 11:27 pm
Filed under: affirmations, daily dose, personal growth, the collective

Step 1: See the world as an abundant, providing, friendly place. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. When you see the world as abundant and friendly, your intentions are genuine possibilities. They will, in fact, become a certainty, because your world will be experienced from the higher frequencies. In this first step, you’re receptive to a world that provides rather than restricts. You’ll see a world that wants you to be successful and abundant, rather than one that conspires against you.

Step 2: Affirm: I attract success and abundance into my life because that is who I am. This puts you into vibratory harmony with your Source. Your goal is to eliminate any distance between what you desire and that from which you pull it into your life. Abundance and success aren’t out there waiting to show up for you. You are already it, and the Source can only provide you with what it is, and, consequently, what you are already.

Step 3: Stay in an attitude of allowing. Resistance is disharmony between your desire for abundance and your beliefs about your ability or unworthiness. Allowing means a perfect alignment. An attitude of allowing means that you ignore efforts by others to dissuade you. It also means that you don’t rely on your pervious ego-oriented beliefs about abundance being a part of or not a part of your life. In an attitude of allowing, all resistance in the form of thoughts of negativity or doubt are replaced with simply knowing that you and your Source are one and the same. Picture the abundance you desire freely flowing directly to you. Refuse to do anything or have any thought that compromises your alignment with Source.

Step 4: Use your present moments to activate thoughts that are in harmony with the seven faces of intention [creativity, kindness, love, beauty, expansion, abundance, and peaceful receptivity]. The key phrase here is present moments. Notice right now, in this moment, if you’re thinking that it’s hopeless at this stage of your life to change the thoughts that comprise your belief system. Do you defeat yourself with thoughts of having had such a long life practicing affirmations of scarcity and creating resistance to your success and abundance that you don’t have enough time left to counterbalance the thoughts that comprise your belief system?
Make the choice to let go of that lifetime of beliefs, and begin activating thoughts rights now that allow you to feel good. Say I want to feel good whenever anyone tries to convince you that your desires are futile. Say I want to feel good when you’re tempted to return to low energy thoughts of disharmony with intention. Eventually your present moments will activate thoughts that make you feel good, and this is an indicator that you’re reconnecting to intention. Wanting to feel good is synonymous with wanting to feel God. Remember, “God is good, and all that God created was good.”

Step 5: Initiate actions that support your feelings of abundance and success. Here, the key word is actions. I’ve been calling this acting as if or thinking from the end and acting that way. Put your body into a gear that pushes you toward abundance and feeling successful. Act on those passionate emotions as if the abundance and success you seek is already here. Speak to strangers with passion in your voice. Answer the telephone in an inspired way. Do a job interview from the place of confidence and joy. Read the books that mysteriously show up, and pay close attention to conversation that seem to indicate you’re being called to something new.

Step 6: Remember that your prosperity and success will benefit others, and that no one lacks abundance because you’ve opted for it. The supply is unlimited. The more you partake of the universal generosity, the more you’ll have to share with others. In writing this book, wonderful abundance has flowed into my life in many ways. But even more significantly, book editors and graphic designers, the truck drivers who deliver the book, the auto workers who build the trucks, the farmers who feed the auto workers, and bookstore clerks. all receive abundance because I’ve followed my bliss and have written this book.

Step 7: Monitor your emotions as a guidance system for your connection to the universal mind of intention. Strong emotions such as passion and bliss are indications that you’re connected to Spirit, or inspired, if you will. When you’re inspired, you activate dormant forces, and the abundance you seek in any form comes streaming into your life. When you’re experiencing low-energy emotions of rage, anger, hatred, anxiety, despair, and the like, that’s a clue that while your desires may be strong, they’re completely out of sync with the field of intention. Remind yourself in these moments that you want to feel good, and see if you can activate a thought that supports your feeling good.

Step 8: Become as generous to the world with your abundance as the field of intention is to you. Don’t stop the flow of abundant energy by hoarding or owning what you receive. Keep it moving. Use your prosperity in the service of others, and for causes greater than your ego. The more you practice detachment, the more you’ll stay in vibratory harmony with the all-giving Source of everything.

Step 9: Devote the necessary time to meditate on the Spirit within as the source of your success and abundance. There’s no substitute for the practice of meditation. This is particularly relevant with abundance. You must have an understanding that your consciousness of the presence is your supply. By repeating the sound that is in the name of God as a mantra, you’re using a technique for manifesting as ancient as recorded history. I am particularly drawn to the form of meditation called Japa. I know it works.

Step 10: Develop an attitude of gratitude for all that manifests into your life. Be thankful and filled with awe and appreciation, even if what you desire hasn’t arrived yet. Even the darkest days of your life are to be looked on with gratitude. Everything coming from Source is on purpose. Be thankful while empowering your reconnection to that form from which you and everything else originated.
