Show Outline:

  1. We think between 50-70k thoughts per day. About 90-98% are the same. 70-80% are negative.
  2. What we focus on increases, so focus on the good things, the things you want more of!
    1. When speaking to children, instead of “don’t drop this!” we should say “please carry this and gently set it down on the table. I’m proud of you!”
  3. If we spoke to our friends the way we speak to ourselves, we wouldn’t have any friends.
  4. Cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values. Leon Festinger’s theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency. When inconsistency (dissonance) is experienced, individuals tend to become psychologically uncomfortable and they are motivated to attempt to reduce this dissonance, as well as actively avoiding situations and information which are likely to increase it.
  5. Affirmation statements:
    1. Personal, present: “I am” not “I want” or “I will”
      1. Also good are “I have”, “I know,” “I love”
    2. Focused on what you want: “I am prosperous” “I am enjoying financial freedom” instead of “I am debt free” because the focus is still on the debt rather than the result of not having debt
    3. Use feelings: “I am excited about my life” “I am so happy and grateful for the inner-peace I feel”
    4. Actively, right now, feel the feeling you want to feel when the affirmation is completely true in your life
    5. Support your goals, dreams, what you want in your life
    6. Can be phrased as a question “what is it about me that makes people like to be around me?” “what am I doing to be so successful?”
