I get things done – in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

What does this really mean?

This is an affirmation. You are telling yourself (and ultimately programming your conscious and subconscious mind) that you “get things done – in the most effective and efficient manner possible”.

Why is this so?

This blog and my daily Notes-to-Self posts on Instagram and Twitter are all about using the right words to talk to yourself. Whatever it is you are saying to yourself and whatever it is you are thinking about is ultimately what you become. Subsequently, your life becomes a reflection of what’s going on in your mind. This is more than just positive thinking and setting goals and working towards them – it’s about the step that comes before all of that – it’s about creating positive change within yourself before you set out to do anything else. This kind of change is not only effective but it lasts a lifetime.

In the second chapter of the book, “What to Say When You Are Talking to Your Self”, author Shad Helmstetter addresses the self-help phenomenon and its teachings of the “keys to success”. He points out why the solutions of these self-help books are temporary and why only a small percentage of the millions who have bought these books really achieve the kind of “success” that is promised. After a while, these books that promise to change your life become just another book on the shelf, collecting dust.

I for one was one of those people! I am a self-proclaimed self-help junkie. Whenever I go into a bookshop, or shop for books online, I somehow always gravitate towards the self-help section. I have hundreds of these books and yet it took me years to create my ideal life – and of course it is still a work in progress.

Why do you think that is? What is the point/key that these books haven’t addressed? Why is it that when we try to apply the teachings of these books, we last for a month or so (feeling renewed and motivated) and then go back to our old habits?

The answer is, that before we can create any positive change in our life, we must first create change from within, and as I mentioned before – it is the mind that dictates who we are and what life we have. This is the whole point behind the creation of Notes-to-Self – using words to reprogram your mind to create the life YOU want. It goes beyond positive thinking – because the results of positive thinking are temporary. It’s more like reprogramming your mind and creating a shift in your mind to change its perspective of you and of life. Old habits that are a result of old-programming and old beliefs can and will only be changed by constant positive self talk and repetition.

How can I apply this information to get the information I want?

Decide what kind of person you want to be. Smart, savvy, social, efficient, confident, healthy etc. YOU DECIDE who you want to be and what kind of person you want to be. I created the affirmation, “I get things done – in the most effective and efficient manner possible”, to counteract my old programming/ beliefs that were the contrary to this. My old programming was really starting to get in the way of carrying out my goals/ dreams!

You can do it too… create affirmations that are in line with the person you want to be and the life you want to live. Through constant repetition and application of these affirmations, they will eventually become who YOU are, as they will be imprinted into your subconscious and will come as second nature to you.Image

I am worthy

I am worthy

What does this really mean?

It is the knowledge and belief that you are worthy of what you want and need.

Why is this so?

Think of it like this – believing that you are worthy of something is a prerequisite of actually receiving it. This is something that seems very basic – but believe me, the results are powerful and tangible.

Life works in funny ways – but does this mean that it works in mysterious ways? I think not! Look around you. Some people have it all – and if they want something else, they seem to attract with ease and success. Others aren’t so lucky. They always seem to be struggling for things but never really receive them, and if they do ever receive – it would have been way overdue.

Does this mean that those who receive are more deserving than those who don’t? Not really, and most of the time, it’s actually the contrary. The main difference is – those who receive believe they are worthy, those who don’t believe they are not.

How can I apply this information to get the results I want?

This is a simple task – but if your belief is deeply ingrained in your subconscious it may take a lot of time and effort on your part to change it. But change will happen and the results will be magical. Please know that no one can make that change except for you.

First – start of by thinking about what you really want and need. Be as specific or as general as you want – but know that you will receive exactly what you asked for. Is it to be surrounded by love? To be happy in general? To be respect? To get a promotion? A car? Good, loyal, supportive friends? A great partner? All of the above? None of the above?

Second – begin by stating, “I am worthy of receiving ______”. Say it, write it, sing it – I don’t care – just do whatever it takes to get rid of that little voice coming out of your subconscious that is saying otherwise. If you find that your body and mind do not agree with what you are saying (that is your subconscious talking by the way), back up what you are saying by listing all the reasons of why you are worthy of receiving X and just keep replaying them in your head. Also, I find that writing things down is a very powerful tool – it organizes your thoughts, brings them to life and makes them concrete. So do that when you have the time. Actually… find the time!

Once your mind and body accept the fact that you are worthy – receiving will be quick, natural and easy.

Third – receive and enjoy!
