We believe what we tell ourselves, and the outcome follows. When we say and think positive things, we naturally start to believe them! That’s how positive affirmations work to change our lives for the better!
After I lost my father when I was 22 years old, I read a book called, “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy. This made a huge change in my life as I started to become more positive by saying positive affirmations daily.
I then used this tool with my sons when they were 3 and 5 years old. My kids would repeat positive affirmations, as I would say them. While we were at the playground one afternoon, I went over to help my older son climb the monkey bars. As I approached him, he stopped me by saying, "No, Mom, I don't need you - I can do anything I put my mind to!" At that moment, I knew I was on to something! The Positive Affirmations that we had been saying every night, were actually changing his thinking patterns, allowing him to be more confident, and self-assured! Both children started to gain more confidence and show a change in their mindset.
After positive affirmations had had such a tremendous effect on my life, and then my sons’ lives, I knew that I wanted to do something with them to help others as well.
It has been said that to change your mental attitude, you should say Positive Affirmations before you go to sleep and when you wake up…and what better way than to have them right on your Pillowcase!
The subconscious mind believes whatever you tell it, so by repeating Positive Affirmations daily, you are conditioning your sub-conscious mind to believe these positive thoughts. This powerful positive thinking that occurs can truly start to transform your life, by affecting your habits, behavior, mental attitude and reactions, and even reshape your external life.
Positive thoughts, words and attitude, create positive and happy feelings, moods and behaviors. Creating this positive mindset helps promote constructive changes in all aspects of your life making them happier, brighter and more successful!
Keeping it Positive’s goal is for everyone to have a Positive Affirmation Pillowcase to bring optimism into their lives, allowing all children and adults to know that “YOU CAN DO ANTYHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO!”
