We live our life sometimes within a “comfort zone” of our creation. This “comfort zone” is made up of beliefs and thoughts that limit oneself and negative images about self that stop even our best of intentions of changing or transforming our life. Our “comfort zone”, as Canfield says, is a prison we live in.
We can change our “comfort zone” by doing a variety of things. One way
is by using positive affirmations and self talk. A second way is by
creating new and powerful internal images of what you want. And third,
we can promote change by changing your behavior.
It is important to get that we are never stuck, that we can never
change. Our limiting thoughts about ourselves and reality create an
internal image which in turn governs our behavior that reinforces our
thoughts and beliefs especially about oneself.
We need to stop complaining about a negative situation that we are in,
as the focus of the complaining continues to reinforce the negative
experience hense continuing to create what it is that we say we don’t
want. Instead of continuing to focus on what you don’t want, it is
important to focus on what you do want, on the new reality that you want to experience.
Our self image regulates our level of performance. When we do or
accomplish things in life we may reach a point when the accomplishments
are starting to go outside the parameters of our self image. Our self
image will put limits upon that which we will accomplish or achieve. We
tend to not go outside our “comfort zone” of achieving, that which is
determined by our self image.
Positive affirmations are very powerful in promoting change. Canfield
makes several suggestions with respect to how to create them. Start with the words “I am.” Use present tense. State in the positive, affirm what you want, as if you have it. Keep it brief. Keep it specific. Include an action word ending in ing. Include a feeling or emotion. Make the affirmation about you, not someone else. Add or something better.
Canfield also talks about creating an affirmation from inside a
visualization, from within a visualization of what it is you want to
create for yourself. Once created, review your affirmations in the
morning, at noon and in the evening, before bed. Read each affirmation
out loud. Put your affirmations on 3 x 5 cards. Record your affirmations and listen to them while you work or sleep.
