Happy Monday! We are getting closer and closer to one of the most celebrated Holidays of the year– Christmas! As well, we are culminating a year. In preparation of 2015 I want to make you aware of the power you have within yourself to accomplish all. Did you know that your present was shaped by your thoughts, words, and actions from your past. I want to bring this to your attention so that you can start focusing and projecting what you want out of your new year. Now I don’t want you to get this confused with New Year’s Resolutions. New Year’s Resolution is a vow that states what you are going to do and/or accomplish in the next year. The word affirm means to positively express validation verbally, as an announcement that one is sure of. Affirmations are statements referencing the present and/or future speaking in the past or present tense. Resolutions talk about what you will do, affirmations state what has been done. In fact research says that 92% of resolutions are not resolved by the end of the year. How do affirmations work? Glad you asked! Affirmations have the ability to program the mind into believing spoken statements. The mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real or fantasy. Have you ever watched a movie, knowing that is was fiction, but at that certain scene you were moved to emotions as if that scene really took place right in your living room. Now before you think I have gotten spooky on you let me explain. Changing your world through affirmations if very biblical.
Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
You see in both of the above scriptures, the power of performance was connected to words being said wrapped in STRONG Faith.
I want to encourage you to start positively speaking into your 2015. Create a list of everything that you want to change and then instead of saying what you want to change, start proclaiming what has changed!
