When I am trying to overcome a challenging weakness, I use many tools, together, to get the job done.
One of the things I do for myself is to create “affirmation sets” or motivational recordings. I don’t rely on the recordings alone to change my offending behavior, but I will say they are a potent helper in my pursuit of personal growth.
To hear an example, visit my YouTube Channel where I am *beginning* to compile a few of these recordings into an affirmation collection. In this particular recording I challenge myself to trade in my well-reasoned explanations for failure, for a decision to succeed anyway.
I have made recordings for my personal use specific to different challenges I’ve overcome, including quitting smoking, weight-loss, discouragement, anxiety, effective parenting practices, housekeeping avoidance and other forms of procrastination … and many other subjects.
If you’d like to make these recordings for yourself, a free app called ThinkUp makes this easy. If you’d like me to work with you to produce a customized affirmation set designed to support your specific challenges, give me a call at 570.447.0982 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learning to think in a healthy, positive way about our challenges, obstacles and aspirations is a process. With patience and effort you can make your thinking a powerful ingredient of your success.
