Feel like celebrating? There have been times in my life that I didn’t. To have more to celebrate in your life, consider programing your brain.
Celebrations are a wonderful part of life as they mark important occasions, milestones and turning points. But there is something to celebrate in each day. If you having difficulty finding something to celebrate each day, try programing your brain with a positive affirmation about daily celebrations.
Your thoughts can bring what you want into your life. Just like a computer can be programed, you have the ability to program your brain when you choose and practice an affirmation.
Affirming positive beliefs
An affirmation is a positive statement of truth. By affirming a truth, we are lifted out of false thinking. Each of us can program or reprogram our own brain and create positive beliefs. So, if you want more to celebrate in your life, find an affirmation to support your getting what you want. By affirming beliefs you want to hold, you create the life you want.
You can consciously choose to say to yourself that there is much to celebrate in your life rather than listening to the often unconscious and self-defeating self-talk you might be practicing. Try to catch yourself in self-defeating self-talk. What do you think to yourself when you are driving to work and the sun is in your eyes. Do you say to yourself, “Good grief I hate driving into the sun. This is awful! Or do you say to yourself, “What a beautiful sunshiny day!”
Are you telling yourself there is something to celebrate or not? You get to choose.
Training your subconscious mind
By choosing to improve your self-talk, you program your subconscious mind, so that over time, your thinking, conscious mind chooses to see the world as you want. By acting as if you already believe them, you program your brain to believe them. All things become possible.
Affirmations are powerful and must be carefully chosen and only then frequently repeated to oneself. For an affirmation to be effective it needs to be in the present tense and have a positive message. To put you in a celebratory frame of mind, it will help to use optimistic statements and to do so with regularity and conviction until you believe the statement at a deep level.
Celebrate every day
Find an affirmation that resonates with you and say it over the next month. Here are some for you to consider:
- It is easy for me to find a way or a reason to be joyful.
- I celebrate today as the gift that it is.
- I am enthusiastic about life.
- I am jazzed with irrepressible joy.
- Every day and every way, there is more and more to celebrate in my life.
Program your brain to celebrate what you want in your life. The more you celebrate your life, the more there will be to celebrate.
