Today's positive affirmation !


Hi all,

Change your thoughts change your life !!..Its easy however it takes time , need persistence .Our subconscious mind takes time to accept the things.
Even Big book says we have to make prayers in positive direction.Never make a affirmation I don't like ,I don't do or I don't want or never use negative words like resentment,fear,dislikes etc.
Example :- I don't drink alcohol .( Negative pattern ). I stay sober.(Positive pattern)
.

Self-affirmation—thinking positively about oneself has been long believed to be beneficial. I know I feel better when I focus on anything positive—especially those aspects of myself.

It is not the situation that is the most important factor, but our response to it that determines how our body is impacted by the experience.

Napoleon Hill in his famous book Think and Grow Rich speaks about positive affirmations. When Louise Hayes had written a book about positive affirmations in the 1970’s, they became popular. And nowadays you can see positive affirmations all over the internet on Facebook, Instagram or Twiter posts. As everyone says, you need to repeat those positive affirmations, and they will change your life.

Lets make few affirmations today !

I surrender my life to the existence /God.
I am alive and hopeful.
I live peacefully today.
I accept the things I cant change.
I have courage to change the things.
I eat and drink healthy diets.
I take care of my body and soul.
I am recovering day by day.
I accept the reality.
I am a healer myself.
I love my family.
I create thoughts that make me feel good.
I stay sober , no matter what.
I have a sober brain that instructs my body perfectly.
I am paying back my debts without regret.
My finance is getting better.
My relationship is getting better day by day,
I am healer myself.
I take the responsibility of my life.

You folks please add you own here !!!
take care !!!!!!!!!!!!

I have these stuck to my fridge that I see many times a day to keep me positive and on the right path. I used to be quick to react and not always in a positive way, looking at others defects rather than my own, tell myself negative things like “I am not good enough” I am unloveable”, sticking in my comfort zone and not growing and believed that if I felt bad it would be like that forever, and if something wasn’t perfect it or I was a failure so these things remind me daily what I need to keep on top of. It’s much easier nowadays at a year sober but I needed the constant reminders early on x

- Progress not perfection
- Embrace the space between action and reaction
- Nothing is permanent
- Respond not react
- What story are you telling yourself?
- Change leads to growth
- Everything passes
- Don’t do an inventory on others

Thank you for this!

I was doing some hideously negative affirmations (negations?) to myself last night. I was tired, confused, sad, and since there was no one around to abuse, I guess myself was the default target. Something told me, "Stop. Get some sleep. See how things look in the morning."

That's kind of where I'm at now. None of these decisions in front of me is urgent or permanent. But I usually respond out of resentment or loneliness. But then it's been a long time since I had even 30 days sober. So I thought, "Let's put this stuff on the shelf for a couple more weeks and look at it again with new eyes." That actually helped me see 30 days as more doable! It's not this distant, abstract goal. I gotta get 30 days (or more) to get that additional clarity, to be able to come back to my journal and compare notes. Everything just felt more concrete and possible.

I enjoy sobriety.
Life is better sober.
My health is great!

Affirmations work. For me, telling myself, "I do not drink" is important because once I get that program running, everything else is easier.

Hi IAMNIOTTHAT GUY


I think it will get best result if we say I stay sober rather than I don't drink.
Our mind massively works on picture and image.
Lets visualise the word DRINK and SOBER !!...how do we feel ?.Which image gives us more positive image ??
But if it works for you and working that's a matter !! Take care !

I totally get you, Paulsandy, but in situations where other people are drinking, I find it helpful to simply remind myself that I am a non-drinker. It's just not something I do, not even a possibility. Of course I try to avoid those situations, but it's not possible all the time.

Man, I feel so good today! I love waking up and feeling good!

The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act. If you want to change the way you act, start by changing the way you think. Don’t conform, transform!

Welcome to the human race, where we all experience adversity, frustration and anxiety. We don't get addicted to a substance that we have not learned does something for us.

We all experience specific circumstances in life that become intolerable and overwhelming for us. It is these specific circumstances that cause us to feel helpless and trapped and we escape the trap with drugs and alcohol. We regain control of our feelings with a quick fix or mood changer of chemicals. This is a bad decision but works in the short term. Now it's time to change our thinking and change our life. Regain control of our helpless trapped emotions by replacing that helpless trapped, powerless feeling with some other empowering value or behavior. This is hard to do when you are still in physical withdrawal. Get help from withdrawal. Consider new values and purpose in our lives. Pray about it, think about, choose a better life.

I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions. —Stephen Covey

Agreed !!!
We can take control of mind changing the direction of our thoughts .Its can be hard but possible .Yes physical withdraw must be treated first by the help of Physician and look after our thoughts.I made an acronym of the encouraging thoughts and remind me hundred times a day until it go into subconscious.I am determined to repeat them and it's helping when I feel low.
Folks thanks for sharing --Take care
