Can you train your brain? According to science, absolutely! One of the things I’m constantly reminding my clients, my friends, and my family of is that “every time you speak you are creating something.”
Reinforcement in any manner is a powerful tool for changing yourself. Therefore, it follows that incorporating daily success mantras will help you succeed. The brain reacts to constant stimuli and by having a set of success mantras on a daily basis, you will train your brain.
Mantras, or what many would refer to as affirmations, are sayings or phrases that you repeat to yourself so that they become part of you. You can say them during meditation or throughout your day. But you want to say them out loud. This is because you use more of your senses when doing so. If you simply repeat them inside your head, your ears won’t hear them, and your mouth won’t speak them. By engaging more of your senses, your brain will capture and process them quicker.
This type of positive self-reinforcement works. People often try them for a couple of days or weeks and then pass them off as not working. It takes about 30 days for them to start sinking in. Once they begin working, continue with them daily for even better results.
Some people like to use the same set of mantras each day while others will use one success mantra and change it every day for the 30-day period. You may also find a different set that works better for you. How you decide to do it is not as important as being consistent. That is the key to making this work.
You will find people who don’t believe in this and will think you are crazy for trying it. This could be members of your family, friends, coworkers, or even members of online communities. Don’t let them control you. Using mantras is something that can help your life. You will have the last laugh. One thing you can say to the naysayers is how can saying mantras repeatedly hurt?
Even if they don’t work, they certainly won’t harm anybody by using them.
You will find plenty of resources online if you are stuck trying to come up with mantras to use. Simply do a search on success mantras and use whatever time frame you feel you want to include. Daily is best, but as long as you are consistent, you could make every other day work or even weekly. Any more than that, though, and you probably will lose the effectiveness of the mantras. You want to train your brain, and that requires frequent affirmations and repetition.
I have personally decided to focus aggressively on Faith, Family, and Finances. My personal daily mantra has become:
“I will not waiver at the promises of God through unbelief, but I will remain strong in my faith as I give glory unto God. My family is a source of continued joy, there is always peace and harmony in my home and I always respond to my husband James and children Jacquelynne, Jaymes and Justin with patience and love. I am worthy of making more money, I am open to all the wealth life has to offer me, I am debt-free, a generous giver, and money and wealth constantly and consistently flows to me daily.”
So, what will your mantra be for 2018? What does your heart desire? Let’s create it with our words!
Cheers to a Happy New Year!
