Episode 22: August Affirmations and The Motivation Manifesto
Affirmations are specific statements used to help you visualize and believe in what you are setting out to do. Today I am sharing my brief story of affirmations and the new book I’m reading The Motivation Manifesto here on the View 112 Podcast.
I've spent a lot of time talking about goal setting and quarterly reviews. I've also been reading a lot about affirmations so I've decided to give them a try. In the past, I've used something similar to affirmations such as mantras while running or working out to encourage myself past the mental hurdles that pop up. I also recently listened to an episode of The Tim Ferris Show in which Seth Godin shares his experience with affirmations. His testimonial convinced me further to give it a whirl.
I will be saying these affirmations out loud 3 times per day (I've set a reminder on my iPhone) and writing them down once per day. On this podcast I share the whys behind my August affirmations:
I am worthy of all God has for me.
I will do what it takes to graduate in 2018
I will build a lucrative writing career and advance professionally.
My body is a powerful temple and I will take care of it.
I will give and receive love beyond my wildest dreams
As a nice compliment to this practice, I just picked up The Motivation Manifesto from Brendon Burchard. In this book, Burchard shares his 9 Declarations and I find them to be pretty powerful. I share them as well. Books come into our lives in different seasons and can be used for many different reasons. Again, I think this book will be a great compliment to the work I'm doing with affirmations. Hope you enjoy this episode.
