Ecourse to Overcome Addiction long-term (Step 5)

Change Yourself and Change Your Life

Reprogram your mind for greater success

We all have internal dialogue that is constantly going on…

Most of us don’t realize how big of an impact this has on us…

Research from the University of Maryland School of Medicine showed that internal and external dialogue significantly impacts our health. When we have positive self-statements, it improves our mental and physical health, while negative statements does just the opposite.

The truth is that our thoughts, perceptions and our internal communication we have with ourselves, affects and impacts our body, our emotional responses and our confidence…

In 2005, the National Science Foundation published research about human thoughts and how many we typically have in a day. An average person had 12,000 to 60,000…

They found an astounding 80% are negative!

So, for real transformation to occur, you need to start removing negative and self-defeating thoughts, and replacing them with positive ones…

Well how do you do it? You consciously implant images of you succeeding into your mind. This becomes a part of your conscious mind, and allows you to enhance your abilities, skills and attitudes and will allow you to achieve your goals…

This can assist you in really acquiring what you want in life.

When you think of professionals that are experts in their field, you should remember the countless hours of practice it took to get there. And what do they do? They constantly visualize their performance. They see themselves in their mind, succeeding. And therefore, succeed.

You will too.

You may have heard of that story from Zig Ziglar, about that Prisoner of War, who played golf in his mind every day he was in captivity, and then once he was released, he dramatically improved.

This is the power of visualizing.

The sports psychologist Terry Orlick, in his popular book Pursuit of Excellence, stated “Athletes who make the fastest progress and those who ultimately become their best make extensive use of performance imagery.”

He also tells us about a time he worked with a Olympic figure skater that could not get down a particular move or skill. Terry, worked with her mentally, not physically, and then he found she dramatically improved just after two weeks of mental imagery.

Visualization is so important to producing change. If you maintain it long enough for a mental picture to form, it creates an emotional response within you. It becomes more and more real to you. This emotional response and conviction, influences reality. It starts with a mental image, it then generates emotion, it then takes on meaning, and then leads to action.

Visualization and visualizing has such an impact on your mind, that the subconscious and conscious mind can’t even distinguish between you imagining it and actually experiencing it. Scientists know this. When you imagine something, the colors, the tastes the smells, all the characteristics of something, your brain lights up the same way, as if you are actually experiencing it.

This shows you how powerful affirmations and visuailzations can be when used properly…
