If you love positive affirmations, here’s an even more powerful affirmation method – which will truly change the way you think – because it gets to the root of your negativity.
A lot of people love to do affirmations first thing in the morning – to keep themselves feeling peppy and positive.
I myself have some favorite go-to affirmations which I love.
But…I gotta say, sometimes I’ve noticed that affirmations just don’t work.
Especially if I’m feeling particularly curmudgeon-y – which is when I need the mental and emotional support the most.
My clients have told me it happens for them a lot.
Often when you’re in a highly negative state, then fluffy, one-size-fits-all affirmations will simply feel like false hype.
You’ll have trouble absorbing the positivity into your thought system.
I recommend a new more Powerful Affirmation -which I call “Antidote Thought Therapy” – the thought breakfast of champions!
“Antidote Thought Therapy” is a very powerful because it’s about finding and repeating BELIEVABLE FACTS – which logically counteract the negativity in your subconscious and conscious minds.
“Antidote Thought Therapy” is a thought system based in logic and personalization – as well as positivity.
Instead of repeating a general positive affirmation, you take 5 to 10 minutes to write out a personalized list of “Antidote Thoughts” – a range of factual reasons for you to logically prove to yourself that you should be feeling happy, loved and successful.
These “Antidote Thoughts” then logically disprove your negative thinking.
Let’s say you wake up feeling negative – with a loop of self-doubting thoughts about how you’re gonna mess up a big client meeting.
These Antidote Thoughts are a highly Powerful Affirmation system – because they get to the root of your negative thinking.
After repeating Antidote Thoughts, you should feel a shift in your energy, mood and confidence.
In fact, Antidote Thoughts should change the way you think even more powerfully than general positive affirmations – because you’ve chosen to unknot the root of your negative beliefs.
