The Power of Positive Thinking | Ayodeji Awosika
Have you grabbed your copy of my new book, Real Help, yet?
Check it out here –
Books 1 & 2:
While my life is built on a bedrock of work - writing 3–4 hours a day for a half-decade, networking, learning new skills - I have a big ol bag of tricks to create the life I want:
I write affirmations, daily.
I meditate, daily.
I've been journaling heavily for the past few years.
I have a document with goals ranging from the next 90 days to the next 25 years.
I keep a daily gratitude list.
Although I don't constantly consume self-help like I used to, I still read, watch videos, and listen to uplifting podcasts.
Now, why do I do all of these routines that may or may not work?
Simple, I *have to.*
When you're trying to reach a major goal and venture roads less traveled, you have to deal with a lot of B.S.
First, the society you live in wants nothing more than to make you feel weak, helpless, and outraged. And the arbiters of outrage pornography have mastered the craft of tickling your lizard brain and activating your amygdala on command.
Second, you have to deal with your own inner-critic - who takes the form of your own self-talk and also manifests itself in other people, the media, environments, etc.
Last, the literal steps you need to take to accomplish a dream are so daunting that they can quite easily break you mentally.
So, I use positive thinking to essentially brainwash myself.
I meditate because I know my monkey brian will run wild if I don't. I write affirmations to focus on what I do want as opposed to what I don't want.
My goals keep me grounded and focused - I've barely looked at the large 25-year goals document I wrote a while back, but I don't need to. I know I'm guided by it and living accordingly.
Positivity techniques serve as a fortress against the negativity of the world and they help re-wire the way you think and behave.
