One way to stretch your comfort zone is to bombard your subconscious mind with new thoughts and images - of a big bank account, a trim and healthy body, exciting work, interesting friends, memorable vacations - of all your goals as already complete.

The technique you use to do this is called affirmations. An affirmation is a statement that describes a goal in its already completed state, such as "I am enjoying watching the sunset from my penthouse" or "I am celebrating feeling light and alive at my perfect body weight of 60 KG."

The Nine Guidelines for Creating Effective Affirmations :

To be effective, your affirmations should be constructed using the following nine guidelines :

  1. Start with the words I am :

    The words I am are the two most powerful words in the language. The subconscious taken any sentence that starts with the words I am and interprets it as a command - a directive to make it happen.
  2. Use the present tense :

    Describe what you want as though you already have it, as though it is already accomplished. 

    Wrong: I am going to get a new red Porsche 911 Carrera.
    Right: I am enjoying driving my new red Porsche 911 Carrera.

  3. State it in the positive :

    Affirm what you want, not what you don't want. State your affirmations in the positive. The unconscious does not hear the word no. This means that the statement "Don't slam the door" is heard as "Slam the door." The unconscious thinks in pictures, and the words "Don't slam the door" evoke a picture of slamming the door.

    The phrase "I am no longer afraid of flying" evokes an image of being afraid of flying, while the phrase "I am enjoying the thrill of flying" evokes an image of enjoyment.

    Wrong: I am no longer afraid of flying.
    Right: I am enjoying the thrill of flying.

  4. Keep it brief :

    Think of your affirmation as an advertising jingle. Act as if each word costs Rs. 1 Lakh. It needs to be short enough and memorable enough to be easily remembered.
  5. Make it specific:

    Unclear affirmations produce unclear/ doubtful results. So be as specific as you can to give your subconscious mind a clear picture of what you actually want.

    Wrong: I am driving my new red car.
    Right: I am driving my new red Porsche 911 Carrera.
  6. Include an action word ending with -ing :

    The active verb adds power to the effect by evoking an image of doing it right now.

    Wrong: I express myself openly and honestly.
    Right: I am confidently expressing myself openly and honestly.
  7. Include at least one dynamic emotion or feeling word :

    Include the emotional state you would be feeling if you had already achieved the goal. Some commonly used words are enjoying, joyfully, happily, celebrating, proudly, calmly, peacefully, delighted, enthusiastic, lovingly, secure, serenely, and triumphant.

    Wrong: I am maintaining my perfect body weight of 178 pounds.
    Right: I am feeling agile and great at 178!
  8. Make affirmations for yourself, not others :

    When you are constructing your affirmations, make them describe your behaviour, not the behaviour of others.

    Wrong: I am watching Ishar clean up his room.
    Right: I am effectively communicating my needs and desires to Ishar.
  9. Add or something better :

    When you are affirming getting a specific situation (job, opportunity, vacation), material object (house, car, boat), or relationship (husband, wife, child), always add the words "or something (someone) better."

    Sometimes our criteria for what we want come from our ego or from our limited experience. Sometimes there is someone or something better that is available for us, so let our affirmations include the phrase when it is appropriate.

    Example: I am enjoying living in my beautiful beachfront villa in Goa or somewhere better.
