|Emile Coué & Power Of Affirmmations |
In the 1870's, French pharmacist Emile Coué made a giant step in personal change when he discovered positive
affirmmations. Dr. Coue's method is so simple that it was not accepted or believed for a long time. However, Dr.
Coue's clinic was achieving recovery rates five times faster than any other similar hospital or clinic in Europe.
Dr. Coué taught each of his patients to say: "Every day, in every way, I'm feeling better and better."
This is a positive affirmation. When it enters your subconscious mind, it is accepted as true. Affirmations work
because of the two principles of the subconscious mind: agreement and compliance. Whatever you say by the conscious
mind, the subconscious mind accepts it as it is. The subconscious mind doesn't know right or wrong, real or unreal.
It stores every bit of information, every command. Affirmations are strong statements or commands from your
conscious mind to your subconscious mind. Affirmmations are accepted faster when you're relaxed.
Remember that affirmations are based on the 3 P's. They must be positive, present tense and personal. An
affirmation such as "I like myself" is positive, present tense and personal. It is also simple. Of course, the
simpler, the better.
Written affirmation technique
To use this technique, take out a notebook, and write out 5 - 10 goals you want to achieve today, this week or this
year. Then close your eyes and take a deep breath (or do a relaxation exercise.) Visualize the goal as if it has
already happened. Speak your goal out loud, with an authoritative command and with positive emotions (calm, happy,
assertive.) Release yourself completely and let it go. Then open your eyes and carry on with your day.
Quick affirmation technique
This technique can be used in any situation. It takes 10 - 30 seconds and is very effective. Professional speakers,
actors and top business people know and understand the importance of this technique. The way it works is simple.
You get by yourself, close your eyes, affirm the ideal outcome, visualize it, emotionalize it and release it. See
and feel the event working out successfully. Then go into the meeting, or whatever situation, with calmness and
confidence. You can use these two simple affirmation techniques right now to program yourself for success.
