Genuine wealth is inseparable from genuine health. This year’s 14-Day Business and Money Challenge has brought this back to mind. In light of our unprecedented times, I think we ought to revisit the meaning of genuine health even more.
A while back I wrote the article, Remarkable Wealth Has Everything To Do With Genuine Health. You can read about it here.
We are all prone to working too hard and getting back into the hamster wheel of the American dream so much so that we can lose sight of the more essential things. Sure, we can work all our lives to make up for lost income during COVID-19 but will it truly make us genuinely wealthy? Or happy?
On the other hand, we can become depressed and anxious about the uncertainty that the pandemic has brought upon all of us. The question now is this, are we taking care of ourselves properly? So much is at stake at the expense of our striving for wealth. Most of the time we risk losing our health in exchange for the elusive genuine wealth.
In my own journey towards building my business and juggling family, self-education, and self-care, I came across the powerful use of positive affirmations.
The Millionaire Course by Marc Allen has changed my life, as I have shared in my previous article. Every day for one of the toughest, emotional years of my life, I wrote down my affirmations in a notebook. These notes to myself served as an incremental movement towards health and wellness. My self-examination left no stone unturned; I reviewed every area of my life, came up with the statements that felt true for me, and reflected what I needed and wanted.
The following is one of the daily affirmations I use from Marc Allen’s book,
“In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, all the money I want and need is now coming to me, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all.”
Are you suffering from low self-esteem or self-doubt right now? Are you feeling down or hopeless about the future? Use the power of positive affirmations to get you out of the muck. Affirmations simply work. Once you begin using them, you find they become part of you. You simply find yourself saying these statements as if they have already happened. You are talking to your future self.
But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what the science behind affirmations says,
“…affirmations have been used to successfully treat people with low self-esteem, depression, and other mental health conditions. And they have been shown to stimulate the areas in our brains that make us more likely to effect positive changes in regard to our health.” (Mindtools.com, 2020)
“ Affirmations have helped thousands of people make important changes in their lives. They work because they have the ability to program your mind into accessing and believing the repeated statements and concepts.” (Clinical Hypnotherapy)
There is a host of information on the internet about affirmations and why they are life-changing. Take advantage of this powerful tool and be proactive in taking control of your overall wellness.
As you prepare for incorporating positive affirmations in your self-care routine, find ways to create a special space and devote time to practice this regularly. Ideally, these should be repeated a few times during the day every day.
