After a recent seminar in Calabasas, California, I stopped at a beautiful park right off Highway 101.
Calabasas is about 15 miles west of the San Fernando Valley and northwest of Los Angeles.
There was a road next to the park which led up a hill. Over that hill was the Calabasas Landfill. In the greater Los Angeles area there are about a dozen landfills where some 16,000 tons of non-hazardous waste is disposed of every day of the year.
My message here is the correlation between the landfill over that hill in Calabasas and the negative thoughts that we allow to come into our minds in the form of mental garbage.
It’s simply amazing. I read a statistic that kids, by the time they’re four or five, have heard the word “No” thousands of times. And that has been imbedded in their subconscious minds.
So, if things don’t work well for us, we imbed that thought in our subconscious mind. When we think negative thoughts, we’re imbedding those thoughts in the form of garbage into our subconscious mind.
I’m thinking maybe it’s time to clear out the garbage from our brains. Because, the more trash and the more garbage and the more negative thoughts we have in our brains, the less we’re going to accomplish what we want to accomplish.
That is the problem. Now let me give you the solution.
In order to get rid of some of the garbage in the brain, it’s like a computer. What you put in is what you get out. Maybe you’ve heard the term: GIGO – garbage in, garbage out.
So, if you’ve got a bunch of garbage in the form of negative thoughts in your brain, then here’s what we need to do. We need to write down some positive affirmations that can override, just like a computer program, some of that negative garbage that you’ve got in your brain.
So, here are some positive affirmations: If you don’t have much confidence, then write down the following affirmation: I am a confident person.
Whether you believe it or not is immaterial. Just put it on the bed stand and read it out loud the first thing every morning and the last thing every night.
If you don’t believe that you’re a good manager with money, if you’ve gotten into debt over your head, then write an affirmation that says: I am a great money manager.
Read that the first thing every morning and the last thing every night, for at least 90 days, and you will be amazed how that will help to clear out some of the negative garbage that’s in your mind.
Isn’t it time that we took some of that mental garbage out and got rid of it and perhaps buried it for a long time to come.
A Garbage Out Affirmation
I am replacing negative thoughts with powerful, positive affirmations that are improving my life.
