The path that leads to well-being is not always easy to follow. Before you can do that, you often need to tread unknown roads that may sometimes be perilous. But the satisfaction of having succeeded and a feeling of well-being await you at the end of the journey! Here are 12 rules that will help you make the journey to happiness!
Well-being rule #1: Believing
… Believing that it is possible to generate positive thoughts, whatever they may be, in the concrete reality. To that end, you need to give them enough power. How? You can, for instance, mentally repeat – with as much conviction as possible – the following formula:
“I believe it is possible for me to change!”
Well-being rule #2: Wanting
Developing your thoughts with the will to be successful in mind means you nearly have the certainty to be successful in the physical world. If a project is supported by positive thoughts, it will be brought to a successful completion. Here is what you need to tell yourself:
“It’s easy and I will succeed!”
Well-being rule #3: Imagining
Your mind is the backyard in which you will have to sow the seeds of positive thoughts. This “sowing” will be enough for them to grow and become the sparkling flowers of your success in real life. Here is what you must keep saying to yourself:
“I can see my new life and it feels good!”
Well-being rule #4: Orienting
You are absolutely free to take your life in hand. And the outcome of your action will be all the more resounding since you will have directed your thoughts at something qualitative. Generate mental representations or inner dialogs – in the intimacy of your soul – that are exclusively positive-oriented. You will then see how, thanks to the effect of a deep magnetic attraction, your achievements become as positive as your representations or inner dialogs! Say to yourself:
“Deep down, I am as strong as an ox!”
Well-being rule #5: Changing your life
Start by seriously analyzing what you would like your life to become. Define – in a simple but precise fashion – what you wish to do with your life. This is what I call formulating one’s life ambition. For instance:
“Soon, I’ll be prosperous!”
Well-being rule #6: Getting ready
Before setting off on the path of change and putting the art of positive thinking into practice, you have to get into peak condition, for instance, through a relaxation session!
Well-being rule #7: Practicing
At this stage, convince yourself even more that it is possible to change your life by always beginning the utterance of your life ambition with “I” or “as for me”, as follows:
“I feel better today than I did yesterday and I will feel even better tomorrow!”
Well-being rule #8: Reciting
Utter your life ambition out loud, in the same way you would say a prayer. Do this, at first, in the morning when you wake up. It will efficiently help you start the day off right.
Well-being rule #9: Reinforcing
Repeat this morning operation at midday to reinforce your intention of changing what you really wish to change in your life; doing this will act like a booster. The wishes pronounced at the time when the sun is at its zenith always set alight the energies beneficial to their fulfilment.
Well-being rule #10: Concluding
Perform the same operation one last time at night, before you go to sleep. It will then imbue your mind throughout the night. Your mind will forge ahead with the work you will have set in motion.
Well-being rule #11: Thinking positively
Always make use of the near future or present tense and scrupulously avoid any negative formula. Here is an example:
“On Monday, I will successfully deal with my job interview”
And not “On Monday, I will not fail my job interview”.
Well-being rule #12: Practicing
Practice on a daily basis; you do not need to wait until you need to call on this method for any specific goal. As the saying goes: “It’s better to be safe than sorry”. This is what it takes to make your well-being permanent.
