The definition of Auto-Suggestion is the hypnotic or subconscious adoption of an idea that one has originated oneself, e.g. through repetition of verbal statements to oneself in order to change behavior.
Lots of people will auto-suggest the worst life they could live. Because they tell themselves negative things every day then that is how your life will originate. People tell themselves every day they are broke or they can't pay their bills or I am fat and will never be thin. Every day is a crazy day.
I make sure that I am telling myself every day the opposite. If I can't pay a bill I tell myself I will have enough money to pay 100 of those bills. I will change any negative thought to a positive thought. Things don't always go as I plan but I still believe it will happen in time the way I say it will because I believe it and have faith.
It is hard to break a bad habit and I think the worst habit and one of the hardest to break is shaping our own lives through negative self-talk. I am so sure that we are very unaware of the words we ruin ourselves with on a daily basis and having to change that kind of habit takes a commitment.
If you are having a tough time turning your words around then write it down. Write what you want to have, write what you need to have, write where you need to be. Tell yourself who you are and feel it. Read this daily many times a day and you will soon be using positive talk daily.
I find myself pointing out to friends and family how negative they are being. I might even get on their nerves a bit but it is important to me to change their beliefs and change their lives.
