Are you ready to take the Affirmation Challenge and transform your life? The steps are quite easy, however it is up to you to put in that effort to work on re-training your mind. You will find that your ego (mind) has had such control on your life.The idea is to reboot and redirect your thoughts from the ‘default setting of doubt, lack, worry and fear. They now need to be transformed into more positive, nurturing, and uplifting thoughts that put your mind, heart and soul at ease and allow for magic to happen and the universe to do its thing.Read through the steps below and get started. Let your friends know. Get a group together for moral support and to keep you committed and on track (there is a real power in numbers).

THE STEPS: 5 SIMPLE STEPS TO A HEALTHY MIND!!
1) Choose a Day to Get You Started
First of all, you need to pick one day. It could be today, tommorrow or a day real soon that is a bit more free on your calendar. Book it in. Make the commitment to yourself! Let’s call this ‘Inventory Day’.
2) ‘Inventory Day’
Time to take an inventory! For this whole day that you have chosen (from step 1), you need to absolutely dedicate yourself 100% to watching, observing and analysing your thoughts.You will need to pay vigilant attention to everything that you think and say. It’s a good idea to keep a journal or jot down some of your thoughts in a notebook or piece of paper. Perhaps you could even draw up columns with the headings ‘Positive Thoughts’ and ‘Negative Thoughts.’ Note: Don’t try to change your thoughts at this point, try to be neutral and objective. Just let the thoughts flow naturally throughout the day. This step is about objective self-analysis, observing and recording anything that you notice or that stands out.
3) Analyse and Score Your Inventory
At the end of the day, examine your inventory. What do you notice? Look out for recurring patterns or anything that catches your attention. Are you surprised at what you find? How did your thoughts rank? What could be improved? Give yourself a score from 1 to 5 using the chart below:
Use the following ranking score chart:
1 – Your thoughts are extremely positive. Congratulations!! you probably do not need to take the challenge!
2 – Your thoughts are mostly positive, though you have the odd lapse.
3 – Your thoughts average in the middle between positive and negative.
4 – You realise that your thoughts are mostly negative, though sometimes you can be positive.
5 – Time to check into a clinic :). You discover your thoughts are predominantly negative. Congratulations on taking a long hard look at your mind habits. You really need to take this challenge! And support is here for you.
4) Make a Time Commitment to Improve Your Thoughts
Now, choose a new time period which you can dedicate wholeheartedly to going the next level and not only monitoring but also actively changing your thoughts. It might be a period of one day, three days, a week, one month or more, or anything in between. I recommend starting as soon as you can, and doing this for a good solid week or a month to get you started on your road to transformation. And don’t forget to mark it on your calendar. Get creative – draw colourful borders or something to remind you. Have a journal or notebook ready for the next step.
5) Project ‘Mindfulness’
Now that you have your time period sorted, time to get started. You will be going about your normal life, however you will have committed yourself to being ‘aware’ and ‘conscious’ of your thoughts. The idea is to ‘catch’ your thoughts as they happen. Whenever you find yourself having a negative thought, go through the “CCC” process. Here it is: Catch it, cancel it, then covert it.
Here’s a summarising phrase to help you: CATCH. CANCEL. CONVERT. (CCC)
Let’s examine this in a bit more detail:
1 – Catch it – Catch that negative sentence straight away.
2 – Cancel it – You can do this in a number of ways such as saying something like “Cancel, clear, delete,” “I cancel / erase that statement,” or “I completely cancel that sentence I just said”. You can also support this with some quick energy work. Either swipe your hands in the air like you are pushing your thought / the negative energy away, or visualise throwing it in a little invisible rubbish bin that stays permanently beside your foot (you can also gesture the movement of throwing the thought into the bin beside you.
3 – Convert it – Convert or replace the negative thought with a positive version. This is just a matter of turning the words around or finding a positive way to say what it is you wish to express. If you really find this step difficult, ‘fake it till you make it’.
