How Daily Writing Of Positive Affirmations Helps In Self-Development

By Betsy Randall

Have you heard the word that “neurons that fire together wire together”? It is a common saying in psychology. It means the more you practice certain beliefs or thoughts, the more those thoughts and beliefs are likely to manifest in your life.

Positive affirmations can propel you to succeed in life. It can make you achieve the impossible if you know how to make use of them. The step towards self-development is one that must be backed up by position actions. And when you say to yourself every morning that you will achieve your goal, it is likely to happen.

However, writing of positive affirmations is a special philosophy and can help you achieve your self-development goals, and here is how.

Opportunity to rewire the brain

Positive affirmations will not have much impact on you when you do not remember them. But by writing them down daily, you are likely to remain and act on them. The brain can only give what you store in it. And according to scientist, the part of the brain associated with writing and speaking is the frontal lobe. So by writing and speaking, you are rewiring your brain to act on those positive affirmations.

According to the cognitive learning theory, humans have two types of memory; short and long-term memory. And one way to transfer information from short-term to long-term memory is by expressing ideas in your own words. It is possible to remember 70 percent of the things we say and write down.

The frontal lobe is the part of the brain responsible for most of our actions like judgment, reasoning, problem-solving, planning and reasoning. The parietal lobe is essential in the interpretation of languages and words in the brain. So, stimulating these regions of the brain gives us an opportunity to rewire it.

When you continue to feed your brain with positive affirmations, a new brain imaging study has shown that it could have shown how much positive impact it can have on you. It shows that self-affirmations can help to restore self-competence. According to the study, participants that were affirmed expressed increased activities in key regions of the self-processing system of the brain.

Reprogramming your subconscious mind

The subconscious mind plays a vital role in self-development. And most of our messages and experiences in life are stored in this area. It holds millions of thoughts that come together to form our beliefs, characteristics, and mindset in life.

The subconscious mind learns from behaviors you have exhibited throughout life. It is what controls your footsteps as you journey in life. Your subconscious mind learns its behavior from repetitions and practice. So when you write and practice positive affirmations daily, it will reflect on your life positively. These positive affirmations will help to change your beliefs and life in general.

Walter E. Jacobson, M.D., spoke of the role the subconscious mind plays in the actualization of our lives and manifestation our desires. According to him, whatever belief you have about yourself at the subconscious level can have a bigger impact on your activities and outcome of events in your life.

Daily writing of positive affirmations can help to reprogram your mind. The visual mental picture you create when you write down your positive affirmations will help to stimulate your subconscious, and it will accept and start seeing them as reality.

Daily writing positive affirmations will help you to create a library of words that can shape your life. There is a high tendency that you will act on them since they are what you personally wrote. Positive affirmations can help you to scale through the hurdles of life and achieve your goals. And you will be able to achieve more in life.
