Why Your Brain is Saying "Nice Try!"

“Underneath all and everything there is ‘something precious’ that is rightfully ours. It is our contact with this ‘very thing’ that will lead us to possess all and everything.»

-The School For Gods

Ever chanted "I am successful" and “ I am rich” while feeling like a complete fraud? Affirmations often fail and will dig deep into the inner conflict they brew. Let’s blow the lid off the self-help cookie jar!

You've been there, haven't you? Chanting "I am wealthy" or "I am loved" in hopeful repetition. But what if, instead of beckoning abundance, you're broadcasting a radio signal of lack to the universe?

Affirmations: The Self-Help World's Lipstick on a Pig?

At its core, an affirmation is akin to putting a cheerful sticker on a broken vase, hoping it'll mend the cracks. But let's get real. Sometimes that sticker only emphasizes the break

The Universe's Static Noise?

At face value, affirmations seem like a direct line to the universe. In reality? They might just be background static. Every time you state what you want to manifest, there's an underlying message: "I don't have this yet."

Why Your Brain is Saying "Nice Try!"

  1. Emotional Disconnect: mouthing words without their accompanying emotion is like expecting a car to run without fuel. declaring words without their emotional weight is like a radio without a signal. And the universe? It doesn't tune into static.

  2. The Tug-of-War Within: If deep down you feel undeserving or skeptical, your affirmations become hollow echoes. Your subconscious isn't fooled, and neither is the universe.

    If your inner narrative screams "imposter", whispering sweet nothings won't drown it out. It's an inner tug-of-war, and guess which side has been training harder?

  3. Reality Over Repetition: affirmations without alignment to your current reality are just delusions. And you can't trick the universe with delusions. You can't affirm your way out of a toxic environment or situation. That's not mindset; that's denial.

The Inner Turmoil of Affirmations

Here's the provocative truth: Every time you use an affirmation that doesn't align with your current belief system, you're not just wasting time - you're adding to your internal strife. It's like having two inner voices, one optimistically lying and the other cynically calling out the lie. The result? Inner conflict, confusion, and diminished self-worth.

Broadcasting Lack, Not Abundance

Here's the kicker: Every affirmation, when not genuinely felt or believed, screams "I lack this" to the universe. Think about it. By constantly affirming "I want," you're highlighting what's missing, not what's present or forthcoming. Did you ever see a rich person sitting and chanting “I am rich”? Of course not. Because They are. Only when you ARE NOT you need to affirm it in case you will believe it.

Re-tuning Your Signal: Broadcasting Abundance

  1. Embrace the Real, Then Dream: acknowledge reality, then lose yourself in the emotion-packed dream of what's to come.

  2. Neural Network Upgrade: Deep dive. Use tools that fit you, get down and dirty with those limiting beliefs, then overhaul them.

  3. Action Above All: Words without action are empty. Dream, yes, but also move!

  4. Align Your Echo Chamber: If your environment broadcasts negativity or disbelief, no affirmation will change your frequency. Curate your surroundings with intent.

Bottom Line: Dial into the Universe Correctly

If affirmations are your chosen method, make sure they're not just hopeful shouts into the void. It's time to ensure you're sending the right signals. The universe is always listening. Make sure you're communicating clearly.

OUR MISSION: Create Sovereign Humans with a toolbox of techniques and guidance to gain control over your choices and actions, leading to desired outcomes.

If you've ever dreamed of being something other than what you've been told you are, DO THE WORK.

If you secretly want to change the very core of your life and scream free your uniqueness GET OUT OF THE BOX.

Abandon the narrative, the known, and the comfort. Build yourself up as you fear to BE!

«Living strategically is the action of a warrior who intentionally and flawlessly performs the acts that the situation requires. Externally he responds to the need of the role… at the same time, internally, he takes possession of the responsibility and power that hides behind that mask. Only those who live strategically can make it!»

Reflect on your personal experiences with affirmations. Write about a time when an affirmation made you feel more aware of what you lacked, rather than bringing you closer to your desired outcome. How did this realization influence your perspective on self-help methods?
