If you find yourself battling with the same old bad habits or unhealthy behaviors chances are your mental script needs an overhaul. If our thoughts control our behavior, then we need to replace unhealthy thoughts with healthy thoughts by focusing on what we want to achieve instead of what we lack. Focusing on lack produces more lack. Therefore, if you are in debt, think about God's abundance and overflowing blessings in your life. If you are fearful, fill your mind with scriptures or affirmations regarding God's protection and safety. If you are doubtful, build up your most wholly faith with scriptures attesting to God's faithfulness.If you are having problems in your marriage, instead of belaboring what your partner doesn't do, meditate on thoughts that will create a healthy and loving relationship. It will change the way you see your mate. Affirmations, if listened to consistently for a period of time, will help you to change the way you think resulting in a change of behavior.
According to Haley, we make unconscious beliefs and assumptions about ourselves all the time: This is who I am. I can do this. I can't do this. People think this about me. This will work. This won't. Our beliefs are the soil in which we plant the seeds that manifest into our lives. Unhealthy soil creates thwarted seeds and stifled plants. "Give yourself a target and program your mind everyday through explicit, visual messages that this is your actuality," states Haley. "Our subconscious mind can't tell the difference between a real experience and one that has been vividly imagined," she declares.
