Why affirmations don't always work and what to do, that's way better. Hey, Scott Haug here and welcome to today's video. Now I've certainly been in that place where I used to have about 10 to 15 pages of affirmations in every area of life. And I used to read these affirmations out loud, over and over and over every single morning. In fact, they almost took me in an hour every single morning, believe it or not. And I thought that was a way to bring in better success and reprogram my mind. I was listening into a lot of videos at the time. And reading books like think go rich and different self-help material. And it just seemed like I got the understanding that in order for me to change my life, I needed to do and think something different. Right. I needed to change my programming and my subconscious around money around success, around accomplishment, all these different elements of life.
Right. But absolutely I got mental and spiritual progress, right. Things were evolving and things were growing, but the physical results didn't seem to always come. And also, uh, you know, a lot of those thoughts that I had from the affirmations were very temporary, right. So I would think a great way for a couple of days, but then not think so. Great. So it was very interesting for me at the time, because I got kind of frustrated with the whole idea of affirmations. It seemed like these things didn't work. And then also I was saying some things out loud that I'm like, I don't even believe this, right? This is a load of BS. And if I'm saying I'm a multimillionaire, or if I'm saying I am highly successful, but I'm not right. So I'm saying there's affirmations out loud and I don't feel them. I don't believe them.
So it's basically, I'm just saying no, he's out loud and thinking I'm changing my life. So I came across the discovery and the idea on why affirmations really weren't working for me at the time. And they probably in many ways might not be working for you all the way that they could be. It's not that affirmations work or don't work. It's how you work them. There's a great quote from the science of getting rich by water, Wallace D Wattles and what he talks about there is the idea of you don't get rich by doing certain things. You get rich by doing things in a certain way, right? So it's really about how we do the affirmations or if we're visualizing how we visualize, or if you're doing gratitude, how you do the gratitude or any of these other techniques that you hear about, whether I'm my channel or another channel, it doesn't even matter, right?
These techniques that you hear about how you do it and not necessarily if it works or not. So the one side is basically noise. Okay? Affirmations are basically noise. They are words we're saying out loud. And if you don't believe him, basically, why don't you believe him is because you are comparing your current reality to the affirmation, right? So if I'm saying I am incredibly, uh, money accomplishing, I'm an incredible marketer in my, and I am now earning 10,000 hours a month. Okay. But then your mind is comparing it to present day. Your mind is going to Dow in disbelief where you're saying aloud, you're gonna say, it's a load of solo to BS. This is not, is that true? Is that accurate? Right? Because I'm saying something out loud, that's not actual in my physical reality. So I am thinking of a certain way, comparing it to my physical reality, which makes me feel, feel the frustration, feel the irritation, feel the lack of the thing I actually want to become.
Right? So we do these affirmations out loud. It feels like, well, this thing it's not even working, right? These affirmations don't even actually do anything. We're just saying this out loud. Here's the discovery that I found for myself. And it's going to absolutely help you. And it's gonna really blow you away. This is something that a lot of people don't tell you, when they're saying do affirmations to visualization, you could go online and search. How do I change my life? And they might come up with a top 10 list and they write down affirmations and visualize and be grateful and all these things. Right? But there's a lot more to every single one of these things you hear about for affirmations specifically, what I want you to start thinking about is calling them emotionalized affirmations. Okay? Emotional realized affirmations feeling as the secret feelings, the key, if you are not feeling your affirmations, they're really not doing anything for you.
Might as well throw them in the trash. Okay? Now that sounds like pretty big, right? They're like throwing my information's in a trash. I'm trying to change my life while you're telling me it's throwing the trash. Cause it's really not working for you. You're wasting your time. You're wasting your energy and it's going to cause you ultimate more frustration because you're trying to get a dream, but it's not happening when you emotional lies an affirmation. Okay? What it actually does is you become the idea. It's very different than intellectually knowing something. That's the other side, the affirmations, they were just saying out loud, but you don't feel, you know them, but you don't become it. So therefore you're feeling results, behaviors. They just don't change. You have to feel it. You have to actually emotional wise, every single affirmation you do and feel it to be true today. That's why we call them emotional affirmations.
Now let's take it A step deeper here because I want to keep you hanging. Most people will say, well, that's cool, but how do I feel it? Right? If I'm saying it out loud, like we talked about and I am comparing it to my physical reality, it's not really true. How do I feel it to be true? If it's not actually true? There's a very distinct thing. That would be a great thing to keep in a note card in your pocket, there are physical trues. And then even higher than that, there are spiritual trues. When you say an affirmation, here's how it's going to go. It is a spiritual truth, but it's a physical lie.
So when you do an affirmation, it allowed me to starting to feel it while you have the capacity to feel it to be true now is because there is a side of you, the ultimate side of you. The, I am the universal side of you, that bigger of side, the higher side, higher self, whatever you call that, that actually is with the possibility of you becoming something more than you are today, right? That's essentially why you're studying a person's vomit in the first place or anything else is you have whether unconscious or conscious that belief that you can become something more because there's something within you that can grow to become more right? If you believe that, then you also must therefore believes that that higher side of you holds the possibility. If there's a possibility in eight within you already to grow into spiritually internally, right?
So as you start to become that, you can actually say, I am a multimillionaire. I am successful. I am accomplished or something even a little bit smaller that you're striving for. I am now consistently earning $10,000 a month, or I am now consistently earning blank amount of money per month or whatever area of life it is. Right. When you say that out loud, I want you to actually visualize that you're actually seeing it from your higher self. You're not talking about the physical reality. You are talking about a higher plane of understanding, a higher side of you. That's an energetic side of you. Something that can be way more than you are today. As you compare the statement to that, it's going to feel true. It's going to feel like, well, absolutely. If I'm talking through my higher side, that all things are possible, that everything is possible for me from that higher side at this higher side is complete love, complete abundance, complete prosperity, everything that you can think of, complete happiness.
If I have that from understanding, I say, it's affirmation out loud. It's going to feel true. Now, like I said, it's a spiritual truth, but it's a physical lie. He might be saying things out loud. You might be even saying the simple idea of I am becoming more and more successful. If you look at your physical results, that might not be the fact he might not actually be becoming more successful in your financial side, your job, your business, you know, whatever it is that you have going on right now, it might be a lie. Okay? But again, what you're saying is a spiritual truth and it's a physical life. It's a becoming a physical truth, right? If we just talked about everything, that's true today. And that's all we said out loud, I'm this way. I'm this way. I'm this way based on physical results, life would never change, right?
Things would never actually happen. That's why we have to actually believe it. Then we'll see it. What does that actually mean? You go to your imagination, where everything is possible, where you actually take this formless substance that's coming to and through your consciousness and you mold it, you shape it. It's a plastic substance. That's what we call imagination. And when you form images on the screen of your imagination, what we call end scenes, you're literally shaping this plastic substance into what you do desire. And as long as you feel it to be true, that's going to start to be activated, to move into life. Now this stuff is not magic. Okay? If you're saying I am successful, I am highly. I am now earning this. I am now this, you can expect it to happen by tonight. You can't expect it to happen overnight. And magic dust is thrown in the air.
It's like how Lou? Yeah, it happens, right? It's not a miracle thing that happens. What happens is a steady progress from here. Not always linear, but steady, consistent progress from here. Okay. That allows you to actually start being the very thing you're saying out loud. So if you're saying I'm highly accomplished, well maybe it's going to take you three to six months from here to get to an accomplishment. We could actually confirm that and say, yes, physically, I am now that right. But between now and that three to six month time, you're going to have new ideas. You're going to start owning the image. You're going to start to attract new people. You're going to attract the right ad at the right time for the right course you needed or the right person or the right, whatever it is, maybe this video right now, divinely time for you.
And it's, something's clicking better than before he came to this video. Right? So you're going to start to attract between now and you receiving the physical result, all of these beautiful unfoldings and happenings, as long as you stay faithful to the AF affirmation, emotionalized affirmation that you're saying out loud. Okay? Not only that, but I want you to start matching your inner thoughts. Look at the words. Don't try to get through the affirmations. Like, you know, in grade school we would have an exam or homework and we're just trying to get that thing done with right. And then we're we do. We hand in the homework, we do the exam and then we let it go. And we never think about it again. Right? Affirmations. These emotional affirmations are not something to get done. There's something to become. So when you're reading the affirmation, you're reading the words on the paper, really pay attention to what you're saying and start to allow what you're saying, to actually feel your being and say, this is who I am becoming.
And you tell the universe, the universe is a loving place. You want to start believing that great things happen to great people. The universe is trying to help you. It wants you to be better. It wants you to win a, wants these affirmations on the page to become your life, your reality. And as you do, so you're going to start really seeing these words on the page as if the universe is helping me have this become the, you know, true in my life, physically true in my life, allowing this stuff to actually become who I am ultimately what's happening. When you have any emotional affirmation is you are taking an idea. Like I said, taking this plastic substance, forming it into an end scene. When you feel it to be true today, what you're doing is dropping a spiritual seed, an idea thought into your subconscious mind, that's it.
That's when your mind gets reprogrammed over a consistent, uh, you know, doing this days in days in a row, weeks in a row, you're not only getting it reprogrammed, but you're also dropping a seed into a universal part of us, which is connected to all people right now, even though you can't see that. So you're going to have great things unfolding in your life and these cool things attracted in into your life, the right time at the right place, key symbols and ideas and signs from the universe, allowing you to move forward. So essentially when you're doing emotional ice affirmation, you're dropping down and so conscious. And that's where things start to move. That's when things start to really attract into your life a lot faster and a lot more flowing. All right. So try it out. Regular affirmations. Forget about those. They're just noise.
Okay. You're just saying things out loud. You have to feel it. And we just went through how you feel it, why it works that way and allowing yourself to become the idea. That's when results shift, that's what we call creating and shifting to a different plane of consciousness. And when that happens, things, you know, results actually prove when you just know the ideas are saying them out loud, we don't feel them to be true, or you feel them to be the opposite. They're not true at all, where you're getting frustrated, irritated or any of these things. And you're feeling that okay, well, it's really going to do is set you backwards and get you more frustrated than anything else instead of getting more progress.
