I recently got to know that Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia (a continuous decline in thinking, behavioural and social skills that disrupts a person’s ability to function independently). Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to degenerate and die (mayo clinic).
Some of the early signs of the disease include forgetting recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s disease will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to conduct everyday tasks. According to a study at Kings College London, continuous negative thinking may increase a person’s risk of Alzheimer’s disease and currently, there is no cure for the disease.
We live in a world that requires making extra effort, taking some deliberate steps and making faithful proclamations daily to keep our hopes alive and become more resilient despite numerous adversities.
I thought I am freed from negatively proclaiming about issues and events in my life until early January 2020, I had a problem at my workplace, which required me to provide a solution immediately that would enable us to retain a client and a deadline was also given. It was hard for me since I could not think of any possible solution.
I was so worried that it clouded my memory, I simply could not think straight. I called a friend and explained all that happened to him so he gave me some advice.
I still did not CALM DOWN to listen to him; I was anxious and informed him that the solution he has given to me would never work.
He eventually stopped talking and asked me what I wanted to do.
I simply responded that ‘I do not know and I am confused’.
He felt disappointed and asked why I will ever make such statements… “you are confused? He further asked if I am not the one who regularly reminds him about affirmations and ranting in his hears “I AM AN EXTRAORDINARY. LOL
It was really a big punch, I repeated the affirmation and sense suddenly dawned on me and I sat down, taught about the solution he gave me and made it fit into my current situation and it worked. Through that incidence, I sincerely understood what affirmation does to the mind and I had to say it regularly like I am taking a cup of water.
I also understood that affirmations provide us with strength to truly believe in ourselves and action we desire to take and when we positively speak about our dreams and aspirations, we instantly garner strength with a deep sense of reassurance that our wishful words will become reality.
