Positive is Powerful - The Impact of Your Thoughts and Affirmations

In this episode of Surviving Your Brain, Dr. Philippe Douyon explains how powerful our thoughts actually are. From giving examples of how both our conscious and subconscious minds are being influenced by various factors, Dr. Douyon reiterates the importance of living a purposeful life by establishing a vision for yourself. This includes having consistently positive thoughts and affirmations as part of your everyday routine.

Dr. Douyon also quotes Bruce Lee’s statement to ‘never say anything negative about yourself,’ even as a joke, because your brain does not know the difference! Now’s the time to conquer the negative messages that society & other forms of media have bombarded us with, and start tapping in to the power of positive thoughts and affirmations.


  • Success in health, business, and life starts in your brain
  • Companies, politics, and artists – influence you more thank you think
  • Words are the verbal embodiment of power
  • The brain’s reticular activating system is responsible for our consciousness, our sleep-wake cycles, and our level of awareness
  • Focusing on a certain thought gives your brain a message that it is essential to you
  • How to combat negative messages from the society
  • The subconscious mind governs 95% of our behaviour, conscious mind for things we think about
  • Use positive affirmations on a daily basis like: “I am healthy.”


“There are things that impact us when we're not even paying attention, things that impact us when we're almost in a drowsy hypnotic state or in a sleep state. Our subconscious mind is incredibly powerful.” - Philippe Douyon

“Taking charge of our thoughts allows us to create the life that we want for ourselves. And using positive affirmations allows us to take charge of our thoughts.” - Philippe Douyon
