Affirmations are an essential ingredient in your recipe for success. Whether your goal is to develop wealth and abundance, lose weight, stop smoking, or any positive change, affirmations help program your mind to accomplish your goals.
A positive affirmation must contain the following key ingredients :
• Use positive words and phrases
• Be in the first person and the present tense (“I am …”)
• Are specific about what you want to be (to have, to do, etc.)
An example of a positive affirmation is “Money enhances my positive power” or “I am successful in everything I do.”
You can start harnessing the transformative powers of positive affirmations by applying the following guidelines:
Replace Negative with Positive
The environment we live in tends to be negative. But the moment you start using positive affirmations, you choose to ignore negativity and adopt a positive attitude. An attitude which will propel you towards success. Using affirmations is critical in developing the self-motivation that can turn our goals and dreams into realities
Modify your Thinking
Your mind believes what you tell it. Reprogram your subconscious mind by using positive affirmations and watch your conscious mind transform it into positive action. You essentially become the person you have affirmed yourself to be. Think it, then do it.
Personalise Your Own Affirmations
First, you need to decide what you want to achieve. Be specific about what you want to be, to do, and to have. Then, create your own affirmation in the first person in the present tense. This creates concrete, tangible goals which give you a direction to work towards.
Repeat, Repeat and Repeat
To ensure your affirmations are effective, you need to repeat them to yourself daily with attention, conviction, interest and desire. Writing them down on post-it notes and sticking them on your bathroom mirror, fridge door and places that you pass by frequently, helps to keep your goals in front of you.
