ourselves each day of our lives with our thoughts and self talk, but
is it for winning or losing?
An affirmation is a repeated statement
that is either spoken aloud, thought or written down. Affirmations
can dramatically alter the direction of our life through the
programming of our beliefs, self-talk and self concepts.
We use self-talk affirmations all the time in our heads, but
unfortunately mostly negative ones. e.g.
"I can't ..."; "I feel so guilty ..."; "I never have enough ..."; "I
hate ..."; and so on.
Humans are self programming robots! We do as we think ... affirmations
are our instructions.
Do you use negative affirmations like "I can't afford it",
"I feel ill" or "I'm
hopeless with money"?
Do you utter "Oh No! I'm fat!" to yourself each time you look in the
affirmations are just as powerful as positive
Personal power begins with modifying our self talk from negative to
To choose the best affirmations we must firstly get in touch with
EXACTLY what it is we want ... Success, Love, Acknowledgment? What
does that look like to you? Weight Loss, Money, A Relationship,
The next important step is to establish what obstacles prevent your
desire from being a reality now.
Say for example you desired a new car! What holds you back from
having one right now? Money? What "self talk" holds you back from
having money? Opportunities? Skills? Do you believe you are lazy,
too ill, a poor financial
manager or simply don't deserve money?
We begin by creating affirmations that boldly and emotionally state
what we want as though we have the goal right now ...e.g.
I earn $ ............ per annum right now.
I am worthy of receiving everything I
I am respected and admired by everybody
I have an abundance of energy and health right now.
I am feeling healthier every day.
I weigh ...........kg/lbs right now.
As we write or speak our
affirmations, we encourage our mind to
visualize what the accomplished goal will look like.
Affirmations help us to
achieve great things in our work; have wonderful relationships;
forgive ourselves; become healthy; forgive others; build confidence; release old
habits and create new ones.
A powerful way to use affirmations is to write them down.
Try writing ten (10) affirmations thirty-five (35) times, twice a
day, for seven (7) consecutive days and witness the extraordinary
transformations that occur.
It Takes 21
Days To Form a Habit
When you are convinced about the power of
affirmation - why not
record as many of them as you like [in your voice] on CD
or your MP3 Player to listen to. For the best results, affirmations should be listened
to twice a day for twenty-one (21) consecutive days in an
It has been suggested the BEST time to listen to autosuggestion is
when you are in "Alpha", i.e. the highly relaxed state which occurs
just before sleep. This is also the meditation state.
Important Note! Affirmations must be achievable and
If your goal cannot bring you happiness, love and freedom, don't
even bother with affirming ... because your unconscious self will
know better. Make your goals realistic to now, and you will be able
to upgrade as your goals become achievements!
What you focus
upon will grow!
Do not worry too much on "how" the goal will be achieved, only be
concerned to have the desire and to be able to "see" the end result in your minds eye.
Consider your affirmations as important as brushing your teeth.
Wishing you every success
