I described affirmations as powerful positive self-talk.
I’ve always used them to energize and motivate me, inspiring me to put in my best efforts in everything I do. Naturally I have a growing repository of affirmations that I use for different occasions.
I have affirmations for self motivation to lift my spirits when I find them flagging. I have affirmations for gratitude and affirmations that heal.
Affirmations to give me that swift kick in my pants when I feel lazy and need a push.
You’ve heard me say it so often – that Happiness is a DIY project. This is a lesson I’ve learned throughout my life. I learned through experience that things just don’t come and fall in your lap. Okay, so there will be the occasional fluke. I’ve found I’ve always had to be pro-active and take action when I wanted something to change.
Long ago – decades in fact – one of my bosses would make us all say the words: Yes I Can together. We were all new to sales at the time and were nervous about getting out into the field. Cold calling intimidated us. Repeating “Yes I Can” together somehow made us all feel stronger and more confident. We developed the habit of visualizing positive outcomes and this determined the quality of effort we put in.
One of the most important things I learned was this: repetition of practice is critical to seeing results. You know what they say about practice making you perfect. I know some people scorn positive thinking but I personally feel that when one wants something and plans to work towards achieving it, expecting positive results can be so motivating.
Affirmations are powerful
Positive Affirmations are positive present-tense first-person statements that you repeat until they become your new spoken thoughts.
We are what we think. Focusing on the negative is stressful. Just imagine: if we always expected the worst, how would we ever get things done?
My Mom had this habit of writing affirmations on cards and placing them where they are visible, a habit I religiously follow. Not only is it encouraging, but also makes me feel like everything is possible. I like to focus on my strengths rather than fret over what I can’t do.This has helped me steer my life in the path I want.
Most of all, affirmations act like the guardian angel who supports me, assures me that I am capable, increasing my chances of succeeding at the goals I set myself.
I am not saying it is wrong to worry – a little stress is always healthy; but it is sensible to see the bright side. Affirmations are life-changing. But, to use them you’ve got to change your thoughts first.
So, I ask you…
