"It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen...I am the greatest!"
Affirm Success is the third in this ten-part series as a refresher or introduction to the powerful strategies in Working with Wisdom. See the others here.
Studies show we speak to ourselves at least 10,000 times a day and 80 percent of that is negative--even the most enlightened of us! That's because we're human and we're programmed to protect ourselves against worst-case scenarios.
The good news is that affirmations, or positive self-talk, can counter the negative messages that play in our heads with empowering ones that support our success. The rule of thumb is to keep it brief, positive and in the present.
Call to Action:
- Choose a goal that's important to you, like improving your health by eating right and exercising.
- Craft an emotional affirmation that supports your goal, like: "I am strong, healthy and active." You'll soon start acting as if it was already so.
- Write that affirmation down, say it to yourself and out loud and, if appropriate, say it to others.
- Notice how affirming success gives you the focus and confidence to achieve your goals.
