Daily affirmations are simple, positive statements declaring specific goals in their completed states. Although they sound rather basic at that level, these empowering mantras have profound effects on the conscious and unconscious mind.
How to Create Positive Affirmations
The daily use of positive affirmations interrupts and eventually totally replaces this barrage of negative thoughts and beliefs. To achieve this, you must continually flood your subconscious with thoughts and images of the new reality you wish to create.
I am going to share with you two sets of guidelines for creating powerful daily affirmations that work—the long form and the short form.
Here are the six guidelines for creating effective affirming statements. You may want to write these down.
- Start with the words “I am.” These are the two most powerful words in the English language.
- Use the present tense.
- State it in the positive. Affirm what you want, not what you don’t want.
- Keep it brief.
- Make it specific.
- Make affirmations for yourself, not others.
Here Are Some More Examples of Positive Affirmations:
