AFFIRMATIONS – are carefully formatted positive statements that help promote positive thinking.


Affirmations should be repeated to one’s self and written down frequently. In order to ensure the effectiveness of the affirmation, they have to be repeated with attention, conviction, interest and desire.

To be effective affirmations need to be present tense, positive, personal and describe a desired situation.

– Every day in every way my body is becoming more and more muscular

Motivational
– I can, I can, and I can.I can do it.
– I am full of energy and hope and live my life to the fullest

You can prepare any such affirmations yourself. Use them diligently and see their positive effects on your life.

It is advisable to repeat affirmations that are not too long, as they are easier to remember. Repeat them every time your mind is not engaged in something important; when affirming try to be relaxed physically, mentally and emotionally. The stronger the concentration, the more belief you have in what you are doing, the more feelings you put into it, the stronger and faster will be the results.

It is important to understand that results may appear quickly, but often more time is required. Results depend on several factors, the time, focus, faith and feelings you invest in repeating your affirmations, on the strength of your desire,
and how big or small your goal is.

Most people will repeat negative words and statements in their minds about situations and events in their lives, and consequently, create undesirable situations. Words and thoughts have the power to work both ways, to build and
to destroy.
