Establishing Affirmations Copy

What Are Affirmations?

Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired situation, habit or goal. They are usually short sentences, and are repeated often, for the purpose of impressing them on the subconscious mind and trigger it into action, to bring the desired situation, habit or goal into fruition.

The act of repeating the affirmations, motivates, inspires, and programs the mind to act according to the repeated words.

This process triggers the subconscious mind to strive and to work on one’s behalf, to make the positive statements come true.

Affirmations are very useful for building new habits, improving yourself and your life, and for achieving success.

Actually, most people use affirmations in their daily life, though they are not aware of what they are doing. They mostly repeat negative affirmations. If you have been telling yourself in your mind, how unhappy you are, unable to study, do not have enough money, or how difficult life is, you have been repeating negative affirmations.

Most people repeat in their minds negative words and statements concerning the negative situations and events in their lives, and consequently, create undesirable situations. Words work both ways, to build or destroy. It is the way we use them that determines whether they are going to bring good or harmful results.

Positive Affirmations in Everyday Life

Your subconscious mind accepts as true what you keep saying, and it attracts corresponding events and situations into your life. So why not choose only positive statements, so you create positive results?

Imagine that you are running with your friends.

They run 10km, something you have never done before, and since you want to win their respect, you want to show them that you can do it too.

You start running, and at the same time keep repeating in your mind, “I can do it, I can do it…”. You keep thinking and believing that you are going to complete the distance.

What are you actually doing? You are repeating positive affirmations.

In a different situation, you might find yourself repeating:

  • “I cannot do this”
  • “It’s too big for me”
  • “It is not going to work out”

If you repeat these words, you lose ambition, motivation and faith, and ultimately, what you fear and keep telling yourself become true. It is therefore important that you teach yourself to think constructive thoughts and repeat positive words instead.

People use words to think. Most people have inner conversations about their problems, difficulties, and the obstacles they meet. This is like repeating negative affirmations. This makes the problems and difficulties more acute and unpleasant.

Instead, it is wiser to have positive inner conversations. Repeat words and thoughts about finding solutions, improving, and winning. Perhaps stick little notes for yourself around the house to remind you of your positive affirmations and to see them often.

Positive affirmations is a great tool to use in your everyday life, to motivate, inspire, and give you strength.
