If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I am passionate about personal development, positivity, and that I believe in the law of attraction. All that being said, the title of this blog probably surprises you. You probably assume (and are correct) that I use affirmations and believe strongly in them. Then you may be wondering “Why would you write a blog entitled ‘Do Affirmations Work?”
Well, let me explain…
First with a video from facebook….
And just in case you are somewhere where facebook is blocked, how about YouTube?
And in case you aren’t big on watching videos…
Have you tried using affirmations? Have you felt uncomfortable when you did?
Could it be because you don’t believe in what you’re saying?
That’s why affirmations don’t work and are BS.
You need to make sure that you’re writing and saying them correctly!
When you’re creating your affirmations, you have to believe them. This works as a great cycle. Think about it:
Let’s say that you want to become more physically fit. If you tell yourself “I’m very fit and strong!” your mind will think “wait a second… not so much!” and you will doubt yourself.
But if you think to yourself “I am working on my fitness daily, and getting stronger,” your mind believes that, and you will continue making progress because your actions will keep your statement true, and you can keep proving yourself right until eventually, you can celebrate the fact that stating “I’m very fit and strong” is true!
THAT’s what makes affirmations work!
What are some of your “old” affirmations?
How can you re-word your new affirmations so that you believe them and can keep making progress on them?
