How To Create Positive Affirmations
Whether you believe it or not, you can attract anything in your life that you give attention to, because like attracts like. Positive affirmations are a powerful tool that can make the opposite happen. By believing in a thought or sentence and repeating it to yourself regularly, you have the power to attract more positivity to your life.
Your words are incredibly powerful, and when done correctly, positive affirmations can be an impactful tool that will help you find the power to accomplish things that you didn’t think was possible. However, they only work if you believe them. Here’s how to create positive affirmations that you can believe in and achieve all your life’s greatest desires.
Identify What You Want
To get started writing a positive affirmation for your life, you have to think about what you really want. Not just something that you would quite like, but something that you truly desire. Think about what would make your life happier and more fulfilled and write those thoughts down. The essential part of creating positive affirmations is ensuring that you are completely clear about what you want without worrying about the when or the how.
List the Attributes You’ll Need
When you’ve identified what you want, the next step is determining the attributes that you’ll need to achieve your goal. You should list between four and six things. You attributes are the things that you need to be, rather than the things that you need to do. Once you’ve written these out, circle a few that you believe to be the most essential attributes that you will need to embody to reach your goal.
Write Your Affirmation
Once you have your desires and attributes written down, it’s time to create your affirmation. You want to create a statement that is between one and two sentences, and that states the goal and attributes in a positive and empowering way. This can be challenging, so you should write down some ideas as they come to you and repeat them out loud. It is absolutely essential that your affirmation is written in the present tense, i.e. I am, not I will be.
Practice Your New Affirmation
Now that you’ve created an affirmation, it’s time to practice it and repeat it often. You want to be sure to repeat your affirmations every day. To help you remember to say your statements you set a reminder on your phone, you can set your phone’s background to a picture of your affirmation, so you see it every time you use your phone, or you can put them on Post-Its and place them around your home or office. Put one on your bathroom mirror, so that you can read it while you are cleaning your teeth. You could also put one by your kettle so you can read it while you are making a cup of tea. Put one by your computer screen, so that you can look at it multiple times a day. Do whatever works for you. You really cannot repeat your affirmations too many times during the day. It should be an enjoyable experience, not something that is a chore.
Start your day by reading your affirmation first thing in the morning, before you get out of bed and finish your day by reading it after getting into bed, just before you go to sleep.
When you first start reading your affirmations, it is quite difficult, as it is a change to your normal daily routine, but as time goes on, you will find it easier and easier and you will enjoy it more and more.
Affirmations are incredibly helpful in helping you achieve your desires as long as you do them correctly. You have the power to use your mind to create the future you desire.
