Who Else Says Affirmations?

Who Else Says Affirmations?

If you’ve been saying positive affirmations as part of your self-improvement work, I’ll bet you’re wondering who else says affirmations. Does everybody? Does anybody? It will probably surprise you that every single person on this planet says affirmations, every single day. Seriously! I did not say “positive” affirmations, though. The definition of an affirmation is: a declaration, statement, assertion, proclamation or pronouncement. The pure definition has nothing whatsoever to say about positive or negative, or empowering or disempowering, limiting or …

How to Use Daily Affirmations to Improve Your Life

How to Use Daily Affirmations to Improve Your Life

You are what you think. Yes, really! Your self-talk becomes habit, and habit drives your choices and actions and therefore your results. It’s super important to be careful with your thoughts. Most of your thoughts are habits of self-talk that you’ve developed over the years. That isn’t a problem in and of itself, unless your self-talk is disempowering and self-defeating. Remember… self-talk becomes habit, and habit drives your choices and actions. Look around at your circumstances to see the effects …

Your Word is a Command to the Universe. Yup!

Your Word is a Command to the Universe. Yup!

Your Word is incredibly powerful. Your Word is your collective thoughts and emotions (expressed or not). It’s the self-talk that guides you in making decisions; it’s the beliefs that help you interpret the world; and it’s a direct manifesting order. What you tell yourself you can do, you’ll be able to do; what you tell yourself you can’t do, you won’t do. Another word for your Word is: affirmations. Affirmations are simply statements of fact, whether they are positive or …

Affirmations for Kids: Imprinting the Right Beliefs

Adults benefit from positive affirmations, and kids do too! Since most self-limiting beliefs originate in childhood, you can give your children a head start on abundance, happiness and a great life with a daily dose of positive self-talk.

Do Affirmations Work? Yes, If You Know the Rules!

“Do affirmations work?” is a very common question that all personal development teachers hear over and over. The short answer is, YES. Think about it. All day long, you are talking to yourself. Whether what you say is positive and empowering or negative and disempowering, the point is, YOU LISTEN, you believe yourself, and you act on what you tell yourself. Therefore, what you tell yourself over and over again, with feeling, does imprint in your subconscious mind and it …

Change Your Mind With a Positive Affirmations List

Change Your Mind With a Positive Affirmations List

Not many of us grew up knowing the power of positive thinking. There may have been a lot of love, but there may have also been an undercurrent of guilt, fear and rules that didn’t exactly encourage free thinking and self-expression. You may have been shamed into good behavior. You may have been discouraged from following your dreams simply because your parents didn’t believe in themselves, let alone in you. You may have had some experiences that reinforced that conditioning… …

What are Affirmations and How Can They Make Things Better?

What are Affirmations and How Can They Make Things Better?

Affirmations have a bad rap these days. You might think that it’s just a bunch of mindless self-help nonsense but in reality, affirmations are commands. People love to complain, but they will never tell you that they’re complainers – they’ll just tell you they’re stating the facts. “The weather sucks… my boss is a jerk… I can’t ever lose that last 10 pounds… my boyfriend is a loser…” On and on goes the litany of “obvious facts” that are really …

Change Your Life With Self-Mastery

Change Your Life With Self-Mastery

Self-mastery is something we imagine martial artists and monks have, after years and years of dedicated practice. You’re right. But anyone can develop self-mastery and take control of their life. It takes the right mindset, tools and yes, dedicated practice (but – it takes far less time than you think) Self-mastery gives you control over the one thing you CAN control in any situation: yourself. It allows you to move toward your goals with discipline, persistence and focus. It helps …
