Don’t be afraid to use affirmations to help you eliminate negative habits, improve certain traits, or even add them.
Positive affirmations can be used to switch your mind and challenge you to focus on the positive and less on the negative.
Imagine manifesting all you need in life to bring about positive, permanent change so you can live your best life.
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are words and sentences with power that encourage you to push forward with your personal and professional goals and dreams. They are messages and “affirming” words you say about yourself, your abilities and what is possible for your future.
They are also a great tool for shattering most negative self-thoughts and limiting beliefs that stand between you and your success. Remember that a little negative self-talk today can sabotage even your best efforts in the future.
Strong affirmations support you emotionally and practically by influencing both your conscious and subconscious thoughts.
In the same way that hypnotherapy can influence your subconscious mind and support you in your efforts to stop smoking, lose weight, or boost your confidence, so too can affirmations.
I personally use affirmations every day as part of my daily planning activities…I focus on one phrase or positive philosophy that frames my success for the day.
If you are wondering if affirmations can work for you as well, start by evaluating what areas in your life you feel stuck or powerless. Then get clear on who you want to become so you can move forward confidently into the future.
