The Traditional Affirmation Dilemma – Monday September 10, 2007

The Traditional Affirmation Dilemma

Affirmations are an extremely powerful tool for creating and maintaining thoughts that support your goals in life. The question is not whether affirmations work, the science is overwhelmingly in on that point. Most people struggle and fail with affirmations when they cannot find the time to do the repetition required for affirmations to succeed.

Affirmations work much like a personal ad campaign. The only way Coca Cola alters your thinking about its products is to deliver its message repeatedly. The same goes for affirmations – your own personal ad campaign. For them to work, you have deliver the message over and over until it becomes part of the fabric of your thinking.

Traditionally, people used cards or the “mirror chat” to memorize and repeat their affirmations. But in our busy modern world, who has the time? Other people sign up for affirmation services that send affirmations daily through e-mail or by text message on their cell phone. These are great, but what about the repetition and do they really target the area of your life you are trying to impact? You have to write them down and repeat them or use them later. You’re basically back to cards or the mirror chat.

You need a way to get the repetition that allows affirmations to work and in a format that allows them to do it without disrupting your busy schedule.

Tomorrow I will discuss why audio affirmations are the solution for affirmations users with busy schedules and how modern technology like MP3 players allow you to take your affirmations with you anywhere you are and use them whenever you need to in your life.

Have a peaceful and prosperous Monday!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
