People often ask if there’s a secret to using affirmations. “I tried saying affirmations and nothing happened,” they say.

Here’s the simple way get affirmations to work their magic. Well, simple to apply. It still takes repetition and belief.

Everyone have a glorious Sunday!

101 Uses for Affirmations

Today’s Affirmation

Whatever goal or dream I choose to pursue, I find success.

“You have the power to heal your life, and you need to know that. We think so often that we are helpless, but we’re not. We always have the power of our minds…Claim and consciously use your power.”

~Louise Hay

Affirmations are such an underutilized tool in our society. Many people have mistakenly associated them with just a few areas of life – self-development, recovery, or sales. The fact is they are a simple and effective tool for improving nearly any area of your life where you want to improve or acheive.

Affirmations are the thought part of the equation. They must be supported by action. Remember, a mind practicing empowered thinking is much more apt to take the actions that make dreams so.

Here are 101 ways to use affirmations to get you started.

Affirmation The Power of Thought

I was honored this afternoon to join my friend, Omar Faizi, on his show Watcher’s Talk. We had a wide-ranging discussion on the power of thought. Never in human history, has the potential of our thinking to transform or destroy our world and our lives been more evident.

We discussed some very practical ways to shift the direction of your life and our world.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

Are Affirmations Enough?

Are affirmations enough?

Nope. Not if they’re just rote words you say or read or listen to.

There are two ways affirmations do their work. There is power in “subconscious” affirmations delivered subliminally or listened while you sleep. This approach requires intense repetition, but given time, it can be very effective.

For some, that conscious skeptic or cynic can interfere with affirmation acceptance and belief. Going around that negative inner voice is great way to undermine that voice at its subconscious roots.

For affirmations recited or read or listened to consciously, they will be utterly ineffective if they’re mere words to you.

They must be words that carry the fire of belief and a deep commitment to see them achieved. They must stoke emotion and determination.

The key is to figure out which strategy is most effective for you – flooding your subconscious with better thoughts or consciously “practicing” with affirmations each day.

I’ve had success with both over the years, but others succeed with one or the other.

So, what’s the answer? Are affirmations enough? Affirmations are one tool in your mindset and spiritual development toolkit. Used correctly and appropriately for you, they are a workhorse for shifting your thinking, your perspective, and your life.

Wherever you are on your journey today, you are awesome!

Affirmations: Your Personal Ad Campaign

Advertisers in our planet spend more than a trillion dollars a year selling stuff to you and me.

They right smartly-worded copy meant to inspire us to action. They repeat the message over and over again.

Even a company like Coca-Cola that practically every human on the planet knows spends billions each year to keep them at the top in our minds.

Why do they do this? The short answer is it works. They are very effective at molding our perceptions, our behaviors, even our beliefs.

Everyone else is trying to sell you on something. Why aren’t you selling to yourself? Selling the life you see yourself living. Selling the goals you have for yourself. Selling yourself on, well, you.

There’s not a better investment you can make than a higher degree of confidence in you and your capabilities.

In a nutshell, that’s what affirmations are and why they’re so powerful. They are your pervades campaign to yourself.

Not everyone trying to sell you something has your best interests at heart, but by using affirmations you can put tour best interests front and center in your day and your life.

Just in case no one else reminded you today, you are awesome!
