Repetition, repetition, repetition! It’s one of twin engines of affirmation success along with belief. The purpose of an affirmation is different than most information you take in daily. Typical information is received, stored, and used.
You don’t need to develop a strong emotional connection to 2 + 2 = 4. You memorize it and use it as needed. The same is true with directions to a restaurant. Affirmations are different. Hearing or reading or saying them once and thinking, “I got it,” is not how they work.
The reason repetition is critical with affirmations is because of their purpose. They’re meant to dislodge unproductive or negative thoughts that have repeated for years. They’re meant to inspire change and action which means there’s an emotional component.
Finally, affirmations are meant to inspire mastery. You don’t get mastery by doing something once. You get mastery by repeating until the thought, the words, and the action literally become who you are. With affirmations, 100 times is better than once. 1000 tines is better still.
Have a fantastic day and put your mind on your side.
