60 Affirmations for Authors, Writers, and Poets

Today’s Thought:
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

~ Aristotle

It takes a writer to understand the profound sense loneliness and mission felt by another writer. Few careers or passions guarantee more hours of angst-ridden solitude than writing. The job of pulling pictures from the void and translating them into words on a page for the world to see is daunting. Our reward is connection with the reader and, for some, the financial success that comes from connecting with many readers.

Whether your audience is yourself, a small circle of friends, or the wide world, every writer faces the blank page and must keep himself or herself motivated to keep the momentum going and insights flowing. May these affirmations assist you in achieving just that!

Some are available as mp3 downloads on my website. Others have been posted on Twitter. Many are posted here for the very first time anywhere.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the commitment to do it. Great and successful authors face the same challenge you do. Here are a couple of quotes.

E.B. White said, “”A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die
without putting a word to paper.”

Dan Brown was quoted in a 2009 NPR interview, “I still get up every morning at 4 a.m. I write seven days a week, including Christmas, and I still face a blank page every morning. … My characters don’t really care how many books I’ve sold.”

If you’ve been writing without the results you want, keep writing. Your best writing lies ahead of you and your audience is eagerly waiting!

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

From Ray’s Desk…
 
Hello, TAS friends
 
The past month has witnessed two major natural disasters in Asia. It’s an odd conundrum that the worst events bring out the best in the human spirit. People and nations around the world are mobilizing to help the people of Myanmar and China.
 
I think the reason these tragic events stir us so and bring out our best is that they remind us that we really are all in this together. We may differ politically, religiously, or economically. On ordinary days, those issues seem to matter so much.
 
However, when faced with unimaginable destruction and suffering, we seem to instinctively pull together. Maybe, in those moments, we are jolted awake to the fact that behind all our egoic masks and facades we are all subject to the same unpredictable whims of existence.
 
Such events can drive us to depression and withdrawal or engagement and enlightenment. They can create the thought that life is short and meaningless or that life is short and oh so precious.
 
There are circumstances beyond our control, but our thoughts and actions are always within our control.  When we realize that simple fact we are empowered and energized to pick up and move on from tragedy in our lives and in the world.
 
Stay inspired!

The Affirmation Spot Partners with Feed The Children
 
 
There are so many children who suffer on this planet every day. Sometimes it is the result of natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina, the recent typhoon in Myanmar, or the Chinese earthquake. In other places, it is due to war, poverty,and other political conditions.  
 
Founded in 1979, Feed The Children now has a presence in all 50 U.S. states and in more than 60 countries around the world. FTC delivers water and beverages, food, medicine, clothing, and much more – the necessities of life – to children and their families in distress.
 
The primary objective of The Affirmation Spot is to help people. The affirmations and other digital products we offer focus on improving the mental and spiritual aspects of our being. However, we cannot overlook the real, material needs of people.
 
That is why I am proud to announce a new special project in partnership with Feed The Children. I hope this pilot program will be the beginning of a long relationship with FTC.
 
Here is how it works.
 
May 15, 2008 – August 31, 2008
 
The Affirmation Spot will donate $.05 US for every $0.49 affirmation sold and $.10 US for every $0.79 or higher priced item sold to Feed The Children.
 
That means you can now help others as you are helping yourself. You get the affirmations and other positive thought products you want and you are helping Feed The Children too.
 
We will be providing monthly updates (on www.theaffirmationspot.com) on how much is donated through this program. Of course, the program is only as successful as we make it.
 
Together we can help children around the world.

Tips
 
The Tips section offers updated information on the website and helpful tips to using affirmations.
  • Newest Affirmations – The Affirmation Spot has a new link on the side menu called Newest Affirmations. This section provides links to the newest affirmations on the website and the dates they are posted.
  • Passive Listening – Listening to your affirmations passively is a great way to infuse them into your self-talk without your conscious mind interfering as much. Listen while you work or do other activities that require most of your attention. By the same process that helps you learn the words to a song you didn’t know you were listening to, you will find your affirmations coming to mind more easily.
