What if there’s a way that requires little effort and focused intent for only 5 minutes a day that can change your life for the better, would you be interested to find out what it is?
The method is very simple, yet extremely powerful.
It can literally change your life, and it can do so quickly.
Are you prepared to put your judgements aside and test this method? If you are, would you be willing to repeat a handful of carefully designed sentences for 90 days?
Affirmations can bring about a dramatic change in any area of your life.
If you’ve heard of visualisation, affirmations are similar to that; the difference is, with visualisation you see images, with affirmations you say words, yet, as with visualisation, you involve your 5 senses.
In other words, when you affirm a certain goal, you will want to see, smell, hear, taste, and touch the outcome as already achieved.
There are various ways to repeat your affirmations: you can say them silently, out loud, or you can read or write them. I believe the choice is yours, although writing your affirmations or saying them out loud can be more effective. Find the method that works best for you, where you can involve as many of your senses as you can and remain committed to it.
It is best to start your affirmations with the words ‘I am,’ for they are the 2 most powerful words in the language. Such statements are: “I am a creative person” or “I am confidently making a great presentation to my regional managers.”
Some people do not feel ready to use the ‘I am’ statements.
They may start off with ‘I can,’ for those 2 words represent a statement of probable change. For example, “I can be confident in making this presentation.”
The third powerful way of utilising affirmations is using the ‘I will’ intent. When using ‘I will’ you are declaring a statement of the positive change that you intend to achieve. An example of this is, “I will make an amazing presentation to my regional managers and they will love it.”
Did you notice something very important?
All the affirmations are stated in the positive: they are focused on your intention and not on what you are afraid of and what you don’t want to happen. So, how can we put all of this together in an effective way? Come up with 5 to 10 affirmations and write each one on a separate index card.
Repeat each one about 10 times using as much emotion and conviction as possible, utilising your 5 senses, then move on to the next. Repeat the process until you have gone through all your affirmations.
If, as you repeat them, you find that you wish to change any of them, go ahead and do so. Keep changing the affirmations until they feel absolutely perfect for you. Then, and only then, start the 90-day countdown.
Keep the index cards on you and repeat them throughout the day.
Affirmations do work when done correctly. What a great and simple way to change your life for the better.
