How To Create Your Own Great, Personalized Affirmations

Using affirmations on a daily basis is a terrific way to boost the positives in your life.

I recommend it for everybody.

It's such a powerful tool to bring the changes you most desire into your world.

What are affirmations?

Well, they’re positive statements that you say out loud on a regular basis. The goal is to re-program your subconscious mind so you can remove any negative thoughts and destructive messages that prevent you from living your dreams. You are replacing the bad with the good.

Affirmations reinforce good behaviors and change ones that need changing.

Below, I will list how to create your own personalized affirmations.

  • To create positive and effective affirmations:

    1. An affirmation must be in the present tense.

    Your subconscious doesn't have the ability to accept a promise of future behavior. “I will eat healthy foods” doesn't give your subconscious a timeline or deadline to perform your promise to yourself.

    • Instead, state your affirmation as though it’s a behavior you already exhibit. “I always make healthy food choices” is a present tense statement your subconscious can accept as a fact.

    2. For affirmations to work properly, they must be stated in the first person.

    In other words, don't create an affirmation saying, “You must eat healthy foods.” In order for your affirmation to matter to your subconscious, it must be personal and use the word “I.”

    • “I will choose healthy foods every time I eat” is a personal statement your subconscious can apply to your own behavior.

    3. Finally, an affirmation must be stated in a positive manner.

    “I must stop eating junk food” sends your mind a distorted message; it interprets the same as “I eat junk food.” This type of statement will lead you in the opposite direction of your goal!

    • Instead, “I choose fresh, healthy snacks when I am hungry” is a positive statement telling your mind the exact desired behavior.
    • Tips:

      • You can write your affirmations on note cards and keep them with you in your purse or wallet. Whenever you have a few moments to spare, take them out and read them aloud.

      •  State the affirmations in a clear, firm voice with a smile on your face as you say them. This will help you become more aware of the positive vibrations of the affirmations, allowing them easier access to your subconscious mind.
      • Sample affirmations:

        • I enjoy exercising every day.
        • When I am free from the desire to smoke, I breathe clean, fresh air.
        • I have everything I need to be content and happy today.
        • I love eating nutritious fresh foods in healthy portions.

        Begin using affirmations by choosing a few short, clear statements about the things you'd like to see happen in your life.
