6 Must-Dos to Create Positive Affirmations to Change Your Life

Affirmations are powerful statements you can use to make positive changes in your life. They use the power of your subconscious mind to create change and help you reach your goals and dreams. Below are the aspects you need to know to generate the most effective affirmations to change your life.

Must-Do #1: Choose PositivityThink Positive text illustration

You may not realize you’re already using affirmations all the time. The trouble is, most people tend to repeat negative statements like “I can’t do it,” “I’ll never get ahead,” or “life is hard.” Have a look at your own self-talk and see how often you’re using negative affirmations that keep you stuck in self-doubt and negativity.

You can choose to turn around your self-talk and build positive affirmations so that all your thoughts are supporting your life goals.

Must-Do #2: Keep Your Affirmations Short and Authentic

You can create powerful positive affirmations by making sure the language you use is focused and brief, using language that resonates with you personally. A simple, straightforward statement will be more effective than a long one, and when they are written in your authentic voice, they’ll be even easier to incorporate into your life.

Don’t use emotive language or words that have negative connotations. Focus on what you want and what you’d rather have MORE of in your life, a quality you want to develop and expand about yourself, rather than what you don’t want.

A positive weight loss affirmation, for example, is “I am slender,” not “I am not fat.” Even saying, “I am losing weight” is focusing on the negative.

Must-Do #4: Stick to the Present Tense

Use “I am” statements to focus your mind on what you want. Saying “I will” or “I want” pushes your goal out into the indefinite future and doesn’t inspire you to reach your goal now. Framing your affirmation as if it’s the truth now helps focus your energy and actions toward what your desired reality.

Think of how you want to feel when you reach your goal. Will you feel happy, grateful, relaxed? Choose words that create a powerful, positive image like “money is pouring into my life,” or “I feel strong and full of energy.” Imagine the numbers going up in your bank account, see yourself running that marathon, or buying new clothes that fit perfectly.

Must-Do #6: Build a positive affirmation habit

Positive affirmations are more powerful when they are repeated until they become part of your mindset. Make a commitment to yourself that you will repeat your affirmations out loud, at least three times a day. Schedule affirmation time in your schedule or set a reminder on your smartphone.

Feel relaxed and happy as you repeat your affirmations. Feel what it will be like when you achieve your goals.

When you focus your attention on what you want to be true in your life, you are much more likely to achieve it. Align your thoughts, feelings, and actions with your affirmations, so all your energy is flowing to achieving your goals.
