How to Write Powerful and Positive Affirmations

Writing affirmations is a powerful and uplifting personal experience.  Affirmations are simply positive or negative statements that we make, as we go through life and many life challenges.

Our thoughts and feelings are what control our actions. Usually what we believe is how we are deep down inside.

Words are powerful and if you don’t use them correctly they have the power to shape you in ways you wouldn’t believe. Is this true for all statements? Not exactly, but those that we internalize do.

Writing and internalizing our affirmations become important in shaping or reshaping our habits of thought. When your thoughts change you become someone different.

How many times have you thought back to certain ways you used to act and thought to yourself now I could never be that person now? What if you had the ability to truly be and do anything your put your mind too?

Well you can, but it takes learning and practice.

We have all heard the saying from our parents “You can be anything you want to be can do anything you want to do.” They weren’t lying, but they didn’t tell you how you can do those things.

It all starts with your mind, your thought patterns, and your actions.

How to Write Powerful Affirmations

  1. Use the First Person- Majority of the time you should begin using “I” statements. ( I will…, I am…) These statements do not have to be true statements, but statements of a personal choice or a certain behavior you desire to portray. For example, “I earn (X) amount of dollars by this day.” Or “I am so happy and grateful for the positive uplifting things happening in my life.”
  2. Make them Declarative- Meaning leave out any adjectives or adverbs. Be brief and to the point. The objective is to make bold statements that come across as definite.
  3. Use Present Tense- “I am happy.” “I am 10 pounds lighter.” This is usually difficult for most people because it hasn’t happened yet and they have a hard time believing it putting into their mind self-doubt.
  4. Commit to Your Statements- Whatever you write down decide at that moment that it is what you are going to do and follow it every single day. Take no days off. If you do you must start over from day one. Even if you don’t believe what you are saying be/do it anyways. You are reshaping your mindset helping you to move forward in a powerful way each step you move forward. Read them daily and read them often…2-3 times a day. Eventually you will begin to believe it.

Begin immediately to take to necessary steps to reshaping your mind and reshaping your world. If there are things in your life you want to change you have to power to do so no matter what the situation.

Initially it’s not easy, because your habits need to be redirected into new habits. It all begins with your thinking.

When written properly affirmations can be an effective tool in creating the world you desire. Bringing forth the riches you seek mentally, emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually.
