Affirmation Statements

 

Affirmation statements can be very helpful in “programming in” new attitudes, thoughts and feelings in order to be successful in what you want to achieve. Human nature does not need any coaching with negative thinking. These affirmations promote positive thinking and are more powerful in re-programming thoughts and feelings when you repeat them out loud, and not just “think” or whisper them. It is recommended that you select a few of these that touch you as most personal and relevant, and repeat them often, loudly and firmly, even though “the power” of the statement or the corresponding feeling may not be experienced at that moment. As you keep repeating them they will become part of your “programming” and mind-set, and the feeling will begin to match the words. Feel free to select the ones that touch you the most, and drop, postpone or ignore the others. Feel free to re-phrase any statement to make it more personal
