The Power of Affirmations

What the Experts Think of Affirmations

Affirmations are like planting seeds in the ground. First they germinate, then they sprout roots, and then they shoot up through the ground. It takes some time to go from seed to a full-grown plant. And so it is with affirmations – it takes some time for the first declaration to the final demonstration. Be patient."
Two years ago I stepped up my commitment to use affirmations by spending my mornings writing, reading, and imagining them coming to life. It’s made an enormous difference in the quality of each day and I know it will for you, too. Start by creating five specific affirmations that either affirm what you want more of in your life or what you want less of. Then, write, read, and repeat them throughout the day."
If you plant flowers, you will get flowers. If you plant weeds, you will get weeds. And…if you don’t plant anything, you will usually still get weeds! The weeds will grow regardless. Weeds don’t need cultivation. It’s the same with your mind. If you let positive, productive and creative thoughts in, you will get positive, productive and create results out."
We become what we think about. If you change the way you think about things, you change the world you live in. An affirmation is just sort of a beginning step. It's a way of allowing yourself to retrain your mind and to create a habit. After all, the habit that we have that things are not going to work out and that things are terrible... is just habitual thinking."
