Learning how affirmations will change your life seems like magic but is really a simple law of nature. Not how affirmations could change your life, not might change your life, not can change your life. Just like water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and the earth revolves around the sun, the power of our minds guarantees that what we habitually tell ourselves will change our lives. And that is how affirmations will change your life!
How Affirmations Will Change Your Life
Our thoughts create who we think we are. This leads to our way of being on earth, what we do each day and how we experience the actions of others. And most of our thoughts are put there by others – parents, of course, are the first ones. Then there are siblings and extended family, teachers, friends, colleagues, doctors, pastors who usually have our best interests at heart. Less obvious but more nefarious are advertising and public relations attempts to program our minds and separate us from our money.
We all remember things we started hearing when we were very small….and believed them, just like we learned that water is wet and a hot stove will burn us. Cautions like “you’re going to break your leg if you keep jumping off the porch.” Praise like “you are the smart one in the family.” Assertions like “it’s really hard to get ahead in life,” “you’ll catch a cold if you don’t wear a sweater” or “our family can’t afford nice vacations” are taken as fact and it can be very hard to break away from limiting beliefs.
How Affirmations Will Change Your Life Beginning Today
Unconscious affirmations have created the life you have. Think about who you believe yourself to be. The younger you are, the likelier it is that most of it – smart, pretty, dumb, a good athlete, a klutz, etc – were all de fact affirmations programmed into you by others. You unconsciously reinforce these – both positive and negative – by the tape that is always running in your head. “I’m afraid to look for a new job.” “I’m not good enough for that promotion.” “Nobody likes me.” Believe it or not, 99% of adults have fleeting and sometimes persistent thoughts that “nobody likes me!”
Positive affirmations will change your life and here’s how. Start with an area that isn’t serving you, like your ability to earn money. You can’t stop thinking “I’m afraid to look for a new job” but you can add positive affirmations that can and will change your life. Try repeating this affirmation every morning:
- My confidence is my biggest asset in finding a job I love. Negative thoughts and negative suggestions have no power over any part of my mind or life.
That’s it. Just start the day off with the positive affirmation to replace your fears. Disarm your negative affirmations by affirming they have no power. That’s how affirmations will change your life. Seize them, use them and live them!
