Affirmations are positive phrases of what you would like to be or like to have in life. They keep your mind focused on the end goal you desire to reach. They help you to overcome obstacles and doubts that distract you from your goals such as fear, negativity, false reality appearing real, misconceptions, and old thoughts and beliefs that can easily derail you from becoming and doing what you want in life.
It’s like the childhood story of The Little Engine That Could. To give her strength to conquer the mountain she repeated the affirmation “I think I can” “I think I can” over and over until she made it over the mountain.
To create an affirmation, write down what you would like to have or be. Then add “I am” or “I have” before your desire. Such as “I am happy” or “I have a loving relationship”.
For those goals that seem very hard to reach add a transition statement such as “I am in the process of” or “I am starting to”. Such as “I am in the process of being happy” or “I am starting to have a loving relationship”. This is a true statement for you since that is the direction you are heading.
Repeating affirmations keep you focused in the direction you want for yourself and your life. Like The Little Engine That Could soon you will be saying, “I knew I could.” “I knew I could.”
