Affirmations are great tools that can help you overcome fear, build your confidence, develop an abundance mind-set (John 10:10) and more. The problem is that many people aren’t sure exactly how to write effective affirmations. Do they always have to be in present tense? Can they contain “negative” words like can’t, won’t, not, and so on?
There are plenty of differing opinions on the right and wrong ways to write effective affirmations, but the bottom line is that an affirmation can be considered effective if it works for YOU! The whole point of affirmations is to shift your thoughts and emotions to a more positive place so you feel more confident, happy, secure, abundant, or anything else you’re trying to accomplish. Frankly, the same skill set that creates negative, faithless thinking is the same skill set used to create affirmations. If you have been talented in being your “own worst enemy” then you can also be a very good friend to yourself.
Stay tuned for the sample affirmations that are coming through this blog. Feel free to use them if they resonate with you. If not, try altering them slightly until they trigger the mind-set and emotional state you’re trying to attain. (More FREE Tools)
