What is a daily affirmation and why would you use it?
Basically, a daily affirmation is something you can do each day where you say to yourself, or write down who and what you want to be. I recommend both. Writing it down each morning is very powerful.
It is basically creating your future.
You are manifesting the person that you want to be. By thinking about it, saying it, writing it down, visualizing it, feeling it, and by reminding yourself that that is the person that you are. Some of the benefits of writing down daily affirmation is basically you can create your future, you can create the person that you want to be.
For example, you might write something down if you have goals in health and fitness. It’s something might be like
“I am the fittest, healthiest and happiest I have ever been”
“I am successful, happy, strong and capable of achieving anything”
Now, when you start to write these things down each morning and then repeat it to yourself, it begins to engrain this in to your subconscious mind.
It then reminds you throughout the day and push you into the head space or the mindset of the person you want to be.
Therefore, when you’re faced with decisions or challenges throughout the day, for example, of whether you’re going to exercise, whether you’re going to stick to eating healthier food versus eating a tonne of junk food, or if something stressful happens, you are already pre-programmed, for the day, to act and think and make decisions like that fit and health person you affirmed yourself to be that morning, as well as be happier.
It’s an extremely powerful tool you can use to basically turn yourself into the person you want to be; achieve the goals you want to achieve; and live a happier, more successful, and fulfilled life. It’s something that I’m a huge fan of and I highly recommend giving it a go. Such a simple technique like this that takes only a minute or two each day, can allow you to achieve goals and move towards the life that you want to live.
Another recommendation is after writing it down, or in times you are doubting yourself, repeat your affirmation to yourself 10 times over out loud.
Keep reminding yourself of who you are, and what you want in your life.
To me, daily affirmations are such a simple method but they can have such a great positive impact on your life that I will absolutely highly recommend doing it. It’s basically working on your psychology, it’s working on your mindset, then you can also work into your physical self. Whether it’s based around your work, business, health, relationships, finance, strength or anything for example, you might have affirmations around things like, “I am successful, I am comfortable financially,” things like that, and then you would tend to act, behave, and make decisions around what a person who has those things in their life does, for example.
I use daily affirmations every morning.
I write down things like, “I am successful, I am healthy, I am happy and I am capable of achieving anything.”
So, during the day, when I’m working and running the business and a big challenge or stressful situation pops up, or even in the middle of a hard workout etc if I have thoughts of doubt or stress begin to creep in, very quickly the morning affirmation takes over and rather then doubt my capabilities, lose self belief, get highly stressed or emotional and make bad decisions I remember my daily affirmation. That self belief takes over, confidence rises, stress dissipates and progress is made.
“I am capable of anything, I am capable of anything, I am capable of anything.”
I repeat it 3 times over in my head – and before I know it, the mindset is completely shifted to take on any challenge.
Whatever it is, whatever situation, hurdle or problem arises, we can get through it. We just need to believe in ourselves and trust the process.
There’s always a way to get around it or fix it, whatever it is, and this mindset lowers stress levels straight away, gets you into a clearer state of mind and allows you to work through that problem and be happier.
I have found this to be super, super powerful, so that’s why I thought I would share a little bit about affirmations and my personal experience with them over the last six months of writing them down each day and using them.
Some days I’ll miss a day here or there, but over time, when you continually remind yourself and use this technique, it becomes engrained.
MINDSET IS EVERYTHING
So, if you can use daily affirmations to improve your mindset, and improve your success, I thought it would be valuable to share this with you and I hope it serves some value and can help you guys get a little bit more success in 2019.
