In this article i will tell you how to use affirmations effectively and successfully.

using positive affirmations effectively and successfully

I am sure you have seen these little balls children play with which can be filled with water. The ball floats on the surface of the water as long as its empty but when the child fills the ball with water the ball starts sinking.

Now What if that ball had a little hole that forced it to accumulate water inside it? Certainly the ball will keep sinking even if the child kept dragging it above the water.

So what does this has to do with using positive affirmations effectively?
The affirmations that you use are exactly like the child's attempts to bring the ball above the water. Your negative thinking patterns is the hole that will always let the ball sink.

The ball is your mental state, when its above the water then you will feel good about yourself and when it sinks you will think badly of yourself.

Now the reason affirmations never work with most people is that they never attempt to change their negative thinking patterns and they just focus on repeating the affirmations.

This is how to use affirmations successfully

Based on the previous concepts you must stick to the following steps if you ever want to use affirmations effectively and successfully:

  • Fix your negative thinking patterns first: If the negative thinking patterns remained there they will shorty bring you back to the state you were in before repeating the affirmations. In the Solid Self confidence program i said that some negative thinking patters can rob a person his self confidence over time just because they repeat themselves over and over
  • Never deceive yourself: If you lack self confidence then don't say affirmations such as "I am confident" because a voice will reply from the back of your mind telling you "If you are really confident then why were you so anxious yesterday?". If you want to use affirmations effectively then never depend on self deception but instead remind yourself of the good qualities you already have.
  • Don't sleep: I know people who repeat affirmations then wait for the magic to happen. This world wasn't designed for those who sleep but it was designed for those who work. Use affirmations to motivate yourself but in the same time do as much actions as you can to improve your life and you will feel good about yourself
