Affirmations can help shift your thoughts – if you’re open to the possibility. Some people believe that they are a joke while others live and breathe by them.

I first began exploring affirmations in 2011, when I was facing some huge changes in my life and struggled to believe that I could, in fact, be financially independent and move out of the state of co-dependency. I started with a daily affirmation that I journaled about in my art journal to really tune into why the affirmation is true for me. I still use them today but perhaps not as often now.

For me, affirmations are the initial steps I take to help me transform my negative thinking about myself, my business, my family or anything else that has me feeling frustrated and I don’t feel confident about.

Affirmations are a simple tool to transform your mindset if you are willing to dedicate the work to it, pay attention to your thinking process and actively engage in reframing your thoughts. I fully believe that self-awareness is critical in our personal development and growth to become the best version of ourselves.

For years, I’ve said to myself that I was a reject because I grew up in foster care and therefore couldn’t be successful with my goals + dreams. And the more repeat something to yourself, the more it must be true. But in fact, you have the power to change your internal dialogue so that you can start attracting more of that into your life.

Think of an affirmation as the seed of a tree, the more you nurture it the bigger, stronger and confident it becomes.  While without the positive nurture, it will simply not sustain the storms and other challenges it is exposed to.

Creating your own affirmations is a simple process of the following:

I am ________________________________________________________________

I will ________________________________________________________________

I can ________________________________________________________________

Fill the blank with a positive statement. 

The key element is that it is in the present moment!

I am successful.

I will achieve my dreams.

I can take this action (whatever action that is for you).

Now what?

Repeat the affirmation in the mornings for 5-10 minutes, throughout the day and/or write it in your journal. For me writing really affirms my positive statement. But more importantly, I really like to explore of why this is true so that I can fully believe the statement.

Make this a daily practice in the morning and perhaps at bedtime.

The change won’t happen overnight but giving it some time, watch your world unfold with positivity and attracting your dreams because you are allowing the opportunity for possibilities.

To make things easier, I’ve created a 21-Day Affirmation Journal to support you in shifting your thinking. Enter your information below and it will be in your inbox shortly.
