If you are interested in the power of affirmations, then you’ve come to the right place. I sincerely believe in the positive force that is created through repeated affirmations. I like to say mine first thing in the morning, before I start my day. These declarations provide the boost that I need to get out there and make something wonderful happen.
While I will admit that there are many things that are out of my control, many incidents in life in which I have no say so whatsoever. But for all the things that I can direct whether by my mind or my actions, I want to take the wheel and drive. Because the goals I have are not easy to attain, I need the positive effects of affirmations to help me stay focused to succeed.
What goals have you set for yourself today and how will you go about achieving them? Do you believe whole-heartedly that you can reach your goals; that you can attain success? Shout it out with daily affirmations. These positive words of acknowledgment and praise will challenge your mind and help to bring about desirable results.
Daily affirmations are easy to fit into your busy schedule. All you need is about 5 minutes and the benefits can last throughout the day. Set aside this small amount of time, preferably in the morning. It’s best to repeat your affirmations in front of a mirror and look at your reflection as you say them. You must believe it to achieve it.
So, if your goal is to lose weight then you should repeat affirmations such as:
I am losing weight.
I am eating healthy foods.
I will not overeat today.
I will eat 3 servings of fruit today.
My clothes look better because I am losing weight.
I will eat 3 servings of vegetables today.
My body is my temple.
I feel sexy when I eat healthy foods.
I feel confident that I can lose all the weight that I want.
Sound simple enough? Affirmations are one of the easiest parts of dieting and getting in shape. All you need to do is set aside a few minutes every day. Write out some affirmations that you can believe in and start repeating them to yourself. Put it to the test, but remember in order to get positive results, you must believe that these affirmations that you say are possible in your life. If you don’t believe it can ever happen, then it probably won’t happen.
Start your day on a positive note, set yourself up for success at the beginning of each day. Just 5 minutes of daily affirmations can be the difference between a weight loss program that works and one that does not.
