No matter what your goal is in life, daily affirmations can help you attain success. Every great act begins with an idea. Affirmations will help to take those ideas and start to shape them into a reality. Highly successful people have practiced the art of affirmations for years. They know that in order to make a habit of something they must first convince their brain of this new idea.
If you believe it, you can achieve it. And that’s the hardest part of the challenge. Affirmations aren’t just empty words that you say in front of a mirror. You must believe in the affirmations that you are repeating in order for them to work. Your mind must be able to make a connection with what you are saying and what it encounters daily. If it is filled with self-doubt, you must quiet these doubts and convince your brain that what you are telling it, can and will happen.
Self-doubt is why many women find it difficult to rely on affirmations. However, affirmations are a great way to place a visible target in your mind to keep you focused on your goal. Your ability to believe in yourself is the key to your success. While you know for a fact that people can and do lose weight, there is self-doubt within you that says you failed before…be careful you might fail again.
In order to achieve something as difficult as changing your diet, you must first believe that it is possible. You need to affirm these beliefs by making positive declarations about the success of your diet program. By repeating these affirmations you train your brain to think to shrink.
I love to eat healthy foods.
My body looks beautiful because I exercise.
I am becoming stronger every day.
I will exercise for an additional 15 minutes today.
I feel confident and beautiful.
These affirmations will make you feel beautiful and strong, they give absolute commands that your brain will find easy to follow. If you repeat these daily to yourself, your mind will replace these positive phrases with old negative thoughts that invade your brain.
If you want success in your life, take a tip from the ultra successful people who know how to get things done. Try daily affirmations for a week or two and see if they work for you. Believe it to achieve it.
