A wise man once shared the secret you can use to create your own destiny. He said, “Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.”
Affirmations are an effective way to help change your mind set. An affirmation is a statement in present tense which is positive in nature. It may not be something you truly believe in about yourself but wish to see as the real you. Write them down and read and re-read them a number of times in a day. Affirmations have a strange way of helping us change our life. They work on our sub-conscious brain and give it the power to turn our thoughts into our reality. If you write them as wishes or hopes, they will remain as wishes or hopes but if you reinforce them as facts they become your facts.
Your list of affirmations would be personal to you and would have what is your core need to be. However there are a few universal affirmations which if you add to your list, you would benefit greatly. Here are an auspicious number of examples of the evergreen.
- I am a confident and self assured person.
