How to use affirmations to achieve all your goals

What if you could wake up every morning with that kind of a mental state? Well you can. It’s called the power of ‘affirmations’.

An affirmation is a statement that describes a goal in its already completed state. For example: “I am happily driving my Porsche 911 to my beautiful beach house on the Ka’anapali coast of Maui.”

Basically it comes down to this: repeat your affirmations in your head, and then actually feel it until you believe it. While you’re experiencing it, your subconscious can’t distinguish what’s real and what’s not. Once you open your eyes your subconscious notices the gap and automatically finds the way to close it!

Follow these guidelines for creating effective affirmations:
1. Start with the words ‘I am’
2. Use the present tense
3. State it in a positive
4. Keep it brief
5. Make it specific
6. Include an action word ending with –ing
7. Include at least one dynamic emotion or feeling word
8. Make affirmations for yourself, not others
9. Optional: add ‘or something better’

But what if your mind keeps telling you: "Who are you kidding?” Just welcome the limiting belief and let it be as best as you can. Then ask yourself, would I rather have this feeling or would I rather be free? Then simply let it go. Repeat until you feel free!
