Why Daily Affirmations Are One Of The Crucial Keys To Success

Repeating A Statement Over & Over?

I had heard about daily affirmations probably all my life, however, I really did not take them seriously and I didn’t understand why they would work.  It didn’t make any sense to me why repeating a phrase over and over again would actually make it come true.   It was only after I entered the network marketing industry and decided to be “teachable”, did I start to understand why daily affirmations were imperative to my success.

Quantum Physics Convinced Me

I actually did a lot of research and study to convince my left brain why and how daily affirmations work.  After studying Quantum Physics, I learned that my thoughts create how I feel, and how I feel determines what I do, and what I do created my results!  Then when my results were great, I had even better thoughts and I was even more excited.  Then if I had excited thoughts, I felt excited, which created excited actions, which created exciting results!!  Wow, that was simple! 8-O

Change Thoughts Pro-Actively

Here’s a diagram we created to see how this works if we want to change our thoughts pro-actively:

Most of my life, I was in a re-active mode because I didn’t understand how this process worked.  I used to have the same thoughts everyday, which created the same feelings, which created the same action, which created the same results!  Then when I was not happy with the results, I would be sad, and this repeated over and over again in my life.  I believe it was Albert Einstein who said “The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”.

It Really Works

One of the things I used to say to myself and others was “when I sniff food, I gain 5 lbs”!  Well, no wonder I had a big problem with food and my weight. (click on this link to read about my history with food)  Once I solved my weight challenge, I realized I was saying “no matter what I eat, I can’t gain an ounce”, and it’s true today, I don’t gain any weight no matter what I eat!!  Hmmm :lol:

It sounds too simple huh?  However, please try it because it works like crazy!  I started to write new affirmations and say them over and over and over!  I would put signs up all over my house and in my car until the affirmations would run in my subconscious automatically.  They really work and over the years, so many of my affirmations have come true!

Try It

So, here’s something to try, pick one trait or thing you want to change and write an affirmation statement.  For example, “I am a great leader, I am a great speaker, I am healthy, etc”.  Write it down on a card and put it in your wallet.  Print signs with your statement on it and post it in areas where you will see it many times daily. Say your affirmations at least every hour and any other time you remember.  Soon, it will be a recording in your mind and it will just go off anytime you are not consciously thinking of something.  Then watch what happens over time!  One day you’ll wake up and see that you have become your affirmation!  It’s really cool!  The key is consistency each and every day until the affirmation becomes a habit to your subconscious.

Another Affirmation Tool

Here’s another way I would help myself to affirm specific traits.  I would find videos or audios which would assist me with my thoughts.  Here’s an example of one of my favorites.  Watch it in higher definition if you can, take 3 long deep breaths before you start, and see how you feel as you relax and just take the message in:

Your Feelings Affect Your Results

Doesn’t that make you feel pretty good?  It is programming your thoughts with abundant affirmations, which then create abundant feelings, which will create abundant actions, which will create abundant results!

    Your always right on Kellie. I believe in the power of the sub-conscious mind. I was joking about my age when I greeted people and my Mentor reminded me that my sub conscious does not have a sense of humor, so if I joke about how old I am, my mind will start believing it and Poof I will start being old.

    It is so true what you say about positive affirmations. I was never taught this until I too entered the Home based business. Positive affirmations are a very powerful part of retraining your subconscious mind. And it makes you feel Great!

    Hi Kellie,
    Daily affirmations truly are powerful and the more scientists learn about our brains, the more we understand why vibrations in the form of words and thoughts impact us. It seems like today is my day to discover posts in the blogosphere through the Tribe about positive energy and re-assessing where I have been and where I am going. I am so grateful to people like you who continue to write valuable posts like this one that inspire me to do something simple every day.
    Wonderful!
