Everyone talks about goal setting in January, but by February, you don’t see much regarding goals posted at all! So for the next six weeks, I’ll be posting a weekly blog post to help you find success this year. Subscribe here to have the blog posts sent directly to your inbox!
Affirmations are sayings or phrases that you repeat to yourself, so they become part of you. You can either say these statements out loud during meditation or throughout your day. Alternatively, you can write out that repetitive statement. The more you engage your senses when using affirmations, the faster your processes them.
This type of positive self-reinforcement works, but it takes about 30 days for them to start sinking in. So, don’t give up after a few days. Once they begin working, continue with them daily for even better results.
Some people like to use the same set of mantras each day while others will use one success mantra and change it every day for the 30-day period. What affirmation(s) that you use isn’t important. The key is being consistent.
You will find plenty of resources online if you are stuck trying to come up with mantras to use. Simply do a search on affirmations or success mantras. Then decide on a time frame that works for you. Daily is best, but as long as you are consistent, you can be successful using affirmations every other day or even weekly. Space out your practice any more than that, though, and you probably will lose the effectiveness. You want to train your brain, and that requires frequent affirmations and repetition.
Here are some of my favorite affirmations:
