Construction Of Successful Positive Daily Affirmations

By Hamsa Cremers

Positive daily affirmations can be powerful for helping you achieve a positive outlook on life. The most important thing to remember about them is that they all have common components in them. If you look at some positive daily affirmations and take one at random, you will be able to analyze it and find the common thread that they all share. For example, look that statement "I am a positive influence to those around me". If you divide this statement up into its three core parts, you will find the ideal formula for creating your own positive daily affirmations.

Daily affirmations are statements said in the present tense that you reiterate daily. When used with intent, your daily affirmations can go beyond positive thinking and create lasting changes in your mind to help you to change your life.Simple daily affirmations like, "I am successful in my work" can be a great handy tool that we can use to reprogram our subconscious mind. Most successful people tend to devote at least 15 minutes a day, to practice his or her daily affirmations in a quiet and unobtrusive place. These are your private moments where you tell your subconscious mind what you want to achieve in your life.

There are also ways for you to subtly plant your daily affirmations such that you will automatically read to yourself while going through your everyday routine. You can easily stick affirmation cards which you have pre-written yourself on places like the bathroom mirror, the car's dashboard, your desk in the office, the refrigerator's door, the computer desktop, the phone's screensaver and other places that you will look at everyday.When writing or practicing daily affirmations, use words that are positive such as bright, capable, creative, strong, intelligent, beautiful, smart, giving, quick, peaceful, loving, successful and enjoyable. Combine these words into phrases that you can relate and understand easily. Examples of daily affirmations are such as, 'Have fun, be a WINNER' or 'Take the LEAD, be in CONTROL'.

You might want to extend these phrases into affirmation statements that you can repeat to yourself at ease and sounds believable. To make this daily affirmation process grow, write out thirty different statements for each day of the month. Affirmations are based on the reasoning that we create our own conditions and experienced through our feelings and thoughts.

One example of a daily affirmation statement that I personally used is, "Let me live each moment of this day attentively, consciously and intentionally, with an open mind and an open heart".The basic idea of practicing daily affirmations is to plant positive seeds of thought into your subconscious mind. By doing this you give yourself permission to grow, to change, to take risks, to rise up, and to create a better life for yourself. Its purpose is to create self-awareness by having your spirit guide your thoughts and actions throughout your life instead of having your past tape continue to run your life for you.

Positive daily affirmations have been a popular subject with people lately. You can find places all over the internet that will give you good examples of these affirmations. However, it can be a bit more difficult finding information on exactly what positive daily affirmations actually are. It is time to establish what affirmations are, as well as what they are used for.

One affirmation that I believe helps to improve one's self-esteem, over time, is the repetitive affirmation of "I like myself!" I suggest using that one, writing it down, and saying it out loud with good emotions, a lot daily. That one I suggest saying around sixty times daily with positive emotion.Another affirmation I like is "I feel great!" That one, I believe can make one feel better, and improve confidence over time. I suggest saying that one several times daily.Here's yet another affirmation to use, "I am confident". By saying it out loud daily, with positive emotion, and acting like we are confident, if we aren't yet, I believe that can help one to become more confident. Also by visualizing yourself as being confident, and feeling grateful, and thankful for it, and all other good things. Also act as if whatever you want, as if you already have it, because I believe that helps to put it deeper into the subconscious mind.

When I first started studying about affirmations over a decade ago, I was skeptical of them, but after time I started seeing real good positive results. That's where the practice of hope, and faith can come begin it, until one has a knowledge of something that's effective through repetitive use.I suggest even writing some daily affirmations on the mirror in the bathroom at home, because so it can be seen daily, and I encourage you to read the daily affirmations daily out loud.For self-esteem, and for, I believe, to do things really effectively, a person's self-esteem, plays a big part. One affirmation that I believe also helps to do that, is the daily affirmation "I am number one!"

One of the key benefits of positive daily affirmations is that you will draw like-minded people to you. An interesting exercise to do sometime is watch two different people interact. If one has positive thoughts in their mind, while the other has negative thoughts, the negative thinking person will tend to walk away from the positive thinker. This is a classic case of the old adage "misery loves company". The truth of the matter is that if a person is unhappy, generally they don't want to be around people who are happy. However, other people who use positive daily affirmations will group together since they all share a positive outlook on things. This entire group of people will draw off of the positive energy of each other, in turn strengthening their own good feelings. Before long, you have an entire group of people using positive daily affirmations that are walking around in a virtual euphoria.

Remember, it is believed that the more positive, enthusiastic the emotions are when the affirmations are repeated out loud, the quicker it goes to the subconscious mind.I believe the subconscious mind, is like a large computer, (but way better) that is always working, always thinking. Why don't you take more advantage of it, and use daily affirmations, if you don't already do so? What do you want? What weaknesses do you want to be made stronger? Write them down as daily affirmations, and persevere, and never give up! Remember, to write your affirmations in the affirmations as if you already possessed, what you want. For whatever traits you already possess, I believe they can be made even better through the daily affirmations done the right way.The subconscious mind is more open to suggestions right after a person wakes up, and right before they go to sleep. Those are actually the best times to say the daily affirmations, because of that.
