Positive Affirmations and What They Can do For You

Jun 14, 2008
What are affirmations and what can they do for you? This is a common question and one that is usually asked by someone that has heard of positive affirmations and wondering what they are all about.

Affirmations truly do have the power to change your life, as long as you want to change your life and believe in the affirmations that you choose or create. If you have any negative thoughts or deal with negativity or stress during your day, positive affirmations can help you.

So, What are Affirmations?

Good question! You may have heard of positive affirmations in the past, but here's the scoop: affirmations are simply positive statements for you to use in your life when you need to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts and actions.

It may sound really odd to you when you are first introduced to the concept, but it works. For instance, when you are really stress you may find that positive affirmations can help you deal with the stress. An affirmations such as, "I can deal with anything that comes my way," is one that may help you.

How does this work?

When you are feeling stressed you can repeat this several times and it replaces the negative thoughts such as, "I don't think I can do this" with positive ones like: "I can accomplish anything I set my mind to." The more you say, or reaffirm, this statement the more power it will have because there will simply not be any room left for the negativity.

Another question people ask is: why should I use affirmations? You should use them because they can change your life for the better. Life is too short to get caught up in negativity and self doubt. With free affirmations you can deal with all of the stressors and negativity in your life in a much more positive manner. Instead of always thinking that you can't do something or that you aren't good enough, you'll replace these thoughts with the idea that you can do anything. If you repeat this to yourself often enough, it will become your truth.

When you use affirmations you will become a more positive person, you simply can't help it! When you are more positive you will think better and feel better and the people around you will notice it. You'll find that you are more enjoyable to be around and that you generally have more fun, too. It has to do with the law of attraction, if you are positive and you put positive energy out there positive energy will be returned to you. With free positive affirmations you can make the most out of every single moment of your life.

Now that you don't have to ask, "what are affirmations," you can put them to use for you. Give it a shot, you may find that they work really well for you. If they do, why not share free positive affirmations with your friends? Let them in on your secret of leading a positive life. You'll feel good about yourself, so why not share the positive feelings?
