Stop-You-Dead Affirmations That Are Controlling Your Life

Something Eastern always seems wise...

What the hell have you been affirming? Because it sure is showing in your life!

So, you think affirmations don't work, or at least not as well as you'd like? Well, guess again. The affirmations you use the most are working in your life all the time. They are manifesting exactly as you proclaim them. Unfortunately, here are the ones you use probably more than any others. They have served you in the very ways you think you wouldn't like. But you keep repeating them and consequently, you keep reaping--and perhaps suffering from--their sometimes overwhelming results:

  • That won't work.
  • I/we can't afford it.
  • It's never been done before.
  • Let's form a committee.
  • Here we go again!
  • We're not ready.
  • There isn't time!
  • My/our family/friends/organization/church/school/spouse won't like/try/do it.
  • It's hard/difficult/impossible.
  • I'm/we're scared.
  • I'm too fat/lazy/old/ugly/stupid/ignorant.
  • I don't want to.

These are the "stop you dead" affirmations. You use a few of them every day, sometimes every hour. What are you going to do about it?

As long as you continue to use these deadlies, you will continue to manifest them. So, my most intense advice:

Thanks for the great comments.

All those negative affirmations have been serving us so well because they are habitual, on automatic. Then, when we try to eliminate them with positive ones, they resist us. Kinda like politics.
