How to Use Affirmations to Amazing Effect

Updated on February 15, 2014


Do you feel your life is in a rut? Do you find that things just don't go your way...despite your best efforts? Are you frustrated at your lack of progress...even after putting in so much work in the first place? least you're taking the right steps now by looking into affirmations. You really CAN change your life with the use of effective affirmations.

Each and every one of us has the power to change things and to make our lives richer, better, happier and more rewarding

You can use these general affirmations or you can write your own to suit your own personal needs. Remember to keep your affirmations in the present tense...and follow this 40 day plan...and you will see the changes for yourself


40 Day Plan

  • Get your first set of affirmations together and say them in the morning before going out and facing the day...then get your second set and say them before going to bed at night
  • Say them out loud whilst looking in the mirror at yourself. It's important to hear your own voice and it's highly effective to see yourself as you repeat the powerful messages to yourself
  • Repeat each affirmation very clearly...THREE times
  • Keep it up for 40 days and you will soon notice the benefits and the changes
  • If you miss a's back to square one...start the 40 day plan again...but you're not going to miss a day...are you? It's worth sticking to this plan if you want to reap the rewards...right?

      I use affirmations such a lot and I agree with the advice here. Repetition is most definitely the key to making the most of using affirmations. Excellent work, Sir
