I have gathered these from a number of sources over the years, from books, from coaches, from life, from the ether. I can’t really take credit for these (only the images!), but I find them helpful and have put them into various categories to make them easier for you to sort through. If I know a specific author of an affirmation, I will credit them!
How to use affirmations?
Write them down. Speak them out loud, even if they feel uncomfortable or untrue at first. Say them often: at least once a day. Set reminders on your phone, or set them as your wallpaper.
Make them your own. Choose ones that are believable, that you can wrap your head around.
For example, “I am a millionaire” may seem wayyyy out there, but maybe you can feel into “I have a growing savings account” or perhaps, “I am finally debt-free!”
From someone who had $30,000 student loans and another $5000 in consumer debt, I can tell you, being debt-free and having a growing savings account is a pretty freaking amazing feeling. But if you tell yourself, “I’ll never get out of debt,” then you won’t even try.
Catch yourself when you say those negative things, and turn it around. What’s the harm in trying? You just might start to feel good
BTW, bear with me! This template is from a menu, which I think is kind of hilarious.
