1. Make sure your affirmations are written in the FIRST PERSON.
When writing out your affirmations make sure you start with ‘I’ or ‘I am’. This automatically gives you affirmation an identity, and that identity is you. It makes the statement personal powerful motivators for self-change.
2. ALL Affirmations are to be written as a POSITIVE!
Always, ALWAYS, always, state your affirmations in the positive. So, for example, instead saying, “I don’t want to be fat anymore”, reframe to be “I am ecstatic to be looking at myself in the mirror loving my body and happy with my weight”
3. Make sure your affirmations have an EMOTIONAL drive.
I want you to fill your affirmations with feeling. Using emotional words in affirmations is important, because of the deep association we have between emotional words and our experiences. So instead of “I only eat healthy food,” which sounds suspiciously chore-like, try: “I feel vibrant and alive when I make healthy choices for me.”
4. (My favourite) Make sure your affirmations are written as if they are already happening, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW.
Write your affirmations as if they are already happening. This means affirming, “I am positive and motivated,” instead of “Three months from now, I will be positive and motivated.”
