When you are writing out your affirmations there are a few rules:
- Make sure your affirmations are written in 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.
- ALL Affirmations are to be written in the POSITIVES!
Always, ALWAYS, always state your affirmations in the positive. So, for example, instead saying, “I no longer want to be fat,” you might say, “I love my body, and my size and am happy with how I feel and look”.
- 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 emotion 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.”
- (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.”
