Just what is an affirmation? By Paul J. Meyer

Paul J. MeyerThe word “affirmation” is often misunderstood… and therefore, greatly neglected.

It is vitally important to know, and review if necessary, the ingredients of successful affirmations.

An affirmation is this:
A positive declaration stated in the first person and in the present tense that describes specifically what you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to have, and/or how you want to live your life.

To better understand — and thus apply — affirmations, look at each ingredient:

* positive
* a declaration or statement
* about yourself
* in the first person (I)
* in the present tense (I am)
* specific
* and about what you want to be, to do, to have, etc.

Now that you know how to make your own affirmations, use them to encourage, motivate, and change you for the better, enabling you to go further and reach higher than you’ve ever dreamed possible!
