Welcome to Daily Affirmations.
The following story, of two boys - one smart and one smart aleck - illustrates the importance of doing affirmations on a regular basis.
Both boys wanted to be body builders. Their coach advised them to exercise one hour daily, five days a week, for one year.
The first boy started immediately and exercised one hour (sometimes more) daily, as advised. The second boy, a smart aleck, did some calculations. One hour daily means five hours weekly. Fifty two weeks in a year. That makes it 52x5=260 hours. And 260 divided by 8 gives 32.5. So this smart aleck figures that instead of exercising one hour daily for the whole year, if he exercises 8 hours daily (four hours in the morning and four hours in the evening) for the last 33 days, he can acquire a physique equivalent to that of the first guy. Do you think this is possible?
The same goes for daily affirmations. The word ‘daily’ is important. Only when you train your mind ‘daily’ to think in a certain way for a certain period of time, that the mind adopts that way of thinking as its own. It is then that the mind starts changing your behavior to match your new thinking. And now, positive changes start taking place in your life.
At the same time, it is necessary to understand that as human beings, we are not infallible. It is a fact that we will miss out on some days. What is important is that we start doing our affirmations with renewed vigor from the next day. Simply because we have missed our daily affirmation one or two or three days does not mean that we have to stop. Restarting is the key to success.
When a toddler learns to walk, it falls down again and again. But does it stop trying? No, it keeps on trying and voila, one day it walks without falling. That should be our attitude while doing our daily affirmations.
The following is a list of affirmations which you can use daily to your benefit.
