Imagine someone you barely know walks to you and says: “You look fat.” What is your first reaction? Get angry? Furious? Or ready to drop the F-bomb? Aside from the anger or the feelings of being hurt, will you also wonder: Am I really fat?
So now let’s imagine that someone approaches you in the same way. But this time, instead of publicly insulting you, he says: “Wow, you are looking gorgeous today.” What is your reaction this time? Probably happy and thrilled while hopping to find any mirror to confirm that he’s telling the truth.
So what if that someone is you?
This is how affirmations WORK. They are that second guy who praises you on the first sight. They are the positive voice that consolidates your faith. When these empowering statements are repeated frequently, they get into your subconscious mind and shut the doubting voices up. You begin to see yourself manifesting your goals and actually living your dreams.
Confidence and faith generate greater motivation. And when those 3 combined, you have the results. That is what they call “visualize, and realize“.

➾ Tips: During your first few attempts at repeating affirmations, you may feel like lying to yourself. It may be difficult for you to believe what you are saying is actually going to come true. The more you practice, the more convinced you will be. Consistency is key here. So don’t quit.
