What Are Affirmations, And Do They Really Work?

Have you heard about the law of attraction for manifestations? The law of attraction is very simple and clear: you attract what you believe in.

Look around you, analyze your current situation. This is a direct result of what you believe in.

"You have the power to create something better. You can manifest everything and anything"

Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes.

  • Affirmations are like exercises for our minds.
  • These positive mental repetitions can reprogram our thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin to think – and act – differently.

For example, evidence suggests that affirmations can help you to perform better at work. According to researchers, spending just a few minutes thinking about your best qualities before a high-pressure meeting can calm your nerves, increase your confidence, and improve your chances of a successful outcome.

Importance Of Positive Affirmations

You can use affirmations in any situation where you'd like to see a positive change take place in your life. These might include times when you want to:

  • Raising confidence before presentations or important meetings.
  • Control negative feelings such as frustration, anger, or impatience.
  • Improve your self-esteem.
  • Finish projects you've started.
  • Improve your productivity.
  • Overcome a bad habit.
  • Setting personal goals.
  • Affirmations work particularly well alongside Visualization.
  • The power of affirmations lies in repeating them to yourself regularly.
  • It's useful to recite your affirmations several times a day.
  • Repeat your affirmations just after you engage in the negative thought or behavior that you want to overcome.

​How To Write Affirmations?

Imagine for a second that you already have what you are wishing for? How are you feeling at this moment? Happy and excited right! Pour these feelings while creating your own affirmations.

  • Make them personal. Start with an I.
  • Use the present tense. E.g.: I am feeling relaxed.
  • Let them be short.
  • Make it positive. Avoid words like “not.”
  • Make it believable.
  • Believe in the power of affirmation.
  • Write them down.
  • Say them daily.

Here Are Some Examples Of Powerful Affirmations

Remember, if you say these affirmations but give a second thought about them and immediately cover it with suspicion, it will only disappoint you. Your reality will easily match your vibration. When in doubt, you create resistance in your vibration. So, set your doubts aside and believe in each word with all your heart. Fill them with lots of positive vibes.

  • I am worthy of love, success, happiness, and fulfillment.
  • People I love, love me back.
  • I am in control of my life, I am the creator of all my experiences.
  • All that I desire is coming true.
  • I am capable of receiving and giving abundance.


We hope this blog has helped you believe in the power of affirmations, but if you are not yet sure what you really want in life, you are not the only one. Relax. Don't be afraid that you still don't have a plan. All you need is some guidance. Seek the help of an expert psychologist.
