How you word your affirmations is just as important as the fact that you’re doing them.
Here is something about affirmations that most people don’t know:
A wrong word here and there can derail all of your good efforts.
Claire McGee will help you avoid that.
Claire McGee is the author of the best-selling book I Believe Therefore I Am: How to Deliberately Live Your Life by Programming Your Mind for Success, Happiness, Love, and Fulfillment.
In this video, Claire helped a person improve his affirmation for maximum effectiveness.
The person’s original affirmation?
I make $10,000 per month.
Claire changed one word in this affirmation to make it effective.
And you can use this one word to make all of your affirmations effective.
Watch and listen . . .
What change was made?
How can this seemingly simple affirmation be improved?
Affirmations are self-talk. Since you are talking to yourself, there is one thing that you cannot do because it causes consternation and confusion.
You cannot lie to yourself.
Saying to yourself that you “make $10,000 per month” when you don’t causes within yourself a discordant feedback. Your conscious mind is repeating that affirmation and your subconscious mind is replying, “No, we’re not, otherwise we’d be driving a Cadillac!”
Here is how you can overcome that dissonance.
You can change one word in that affirmation and it will be effective.
Change make …
… to am achieving.
Your new affirmation will be:
I am achieving $10,000 per month.
Do you see how that works?
It is a small, yet powerful, change.
Try it for yourself. Review your affirmations and if any of them use words that spark dissonance because you’re “lying” to yourself, reword those affirmations to use the word achieve.
If you are looking to become healthy, then use …
I am achieving my perfect health.
I am achieving happiness.
You will find it most effective.
Achieve I Believe Therefore I Am because the ideas, methods, and skills you will learn in this book will help you become balanced in all areas of your thinking and action and you will begin to deliberately live the life of your own choosing — a life of success, happiness, love, and fulfillment.
