If any of these are the case with you, you’re at the right ‘ilbe!
This ‘ible is being written for the Humana Health by Design Contest. So if you like it, please vote for me. I’m putting over 38 years of experience into just one ‘ible (I REALLY would love that Wii!) So, sit down and read the secrets to changing your life. Hopefully, we can all become just a little better as humans and make the world a better place.
Please note, I didn’t invent the idea of daily affirmations (DA). Quite contrary, I was a major skeptic of them. Then I tried one and found that they really help and really do work. Using the DA methods, I’ve run a marathon, I’ve completed my Master’s degree, and I’m working on a book now.
Step 1: So what is a "Daily Affirmation?"
Daily affirmations are a tool to help you accomplish a goal. They are more for you to stay focus on the goal and how to accomplish it then any magic ‘voodoo.’
Here is how it works, once you decide on a goal, you spend a few minutes each day, reciting that affirmation to yourself. Either by writing it down 15 times on a piece of paper, you maybe by reciting it 15 or 20 times to yourself in front of a mirror, or maybe just thinking about it out loud.
How you recite your affirmation is a personal decision. But what is important is how you word the affirmation. You need to make it an “active statement” with clearly measurable end state.
Affirmations like, “I want to get better at the piano” aren’t clear enough. A statement like “I want to be able to play Mozart on the piano” is much more obtainable.
It’s important that you believe in your ability to achieve the affirmation, without reserve or conditions.
Affirmations like, “I will grow a third eye” are not useful as you know, with incredible certainty that will not happen.
