If you believe the phrase you are what you think, then life truly stems from your thoughts. But we cannot rely purely on thoughts; we must translate thoughts into words and eventually into actions in order to manifest our intentions.
35 Positive Thoughts And Affirmations
This means we have to be very careful with our words, choosing to speak only those which work towards our benefit and cultivate our highest good.
Affirmations help purify our thoughts and restructure the dynamic of our brains so that we truly begin to think nothing is impossible.
Daily affirmations are simple, positive statements declaring specific goals in their completed states. Although they sound rather basic at that level, these empowering mantras have profound effects on the conscious and unconscious mind.
What are Daily Affirmations?
Daily affirmations are to the mind what exercise is to the body.
Repeating affirmations helps to reprogram the unconscious mind for success.
It helps eliminate negative and limiting beliefs and transforms your comfort zone from a limited one keeping you trapped in mediocrity to a more expanded one where anything is possible. It helps to replace your “I cant’s” with “I cans,” and your fears and doubts with confidence and certainty.

How do you do a daily affirmation?
The technique you use to do this begins with daily affirmations, which are simply statements that describe a goal in its already completed state.
Two examples of affirmations would be:
“I am joyfully walking across the stage as I receive my MBA degree from Wharton.“
“I am so happy and grateful that I am now crossing the finish line of the Boston Marathon.“
In addition to all of the feedback I have received from hundreds of thousands of students from around the world about the effectiveness of their daily affirmations, there’s now new academic research that shows in high-stress level environments those who do use them have lower stress levels and more successful than those who don’t.
How to Create Positive Affirmations
The daily use of positive affirmations interrupts and eventually totally replaces this barrage of negative thoughts and beliefs.
To achieve this, you must continually flood your subconscious with thoughts and images of the new reality you wish to create.
I am going to share with you two sets of guidelines for creating powerful daily affirmations that work—the long-form and the short form.
Here are the eight guidelines for creating effective affirming statements. You may want to write these down. They are also in my book The Success Principles.
- Start with the words “I am.” These are the two most powerful words in the English language.
- Use the present tense.
- State it in the positive. Affirm what you want, not what you don’t want.
- Keep it brief.
- Make it specific.
- Include an action word ending withing.
- Include at least one dynamic emotion or feeling word.
- Make affirmations for yourself, not others.
Helpful Daily Affirmations Guidelines
By using the guidelines found below, you can transform limp affirmations like that into mantras for manifesting a huge change in your life!
1. Enter the “now”
Start your affirmation by entering the present tense. Take the condition you desire and declare it to be already true.
2. Be positive
Our sample affirmation keeps the focus on smoking—the condition that you do not want. Instead, shine a light on what you do want—to be smoke-free.
3. Be concise
Shorter is better. Affirmations with fewer words are often easier to recall, especially in situations when you feel some stress. Rhyming makes your affirmations even more memorable.
For example, “I am feeling alive at 185.”
4. Include action
Whenever possible, affirm yourself as a person who takes action. For example: “I am gratefully driving my new Porsche along an open highway.”
Action engages the Law of Attraction, creating new results in our lives and opening us to further inspiration.
5. Include a feeling word
Powerful affirmations include content and emotion. Content describes the specific outcome that you desire. Emotion gets to the heart of how you feel about that outcome. For a more potent affirmation, add both elements.
