WHY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS DON’T WORK – HOW TO MAKE AFFIRMATIONS WORK FASTER FOR YOU TO ACHIEVE GOALS


Have you tried saying affirmations and found
they don’t seem to work? Well there’s often numerous reasons as to
why that is and in this video, we look at 5 possible reasons affirmations aren’t working
for you… 1. You Feel Like You’re Lying
– Self talk is fundamental to what we achieve and will work both for and against you, depending
on what you say – The problem for many when saying affirmations
is that even when we think we believe the affirmation, our subconscious is still aware
of doubts and hesitations we might have – It’s fundamental that you wholly and completely
believe in your affirmation, so when there are any doubts
– …it’s vital to acknowledge those doubts to try and deal with the root for self doubt 2. You Use Wrong Phrases
– Often an affirmation will start with “I am” as believe we embody that statement
– However, many will say “I will”, and in both cases if there are doubts, the affirmation
simply doesn’t feel like it has any affect – If you say “I am”, you have to fully believe
in the statement, and if that doesn’t work… – …try to instead turn the phrase to be
something you will believe, such as “I can”, or even a question to challenge yourself 3. You Don’t Follow Through
– If you wake up and spend 5 minutes saying affirmations to yourself
– …only to then spend the rest of the day doing and saying things that lead to building
self doubt – …do you think you will gain any benefit
from the affirmations? Of course not
– It’s important to follow through on affirmations, say them in the morning and embody them throughout
the day, as otherwise you’re going to just try and fool yourself 4. You Try To Do Too Much
– One of the biggest benefits and reasons affirmations work is that they help us focus
in life and on ourselves – So if you try and say a lot of varied affirmations,
it’s going to hard to fulfil on them, as you lose focus and spread yourself thin
– Same goes for the goals you affirm to yourself, too many goals that only focus on the long
term will be hard to believe and make reality – Instead focus on yourself and focus on growing
step by step, don’t rush, you have a lifetime 5. You Don’t Take Action
– Put simply, saying affirmations and then not doing to make them reality is simply lying
to yourself – As with most things in life, you need to
follow up what you say you will do with actions that make the statement a reality
– If you don’t, it’s unlikely anything will happen and you won’t be anything more than
you are at the time of making the statement – …but if you take action, there’s no reason
why the affirmation won’t become your reality Thanks for watching, please Like, Share and
