Do you want more success and happiness in your life? Having a hard time overcoming the obstacles that get into your way of success? Take a moment and think about what you say to yourself. Become aware of your thoughts and your inner dialogue.
Whether you realize it or not, you’re always talking to yourself. That inner voice inside your head can either be a great ally in your success or an enemy that stands in your way.
That’s why learning to speak positively to yourself is so important. If you’re having a tough time reaching your goals or finding happiness, maybe it’s time for you to become mindful the thoughts you are thinking.
Positive affirmations are a way for you to accomplish your goals by changing your inner dialogue. Positive affirmations can help you find success, prosperity, and happiness because they change the way you talk to yourself.
Why Write Your Own Affirmations?
I created a fillable PDF worksheet you can use to create your own positive affirmations and change your inner dialog to reach your goals. You can either fill it the worksheet out on your computer and print it out, or you can print it out and fill it out by hand
Knowing how to create your own positive affirmations is a wonderful skill to have. Most positive affirmations sessions today are created for a general audience, but we are all unique individuals with our unique goal. Learning how to create your affirmations lets you overcome the negativities held in the deep mind and empowers you face those challenges head one, and accomplish the goals you are seeking to accomplish
Instructions on how to use the Positive Affirmations Tool:
Step #1 – Think of your goal
First, think of a goal you want to accomplish or something you want to change. Do your best to make your goal SMART (Specific, Measurable, Realistic, and Time based).
Also, think of a goal you can accomplish in a relatively short time, perhaps in a few months or a few weeks. If you have a long term goal in mind, think about how you can break that big goal into smaller goals, and then tackle the smaller goals one at a time.
Step #2 – Write down any negativities, fears, or obstacles
Next, think of an obstacle, challenge, or negative thought that gets in the way. Be honest with how you are feeling. The only way you will change your mindset is if you actively seek out the negativity that holds you back
Write down the obstacles, challenges, and negative thoughts that get in the way of you and you
Step #3 -Provide each negative point a rational response
Now, think of an explanation or a rational response to the negative thought. Imagine the negative thoughts are the temper-tantrums of a toddler. How would you respond in a positive way?
Word the response in a positive way and avoid using the words ‘no’ or ‘not’ in your rational response.
Step #4 – Create your affirmations
Now think of a positive affirmation that you can repeat over and over to override and eliminate the negative thought. Keep the affirmations short so they are easy to remember. Also, word your affirmation in a positive way and avoid the words ‘no’ and ‘not’.
Step #5 – Print out your affirmations and repeat often
When you are finished with this worksheet, you can print out the last page with your Smart Goal and your affirmations already filled in.
Tips for Success
#1 Focus on one goal at a time. It may be tempting to try and accomplish many goals at once, but you will find more success if you allow your mind to focus on one main objective. The more specific your goal, the more specific your affirmations will be, the more you will succeed in your goal.
#2 Keep your affirmations short. It might be tempting to think of long and poetic affirmation, but long affirmations are harder to remember.
Affirmations that are short and to the point will pack a bigger punch and do more to change your frame of mind.
#3 Repeat your affirmations as often as you can until they become a part of your regular thinking pattern. The more you repeat your affirmations the more successful you will be at accomplishing your goal and shifting your mindset.
