10 Powerful Affirmation Tips to Get What You Want

Loyd Mears

I have been using affirmations for years, so I’ve made ALMOST every possible mistake and hit ALMOST every brick wall there is.

I’ve done exhaustive research and written many articles as well. I’ll link to all of them at the end of this article.

Below, you’re going to discover 10 powerful tips that’ll help you master the art of affirmations.

In this guide, I’ll not only show you how to make affirmations that work perfectly; I’ll show you how to use them effectively and change your life with them. These are powerful affirmation tips.

Affirmations have been around for a while. In fact, many prominent places (Oprah Daily & Huff Post for example) have written about affirmations extensively. Because…THEY WORK!

Here’s the issue: most people don’t know how to write great affirmations. Most people don’t even know well enough about affirmations to use them effectively.

This article will show you how to use affirmations in your life so that you can change your life and get more from your affirmations.

A positive affirmation is nothing more than positive self-talk. You can use affirmations to reprogram your mind and get what you desire out of life. They are easy to use and simple to understand.

When used correctly, they can be incredibly helpful. You can use affirmations to achieve your goals by following the tips below.

Tip #1 – Use Affirmations Everywhere For Maximum Effect

One of the best things about affirmations is that you can use them anywhere and anytime. For instance, if you’re going into an interview for a new job, you can calm your nerves using an affirmation. You can relax and calm yourself down by taking several deep breaths and repeating affirmations. Your nervousness will decrease as you relax.

Tip #2 – Keep Them Brief

You should keep your affirmations simple, brief, and to the point. When you use short, one-line statements that you can repeat continually, your statements will be more effective. You will also be able to repeat them anywhere if you keep them short.

Tip #3 – Keep Things Positive

Our subconscious minds cannot differentiate between positive and negative affirmations and accept either. Instead of saying, “I am not going to fail this test,” you should think, “I am passing this test.” To stay positive, think, “I am passing this test.”

Tip #4 – Make Them Specific

Your affirmations will become much more real and believable if you include more detail. Similarly to setting your goals, you need to tell your Reticular Activating System what you want to achieve. The more specific, the more likely you are to achieve your goals. Specific affirmations can give you motivation and the opportunity to accomplish anything you desire.

Tip #5 – Review Them Every Morning

Make your affirmations a part of your daily routine to support you in achieving your goals. Take a look at your schedule in the morning and come up with an affirmation that will support your day’s goals. Eventually, you may find several positive affirmations that work the best for you. 

Tip #6 – Believe That You’ve Already Achieved Them

You should always make your affirmations in the present tense. If you say, “I want to lose weight,” as opposed to “I will achieve my ideal weight by the end of the month,” the Law of Attraction hears the words “I want” and leaves you constantly wanting.

Tip #7– Use Dynamic Visualization

There is more to affirmations than reading them from cards and moving on. You have to visualize them. After reading each affirmation, you should spend a few minutes imagining what that will be like when it becomes a reality. Think about what you will see, what you will hear, what smells you’ll experience, and what feelings you’ll have about the achievement.

Tip #8– Record yourself saying them

Make a recording of yourself repeating your affirmations. Once you have the tapes, you can listen to them on the way to work or whenever you need them. Consider adding some soothing music to the background to make them even more useful.

Tip #9 – Listen To Motivating Music While Doing Affirmations

You can use music to enhance your affirmations. Consider listening to motivational, stirring, or upbeat music while reading your affirmations. Music can stimulate feelings inside you. Your feelings generate the internal vibrations that will ultimately lead you closer to your desires.

Tip #10 – Use Images

Overlay your affirmations over relevant background pictures. It’s okay if you are not proficient in Photoshop. Instead, you can look at relevant images after you read your affirmations. When you look at images consistent with your affirmations, you will feel some excitement. The excitement you feel will make you vibrate in a way that will attract your desired outcome. 

When used correctly, affirmations are a powerful tool for manifesting your dreams. Discover how to change your life dramatically by following the tips above and checking out the next section.

How to Use Affirmations to Dramatically Change Your Life

The first time you start using positive affirmations and the Law of Attraction, you realize that you can change how you feel, believe, and think about things. Affirmations help you manifest all your heart’s desires by believing that they are possible and feeling that they are already yours. Here is how you can use positive affirmations to change your life and achieve everything you desire.

Know What You Want

Affirmations can help you live a happier life if you know what you want clearly. Want a better job? Would you like to lose weight? Are you interested in buying a new house? It is not enough to know what you want, but you also have to know how you ask for it. People often list what they don’t want. Your subconscious will focus on the negative aspects of your desires when you make affirmations focused on what you don’t want.

Know That You Have It

Your words need to trigger emotions to imprint your subconscious with an idea or vision. For your affirmations to materialize, they must be believable, and they must be considered realistic. If you have negative feelings and emotions, it will only obstruct your ability to receive any positive emotions. For your affirmations to be effective, you will need to develop techniques that will allow you to overcome these negative emotions.

Feel What You Already Have

You have to envision how you will feel after achieving your goal to generate a positive emotional state. To manifest what you want, you need to manifest how you feel about achieving your goal. The emotions and feelings you put into the universe determine what you will receive, so you need to learn how it feels and practice incorporating it when asking for what you want.

When you know what you want, know what you have, and feel that you have already achieved your goal, you will be able to create powerful manifestations that will work for you.  

I wish you great success and happiness!
