Affirmation is an action of stating something as a fact, asserting strongly and publicly; declaring something to be true; a positive statement or judgment. By using affirmations one is telling oneself encouraging and positive statements about himself/herself. This is used to enforce the desired positive changes in one’s consciousness, which will then in turn make a positive impact on their self-talk. Positive self-talk will make it easier to say positive and encouraging statements about oneself, so the loop is closed.
The effectiveness of affirmations depends on the agreement between one’s heart and his or her mind. In other words, if there is a big difference between the desires (i.e. what the person wants) and what he or she really believes and proclaims to himself/herself (i.e. their self-talk), then an effort will be required to make this difference smaller and eventually removed. This will be easier if one is surrounded by positive and caring people. In more cases than not such people have strong faith and base their optimism on the belief that God loves them and is always providing for their needs and the needs of everybody else.
I am worthy, I am capable, I am deserving, I trust myself.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I live courageously and I handle every situation in life effortlessly.
Evey day in every way I am getting better and better.
I am at peace knowing that the present moment is the only one over which I have power.
