The use of affirmations and positive self-talk is frequently touted by the self-development industry. However, I find that whilst a lot of people (including my clients) may have heard of their use, they usually don’t know why it’s deemed so important in the pursuit of achieving goals.
Many of us hear about affirmations most when we read about the Law of Attraction theory; I think this can often confuse the matter further for people who are fairly new to the notion of implementing purposeful self-talk.
Rather than a simple understanding of just how and why programming our mind for success is so pivotal in the attainment of our goals, there seems to be a belief that by merely uttering those statements, those things will turn up in our life. Perhaps this is the case but as we don’t have enough research to support this notion just yet, we’ll address three other reasons you should use affirmations and positive self talk to help you to feel happy, in control and ultimately achieve your goals.
So, for now, watch this vlog (video blog) I recently put together to share three reasons why affirmations and positive self-talk work because as Jim Rohn once said, “Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.”
