    Do Affirmations Work?

    Who has used affirmations and experienced real change because of them? I'd like to hear about it, because it is one method of self improvement I haven't really tried yet. (Actually, I'm in the process of trying them, but I'm a bit of a skeptic.)

    Do Affirmations Work?

    Hi Mochilero,

    Affirmations are important and do help to change the way a person views their world. Affirmations work in a similar fashion as the put downs and hurtful words we experience in life...as words help to create our perceptions. What you say to yourself can become the "programming" of your mind. In other words, if you are using negative words to describe yourself or your experience then that is how you will perceive circumstances in your life that are similar. Using affirmations can help to boost your self-esteem and soon become your inner beliefs. Affirmations are preferences you have for your life. So when things don't go the way you want them to...you can lean on your affirmations (preferences) to help work your way through the situation. Being skeptical is okay as long as you are not using it against yourself. Take care,

    Thanks

    Thanks,

    I understand the theory. Without a doubt words are a powerful force in our lives. Our inner dialog seems to change according to our experience though, rather than by repeating words. I think if I had real examples of someone who changed from using affirmations it would help. I will try them anyhow, but I believe us skeptics have a natural resistence "unproven" statements.

    You are welcome. I have used them throughout my adult life and have found affirmations to be most helpful. If a person has spent their whole life listening to negative statements, it is unlikely that they will immediately believe the positive statements they make. It takes time and practice. Good luck!

    I totally agree with comfortzone. Most people who have depression, anxieties, fears, phobias, etc. have told themselves, I'm not good enough, I can't do it, etc. THese attitudes have most likely occured most of their lives. I believe affirmations are very helpful, but I know you have to keep doing them and keep at it. Becuase you are changing your thinking, a way you have been thinking your whole. Loiuse Hay believes they are very helpful. She has a book called You Can Heal Your Life, which I thought had some valuable info. Good luck.
