Power of Affirmations
I’ve had a lot of questions about affirmations and they’re
real power. I’ve studied and worked with affirmations for
quite some time and I even teach students who take my Creating
Power course how to create their own affirmations. For those of
you not familiar with affirmations – they’re statements
that you repeat to yourself to the point where they penetrate
your subconscious mind – which then acts on those affirmations
by creating situations that mirror those affirmations. In short
– they’re thoughts that you repeat over and over again
until they become beliefs to the point where the subconscious
acts on them. Some people even have affirmation tapes that they
play throughout the night as they go to sleep – which I
will talk about later in this newsletter.
have been around for centuries – and I can’t think
of a single self-help course or book that doesn’t touch
on the subject in one form or another.
week I’m going to talk about the power of affirmations,
why we need to incorporate them into our daily lives and why you
should recite them instead of playing them back in a tape recorder.
week’s newsletter is brought to you by Creating Power –
the complete course that teaches you how to create the life you
want by developing the powers of you mind and subconscious mind.
It’s the only course that comes with personal coaching and
is guaranteed to help you improve your life.
are a great tool when it comes to creating change and I can’t
understand why so many people don’t use them. They’re
power is not only in their ability to create situations and circumstances
for you to achieve your goals – but they also help you eliminate
clear up some misconceptions about affirmations before we go any
further. You cannot use affirmations to affect somebody else’s
behavior – that is you cannot use affirmations to get somebody
else to do something. For example: you cannot say an affirmation
to make someone behave a certain way or make someone love you.
You cannot say an affirmation to get somebody to do something
that they do not want to do. You cannot say affirmations to control
somebody else – otherwise ruthless leaders all over the
world would have their cronies reciting affirmations to get people
to behave a certain way. It’s just not that simple. You
cannot say affirmations to change something that has already happened
or fix something that is already broken.
work best when they are connected to you and your behavior and
your goals. What do I mean? Well, let’s say you want to
improve a relationship with somebody and you want them to understand
you better or listen to you when you speak. Based on what I said
in the previous paragraph – you can’t say ____ is
now listening to me or ____ understands me better. Remember you
can’t change the way somebody behaves with an affirmation.
If you’ve been doing this and not getting results –
now you know why.
– you should be focusing on you and your actions. So in
the above example you would say something like I’m now finding
ways to help __ understand me better. I’m now saying the
right things to help ___ listen to me. I’m finding ways
to convince __ to listen to me and I’m now convincing __
to listen to me. Two things have happened here – one is
you’ve taken the affirmation and sent the message to your
subconscious mind so that you do the right things to improve the
situation. Next – you’ve also instructed your subconscious
mind to provide you with the corresponding action to help you
obtain the outcome you want. What follows is that you start doing
things to create the outcome you want. This is very different
than saying ___ is now listening to me. In that case you are doing
nothing and trying to get somebody else to do something while
you keep taking the same actions – you’ll never get
the results you want. So – the affirmation should reflect
what you can do and what actions you can take to create the outcome
you want. Some people – actually a lot of people want to
make more money. Simply saying I’m making more money is
a good start – but you can also create the affirmation that
reflects action – thus saying: I know what to do to make
more money and I’m now doing the right things to make more
should be short and simple – and reflect what you want to
happen and what you can do to make that situation happen. They
don’t have to be long and complicated because if they are
– you’ll never remember them – and that’s
one of the main reasons why people forget to say them. Designing
the right affirmations is very important and in my Creating Power
course I outline exactly how to create affirmations to get results.
With Creating Power you’ll learn how to work with affirmations
and more so that you send the right messages to your subconscious
mind and create the life you want.
create affirmations – focus on what you want – not
on what you don’t want. You should only be focusing on the
outcome that you want. You may have to think about it a little
bit – but you’ll understand once you start the process.
– try to say your affirmations in your head to yourself.
I know a lot of people like to record affirmations and then play
the tape when they’re driving or going to bed. This does
help – but what happens when you stop playing the tape?
Chances are you’ll go back to your old patterns of thinking
and erase all the positive work those tapes created. Why? Because
you didn’t train your mind to focus on what you want and
create corresponding affirmations – you didn’t train
your mind to get used to saying affirmations. When you recite
the affirmation in your head – you train your mind to stay
positive, think positive and more importantly it stops being negative.
You also get used to saying them.
times it may seem like the affirmations are boring or that you’re
just saying them and they’re not having any impact. This
is a crossing point. You’re going from initial excitement
that comes with saying the new affirmations to having them penetrate
your subconscious – this is when you need to continue saying
them the most – because your subconscious is ready to act
on them. Track your results – see if there have been improvements
in certain areas of your life for which you’ve been saying
affirmations. Even small improvements are positive signs.
you need to believe the affirmations? No you don’t need
to believe the affirmations. In fact some would argue that it’s
probably better not to believe the affirmations because when they
manifest it’s just further evidence to your mind that they
do work. Keep your affirmations fresh and have fun with them.
are powerful tool that can help you create the life you want.
But you have to use them properly and you have to continue working
with them regularly – to the point where they become such
a habit that you want to say them all of the time. Hey –
it’s better than keeping all that junk inside your head
– you know the stuff you keep thinking about but doesn’t
really help you accomplish anything – and in many cases
those negative thoughts may actually push you backwards. Affirmations
help you take control of your mind – something I go over
in great detail in my Creating Power system. With Creating Power
you’ll learn to work with affirmations and other tools so
that you eliminate negative thinking, and begin creating the life
you want. Creating Power is the handbook for your mind –
it teaches you how to work with your mind and subconscious so
that you create the life you want and achieve your goals.
over the years I’ve had a few people say to me: “Affirmations
don’t work – they help for a little bit but after
a while they just don’t work.” Funny thing is that
when I ask them why they don’t work after a while they always
say they don’t know. Then I ask them if they stopped saying
them after a while – and most of the time the answer is
yes – they did stop saying them. In other cases I try to
take a look at the affirmations and see if they are correct –
or if they’re not in line with what I’ve been talking
about. Hey if you say the wrong thing in the wrong way all of
the time you’re not going to get the results you want. It’s
like working out the wrong way – it just doesn’t help.
understand that some affirmations take longer to have an impact.
It really depends on where you are and what you want to accomplish.
For example: if you’re unemployed and want to be a millionaire
or be making a large six figure income with your own office –
it’s going to take some time. You have to get a job and
get into the right place to start making the big money and earn
the millions you want. It’s not going to happen overnight.
So the first step is to focus on getting work that will put you
on a track to make that kind of money. It will happen –
but it really depends on where you are and what you want to accomplish.
Also remember nothing is going to fall from the sky – you
have to do the work, and be open to new possibilities.
are just one of many techniques you could use to create the life
you want. With the Creating Power System you’ll learn how
to use all your inner powers to create the life you want. Not

help from me in creating them – but you’ll also learn
how to use all your powers so that you get your subconscious mind

worked with affirmations for a long time – I know they work
– but they have to be worded correctly and they have to
be in your own voice. Sure affirmations from a book will help
– but the most powerful affirmations are those that you
create because they are in your own voice and reflect what you
