People often ask me about affirmations, how to use them, and whether they really work.
They ask, “Do affirmations work?”
“How affirmations work?”
I am sure you have heard about affirmations. In case you didn’t, affirmations are positive statements, which describe in positive words a desired situation, event, habit, or something that we want to possess or achieve.
Do Affirmations Work?
If you ask whether affirmations work, the answer is yes, they do. To make them work you have to repeat them often, attentively, while believing that what you are affirming is either already true, or in the process of becoming true.
Gradually, as you repeat the positive statements – positive affirmations, they sink into the subconscious mind and influence it to act in accordance with the repeated words.
As you repeat the words with belief and focus, your motivation and desire grow stronger, and push you to start taking action to make the words you are repeating come true.
- You will begin to think positively and to expect success.
- You will begin to recognize opportunities when they appear.
- Gain new friends or meet people who would help you.
- Find the right book, information, advice or guidance that you need.
- You will also find solutions to problems, and answers and insights related to the goal you want to achieve.
How to Get Results with Affirmations
If you wish to get results repeat affirmations often
The words that you repeat often in your mind, ultimately, affect your subconscious mind and reprogram it in accordance with the idea and words of the affirmation.
By repeating the affirmations, you program your subconscious mind to help you manifest your goals, change your habits or develop new skills.
It is not enough to repeat affirmations just a few times. This is one of the reasons for the failure to get results, which eventually leads to losing faith in the affirmations and stop using them.
If you wish to use these positive words and statements and get results, it would be a good idea to start with small goals at first, in order to get some experience. This will also show you, first hand, how they work, so you can use them better.
Starting small also gives you the faith and confidence you need when working on bigger goals.

It often happens that after a few days of repeating affirmations, the mind starts raising doubts about the efficiency and usefulness of the affirmations, and you start asking yourself whether affirmations do work at all.
If your goal is a minor goal, it takes a shorter time to achieve it, and therefore, the mind has less time to raise doubts and neutralize your efforts. This is another reason why it is better to start small.
Small success at first, will strengthen your faith in the method, and the resistance of your mind will get weaker.
