Affirmations for the New Year!

What is an affirmation? An affirmation is the action or process of affirming something or being affirmed. Affirmations are very important to help you stay positive and keep your eyes on your goals. By repeating affirmations daily to yourself you are speaking life into your personal and business life. Many celebrities say affirmations daily like Oprah Winfrey, Iyanla Vanzant, and Will Smith to name a few. They have used affirmations to help better their lives.

Over the last year I started reciting and posting affirmations. During this time I transformed the way that I was thinking about myself and my business. I have changed the negative tape recorder in my head to a positive reinforcing replay. Since I started reciting and posting affirmations my business has actually started growing. I, as a person has grown as well. I am more confident in areas of my life that I lacked confidence. I have changed a few of my affirmations because of this growth. Every once in a while when I feel that those old feeling are coming back I look back to my old affirmations and read them to help build me back up.

I also have a vision board to assist with affirming what I want out of. I have my vision board as my cover photo on Facebook and hanging in my bedroom so it’s the first and last thing I see. On my vision board I have pictures and words that declare where I want to be in the near future. Using affirmations not only helps you to get through the current day but it gives you a sense of strength and accomplishment as you reach each of your goals!

I have compiled a list of affirmations that I have read from others and that I have written myself. Please feel free to use these and/or create your own affirmations that fit your life/business.
