In my previous blog, I’ve spoken about what affirmations are and how to use them. Now affirmations alone won’t get you where you want to go. To make affirmations more effective you need to couple them with other actions. Here are some tips to help you increase the power of your affirmations:


Limit your affirmations

Don’t go overboard – it will dilute your focus, efforts and effectiveness. I personally focus on no more than 5 of the most important things I would like to manifest.


Start your day by saying your affirmations

By voicing your affirmations early in the morning, you set a positive tone for the day. They are also a reminder of what you would like to achieve which will impact your actions during the day.


Put your affirmations on paper

Having a physical reminder of your affirmations can help to strengthen your commitment to them. After saying your affirmations write them down and say them out loud. You can also create a vision board as a reminder. Any one of these is great as long as it is positive, motivating and self-reinforcing.


Create an action plan

Set up a realistic, written plan of actions you will take to help you reach your goals. Note it in your diary and make them part of your daily routine. Remember to break your plan down into doable actions with a realistic expectation of the time, effort and resources you will need.


Call a friend!

Letting your friends and family know what you want to achieve, and how you are planning to achieve it will give you the support system you need. Whether it’s emotional support when you are feeling less motivated or someone to help complete an action step, make sure to call on a friend or family member that is dependable.


Remember to be kind

Check-in with yourself at the end of the day with compassion and NO judgement. Celebrate your successes. Re-evaluate and adjust the plan if you weren’t able to complete your actions steps.


The key is to be kind, compassionate and supportive of yourself during this process. By honouring yourself each day you will always make progress!
