“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.”Muhammad Ali
I often find hear people say that affirmations are overrated and don’t work. I always wonder though if they if ever stop to think of the stories they repeatedly tell themselves that have shaped their life. Repeating anything over time works whether you are doing it consciously or unconsciously . It might be affirmations, stories that you tell yourself, skills, etc. Eventually you start to believe whatever it is you tell yourself and you become that person.
I invite you to spend some time every day just monitoring your thoughts. What it is that you are repeating to yourself? What do you tell yourself about the person that you are? What do you tell yourself about your future prospects? Once you make the unconscious conscious, you are in a position to make a change, to become intentional about what you think, say and do and then watch how your life slowly transforms.
