Living a ‘good life’ means more than just happiness! In this video series I’ve selected from 101 keywords and discuss how each word can impact your potential to live a more happy, flourishing and prosperous personal and work life.
This is keyword #004 – Affirmation
An affirmation is a statement in the present tense that is declared by you to be an actual or desired truth. The theory is the more you say something or affirm something to yourself, over time your subconscious will simple accept it as being a truth and will allow you to consciously discover ways to fulfil that truth through action.
But be careful here.
What increases the likelihood and speed of an affirmation that is not a current reality in your life becoming a reality in your life is an alignment with your personal beliefs and values. I refer to this as an intentional affirmation.
Whereas, if you have an affirmation that is inconsistent with your inner values and who you want to be or what you want to do there will be a dissonance or conflict within you. This means the likelihood of the affirmation ‘sticking’ over time will be reduced and you will find it difficult to consciously discover ways to fulfil the affirmation in reality.
To be truly happy, flourishing and living a prosperous life, intentional affirmations can be a powerful resource for you to draw upon.
