Why are affirmations IMPORTANT For ME?
Today we are crunching the topic of why are affirmations important for personal development and motivation. Stay tuned. You will love it.
I have already written about affirmations: 30 Affirmations for success. In this text, I list the essential things and truths related to mind reprogramming. However, reprogramming is not as simple as it seems.
If you are reading this text, you have probably read more of them on the topic of affirmations and tried different affirmations in the hope that they will be affirmed or realized.
Some come true. But not all. Why?
Why some affirmations work and others don’t?
Our subconscious is very interesting. He ‘believes’ in every affirmation that is confirmed by vibration. You probably read about it somewhere, too. If not, an explanation follows.
So, every sentence, thought or word spoken is an affirmation. Whether they are ‘negative’ or ‘positive’, they are still an affirmation. So, what we pay attention to and vibrate (whether we feel happy, worried, angry, impatient), becomes true for us and the affirmation takes more time to accomplish.
Some affirmations will be faster, and some will never come true. If we make ends meet, barely survive the month, feel bad, worried, and along the way repeat the affirmation ‘I have a lot of money’, I can buy Imac pro i7 4k desktop computer, our subconscious mind finds it hard to believe because our consciousness knows it’s not true.
I read somewhere that if we persistently repeat the same affirmation, that the subconscious will once again catch up with that belief. However, if we have no money, and we persistently repeat the affirmation ‘I have a lot of money’ or similar, and nothing changes, our body and our vibrations are taken over by frustration (and we keep repeating the same affirmation) and our affirmation simply vibrates at that frequency how we feel – frustrating and ‘wealth’ is moving away more and more every day.
I don’t have to mention that we didn’t achieve anything that way.
What can we do? Many articles and books have been written on the topic of affirmations and the law of attraction, and TV movies have been made. And you know it all. And you wrote in the mirror your affirmation that you repeat every day.
However, this is not as successful as you thought. If something fails, change tactics. If it applies to all other spheres of life, it also applies to the law of attraction. Do not reach for the finished product (affirmation) but write your own.
But to make it more successful for you, add ‘I’m in the process …’ at the beginning of the affirmation.
- I am in the process of getting rich.
- I am in the process of attracting a new / ideal job / career.
- I am in the process of winning the lottery.
- I am in the process of attracting the ideal boyfriend / girlfriend.
It is important that the affirmation is convincing for you. Repeat the affirmation out loud. If your subconscious mind rejects that affirmation in any way, or you hear a voice inside you that says – I’m not in the process of getting rich or anything like that – change the affirmation to be convincing for you. You have to believe that affirmation to become true for you.

Why are affirmations important for us?
Affirmations are important because they stimulate our mind, motivate our body and attract good fortune.
I would like to mention Newton’s 3rd law. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. What does this mean? We are talking about affirmations, not physics. Well, when you practice positive and good affirmation, you get a reaction. Positive and good people will surround you. When you have bad thoughts, you attract misfortune and negative energy.
Positive affirmations are an intervention of positive psychology that emerged in the middle of the last century.
Although it has since been attributed to numerous religious and cultural customs, this intervention has its scientific background and origins in positive psychology, ie psychotherapy that has made great strides in treating many disorders and promoting human well-being.
Positive affirmations are the product of positive psychology, a branch of psychology that explores the factors that enable individuals, families, and communities to develop, thrive, improve, and function optimally.
Positive psychology focuses on the sources of an individual’s psychological well-being, his positive experiences and positive emotions, individual differences in human strengths and virtues, positive institutions, and everything that makes life worth living.
Today, positive affirmations are often attributed to some spiritual and spiritual methods of meditation, and in fact it is a psychotherapeutic intervention that has existed for years. But due to the growing number of mental disorders in society, positive psychology is hard to break through among people because the emphasis is still on psychopathology.
It is indeed a radical act of love just to sit down and be quiet for a time by yourself” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Positive affirmations are simple statements that are designed to create a certain change for the better in the individual who uses them. In addition to being motivating, affirmations can also serve as inspiration or a simple reminder of one’s own virtues and strengths.
They can also serve to direct attention to certain goals during the week, and precisely because they are so simple and self-motivating, they act on a person much more powerfully than more complex statements.
Namely, our brain wants to simplify all the information we receive, which is why we are attracted to everything that is simple and logical, and easy to understand, such as a simple positive affirmation.
