“I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest.” Muhammad Ali
One of the most powerful things you can do in your life to ensure a consistently positive emotional state is to use affirmations.
Affirmations are statements that you make to yourself that you wish to be true. This is different to a belief, which is a statement that you hold to be true. Affirmations don’t necessarily have to be believed to be effective, however a belief in the possibility of the affirmation certainly helps it be more effective.
Affirmations are underpinned by the belief that what we language, we create in our life. Affirmations can be positive or negative. A famous positive affirmation penned by the early 20th century pharmacist Émile Coué is “Every day in every way , I am getting better and better.” This is also known as the Coué Method. He also discovered what came to be known as the “placebo effect” where the positive expectation by a patient of a drug’s efficacy would be enough to effect a cure, even when there was no trace of the drug in the prescription.
Affirmations are what we focus on, consistently and persistently.
