I just finished reading The 100 Most Powerful Affirmations for Social Problems by Jason Thomas. The writer starts by explaining how affirmations work. He also said affirmations should be positive and actionable.
Here are a few examples:
- I am strong in my values and confident in my abilities.
- I have the ability to plan, organize, and do.
- I am resilient and fierce.
- I have the power within me to create the life I desire.
I must admit, the whole thing seems a bit silly to me. Has anyone actually tried using affirmations? If so, did you notice any benefit?
