By David B. Nelson

Positive daily affirmations can help you to reprogram your mind from the negative self talk that you have had for years. For this to work effectively, you need to repeat positive statements of a desirable outcome like a mantra on a daily basis a few times per day.Positive daily affirmations help to redirect your values, formulate goals for success or simply help you to boost your self confidence. They can be used to improve areas such as wealth, success, health, relationships or self esteem.Here are 10 tips to writing effective Positive Daily Affirmations.Develop Them Yourself. Self-developed affirmations are the most effective positive daily affirmations. If you couple them with clearly defined written goals and applied faith, their power is even stronger.

It is good to know what positive affirmations are, but what can they actually DO for you? When you don't have a positive outlook on life, you are much more likely to dread going to work, to be upset that you don't earn enough money, or even that you don't have the life that you really want. That may sound familiar, as that is the way that most people in the world think today. However, if you could reprogram your mind to view these points in a different light, you would find your situation improving. This is where positive affirmations come into play.

Make Positive Daily Affirmations Short And Clear. First, because your experience will create the conditions that allow affirmations to manifest, word the affirmations carefully to make them crystal-clear. State your real, innermost desires and articulate your most expansive sense of self. Affirmations based on a narrow self-concept deliver results that fall short, cause suffering, and further diminish the sense of self.

If you, using positive affirmations, reprogram your mind to think of your current job as a way to get to where you want to be, you will give off an attitude of greater confidence and comfort in who you are and what you are doing. People around you will start to notice that attitude, and make note of who you are. Soon, you will have people coming to you, simply because they want to be seen with someone who is so positive in life. This will lead to job offers from areas that you may have coveted but never thought you would actually get. Soon, your positive attitude alone will lead to that job that you were seeking for all those years, or perhaps one even better. All of this begins with a simple positive affirmation such as "I will reach beyond where I am today/"

You can find lists and lists of affirmations on the Internet and in books, but creating your own positive affirmations that directly relate to your situation will create better results and more motivation. It is important to remember to take your time when constructing your list of affirmations. Think deeply about what it is you want and if you truly want those things. Remember, the process of affirmations (creating, saying daily) are much more important than the outcome.

Almost any self help book that you read will stress the importance of positive affirmations and for good reason. The way that we think has a huge impact on what we can and can't accomplish. Therefore the first step in achieving most goals in convincing yourself that you can do it.

Positive affirmations are simply short statements that you make to yourself with the goal of changing the way that you think. The idea is to get rid of negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. The reason that this is important is that it is our beliefs that largely determine what we can and can't do. If you believe that you can accomplish something there is a pretty good chance that you can, if you believe that you can't the chances that you will are very low.

Whenever you are trying to tell yourself something, either by thought or by saying it out loud, you are affirming yourself of something. We are constantly affirming ourselves to do something, change something or achieve something. All our affirmations are a manifestation of our inner beliefs and truths. Most of the affirmations we have are acquired at a tender age, hence they are deeply rooted in our subconscious mind as we grow. Most of our responses to every situation are an automatic adaptation from the way we were raised. This is because our subconscious mind uses memories, feelings and everything that has been stored over a period of time since we encountered it.

In order for affirmations to work you have to use them regularly, everyday is ideal. The more you tell yourself something the more likely it is that you will come to believe it. Once you believe something it can be very hard to change your mind. This is why you have to use the positive affirmations consistently, it is very hard to change your negative beliefs. The good news however is that once you reach the point where you believe the positive thoughts it will be very difficult to change your mind.You can use positive affirmations to change almost any belief that you want. That means that for any goal that you have you will be able to find a positive affirmation that will help you achieve it. There are lots of books that you can use to find them or you can even make them up yourself. If you are going to make them up yourself you are going to have to make sure that you word them correctly so you will need to take a little bit of time to learn how to do this.
