1) Phrase them as if they are occurring in the now.
For eg. If your outcome is to become a more confident person, a suitable affirmation might be: ‘I am becoming more and more confident. I am feeling better and better about myself’.
2) Phrase affirmations in terms of what you want rather than what you don’t want.
3) Pick affirmations that resonate with you the most
4) Energy follows thought.
5) Many books recommend that affirmations are repeated out aloud hundreds of times each day. This way is effective too. However, saying them out loud has a deeper impact.
