  • There is a certain knack to writing affirmations. Follow these 3 simple rules and you will be on your way to living a more positive and fulfilling life.

    1. Choose Positive Words - Be sure to keep your focus on the positive. 
    2. No Negativity Allowed - Negative statements negate the purpose of affirmations. 
    3. Stay Present - Keep your statements in the present. The Past is Past... leave it there. Futurist statements distract us from being present in the moment.

    A statement such as I WILL BE RICH ONE DAY has the word-power to keep a person in poverty because the focus is that richness will come later. Later never comes, as we are always living in NOW. An example of a positive prosperity affirmation would read like this: I AM RICH or TODAY I AM PROSPEROUS.
