Do Daily Affirmations Really Work?

Not surprised you asked.

After all, few things can boast of landing you a dream job or partner by saying a few words.

So it’s no surprise you want to confirm if it’s worth your time before diving in. And if you’re like me, it almost sounds too good to be true.

In fact, if you called b.s. a few years ago to someone saying you could have the good things in life…

Land a new job, get a raise, or find yourself a dream house by simply saying a bunch of words…

I’d be right there supporting you. Calling the person a fraud. Or ignorant, at best.

But now? My mind’s in a different place.

Thanks to daily (and positive) affirmations I’ve attracted a bunch of things I’m eternally grateful for.

Like a supportive wife and family. Plus a brand new car at the start of the year.

So if you’ve wrestled with the question: “Do daily affirmations work?”

Here’s the short answer, yes.

For the long answer, we’ll dive into the deep end of the affirmation sea to uncover a few treasures.

And by the time you start practicing what you’ll discover on this page…

You’ll walk around feeling so good people will wonder why.

How do daily affirmations work?


At first thought, it might seem like fantasy. But there’s a whole lot going on behind the scenes that gives affirmations so much power.

You see, if you repeat something to yourself long and often enough, it starts to shape your thoughts and reality.

That’s the underlying principle behind why they work so well.

The way you speak to yourself is important. Because it forms a solid foundation for your thoughts and feelings to build on.

You see, our brains are pretty clever. Feeding your mind positive beliefs through your words rewires your brain to see yourself in a whole new light.

It’s giving your best self the attention it deserves. With this, your manifestations are stronger because you feel more confident.

Remember, aligning your feelings with what you want is how you manifest the things you wish to achieve.

And there’s no better way to do this like affirmations

As you say the words, watch as you feel a change in energy inside you. It’s almost surreal.

That change? That feeling you get when you say something good about yourself?

Well, that’s your subconscious slowly adjusting as you install a new belief system.

Now before we continue, it’s important you see affirmations as a double edged sword.

Meaning they can work for you or against you. So you’ve got to create the right ones.

The next part shows you how.

How to create powerful affirmations that work

Good and bad. Yin and Yang. Sugar and Vinegar

Well, you kinda get the point – for every right way to do something, there’s a wrong way that can ruin your efforts.

Luckily for you, I’ve got a few rules to unleash all the power inside affirmations.

They’ll guide you to create your own. And provide you with insights to spot great ones.

You can also see them as tips if you like.

So let’s get into it:

1. Keep them positive.

This comes first above all else. It’s vital you stay in the zone of positivity with ALL your manifestations.

No negative words. Or phrases that reinforce negativity.

They only block your desires from manifesting.

Like I said, positive words are like fuel in your manifestation journey. Because they align your energy with the goals or desires you want to achieve.

For example, let’s take a look at two affirmations for someone that wants to escape a stressful job to a new I.T job.

E.g 1 “I now have an enjoyable and fun I.T job.”

E.g 2 “I’m tired of my current job”

No. 1 is the clear winner.

It keeps things fun, and positive. Which is how you want yours to be like.

2. Stay in the present.

This is a common area most people get wrong.

They think: “I want a better job, house or lifestyle in the future”

So they go ahead and create their affirmations in the future tense.

Well, that poses a big problem. Why?

Because your desires get stuck in the future. And we both know you want them in your life like right now.

A key part of the law of attraction is the “power of present”

Whether it’s being fully present in your manifestations. Or saying your affirmations in the present tense.

The goal is to say your desires like you already have them.

Here are some examples.

-Low self-esteem? : “I am confident and comfortable in my own skin.”

-Hate your job?:. “I have a wonderful [insert dream job]

-Want to lose weight?:. “I love how my body looks”

3. Keep things short.

Brevity shows clarity. It highlights the fact that you’re sure about the things you want.

And this is great for you. Because you radiate a special kind of energy the universe will pick up on and send some goodies your way.

Short affirmations are quality ones. And they stand out due to their straight-to-the-point nature.

How To Do Affirmations

After nailing down the creation process of affirmations, it’s time to put them to use.

By now, you should have a few on your mind or a piece of paper.

So let’s look at a few ways to get them to work for you.

1 Repeat them everyday.

Some people are confused about the right frequency for affirmations.

In my experience, anything from three times a day upwards is fine.

The key to success with anything – especially affirmations, is consistency.

Daily commitment speeds up the process of attracting your desires.

Plus, it reinforces positive thoughts that shape your life. And transform you into the person you want to become.

2. Stay positive.

It takes a huge amount of conscious effort to stay positive.

So I know it’s not always easy. But just like the words you came up with for your affirmations, you’ve got to a bring a positive attitude each time you say them.

A good way to get into this state is to think of something that’s working in your life.

Could be anything. Just make sure it’s positive so you can slip into the right state of mind.

3. Say them in front of a mirror

This adds a really fun twist to things.


Because in this section you’re going to say your affirmations in first, second, and third person.

Like this:

“I love….”

“You love….”

“[Insert your name ] loves….”

Pretty simple, and fun too.

So it’s You, I, then your name attached to the rest of the affirmation.

Hard to stay sad while doing this one, eh?

When to use affirmations.

It’s time to zoom in on negative events where affirmations serve as useful tools.

I call this the magic pill effect. Because these events infect our mood and drop our energy levels.

Plus, if we’re being honest, it’s almost impossible to stay away from them 24/7.

Affirmations help us challenge negative thoughts or feelings these events create in us.

Here are just few scenarios you can use affirmations:

-When you’re feeling stuck and unsure of your next move.

-When your vibes off and you’re not sure why. They’ll raise your energy so you give off higher vibrations.

-When you’ve got a new goal you want to achieve

Final Thoughts

So it’s a wrap.

Affirmations are words. And words have immense power to shape your life into something you’ll be proud of.

The more you tell yourself how amazing you are or your situation is, the faster you can attract good things into your life.
