Positive Affirmations for success

Positive affirmations for success are one of the most powerful tools you can use in your quest for happiness, fulfillment, and an awesome life. Once you have identified things in your life that you would like to transform, creating and using affirmations can really bring positive changes.

What are positive Affirmations?

Positive affirmations are statements that you make to yourself. These statements help to create a winning mindset by training you to believe that the change you want to see is already in the process of happening. The most powerful affirmations are phrased to be immediate and personal.

PHrase affirmations in the now

If you want to find and do work that you love, try positive affirmations for success such as, ‘I am now creating my perfect career.’

Affirmations train your subconscious to believe that what you want is not only possible, but that it is already happening. It is important to phrase your affirmations in the present and not future tense.

Rather than saying, ‘I will achieve financial success,’ say, ‘I am now creating financial success,’ and by using affirmations, this is true!

With this positive affirmation, you are creating the positive mindset that will empower you to create the physical reality you want.

It also helps you to attract the opportunities you need to create that reality.


Try adding an affirmation like, ‘the perfect opportunities are opening up.’  This helps you to trust that the chances and situations that you need in order to create the success you want are coming to you.

While you should also keep actively taking practical steps to move toward your goal, affirming that opportunities will come to you helps you to magnetize these circumstances without needing to make too much effort.

Adding a phrase like, ‘easily and effortlessly,’ to the beginning or end of your positive affirmations for success also helps to lift the pressure of having to try and ‘make things happen.’

Although I don’t suggest that you become totally passive, trying too hard to force things to happen doesn’t usually work. Trying too hard can actually have the opposite effect to what you want.

A phrase I love is from author Barry Stevens- ‘Don’t push the river, it flows anyway’ - a reminder to let the forces of nature do their job.

Benefits of Using Positive Affirmations for Success

Affirmations can help you to see clearly what needs to be done in order for change to happen, and to gain the confidence and motivation to take the steps that you need to take towards reaching any goal.

They can clear your vision greatly. Often the steps that we could take to bring greater happiness are right in front of us, but our minds can be so clouded with negative thoughts, confusion, and limiting beliefs, that we don’t see what’s right there.

Create Affirmations You Can Believe

When working with affirmations, as in any area of mindset training (or physical training!), it is important that you don’t try to go from couch potato to marathon winner overnight.

 You have to take gradual steps, and build up your mindset muscles and your receptivity to new beliefs a little at a time.

 Make your affirmations just a little bit more aligned with your goal than your current beliefs, and then repeat them as much as you can until they begin to be your beliefs.

 Once walking around the block feels comfortable (either metaphorically or literally), you can kick it up a notch, until eventually you are running.

How to Make Affirmations Work

Positive affirmations for success work by reprogramming your thinking and beliefs, and this requires commitment and consistency.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of frequent and continued repetition. Persistence is the key to making affirmations work.

Once you decide which particular area of success you want to focus on, create one or more positive affirmations stating that this goal is already being achieved. Then use your affirmation(s) every day.

Ways of Using Affirmations

The ways you can include the use of positive affirmations for success in your life are many and varied.

You can say them aloud, say them silently, read them, and write them. Read them aloud and record it. Play the recording in your car, while you cook dinner, even while you sleep. Make posters or little notes of your affirmations and place them around your home and workplace. Use them as your computer screensaver.

One of my favorite ways to use affirmations is to match them to my breathing. As I breathe in for four counts, I silently say, ‘I am easily and effortlessly,’ and on the breath out for four counts I continue, ‘creating an amazing website.’ I repeat this many, many times - sometimes while I am driving my car, other times while I am exercising. Taking a long walk in a beautiful place while repeating affirmations can give a wonderful feeling of mental and physical well-being.

Affirmations Work if You Work Them

Whatever it is you want to create in your life, and however you choose to use positive affirmations for success, with patience and repetition, you will find that they work!

Using affirmations will bring a noticeable shift to both your thinking and your circumstances as you move steadily in the direction of success.
