Affirmations without emotional intent don’t work

Affirmations Don’t Work Unless …

Affirmations without emotional intent don’t work. You can stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself how great you are all day but no change will come. Those thoughts have to be associated with your positive emotions. On average, a human processes 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts a day, even while we sleep. Some of these thoughts need to be reawaken, so it’s a good idea to read affirmations and come up with your own from time to time.

– This Day

This day, I thankfully accept all of the good things that are coming my way.
This day is full of excitement, love, energy, health, and prosperity.
This day, people are calling on me to be of service to them and I respond
by giving my very best. This day, I think and practice health in my life, refusing
to accept anything less than perfect health. This day, I accept the abundance and
prosperity that is mine and willingly share it with others. This day, I focus on the
moment and give no thought to the past or to the future. This day, I spend in total
enjoyment of what I do. This day, I fill with loving thoughts and actions toward all
other people and myself. This day, I spend in grateful appreciation of all that is
mine. This day, this hour, this minute, this moment is all that I have
and I choose to use it in celebration.

“Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before
you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give.”
– William A. Ward

– Evolve Your Thoughts

  • Life is simple.
  • You create your life: the good and the bad.
  • Love, service, and giving must be the motives of your life.
  • Money is easy and comes to you as the result of serving others.
  • Service often comes disguised as work.
  • You can be healthy and do not have to suffer sickness.
  • You live the life you choose to live.
  • You can change.
  • Words are powerful and shape the circumstances of your life.
  • Thoughts are creative and control your outcome.
  • Trust your feelings.
  • Whining and refusing to take responsibility kill your chances of success.
  • Results never lie.
  • Most people are lazy and need to get off their butts and do something.
  • All good is rewarded.
  • Rich makes up for a whole lot of ugly.
  • Guilt serves no purpose.
  • Worry is a waste of time and energy.
  • Personal satisfaction comes only when you rise above the approval of others.
  • Everything in life gets better when you get better and nothing gets better until you get better.
  • When it comes to kids, remember: They grow out of it.
  • God is the Presence of Good and the Action of Love.
  • The less people have to say, the more they feel compelled to say it.
  • Love your work and by loving it you will become excellent at it and well rewarded.
  • It is wonderful to have lots of stuff, but it takes more than stuff to make you happy.
  • Never say anything stupid like, “It just can’t get any worse than this!” That is a challenge you do not want to issue to the Universe, it can always get worse.
  • Fun should be a way of life, not something you have from time to time.
  • Everything in life is a lesson. Refusing to learn the lesson means that it will be repeated until the lesson is learned.
  • In the long run, none of this really matters much anyway so there is no need to get your panties in a wad.

– These are the short lessons that are sometimes hard to learn and hard to accept. They do not need a chapter to explain them. They do not even need a paragraph. They just need to be stated, understood, and accepted. –

  • When people tell you how rich they are, chances are they are not.
  • When people tell you how intelligent they are, they actually are proving how little they know, not how much they know.
  • When people tell you how successful they are, chances are they are not.
  • When people tell you what a devout Christian they are, especially more than once, they are usually anything but.
  • When people tell you how honest they are, keep your hand on your wallet.
  • When people say, “let me be frank with you,” it means in the past they have not been.
  • When people say, “and that’s the truth,” be skeptical.
  • When people say, “let me tell you this for your own good,” it is for their own good, not yours.
  • When people say, “I only have one thing to say about that,” be prepared for a lot more than one thing to follow.
  • When people say, “I’ll try,” do not count on it.

Things like honesty, integrity, intelligence, success, and most other good things do not need to be said or bragged about or crammed down someone’s throat. They show. You do not even have to talk about them. They are just there. Proof is always in the action, not the words. Actions say what you believe and the kind of person you are much more than your words. Results are everything and they never lie.

Good portion of this has come from “Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life” by Larry Winget


  1. Worry is a waste of time and energy.

    – This makes sense because everytime we worry, we tend to limit ourselves in all activities that might help us achieve success. Based from my experience, this is proven right. I also developed that mindset wherein I need to 100% ready when making a decision. Always on the safe side, I almost forgot to take the risk.
