Positive Daily Affirmations for Achievement
You're Going to Be Shocked...

by Kevin Hogan

Most of you reading this article have probably heard of positive affirmations, and many of you have probably even used them. For those of you who have used them, I am betting the results were at best rather mixed.

Affirmation: "I weigh 120 pounds."
The unconscious mind responds appropriately and finds a way to punish you, often through some self-sabotage mechanism. The brain is a pretty amazing thing....

Yes affirmations can be helpful if repeated often enough and for long enough, but they're really not that impressive in the final analysis.

Self-brainwashing can work IF you get past the self-sabotage.

There is, however, a much more powerful method.
