What’s the power of an affirmation? Is it true that our thoughts become our words and then our actions?
I had this question when I embarked on my personal development journey to better deal with difficult thoughts and emotions. I wanted the freedom to choose my own thoughts and inner dialogue, rather than letting my mind run me.
But how does one achieve that? For me, much of the power of positive thought comes from writing, saying and meditating on affirmations. When my inner dialogue is pleasant, I can trust life and myself. These are some powerful words of affirmation I sometimes use:
