Career & Life Advice: Affirmations

Affirmations have been long known to be powerful. I know I have heard many times, how words are more powerful than we think.

As I read one of my latest reads (Wishes Fulfilled by the late Wayne Dyer) in chapter 3, he talks about the two most powerful words in language “I am.” I went to bed before finishing the chapter. And then this morning I had the urge to read a few of the pages again.

As I reread those words “I am” and how they impact everything, made me think about affirmations. And the affirmations that I, unbeknownst to me, have been saying to myself all my life. Some good and some not so good.

  • I am smart
  • I am good at everything I try
  • I am persistent
  • I am flexible
  • I am short
  • I am impatient
  • I am a leader
  • I am not good at basketball
  • I am good at lifting
  • I am strong
  • I am …

I could go on but you get the picture.

This is nothing new, but today, I had an epiphany and I just had to share. Dyer’s words spoke deeply to me today, and reminded me that I AM is God’s first name. By saying I AM we are manifesting everyday and most of us are doing it without knowing and carelessly. It then makes me think of what I hear others say and how that impacts them.

So take the challenge with me and say from here on forward I AM going to use my words wisely. I AM going to inspire others to do the same.

How are you using I AM? Are you manifesting greatness?

  1. I am shocked how much positive affirmations have helped me in the past few years! I was never much of a believer until I really focused on the way they affected my thinking. Thanks for your input!
