How To Use Positive Affirmations To Achieve BIG Results

Eleanor Beaton
Affirmations: inspiring, motivating… but not always effective. That’s because there is a right way AND a wrong way to use affirmations.

To use an affirmation effectively, it should be designed to accomplish one BIG task: to reinforce your results producing process.

So… how do you do that?

In this episode of Power Play, I lay out the formula you need to create the powerful affirmations that will help you achieve BIG results.

What affirmations do YOU use to achieve your goals?


Episode Transcript

You have heard about the importance of affirmations, but I see affirmations used the wrong way all the time.

The correct way to use an affirmation is to use it so that it reinforces your results producing process or your goal.

For example, let’s say you work in sales. And you know that the results producing process associated with closing sales is to make phone calls or to book meetings. So what you would want to do is to create an affirmation around that results producing process and repeat and read that affirmation to yourself day after day.

So an example might be something like this. You know you have a particular sales target that you want to reach, and so you say you know my intention is to close X dollar value in sales by this time. In order to achieve this goal, I will make five outbound sales calls each and every day no matter what.

That is a powerful affirmation because it reinforces something that’s inside your control: your actions and your behavior. And when you affirm to yourself, day after day, taking the right actions, the great results are always a natural byproduct of that results producing process, of that results producing action.

So use affirmations to reinforce in your own mind you taking appropriate results producing action.
