This post is part of my #MondayMotivation Blog Post Series. I wanted to share with you the things that helped me change my life, and the ways I’m still using them to stay positive and happy. If you want to read the rest of the posts here they are:
Your thoughts create your reality. If you read the previous #MondayMotivation post, you’ll know why and how. I bet you all want a happy life right? So you need to start with the way you think. We all have been doing negative thoughts through our lives, and especially when we are in a bad situation, or when we have to deal with a problem. I’ve been doing this a lot in the past (and even sometimes now), but now that I know how the Law of Attraction works, I realized that with negative thinking you’re only going to bring more bad situations in your life.
A few months ago, back in April, I visited my father. We live in different cities because of my parents’ divorce so I can’t see him regularly. My father helped me the last few years to change my life drastically by using and understanding the Law of attraction with simple tricks. When I visited him I was in a really weird “emotional” state, and I was comparing myself to others continuously. Especially for my body image and my blog career. So he introduced me to the power of affirmations.
He started with a really simple example. Let’s say that you want to become a great athlete. What do you need to do?
- Maintain a good physical condition.
- Practice. Consistently and repeatedly.
- Find your “why”, so when times get hard, your “why” will still drive you towards your goal.
These 3 things are something like the “formula” for success. Not only for athletes but for almost everything in your life. In the Law of Attraction, this “formula” is the Practice of Affirmations. They make sure that you’re in a great physical condition (thinking positive), you have to use them daily and when you use them you experience your desired feelings and that is your “why”.
But what Affirmations are exactly?
Affirmations are specific statements that help you overcome negative thoughts and create new thinking patterns in the brain for positive mental, emotional, and physical changes. They are pretty powerful when you’re totally focused on them and the feelings you get. They create a pretty incredible vibration for everything you want to attract in your life.
Affirmations work because they program your mind to believe the statement you’re saying. As I said in the last #MondayMotivation post, all our beliefs, reactions, and thinking patterns are in our subconscious mind. So when you repeatedly use an affirmation, you add it to your subconscious and it becomes a belief. Soon enough you’ll see your life changing, and your subconscious will make sure to keep reminding you of your beliefs every time something comes up.
What do you want in your life?
Since Affirmations are pretty powerful, I wanted to make sure I’ll use them right. So I sat with my father and wrote a list with the things I really want in my life. This was my list:
- Peace and Balance
I think these are the things that everyone wants in their lives. When I saw that they are 7, I immediately thought “one for each day of the week!”. Then with a little help from Google and Pinterest, I created 7 affirmation cards. Today I’ll share with you some of my affirmations and how I use them. What’s really wonderful about this practice is that you can create whatever affirmation you want. Whatever makes you happy.
When I was writing down my affirmations for my cards, I instantly felt so much happiness. Like I already had all these “things”. I can’t explain to you the way I was feeling. Like I already had everything! So I decided to use each card for every day of the week. I dedicate every day about 10 minutes in the morning and sometimes when I’m in the office (for a little mood boost) to read my card out loud and focus on each affirmation. Or when I feel a little bit sick I’m using my “Health” card more, or when I need a confidence boost I’m using my “Confidence” card. Feel free to create your own cards. Be creative!

The Power of Affirmations
As I said before the beauty of Affirmations is that you can create your own, exactly as you want them. Write them down. Search the web for inspiration and create your own affirmation cards. It’s important to write them down because you’re much more focused when you do. Dedicate some minutes of your day to your affirmations. Be present to each and every sentence. To every word that comes out of your mouth. Feel it deep inside your heart, Believe it!
We are all here in this world for a reason. We have this amazing life full of opportunities, full of amazing experiences and amazing people. I refuse to believe that we just appeared here. Every thought that you have, every dream came to you for a reason. You deserve the best in life, for you and for the people around you. So take this opportunity, grow, learn and manifest your life! You have the power, you have the knowledge, many people did it before you, so use what you have in order to become the best version of yourself.
This is going to be my last #MondayMotivation post (for now). My plan from the beginning was to write 4 posts with everything I’m using to live a positive and happy life. I hope I motivated or even inspired a few people to change their lives because we all deserve a happy life. We really do. Next week I’m going to publish a post with some inspiring quotes from these 4 #MondayMotivation posts so you can pin them or share them to inspire and motivate more people.
