Stop Using Affirmations for Success - Here is a New Way and Free Program!

by anwar001 40 replies
Warriors, have you been using affirmations in order to improve yourselves? Shall I show you something better and easier with faster results?

Affirmations are a popular self-help technique. They are used for various reasons like:
  • Develop some quality within ourselves
  • Change or replace a habit
  • Overcome addictions or negative behaviors
  • Overcome limiting beliefs and thoughts
  • Achieve goals, etc.

Most of us might have tried using affirmations in order to improve ourselves or try to achieve our goals. The problem with affirmations is that it takes time to see good results.

Let me explain with the help of an example:
"I have confidence in my ability to make practical decisions"

Now it is difficult to believe in the above affirmation if decision making is not your strong point. In order for you to start believing that affirmation, you need to repeat it many times over several days. This is alright if you have the discipline and patience for it. But if you don't have patience, you will give up soon and then go on saying to others that affirmations are a waste of time.

A Better Approach - Afformations:
Afformations are affirmations which are stated in the form of questions. Let us take the above affirmation example and reframe it as a question:

Affirmation: I have confidence in my ability to make practical decisions

Afformation:
Why do I have this ability to make practical decisions?

We ask a 'why' question about something we would like to achieve. The question assumes that we have already achieved what we want to achieve and asks yourself why you have achieved that.

Afformations concept was developed by Noah St. John. You can find more details at: afformations.com (no affiliate link)

The Principle Behind Afformations:
Afformations work on the principle that if you ask questions to yourself, your mind gets activated and does not rest until it finds satisfactory answers to the questions.

We ask ourselves questions all the time like - 'why did my previous project fail?' etc. With afformations, you are just changing the questions you ask yourself. You will now ask positive questions that can fetch positive answers.

Benefits of Afformations Over Affirmations:
  1. You can experience quicker results
  2. You can get bigger and better results
  3. No internal resistance as in case of affirmations
Free Afformations Program for You:

If you want to try out how good afformations can be, then I have created a simple program for you. When you run this program, it will flash success afformations on your computer screen. These messages will come and go away as you doing your usual work on your PC. They won't interfere with your work or cause any disturbance.

As you go about your usual work on computer, these messages will keep flashing and hopefully your mind will also keep working in the background to seek answers to these afformations.

Just run the program for few days and see if you notice a shift in your thinking, attitude and beliefs. You can vary the pace at which the messages are flashed on your monitor.

The Program Contains the Following Afformations:
  • Why do I find it easy to keep working hard at achieving my goals?
  • Why am I calm and at peace always?
  • Why am I enjoying the freedom in my life to do what I want and spend my time as I like?
  • Why am I successful, happy and fulfilled?
  • Why do I find my work enjoyable?
  • Why do I start and finish every work which I need to do, as soon as possible, without unnecessary postponing, no matter how difficult, boring or uncomfortable I find the given work?
The program is attached here and you can download it for your own personal use as well as share it with others if you like.

Hope you give it a try and benefit deeply from it. Don't forget to come back here and share your results.

    Interesting concept! It seems that if people say affirmations often enough speaking them out could become rote. Whereas your suggestion of using afformations to get the mind more involved seems to have merit.

    That may be why affirmations never worked for me - my mind tended to drift off into other areas even while I was repeating the affirmation. Asking questions does make one think about the answers.

      Ok, I shall make another program for all related to financial afformations. Let me know how this one goes.

      Let me share my small experience with you. I just used this program yesterday. I am a big-time procrastinator and keep on postponing small things if I find them boring to do.

      So I had a big list of tasks which needed to be finished and which were pending from many weeks. I just wasn't able to get around to doing them. After using this program for just 1 day, I was able to finish a lot of them without even forcing myself too much.

      Most of these tasks were small ones though. Would like to hear feedback of others too.

      The time frame might depend on many things. You might notice few good results within short time. But for big goals, it might take time. After listening to the afformations, you should begin to see changes in the way you approach work. There is an afformation for procrastination included in the program which I have found very useful and hope others do too.

      And I would also like other people to mention what afformations they would like included in the program so that I can release a new version with those included if there is a lot of demand for it. Thanks to all those who are trying this one out.

        Listening to your audio was engaging. Which brought me to this question, (perhaps as a result of listening). Asking yourself why questions, as your audios do, is said to engage the brain and subconcioius mind to attract the answer or result.

        For example Why am I getting richer?

        Would asking ... How have the save effect?

        For example ... How am I gettng richer?

        What does that do to the brain/subconcious mind dynamic?

        The reason I ask that is many of the classic books, ads and direct mail pieces use the How or How To word to grab peoples attention (or brains).

        What's your thoughts?

          I think that by asking questions you get your subconscious mind involved in a positive way, and this will ultimately help you attain success faster and more efficiently. I find that by asking such questions, possible answers and solutions come to me at the oddest times (such as when dreaming, walking my dog and doing things away from "work") - of course, it is the crucial action of asking these questions first that sets everything into motion.

          The Niche Man,

          "Why" is a very interesting question. And, it seems like any question would have a similar effect, because it would help you to suspend your judgement about your goal.

          I like to ask myself, "what would it be like if 'whatever' were true?" I instantly experience the goal as real, without having to "believe" anything about it.

          Doing that, I also get flooded with ideas about how to achieve the goal, AND I'm more compelled to take action. It's like mental rehearsal in sports, but less rigorous.

    Yeah great concept.

    The reason why this works is because the subconcious works based on questions.

    And if you notice the most miserable people on this earth are ALWAYS using WHY + NEGATIVE. And they have the most miserable life ever.

    So why dont do it the other way around right

      Hi All,

      If this concept is based on the concept of Afformations by Noah St John then I have used it for a long time.

      I will say, from my experience, that the way you pose the question can determine the outcome. How - is for more logical types of things like Michael Jackson would ask, how can I create the right beat for this song.

      Why is more action based in that you will have to, in most cases, use some of your own energy for outcome.

      The last ones I have used is, How is it that. Or How do I feel now that.

      Using the word feel helps increase my vibrations.

      Great idea to install on the computer. I have the MP3's and often forget to listen to them.

      If you could create one for money - i mean BIG money and also for attracting a marriage partner I would be interested.

          Is it something like auto-coaching?

          The strategy that works best for me is the following:
          Instead of "I can do it" I ask myself:

          1. Am I capable of doing it?
          2. Is it possible to do it? Has anyone ever done it before?
          3. How is it possible to do it?

          It also helps to write the #3 on a sheet of paper. And make a sort of a plan.

          I guess, this method is based on my deep belief that if one person ever done something, another person can do it again.

    i went for a walk and thought that we shouldn't stop using affirmations, but instead use them with this concept of afformations.

    you can ask the question "why, how" with afformations and receive your answer and use affirmations to solidify the receipt of that answer.

    just a thought

      Be careful of doing too many things at the same time. Sometimes they can either dilute, conflict or simply drain your focus, which most self-improvement exercises require to work effectively.

        I agree, i was doing affirmations, afformations, EFT and listening to subliminals and was getting no where fast.

        When I either did afformations alone, things were happenening.

        When I wrote down affirmations like Big MONEY to Me now - B$TMN 77x day, big money was flowing.

        What do you find most effective @ Niche?

          Thanks for sharing your ideas and experience with us. Can I know when you wrote big money to me now, so many times each day, what would you do with the paper on which you had written these? Would you throw away those papers or keep them safe?

          I ask this because I had read that if you throw away the paper, it would send a signal to your brain that you don't value your goals. But keeping those papers safe everyday is too much of a bother. So I want to know what did you do?

    At the top of the page of paper I would write the amount of money I required that was most pressing. In other words, if your immediate requirement is $5,000, write that. I wouldnt recommend $10 million or anything like that.

    I number the left side of the page 1 to 77 and then I write, B$TMN and say it aloud.

    Sometimes I accumalate pages in a pad or notebook and eventually toss away. Sometimes I toss right away if I use loose leaf paper.

    The key, I believe is to command it and feel it and then let it go. When thoughts arise that it's impossible, write down, I receive money from unexpected sources this week, or I am happy, thankful and grateful now that I received money from unexpected sources this week (examples).

  • Hi Anwar,
    It is always with unexpected delight when I come upon a new concept that may prove to be very helpful. I really like the concept of afformations! It is often very productive to use a method that preempts the mind from censoring or altering our original desire before delivery.

    I will definitely give this new method a try. There is nothing like testing out any reasonable new concept that might prove to be a great addition to my tool box of success.
