Using affirmations to achieve your goals

Using affirmations to achieve your goals

One of the key ways to stay on track with your goals and ultimately achieve them is to write them down. Using goal focused affirmations keeps your goals top of mind and so you’re far more likely to achieve them. You will also be training your mind to believe that the achievement of your goals is a given. Achieving your goals in many cases in down to the person’s mindset and belief that they will achieve. A positive mindset counts for so much. Through use of affirmations you can develop this positive focused mindset.


Not sure exact what an affirmation is? An affirmation is a sentence or two that helps to reinforce a positive thought. Here are some examples;


  • I don’t sweat the small stuff
  • I am adventurous. I overcome fears by following my dreams
  • I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness
  • I will not compare myself to strangers on the Internet

Goals are not achieved in a single day, they are the culmination of forming a habit to chip away at the actions you need to take to achieve your goals. Forming habits is so important to achievement and you can’t form a habit without a positive mindset. If you’re constantly having to force yourself to get out of bed early (hating every second) you won’t stick to it for long! Focus, habit and a positive mindset are key to goal achievement.


Focus is important because;


  • Focus allows your to prepare for problems
  • Focus makes your desires more concrete
  • Focus helps you create a long term plan


Affirmations will not automatically mean you will achieve whatever you want. You still need to show up in the right way and have the willpower and the drive to stick to your goal-achieving habit. Start saying goal affirmations twice a day and you should notice an impact on your positivity.
