I am hardworking.
I work hard.
I am free from laziness.
Here are some tips on writing effective affirmations:
- They should be in the present tense, so your mind will feel empowered to act on your goals right now.
- They should be very personal for them to actually work on your life, so do use the first person perspective.
To begin, just stick with around three to five affirmations. To use these positive affirmations, all you have to do is keep on repeating them to yourself. You can do this first thing in the morning when you wake up, and again before you go to sleep at night. You can also insert a few recitations whenever you’re free during the day. In fact, you can use them to help you pass the time while riding on the subway, waiting at a traffic light, standing in lines, and so on. Every time you recite the affirmations to yourself, you are actually communicating directly with your subconscious mind.
Repeat them daily. To fully leave laziness behind, repeat your positive affirmations every day. This way, your subconscious will be focused on your goal to overcome laziness and it will work double time to help you achieve that goal.
If you use the affirmations for a long time, they will turn from being mere thoughts to being beliefs. In other words, the subconscious mind will think that the affirmation is actually true. Thus, it applies changes into your life to make it consistent to that belief.
This means your mind will believe that you are not lazy, so it will produce the actions and behaviors of someone who is definitely not lazy. After all, the mind won’t tolerate any discrepancy between reality and its beliefs.
With your subconscious mind cooperating with you, solving your laziness problem will be really easy.v
