What Should You Do If Affirmations Don’t Work?

I believe there is a major flaw with affirmations. And I suspect that I’m not the only one who feels this way.

I used to repeat the things for YEARS. I had stickers all over my bedroom wall, I repeated them out loud every day and… nothing.

After what seemed like an eternity, I was still miserable, the future was bleak, and I certainly didn’t get rich.

Luckily, I had a eureka moment. In the shower (obviously).

Problem? What problem?
Problem? What problem?

Our Brains are Wired to Solve Questions

When you repeat an affirmation you don’t believe in, what’s your first response?

Yeah, right..!

“I am rich and successful.” Yeah, right..!

“I am going to meet the love of my life next week.” Yeah, of COURSE I will.

“I am a talented athlete.” Sure..!

When your affirmations don’t work, what advice do you get? Keep repeating it until it (eventually) becomes true! How long is THAT going to take?!

On the flip side, our minds are wired to look for solutions to questions, not statements.

As soon as you ask a question, you automatically start looking for an answer:

Why is the sky blue?

Even if you don’t know the answer to the question, you will look for any evidence you think can help you. Maybe because of the…

So instead of trying to convince yourself of something you don’t believe, why not try asking a question?

Turn Your Affirmations Into Questions

Affirmations are just incomplete questions. Instead of “I am rich,” ask yourself,Why am I rich?”.

You get a totally different (and automatic) response:

I can afford water, shelter, and food…

I can start putting money into savings soon…

I have a steady paycheck…

Instead of trying to believe in a statement, you are now looking for all the reasons why you are rich, which is a much more effective and empowering way in attracting positive things into your life.

This is a revolutionary method of positive statements, very similar to expressing gratitude.

This Changes Everything

I never realized just how powerful this is.

After I started asking myself questions instead of repeating affirmations, my life transformed before my eyes.

My days were full of gratitude instead of just waiting around for something to happen. My wishes became a reality in record time and I’ve been sharing my discovery ever since.

Don’t get me wrong – affirmations work. But not for everybody.

Some of us just haven’t built up the self-belief or don’t trust that affirmations will work.

This is your solution. I hope you try it and it serves you well.
