Affirmations are small seeds that you plant in your mind. If you nurture them with faith, persistence, and positive feelings, they will grow and bear fruits you want.
So affirmation isn’t only done by thinking positive thoughts once. But it should be translate into words and eventually action. It is more effective if you say it often, more effective if you do it first thing in the morning. Say it loud, believe in it, live with it. It is a process, might be a long process but by consistently doing it all the positive thoughts that you have will surely radiates from you and that it will reciprocate goodness.
