How do I come up with my own positive affirmations?

Dr. Kathleen Hall
Preventive Medicine

To create your own positive affirmations:

  • Decide what area of your life you want to transform by creating a positive affirmation: work, health, success, happiness, family, love, or money.
  • Make your affirmations in the present tense: "I am" or "I have." Your subconscious mind will hear that it is in the present, not in the future.
  • If you feel you are afraid of not being loved when you are your real authentic Self, make an affirmation like "People love me when I am myself." If you feel you don't earn enough money, maybe make an affirmation such as "My income is now increasing."
