To affirm is “to state positively or with confidence” according to Merriam-Webster. This concept is the basis of all sales and marketing processes, teaching, research, and so many other processes and supports in our lives. Another aspect to affirming is confirming. Confirming is defined by the dictionary wizards at Merriam-Webster as “to give new assurance of the validity of, remove doubt about by authoritative act or indisputable fact.” When we use personal affirmations, we begin with affirming and a goal of confirming.
Affirmations are statements that move us away from negative thought patterns to ones that are more supportive, healing, and goal oriented. Affirmations are positive statements about how we live, work and relate. They work with the brain’s ability to adapt, change, and learn from different situations that emerge in our lives. This is called neuroplasticity. This neuroplasticity is what makes affirmations work.
Affirmations can change how we think and feel about ourselves. They can spark associated areas of the brain as if have already achieved those things we are affirming. They can rewire and retrain the brain through repetition and focus. They drive action to the very goals and ideas they frame. Scientific research has shown affirmations coupled with action are powerful steps toward goal achievement and well-being.
Affirmations are tools that anyone can adapt and A Sandy Place is offering a way to learn how. March’s 90 minute online seminar is called Affirmations Affirm.
