How to use this list?

Affirmations became popular because of the core idea they are based on - the belief that our thought patterns shape reality around us as much as our personalities, and this can be changed. It can be changed by television, advertising, our parents, teachers, friends, lovers, and most importantly ourselves. We can use affirmations as a tool to control the way we are thinking, the way we perceive the world, the way we feel. This change doesn't happen overnight however, and we need to invest a solid portion of our time and effort in it. 

A good way to start your affirmation journey is by reading this list a few times first thing in the morning. Later you'll be able to adjust it better into your schedule and see how much time you're willing to spend on repeating these affirmations yourself. When I discovered the power of positive thinking my life was pretty hectic, so I had to find a creative approach to fit it in. The solution was recording my list of affirmations and playing it while I was getting to work for solid 30 minutes each morning. I found it so effective, so uplifting, and inspiring that couldn't start my weekends without it after that. And this is the best thing about positive thinking. It does make you feel better about yourself. And once you feel this difference, you don't want to go back.
