Affirmations in New Thought and New Age terminology refer primarily to the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment—fostering a belief that "a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything."


So do you have any positive affirmations that you use daily? What are your thoughts on positive affirmations? Are they a good thing or bad? What do you think?

Enjoy!!!

Positive affirmations are good, some people need/are greatly aided by the sense of reassurance it gives and changes the shape of their persona a great deal! I don't think they're bad, it just depends on the person. I don't personally have any that I use daily, but i'll have my occasional moments in which I'll mention to myself something on the optimistic side and for a couple of minutes I'll feel determined to do something.

Always, it's important to stay positive well to me anyway.

I think they're a good thing if it helps ya succeed and be a positive and optimistic person.

While I don't know much about this, I tend to think positive affirmation is not the best mindset. We are all stupid and childish, and probably evil too, and we constantly overestimate ourselves and underestimate the universe. I'd say the thing to avoid is catastrophizing: since we're all so dumb, we shouldn't think that our worries and fears are well-founded, or that everything will end in the worst possible way. Understanding I'm dumb actually makes me feel better about things.

I'm always neutral or negative because when I get too happy, something bad always happens.

That's not true, you just have to see the better things in life

I don't even understand what these things are about, but it sounds like they're for people who are insecure that try to brainwash themselves into feeling better. If it works for them, good job. I don't need them and will never use them. Every day is already a good day for me.

I amplify my energy centers, cram the energy of some together until it appears at another energy center - and the tear ducts, sinuses, salivary glands are all refreshed in the process

Without positive affirmations, the world would be a pretty horrible place to live.

I think positive affirmations are a good thing, but they aren't omnipotent. It can help to be positive, but it certainly doesn't guarantee success.
