It's been a week since I started using daily positive affirmations, and I'm seeing some interesting results so far.

There's definitely been a positive effect. I've been in a few negative situations over the past week, and when my usual reaction of feeling down started, my affirmations kicked in and I booted out the offending thoughts. It was certainly an uplifting experience.

If you've ever heard of the "Law of Belief", you'll probably recognise what's happening. The Law of Belief postulates that people behave in a manner consistent with their beliefs. It's a simple principle that can have powerful results, but most people only ever experience the negative effects.

For example, if you sit on your own, slouch down and say to yourself "I'm such a failure", then that's exactly what you'll be! Having this negative belief will do you no good at all, and will only help to reinforce your feelings.

The good news is that you can choose to believe whatever you want, and that is a very powerful tool for personal development. Affirmations will help you reinforce positive beliefs, and banish those limiting negative beliefs.
