Me, But Better was created to be a tool for people like you who want to improve themselves and achieve more in their lives.

An affirmation is a proven way of programming your mind so that you think and behave in ways that support your personal success. Affirmations are an antidote to the negative messages we are bombarded with in the media and a way for you to eradicate self-sabotage.

Experiments have shown that when a downward force is placed on an outstretched arm, the same person can resist anything from 3-5 times as much pressure when they repeat the words “I am strong” out loud compared to when they repeat the words “I am weak”.

The words we hear have a direct effect on how we feel and what we are capable of. If our internal dialogue is negative then this has a detrimental effect on our well-being, capability and success.

If we replace this self-talk with positive statements about the world and about ourselves then you can start to change your reality for the better from the inside out.

How do I create an affirmation?

Think of something that you would like to be true about you or your life.

Write it as a positive statement in the present tense.

This means that instead of saying “I no longer want to feel ill”, say “I feel fit and healthy” or “I make choices every day that are making me healthier and healthier” or “I enjoy regular healthy exercise and eating fresh, nutritious foods”. Instead of saying “I want to get out of debt” say “I have all the money I need” or “I enjoy watching my savings increase” or “I notice the wealth of opportunities around me and take action to increase my income”.

Repeat this process for as many areas as you would like so that you have a number of positive statements. Common areas that people use affirmations are Health, Finances, Career, Relationships, Family, Study, Emotional Wellbeing and Spirituality.

Every affirmation you create can be entered into Me, But Better and will start to shape your thinking and actions to support your success.

How do I use affirmations?

When you state declare or proclaim something to the world then you assert it as a truth. The word origin is from the Latin affirmare which means to present something as firm or fixed, to assert as true.

There are three factors that influence the power of your affirmation.

  1. The words you choose
  2. Whether you say them out loud
  3. The emotional state you are in as you say them

For maximum power make sure that your affirmation is a positive statement in the present tense that you say out loud with enthusiasm or an appropriate energy in your voice and body. The more that your whole being resonates with the sentiment of your affirmation, the more powerful it will be.
