How can you turn your strengths into affirmations?
First, you want to discover your strengths. Write down the following two questions and let your mind randomly answer, then write down your first ten responses. This exercise will help you informally discover what you like versus what you don’t like.
I feel strong when…
I feel weak when…
Second, you want to label your strengths with a word. For example, “My top five strengths are…”
- Focus: My ability to stay on track with priorities.
- Individualization: My ability to relate and personalize.
- Achiever: My divine restlessness to be productive.
- Command: My ability to take charge.
- Competition: My will to win and be my best.
Maybe you’re saying to yourself, “I know what I’m good at but I don’t know what to call it.” If you want to leverage your strength, it’s important to get a handle on it with a word or label.
Third, you want to write and repeat your strength affirmations. Affirmations need to be written personally, with positivity, in the present tense, and with passion. Say them out loud three times in the morning when you first get up, throughout the day when you need encouragement, and at the end of the day before you go to bed.
To really build momentum, do this for thirty days straight without missing a day. You can even read and record them on your iPhone and listen to them when your driving.
Some examples of strength affirmations are…
- I am clear and focused for maximum productivity.
- I am winning my ideal clients daily with individualization.
- I am achieving my goal of $25,000 or more a month.
- I am breaking bottle necks and creating momentum with my command strength.
- I am winning in love, work, and life with my competition strength.
