They're an easy, accessible, effective and free tool in your manifestation toolkit, and are something you can use as often as you like. So if you want to instantly elevate your business, master your mindset and kickstart your successful-biz-owner manifestation into gear, read on!
How Do Affirmations Work?
Many people don't realise just how powerful our language - and the way we speak to ourselves - is. There is an incredible amount of power in our words, and they directly and indirectly shape our reality.
Reality affects our thoughts, but thoughts also affect our reality. And to follow along from that, our thoughts affect our words, but our words also affect our thoughts. So when we repeat affirmations to ourselves, we are literally telling ourselves what our reality is.
But What If I Don't Believe My Affirmation Yet?
That's why we're here! Obviously we don't always start off with the self belief and confidence that we want to have, and it can feel a bit disingenuous or pointless to repeat an affirmation that we don't believe. However. This doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile - just the opposite in fact. This is when we need our affirmations the most! With consistency comes belief, which will then fuel our consistency. To do this, we need to pair our affirmations with actions.
For example, if you're repeating to yourself "I am successful," but you currently feel anything but successful, there are two things you can do:
Visualise yourself as you want to be
Spend time meditating and visualising yourself as the successful, confident person that you want to be. How does that look for you? What does it feel like? Emotions are a strong trigger, so really focus in on how the successful version of you feels.
Actively seek out confirmation + shift your focus
Look for the smaller indicators that you are, in fact, successful. You may not be a multi-millionaire (yet), but what areas are you successful in? Perhaps you're making more sales this week than you were last week - success! Perhaps you've had referrals from past clients who loved your service - success! Focus on what you do already have, rather than what you don't. If you find this hard, try talking it out with a friend or loved one - often these things are more apparent to those on the outside.
Powerful Affirmations For Business Owners
Here are my favourite affirmations to speak into existence; both when I'm feeling successful, but perhaps more importantly, when I'm not!
- I am capable
- The good I give to the world comes back to me tenfold
- I trust my intuition
- My energy and boundaries are precious and important
- I can be adaptable
- I attract new opportunities easily and often
- Money flows easily and abundantly to me
- My energy attracts the right people to work with
- I am resilient
- My self worth is not connected with how my business is performing
- The Universe is supporting me to be successful
- I believe in myself
- I am a money magnet
- I deserve success and wealth
- People deserve the value that I can share with them
Depending on your business and your goals, you'll likely be able to come up with your own personal affirmations - you can even get really specific around a situation or outcome and repeat that. For example, "My business owner affirmations blog post will go viral and be hugely successful, resulting in loads of hits on my website"... or something ;)
Consistency is key. Place triggers or reminders around your home to prompt you to say your affirmations often. Make it a habit!
The best thing about affirmations are that they are completely adaptable, completely achievable, and completely free. If you haven't tried them yet, or even if you aren't 100% convinced on whether they work or not (spoiler alert: they do!), give them a try! You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
You got this, my friends!
