I have just recently started using affirmations in my daily life and business, and I find that they are really helpful! I just got into the world of daily affirmations, the law of attraction, and positive mindset thinking and I have been loving it!
So, today I want to talk about what are daily affirmations, what they are for, and how they have positively affected my daily life as a business owner to help me reach my goals! So if you’re a blogger or a business owner and you’ve been struggling lately, this will honestly change your life!
WHAT ARE DAILY AFFIRMATIONS?
Affirmations are basically positive or encouraging lines that you say to yourself. This is all about getting into a good headspace and having the mindset to conquer your day and your goals. I don’t think many of us realize how important our mental health is when it comes to running a business.
We as business owners, need to stay in a positive frame of mind in order to keep our business running. Otherwise, we quit.
When the sales aren’t coming in. When we miss our target income for the month. Our blog views are down, or we don’t get the sponsored post we were hoping for. When everything is going wrong, what happens?
Our motivation dwindles. We don’t work as hard. We get discouraged.
Now, I’m not saying that this isn’t normal to happen. And I’m not saying that these affirmations are going to magically change you into a successful businesswoman. Sadly, that’s not the case.
However, what I am saying is in times that are tough, we have to fight our self-doubt and keep going after our dreams. and the only way to do that is to stay determined, positive, and keep our eyes on the prize.
And what’s the best way to do that? For me, one of the ways is with positive affirmations!

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SAY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS DAILY
When you start to repeat these positive affirmations to yourself each day, something in you will change. you’ll become more confident. You will be more motivated to reach your goals. You’ll start to realize that you can do this.
Let me tell you about an experience I had just a few months ago. Let me know if you can relate.
I was getting pretty discouraged with my blog. I wasn’t growing as fast as I wanted to and, worst of all, I wasn’t making a dime. I would set income goals, after income goals. Each month I’d say I was going to make an affiliate sale.
And each month, I failed.
So, eventually I just stopped writing that goal down.
Until one month, I got super frustrated as I often did with my blog and I told myself “What’s the point of making this income goal when I know I’m not going to reach it?”
But I decided that one last time, just one, I’d write down this goal. But this time I would actually believe in myself that I could do it. And I started to write down affirmations every day in my planner.
“I will make one affiliate sale this month”
“I will reach my income goal”
“I cam make money from my blog”
You’ll never guess what happened.
I actually made money that month. A whopping $3.98.
I’m sure you’re probably laughing. $3.98? That’s it?
But, to be honest, it was the best sale I have made to date. Because it was proof that I could do it. It was small, but it was still an income. It gave me the courage to keep going.
And now, I write down affirmations and my goals every single day.
And guess what happened the next month? I made $38.10
And the next month? $47.58
And this month? I have already made $61 and the month is not quite over yet for me. Depending on when you read this of course.
The point is, from my first dollar I increased my income pretty significantly, over just a few months. And I believe at least part of that has to do with these affirmations! They’ve kept me going and given me the hope and belief I needed to work harder to make those sales.
As I said, these positive affirmations will not do all of the work for you, you still have to go out and kick ass at what you do. But the Law of Attraction says what you put into the universe, you get out. It’s kinda like karma.
So, if you’re struggling in your business, ask yourself. What are you putting out into the universe? Is it bad vibes? Maybe it’s time to change that up a bit.
HOW YOU CAN ADD DAILY AFFIRMATIONS AND THE LAW OF ATTRACTION INTO YOUR ROUTINE
So, maybe you’d like to add these daily affirmations into your routine and practice with the Law of Attraction a bit but don’t know where to start. If you’re stuck, here are a few tips!
1. GRAB A JOURNAL OR PLANNER TO WRITE IN
I like to write down my goals and affirmations in my planner because then I will see them each and every time I check my planner (which is often!) If you’re looking for a planner for the new year, this one right here is my favorite!
Or, if you’d like you could also start a bullet journal and write your daily affirmations in that as well! I am slowly getting into bullet journalling myself, and it’s really fun! This bullet journal here is my favorite.
Either way you choose to write your positive affirmations, make sure it will be in a place that you will look at often!
2. WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS IN “I WILL” OR “I CAN” STATEMENTS
This is something I started to do each day with my affirmations. Write down your goals as if they have already happened, or will happen.
“I will make 5 sales this month”
“I can hit 5,000 pageviews”
“I am a full-time blogger”
Whatever it is that you want to do, write it down in some way like that “I will” “I can” “I am” I have”. This turns your goals into real, tangible things and makes them not only seem more achievable but turns them into your own affirmations!
I hope these affirmations will help you reach all of your income and business goals. If you’d like to read more about the Law of Attraction, check out this post here.
