15 Affirmations that will Change Your Life

Did you know that your words have the power to shape your day? 

In fact, they have the power to create your destiny. The things that we speak have the ability to either build up or tear down; create or destroy. Ultimately, your words create your world.

Proverbs 18:21 puts it this way:

"The tongue has the power of life and death..."

Knowing this, not only should you choose our words wisely, but you should use your words to create the atmosphere that you want.

What do I mean? If your words can determine your destiny, then you should begin affirming those things that you desire for your day and your life.

If your desire is to become debt free, then you should begin speaking, "I am debt free!" I did this almost every day while I was still in debt. Less than 2 years later, I became what I had declared. In essence, I fulfilled my own prophecy. 

Words are prophetic.

This means that they will come to life if we believe them and put actions toward them.

Imagine a childhood where you are told that you will never amount to anything in life. You continue to hear those damaging words and, ultimately, you begin to believe them. It gets ingrained in your heart and mind and you begin to fulfill those very words. You underachieve, misbehave, and you lack motivation. The words that were spoken to you became your destiny.

....but imagine the reverse. Imagine that you are a child who is repeatedly told that you can be anything that you want to be. You believe that those words are true and you become unstoppable. You are confident, focused, motivated, and imaginative. The words that were spoken to you became your truth and your destiny.

Two different destinies, both starting with words. That's because....

Words have power.

Either one of those scenarios could have been your childhood...or your adulthood. I doesn't matter. What does matter is that you have the ability to change the course of your day and, ultimately, your life by the very words that you speak over your life NOW

Taking authority over your life includes taking authority over your words. Here are 15 affirmations that I use everyday that will change your day and your life!
