NLP Techniques | Affirmations

In this short video, Michael Beale introduces the concept of affirmations – which are a very powerful tool when they are set up correctly.


What Are Affirmations?

Affirmations are a mixture of a mission statement, a belief statement, and a commitment statement. When set up correctly, they are very motivational, and act to refocus when you drift off course.  There are 4 simple rules to creating really useful affirmations:

  1. Set a direction rather than a goal.
  2. Make it a learning direction rather than a performance direction.
  3. Develop and fine tune it to make it really motivational and exciting.
  4. Don’t create a fake belief, amplify something you believe already.

As an example, this is a version of Michael’s Affirmation Statement. You can use it as a starting point, but it is much better to craft one that is personal to you.

Michael will: learn to glisten from the inside out, be surprised and delighted by the number and quality of Stakeholder Coaching assignments he receives, step up to the challenge of leading himself, and clients, in bringing about positive change and becoming more successful and fufilled.  He will learn to embrace the full catastrophe of life.

These are what work for him. They are unlikely to work for you.

In the next section we explore how to: Amplify good feelings.
