Everyday you say many words and have many thoughts. Many feelings arises in you when you speak these words or think of these thoughts. Some of these spoken words and thoughts eventually become part of you as you keep on repeating them day after day. All your words and thoughts become an affirmation. An affirmation is actually anything you say or think.
Why Affirmation Does Not Work For You?
There are a few reasons why affirmation does not work for you :
- Affirm that it does not work : Some people says that "affirmations don’t ever work for me". This sentence is also an affirmation. Therefore affirmation works by not working for you.
- Proportion of positive and negative affirmations daily : Many people say 5 minutes of positive affirmations every morning and then think negatively or complaint for the next 23 hours and 55 minutes. Do you think these people will get any result from the the 5 minutes of positive affirmation? Don’t forget that a complaint is also a affirmation.
- You don’t want the change : Perhaps you don’t want what you are affirming. You may affirm to be rich but on the other hand you hate rich people. You think that rich people are evil and snobbish people. How can you become a person you hate by getting rich. To clear your negative feelings about what you want, you need to use EFT. Think of the advantages and disadvantages, likes and dislikes of what you want and use EFT to tap away the negative feelings. Many times, the main reason you are not getting what you want is that you subconsciously dislike the result.
If affirmation does not work for you, it is just that you don’t know how to use them correctly.
How To Get Affirmation To Work For You?
It is not your fault that you think negatively. Nobody taught you how to speak and think positively. When you grow up, everyone around you also thinks and speaks negatively.
If you drink poison more than 50% of the time, will you be cured? What happens if you stop drinking poison and start detox your body? Slowly and steadily you will get cured.
The same applies to affirmation. To get affirmations to work for you, you need to put in effort to achieve more than 50% of time, thinking and speaking positively. The more often you speak and think positively, the faster you get your mind fully detox.
Say your affirmation in the morning and before you go to bed. Put the affirmation in your wallet and on your desk. Say your affirmation as many times as you can through out the day.
What Are The Affirmations You Can Use?
- Everyday in every way, I am getting better, better and better.
- I am a lucky person and I am feeling lucky today.
- Money flows to me in every way and I deserved it.
- I treasure every good that life offers me and I am getting more and more of them everyday.
- I love life and life love me too.

Now that you have done step one to five. You know what you want. Your goal is so attractive to you. You have a plan of mini steps to take to reach the goal. So what is the final step?
The final step is to do it. Action is what that create the world. If God just think about creating the world, do you think the world exist?
You must take at least one mini step everyday towards your goal. The reason why you create mini steps of 15 minutes or less, is to let yourself feel comfortable about taking one step at a time. If you do one step per day, you will have done 30 steps in a month. You are 30 steps closer to your goal. You can do more steps on days when you are more motivated but you need to do at least one mini step per day.
You also need to review your plan weekly or monthly. This review will bring you more insight of where you are now and where you are heading. You need to make adjustment if you are moving in the wrong direction. This review is critical to whether you can achieve your goal or not.
Good luck to whatever you want to achieve. Let’s make this year different from your last year. Let’s make your goals a reality.

If there is no obstacle in life, then life will not be fun. Obstacles are there to make your life fun. If you think about obstacles are there to spice up your life, you will be happier and feel more control over your life. Anyway, the obstacles will be there whether you get angry at it or just laugh at it.
The Greatest Obstacle
You, yourself are the greatest obstacle. If you are not motivated to achieve your goal, you will never make it. Make sure the goal is what you want and not what others want for you. Don’t include goals that your boy friend, girl friend, family or parents want you to do. You must do a goal you want for yourself.
Tap your way to your goal
Using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to remove unwanted emotions about achieving the goal or doing that mini step. You can download a free ebook on how to do the EFT at the following address.
http://www.emofree.com/downloadeftmanual.asp (basic EFT)
http://www.masteringeft.com/RequestForBonusEbook.html (more advance EFT)
EFT also help you to remove mental obstacles such as you don’t deserved the goal or you have a fear of change. The reason why people always do the same things is because there are some advantages in doing it. One possible advantage for being poor may be you hate rich people or you have a fear of success/failure. One possible advantage of being fat is you don’t like party or you fear of change (changing your wardrobe, changing your life style).
Only when you feel good about your goal, you are unstoppable.
Ask those who have achieved it
When you find yourself stuck, it is good to ask someone who has achieve the same goal. Don" ask someone who label themselves an expert but they never achieve the goal you want to achieve. Don’t ask an weight lost expert who is fat himself. Don’t ask which car to buy from a person who don’ have driving licence. Search the forum in the internet for advice.
When no one can help you, God can. Napoleon Hill, the famous author of "Think and Grow Rich" mentioned that many successful people have very strong religious background. When these rich and successful people meet with obstacles, they turn to God for strength and solution. Have faith in God. Don’t expect immediate result. God has so many people to take care of so your answer may come a bit later.

So you have a plan. Now how to get the energy to achieve your goal. A plan without motivation energy is like a car without petrol, it will not get you any where. There are a few ways to energize yourself.
Think of the result
Think about how you feel when you have the final result. Think about how you feel and do when you have the money or have the dream car or slim down. Don’t think of the actions to do to reach the goal because thinking of the work you need to do is boring. Everyday day dream about your goal.
Wheel of fortune
Paste the photo of your goal in front of you. Paste the photo at your desk where you will see it everyday. If you want a car, paste the photo of your dream car in front of you. If you want to loose weight, paste the photo of the dress in front of you. These photo will remind you of your goals and give you the energy to take action.
Emotion Freedom Techniques
People are creatures of emotion. When we don’t feel like doing something, even God cannot make us do it.
Emotion Freedom technique is a well known skill used by many people to remove unwanted obstacles, feeling and pain. You can cure your headaches, phobias with it. The good part is it is free for you to use. You can download the ebooks from the following link.
Try it to believe it. I guarantee EFT works.
Affirmation may not be new to many people. You unknowingly say affirmations in the morning, before you go to bed and throughout the day. When you wake up and brush your teeth, you affirm "Today is a lousy day because I feel so bad". When you get a speeding ticket, you affirm "I knew this will happen to me". When you get caught in the traffic jam and you are late for your work, you affirm "Everyday is like that". When you go to bed at night, you affirm "Tomorrow will be another lousy working day". No wonder bad things happen.
Why not affirm positive things. One popular affirmation is "Everyday in every way, I am getting better, better and better".
If you have use positive affirmation before and it does not work for you. The reasons to why affirmation do not work for you are :
- You are too negative. You cannot expect to do a few days of positive affirmations and erase off all your negative thoughts you have accumulated for years. You need to do it more often and for a longer period of time to have any positive effect.
- You need to affirm with feelings. When you affirm bad things, you affirm them with feelings and that’s why the negative affirmation works. In the same way, you affirm the positive statement with positive feeling and it will work too.
- Use affirmation with EFT. Another more advance free ebook about using EFT with choices is available at the link below. The affirmation works better with EFT.

When your boss tells you to finish the 200 pages report by today, you will say it is impossible. Even if you agree to do it, you will not be willingly to do it because you know that it is not possible to do so.
The same is applied to goal setting. If you tell you mind, you want something unreachable, your mind will not be willing to reach it for you. You will not find any reason to do it.
So how to make your goal seems reachable even it is a very big goal?
Slice up the goal
How do you eat your meal? You eat one mouthful at a time. How do you read a book? A page at a time.
Slice up your goals into mini goals. Then slice up the mini goals into mini steps of 15 minutes or less. Now look at each mini step. Do you think you can do one mini step now? Of course you can. You feel you can. You think you can. Why? Each step only take 15 minutes and therefore you are confident of completing it.
Find a person who has achieve the same goal
Look around you or search the internet for anyone who has achieve what you want. You will feel a goal more achievable if someone else has achieved the same goal. This is especially true if the person is close to you.
If your father is a army general, you will likely to feel that you can also be a general. If your friend has successfully loose weight, you will feel you can also achieve your ideal weight. If you read about someone in the internet like Louise Hay who can cure herself of illness and help others to do so, you feel you are ready to be cured.
Find more info about achieving your goal
If you can get more how-to information about your goal, you will feel that you can achieve it because you already know the how-to. Search the internet or look for books on how to achieve your goal. Knowing how-to is winning half the battle.
Have a plan
Know what you want. Know where you are now. Now plan the steps from where you are to where you want to be. That is called a plan. The best plan is a written plan. As you are not going to achieve the goal within one day, it is best to write down a plan so that you can know the next step.
Another important question is how do you know that you have reach your goal. Having a goal to loose weight is too general. How do you know if you have achieve the goal to loose weight? Perhaps fitting yourself into the dress you want to wear, lets you know that you have achieve the goal. You must know what will tell you that you have reached the goal.

So you want to loose weight. So you want to make more money. Do these goals make you jump? Do these goals give you strength to do anything? I don’t think so. Loosing weight sound very torturing. Making more money sounds boring.
Making your goals exciting will give you plenty of energy and motivation to take steps to achieve it. So how to make your goals exciting?
Keep asking why you want to achieve your goal until you reach an exciting answer.
Ask why you want to make more money. To have a dream car? To have a dream house? Does having a dream car or dream house sound more exciting than making more money? Then ask more why. Why have a dream car or a dream house? To show off your car or house to your enemy at work? To live in better comfort?
Keep asking why until you reach an exciting answer. Use that answer as a goal statement instead.
Make a mountain out of a molehill
Everyone value something in life. Some people are religious. Some people care a lot for their family. Many of us wanted to be a hero in life. Why not connect what you want with what you value in life?
For example you want to make more money. Think about the churches, temples and mosque you can build if you are rich. Think about how much better your loved ones will live if you are rich. Think about how you can help the poor and needy when you are rich.
If you are trying to loose weight, think about how much more fun you will have when you are at your ideal weight. Think about how many other plump people you can help when you reach your goal. Think about all the money you can save or earn if you are at your ideal weight.
Connect your goals to your values.

If you get into a car and you are not sure where you wan to go, the result is that you will get no where. Any place can be your destination.
In the same way, you need to define what you want for this year. You need to set a goal for yourself. Don’t include goals that others want you to achieve.
So what do you really really want? There are two ways to set your goals if you don’t know how.
Imagine a genie (or even a god or a rich man) wants you to have one wish because you save his life. What will you wish for? Be practical. Wish for something for yourself even though you can wish for world peace.
100th Birthday Method
Imagine today is your 100th year old birthday. There are reporters from big newspapers and magazines from all over the world, taking photos of you. One reporter asks you "what is the greatest achievement in your life?" What will you say? By answering this question, you will know what is valuable in your life.
If you ask elderly people or dying people about their regrets in life, many of them will tell you about regrets of things they never do. Not things they have done but things they never get around to do it.
Life is too short to have regrets. Do something today.

Everyone wants something for the new year. A number of us create new year resolution every year. But how many of last year’s goals did you achieve?
This year will be different for you. You will be able to get what you want within this year. How?
The answer is simple. Try another method of achieving goal. Just like a bee smacking at the windows, trying to get out. The windows is closed and no matter how the bee hit the window, it is not getting out. The bee will have better luck trying another window.
Why not try this new method? This whole week, Living Lucky is going to show you the steps to achieve your new year’s goal. You just have to do one thing, take action. You have to practice what is taught here. If you read about how to bake a cake or drive a car, it does not mean you can make a nice cake or drive a car on the road. Knowing and practicing are two different thing. Practicing wakes up your brain and engrave the knowledge into your brain. So please do the steps.
Some steps may seems unusual and strange to you. Don’t reject the method. Try them. You can find these methods very popular if you search in the internet.
For the next six days, you will learn

- How to make your desire very attractive?

- How to fill yourself with the energy to get what you want?
- How to remove obstacles in your path to get what you want?
