What is success? Success is the achievement of a desired goal. Unfortunately, that definition is quite lacking. If you decide that you want to eat dinner at 5 o’clock, and you do, does that make you a success? Most people would say that no, that doesn’t make you a success. But, they can’t say whether you are success or not. Only you can make that determination. The true definition of success is the personal achievement of goals in order to make you feel successful. And the best way to achieve that success comes from affirmations for success. How do affirmations for success work then, with the true definition of success?

Affirmations of success are sayings that you say to yourself in order to affirm what you consider successful. To make that clearer, let’s look at an example. Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, has more money than most people can even dream about. He wasn’t born rich, and money didn’t just fall off of a money tree in the back yard. He decided to that him, having a lot of money would make him a success. So he would have more than likely used affirmations for success without even knowing he was doing it. He would more than likely have said to himself something along the lines of “I will earn 1 million dollars in 5 years.” He probably said that same thing to himself every morning when he woke up. And what happened? His dreams and goals came true. He visualized what he wanted and told himself he would do it.

Does that sound too simple? Not at all! By using affirmations for success, you can become as successful as you believe you can be. Obviously, just thinking that something will happen won’t make it happen. Millions of people in the world will tell you that it takes hard work to achieve those goals also. Those millions are wrong though. It truly is as simple as affirming to yourself that you will be as successful as you want to be. The trick is that if you believe it will come true, you will find the road to success easier. Your mind will already be in the habit of thinking that you will be successful, so when you decide that doing something will lead to that goal, you will find that it will work that way. Because by using your affirmations for success, you are training your mind to view all things as possible, rather than dwelling on the potential problems. In essence, you will have already overcome any problems before you even know any are supposed to be there.

Success isn’t measured in the eyes of others. Success is completely dependant upon your own personal views of success. Because of this, affirming to yourself that you can achieve the goals you want will ensure that those goals are easily met. The mind is the most powerful organ in the human body. Affirmations for success are the most potent tool you have for training your mind. That training is the basis of changing the WAY you think. Using affirmations for success, you will ensure that you will be as successful as you think you can be.
