10 Super Cs: Affirming Your Power to Grow

I have the power to change myself.
Today our reflection is all about the big “C.” Nope, not cookies, definitely not cancer:  affirmations that involve the letter C.

The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, meaning “to make steady, strengthen.” As psychologist Dr. Carmen Harra explains, “[i]n the sequence of thought-speech-action, affirmations play an integral role by breaking patterns of negative thoughts, negative speech, and in turn, negative actions.”

Go on, be skeptical. I expect nothing less of you, dear readers. But if you want to break some patterns you’re not happy with, patterns that aren’t serving you, read on.

There’s no doubt that the art of speaking is a key thing that distinguishes the human species from other animals. When our thoughts become spoken words they hold the power to reinforce how we think about ourselves.

Think about a time when someone’s words steadied and strengthened you. What did s/he say? How will it feel to take charge of steadying and strengthening yourself?

Try these big “C” affirmations or make up some of your own. What have you got to lose except, perhaps, some dead-weight thinking that may be holding you back! And, as thoughts become words, words tend galvanize action, so get ready…
