My name is Tony Palermo, and I am a life coach based in California. In this article I am going to write about the law of attraction and affirmations. What is the law of attraction? Whatever we think about we are going to get. That’s basically the law of attraction. Whatever we think about — good or bad — we will get. For example, if someone keeps saying “I don’t feel well” over and over again, that person is going to get sick. If a person says “I feel great; I feel wonder” over and over again, that person is going to feel great.

What is an affirmation? An affirmation is a statement of what we want. For example, if I say, “My body is perfect,” this would be an affirmation. Affirmations go with the law of attraction very well. The statement or affirmation is what people say to get what they want. If a person is saying affirmations and they don’t get what they want, here are a few tips that could help:

  1. You’re not saying the affirmation long enough. What I mean by that is if I say “I have a new job that pays me well” but only say it once or twice, this is normally not long enough. I want everyone to say “I have a new job that pays me well” over and over again until you just can’t say it anymore.
  2. Give an affirmation more energy by putting YES in front of it. So I would say, “YES, I have a new job that pays me well.” The YES gives it more energy. Just say, “YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES.” We all will be amazed at the results.
  3. Don’t give up. People basically don’t do an affirmation long enough because they don’t see results immediately so they give up. Keep reciting your affirmations.

One last thing before I let you go. If your dream is to be an author, for example, but you don’t have any experience in writing or in editing papers, becoming an author is going to be very hard. An affirmation has to be something real to you so if I was a hairdresser I might one day want to own the hair salon I work at. This would be believable to me. Now I’m not saying the person who wants to be an author can’t do it. It’s just he or she would have to start by maybe taking English classes at a community college or find a tutor who can help improve his/her writing skills. Basically nothing is off limits. We just can’t jump from point A to point Z as they say; we have to go from point A to point B.

One thing is for sure: Never give up on your dreams. Go for it. Do what you love. If you love what you do, work won’t really be work, will it?
