So it's fascinating to me to read Scott Adams' post about how he's used affirmations to achieve important goals. He's of course funny in this post, but is also self-deprecating and honest about how he can't explain exactly why they've worked.
Writing down or repeating affirmations out loud can be quite a woo-woo process. I found it surprising and charming to learn that someone like Scott (whom of course I've never met but who I imagine to be solidly connected to earth as he looks for and hilariously describes the absurd aspects of our everyday lives at the office) not only uses affirmations but is willing to admit it and write about it.
I've dabbled in the practice myself but so far it hasn't caught hold. I just feel really silly writing phrases over and over again that aren't true (yet!)
However, I'm comfortable with guided visualizations and all kinds of different journaling techniques, and can be relatively woo-woo when called upon.
What about you? Have you ever written down what you want repeatedly over time? If so, what results did you get?
