Saying your daily affirmations is more than just your personal self help statements to make you feel better but they are a tool and a reminder to keep you on track and to help you get to where you want to go. Daily affirmations to me is a verbal vision board (which are important to). It's more than just believing and praying you want something to happen but it's putting in work and pouring your wants, needs into the universe. Kind of like planting a seed in a garden. Your affirmation is your seed, the world is your garden, your hard work and labor are the water and fertilizer to make your seed (affirmation grow).
I rememer when I really knew when I wanted to be a makeup artist back in 2010. I didn't know how I was going to do it. I had just graduated from college, I enrolled in graduate school for Education Leadership, I had tapped out of all finiancial aide, I was living in an apartment and had to work 2 jobs just to maintian. I was nowhere near becoming a makeup artist. However, I prayed everyday "Lord you see my heart desire. I want to become a mua. I don't know how I am going to do it but hear my cry Lord and when the time is right open that door for me". Now mind you, I didn't put a time limit on it, I just asked God when it was the right time. During my wait. I said my daily affirmations that I would become a mua. I created countless of vision boards, I studied other successful mua's, I looked up different training and just pretty much prepared myself to become a mua so when that opportunity came I'll be ready.
4 years later when I started dating my husband in 2014 I told him I wanted to become a mua and he said ok we will make that happen, again he helpe me worked towards it, we created vision boards for my dream, we both said daily affirmations that I will become a mua and I will be great and in 2016 I started my path as a makeup artist. I went to training, slowly started creating a name and brand for myself and here it is 2018 and so many doors have open for me as a mua. Now don't get me wrong the journey was never easy and it's still not. There are so many things I still want to accomplish like getting my esthetician license and again I don't know how I am going to get them but I tell myself everyday that I will get my liscense somehow and I truly believe that and I will.
So if there is something you want to do, achieve or experience say your daily affirmations. Believe it and work towards achieving it. If you don't have 6 years to wait. Be more specific in your prayers and goals but be realistic. If you want something in less than a year or two speak it into the universe and make it happen. We are living in a time you can literally be and do anything you want. You just have to be focus, do your research and put in the time and effort.
I will revisit this blog again and do a two part segment when I receive my license to confirm that your daily affirmations is essential to becoming what you want to become.
