HOW TO CORRECTLY USE AFFIRMATIONS
Now that you have read these affirmations, let’s see how you can correctly apply them.
1. Let go of negative affirmations
How many times a day do you not believe in your abilities, skills, or even yourself?
How many times a day do you catch yourself saying negative insults about yourself?
I’m sure you’ve caught yourself saying things like:
🚫 I will never be smart enough.
🚫 I’m not responsible enough.
🚫 I’ll always suffer from ADHD.
These negative affirmations are destructive to your self-esteem, your success, and your ability to love and appreciate yourself.
As soon as you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, pause and stop yourself.
Letting go of negative affirmations might be the most important step in learning to use affirmations correctly.
2. Replace with nothing
That’s right. Get used to saying nothing at all.
Pay attention to how you feel when you don’t react to any of your negative thoughts.
Get comfortable with not giving them power.
This might be more difficult than you imagined, and that’s okay.
You’ve been conditioned to absorb negativity.
3. Incorporate positive affirmations
Now’s the time to start saying positive affirmations.
You can say them to yourself internally or out loud.
The best positive affirmations are always in the present tense, include positive words, and are spoken as a fact and the truth.
The most powerful affirmations are the ones that turn your negative thoughts into positive ones.
Using the examples above, start saying:
🏆 I am incredibly intelligent
🏆 I am completely responsible
🏆 I am in control of my ADHD
(If this is still too difficult for you, try saying something like, “I am open to believing these affirmations”.)
4. Repeat the process
Using affirmations correctly takes practice and dedication.
Let me say that again.
It takes practice, practice, and more practice.
You won’t be able to say these affirmations for adult ADHD once and feel much different.
The first couple of times you practice them, you might even feel defeated, because they didn’t really work at all.
(Remember, try saying “I’m open to believing these affirmations” if they seem too out of reach.)
But keep at it.
Keep letting go of negative affirmations, getting comfortable with the silence, and then incorporating positive affirmations.
Positive Affirmations for ADHD
If you’re not sure about affirmations, really take the time to practice them with an open mind.
Take the time to really believe in them and their power.
It’s best if you say these loving and powerful ADHD affirmations both morning and night for 21 days straight.
That’s when you’ll really start to see a difference in your self-esteem and how you feel about yourself!
