“Any thought that is passed on to the subconscious often enough and convincingly
enough is finally accepted.”
“Give me a break, give me a break. Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.”
“Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.”
“I’m a big kid now.”
How can we not. Think of how catchy commercial jingles get ingrained in our minds. We can use this same idea to help us install new beliefs with affirmations.
Here’s the first video that goes along with this post?
Why is this so important? Just think of a negative belief about yourself you have deep inside. One that rears its ugly head more often than not. Like, “I’m not worthy enough.”
The thing is – if a person has this belief, they’ve been saying this very statement to themselves inside for years and years and years. Without even realizing it.
So when a person decides they want to change it, saying a new belief a few times is just not going to cut it. It’s not going to get ingrained enough to override the negative one.
But, in this article, you’ll get three easy ideas to help you really ingrain new beliefs by using affirmations.
The first idea to make affirmations really stick in your subconscious mind:
Create a catchy jingle for it. Then just keep repeating it in the background of your days. This will really help it stick. And the good part is no one ever has to know. This is your life you’re making better. No need to explain this stuff to anyone. Unless you have someone encouraging and supportive you want to share with. Then that’s great.
The second idea to make affirmations really stick in your subconscious mind:
Years ago, author and New Thought minister Dr. Joseph Murphy explained that just saying one word over and over again is powerful. So if you want more confidence, for example, just start saying the word “confidence” to yourself.
Author Genevieve Behrend from the 1920s explained the same concept years before him when she stated, “You wish to establish joy in your consciousness. Just repeat the word ‘joy’
secretly, persistently, and emphatically. The joy germ begins to expand and project itself until your whole being is filled with joy.”
The third idea to make affirmations really stick in your subconscious mind:
The last technique is to pull great words and phrases from audiobooks, interviews, and inspirational speeches you’re listening to.
For instance, if you’re listening to Oprah talk about her personal journey or interview someone you admire, you’ll no doubt hear some words and phrases that will resonate with you and your own journey.
Grab that statement, feel how it resonates with you, how it touches a part of you, and how you can install it into your subconscious mind.
Write it down and then just start repeating it.
A good idea is to always keep a pen and paper handy, so you can write down affirmations and save them for later. It’s also a good idea to log your affirmations into your journal or keep a separate journal for them.

If some of these affirmations use words that don’t resonate with you, no problem. Create them in your own style. If words like beautiful and wonderful aren’t for you, for instance, create affirmations like:
- I am a freakin’ bad ass.
- I know now what I’m made of.
- I am so over the stuff from my childhood and I’m moving the bleep on.
- I am so damn worth it.
- And I’m so done with that old stuff.
- I’m not being held back anymore.
- I’m done being afraid.
- I’m done feeling like I’m not good enough.
- I know the truth now.

- It’s time I put my big girl panties on and made stuff happen.
- I’m ready to kick some ass. (figuratively, not literally.)
- Fear, go take a flying f .
- This sh*t’s going down.
I’ve said all of these and plenty more. Whatever feels good. Whatever is going to change those old, stale, worn out beliefs that are causing you to say in fear and insecurity. Whatever is going to make you realize that the time is now to take back your God given power.
