AFFIRMATION CREATES POWER by Orison Swett Marden – Part 1 of 3
Part 1 of 3
Constant Affirmation Increases Courage; the Backbone of Confidence
“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.”
— Orison Swett Marden
The world makes way only for the determined man,
for the man who laughs at barriers which limit others,
at stumbling-blocks over which others fall.
The man who, as Emerson says,
“hitches his wagon to a star,”
is more likely to arrive at his goal than
the one who trails in the slimy path of the snail.
Confidence is the father of achievement.
It reinforces ability, doubles energy,
buttresses mental faculties, increases power.
Your thought will carry only the force of your conviction, the weight of your decision, the power of your confidence. If these are weak, your thought will be weak and your work futile.
Some people are incapable of strong, deep conviction; they are all surface, and liable to be changed by the opinions of everybody else. If they resolve upon a certain course, their resolution is so superficial that the first obstacle they strike deflects them. They are always at the mercy of the opposition, or of people who do not agree with them. Such people are shifty and unreliable; they lack strength of decision, positiveness of resolution.
What is a man good for if he hasn’t strength of resolution?
If his convictions are on the surface, he stands for nothing; nobody has confidence in him. He may be a good man, personally, but he does not inspire confidence. No one would think of calling upon him when anything of importance was at stake.
Unless conviction takes hold of one’s very being, there will be very little achievement in life. It is the man whose conviction is rooted deep and takes hold of his very life-blood, the man who is strong and persistent in his determination that can be depended upon. He is the man of influence, who carries weight; he is above the influence of any man who happens to have a different opinion.
If young people only knew the power of affirmation, of the habit of holding in the mind persistently and affirming that they are what they wish to be, that they can do what they have attempted, it would revolutionize their whole lives, it would exempt them from most of their ills and troubles, and carry them to heights of which they scarcely dream.
We are always talking about the power of the will. Its exercise is only another form of the affirmation. The will, the determination to do a thing, is the same as the affirmation of the ability to do it. No one ever accomplishes anything in this world until he affirms in one way or another that he can do what he undertakes.
It is almost impossible to keep a man back who:
- has a firm faith in his mission,
- who believes that he can do the thing before him,
- that he is equal to the obstacles which confront him,
- that he is more than a match for his environment.
The constant affirmation of ability to succeed, and of our determination to do so:
- carries us past difficulties,
- defies obstacles,
- laughs at misfortunes, and
- strengthens the power to achieve.
It reinforces and buttresses the natural faculties and power, and holds them to their tasks.
Constant affirmation increases courage, and courage is the backbone of confidence.
Furthermore, when a person gets in a tight place and says “I must,” “I will,” he not only reinforces his courage and strengthens his confidence, but also weakens the opposite qualities. Whatever strengthens a positive will weaken the corresponding negative.

Inspiration – How to Almost Guarantee Yourself a Great Day Every Day!
Dramatically Improve Your Chances to Have a Great Day
you can just about guarantee yourself
a great day every day.
Well, it’s not.
The way in which we begin a day largely determines how the day is going to go.
5 Techniques to Inspire You and Dramatically Improve Your Chances for a Great Day:
1. Remind Yourself You Are NOT Alone
Discover for yourself, what a wonderful way it is to wake up each morning with the reminder you are not alone. When you return to a semi-conscious state after a night of sleep, and while still in bed, repeat Psalm 139:18.
“When I awake, I am still with you.”
— Psalm 139:18
What does it mean? All night long while sleeping, we have been under the watchful care of our Heavenly Father. But now the day has come with all its potential problems, responsibilities, disappointments, and struggles. So it helps to be reminded that when we are awake God remains with us.
The eight comforting words in the above verse emphasize one of the greatest truths known to man – that we are not alone. Take time to memorize this verse. Then jumpstart your day and fill your waking moments with this reminder.
2. Pray for Others and Yourself
Next, pray for your loved ones, friends, and other people you have promised to pray for. Also pray for God’s guidance, wisdom, and protection over yourself as you go about your day.
3. Acknowledge Today as a Gift
Then, before leaving your bedside, repeat this inspiring Bible passage.
“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
— Psalm 118:24
God made this precious, opportunity-filled day; He gives it to you as a gift. And, as time passes, each day becomes more precious (or at least it should).
Keep in mind: You and I are very responsive to the moods of nature. Consider how you feel if you open your eyes and it is raining, or snowing, or the sky is overcast and the wind is blowing? This can be enough to start our day off on the wrong foot.
However, we can overcome any mood of nature, or any negative mood of human nature, by filling our minds with the realization that there is this precious thing called a day.
4. Visualize and Anticipate a Great Day
As you arise, mentally picture the good day you want and expect, visualize it clearly, and strongly affirm that mental picture. Practicing such awakening techniques can change your whole approach to life and help you see the good in every day.
For many, the moment their eyes open on a new day their thoughts begin to focus on all the awful things that might happen; and that is usually what they get. Why? Because what we project in our mind as a probability, is likely to result in fact.
To change apprehension, gloomy thoughts, and depressive attitudes to anticipation, repeat Genesis 1:1 and Psalm 118:24 three times in the morning, and then say them to yourself during the day.
Let your confession and affirmation be something such as: ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and earth and today is the day that the Lord has made. No other day just like it was ever made. This is it! I will rejoice and be glad in it. Thank you, Lord, for being with me this day. It’s going to be a great day!’
5. Let Go of the Past
Did it ever occur to you that yesterday ended last night? Every morning, you face a new beginning, so put the past behind you. Take the good memories you want to remember from the past along with you; as well as the lessons you’ve learned from your mistakes. But all the other things – leave them at the door of the new day.
One reason people have nervous breakdowns and are mentally sick is because they don’t shake themselves free of the past. Let it go!
Did you make mistakes last week? I did. What are we going to do about those mistakes? Start each day adventuring with God, and let the past be past. Do the best we can today with God’s help. Anticipate a great day, and it will be.
Do yourself a favor: Start putting these five techniques into practice. Habits and negative attitudes don’t change overnight. But if you can shift from apprehension to letting the thought of anticipation surge through your mind, your life will change and you’ll almost guarantee yourself a great day every day!
May your days be great and your life full of growing prosperity!

Abundant Living – Prosperity Destroys Fools! So Why Don’t You Wise Up and Prosper?
How to Use Your Confession to Prosper and Manifest the Abundance of God
Yes, I know, prosperity occasionally falls in the laps of
some individuals; for example, they may get an unexpected
inheritance or win the lottery.
However, we all know that IF these individuals are fools,
the prosperity will destroy them.
Prosperity Destroys Fools
“The prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoever hearkens unto Me shall dwell safely.”
— Proverbs 1:32-33
Some argue against being prosperous, and their reason is that ‘prosperity will destroy you.’ But the Bible says it will destroy a fool. So don’t be a fool.
How do we keep from being fools? Joshua 1:8 tells us that if we follow God’s method and confess the Word of God, then we will make our way prosperous, and deal wisely in all the affairs of life and have good success.
Wise Up and Prosper
Prosperity is a blessing, if it is acquired God’s way. A powerful way of keeping in line with God’s methods and activating His Word is through confessing it.
Now, sometimes people hear this and get crazy ideas about what this means. But all confessing really means is, speaking the Word of God out loud so you can hear yourself saying it. In order for us to succeed we must confess it out loud. This allows us to hear our own voices and that brings faith, because faith comes by hearing.
As we confess and affirm the Word of God, what we are doing is setting goals, and planting seeds in our heart. How can we expect to get something or somewhere if we don’t know what we want or where we are going? We establish God’s goals with His principles when we confess the Word of God. This in turn puts us on track to manifesting the abundance of God in our lives as the planted seeds soon become growing prosperity.
Positive Confessions for Abundant Living
Confessing what the Word of God says about you will change your life. Even the most negative people have gotten results after only putting this into practice for a few short months.
Keep in mind, when you first start speaking some of the things God says about you, you may feel like it’s the biggest lie that ever came out of your mouth. But the Word of God reflects the way He sees us, and confessing it helps us see and think about ourselves the same way God does.
Find a truth in God’s Word that pertains to your situation and make it into a confession. For example:
‘My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus and whatever I do prospers, for I am like a tree planted by the rivers of living water.’
(Philippians 4:19, Isaiah 54:17, Psalm 1:3)
It’s hard to imagine the impact this has on a person until they’ve confessed it every day for at least a month. Confessing the truth of the Word is calling things that are not as though they were and calling them into manifestation. Allow the will of God concerning you to manifest in your life.
So go ahead; put this to the test right away. God’s Word is living and powerful and when confessed will change you. The wisdom of God will empower you to handle all the affairs of life wisely so you can manifest and enjoy abundant living.
May you wise up to God’s ways and live a life of growing prosperity!

7 Scripture Based Affirmations – Why Not Confess and Share the Love? It’s a Beautiful Thing!
How to Draw on the Power of the Word to Increase Your Love Walk
powerful influencing force in your life.
They help put you in the scriptures and draw
on the power of the Word in a more focused way.
Making these confessions a regular part of your day will bless you BIG time.
What about love? Well we all know love is a powerful force itself and when abundant in our lives it brings great peace and helps manifest growing prosperity.
What about God? God is love. He is pure, holy, good, and righteous. Every promise in His Word is rooted in knowing and sharing His great love. Take time to meditate the Word of God and get to know His great love.
CONFESS and SHARE the LOVE!
1. I love You, God, because You first loved me. (1 John 4:19)
2. I love You, Lord, with all my heart, all my understanding, and all my strength. And I will love my neighbor more than I love myself. (Mark 12:33)
3. I remain in God’s love and I love my enemies and pray for those who persecute me. (John 15:10, Matthew 5:44)
4. The love of God matters most and I imitate my heavenly Father and walk in love toward others daily. I love others deeply because love covers a multitude of sins. (1 Corinthians 13:1-3, 1 Peter 4:8)
5. God has given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. Love helps me to rejoice in truth and to always protect, trust, hope, and persevere! (1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 2 Timothy 1:7)
6. I am rooted and established in love. I gain power to grasp the abundance of God’s love as I seek to discover how deep and how wide His love is. (Ephesians 3:17-19)
7. God is love and I make my life in Him. God’s great love is being perfected in me day-to-day. I have a life of love! (1 John 4:16-17)
Let these scripture-based affirmations be only the beginning; a place to start. As you continue to study, meditate, and confess the Word of God, you’ll empower yourself with an increased source of love affirmations to speak daily.
Love is in the Air
As the confessions of your heart and mind overflow with love, that same love will manifest in your life and positively affect the lives of all those around you. Love is the greatest gift that has been given to us and the greatest gift we can give. Let it flow abundantly in you and through you!
Start today: Build your faith in God’s love and His loving way of living by confessing scripture-based affirmations like these.
May you confess and share the love of God and live a life of growing prosperity!

Christian Meditation: My Life Is So Busy! How Much Time Should I Spend Meditating?
Find Out How to Fit Meditation into Your Already Busy Schedule!
Most believers understand it is important to meditate.
Yet at the same time, they can feel overwhelmed with the pressure of life’s demands and the thought of adding one more thing to their schedule.
When the topic of meditation comes up, the question often heard is: “But how can I? I just don’t have time!”
So true! There is no time in your schedule for meditation – until you make it!
Fitting God Into Your Schedule
We all know there will never come a time when the TV turns itself off, and the kids are quietly playing, and the phone doesn’t ring, and the “to do” list is complete, and our mind has nothing to do but meditate!
Distractions are a part of life and we have to purpose to fit meditation into our schedule. We have to choose to make it a priority.
Keep in mind: The easiest way to fit meditation into your schedule, and make it a daily habit, is to meditate at the same time and in the same place every day. But like I said, other things will always want to intrude.
The important thing is to be flexible, but purpose to make meditation on God’s Word a daily habit.
You might want to try a five minute devotional first thing in the morning to start your day off right and give yourself a positive focus. Then listen to a biblical meditation or Christian affirmation CD while driving, doing chores, or on a break. Another five to ten minutes, of some method of prayer or meditation, before going to sleep will also have a powerful impact.
Power To Change Your Life
Meditation can help bring peace and balance to our lives. One of the main reasons we are currently in a rat race and so busy spinning our wheels, is because our lives are out of line with God’s Word.
Needless to say, the only way to change this situation is to gain a greater understanding of how God would have us to live. We then adjust our lives to this new understanding and trust God to help us and guide us. As a result, things will begin to turn around.
“He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him.”
— Isaiah 26:3
I think you get the point. The key is that we have to choose to fit God into our schedule. We have to choose to make the time, and create the opening for meditation. The Bible tells us to meditate day and night. So we need to be sure and get our minimum daily requirement of the Word!
The good news is: Time spent in the presence of God empowers us to break free of the rat race and live successful. In fact, you’ll tap into a “hidden power” that has been available to you all along.
Are you ready to fit God into your schedule and create a daily habit of Christian meditation?
God bless you always,
Confess Success – God Declares You Prosperous and Successful! Do You?
Why Not Agree with God and Confess His Good Success on Your Life?
Prosperous success requires –
having a mindset that strives for success.
God wants you to be successful in all that you do.
God declares you prosperous and successful…
so begin to agree with God’s Word.
Be a person of the Word; speak the Word.
Think and Imagine Success
If we want to stay in a place of growing prosperity and constant success we must diligently seek God and His presence at all times. (Ecclesiastes 8:12) The thoughts and images that we allow God’s Word to create inside of us are powerful forces that cause us to succeed in every part of life – spiritually, physically, and financially.
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” — Joshua 1:8
Meditating and thinking on God’s positive, life-filled words have the power to change your life.
Having prosperous success means regularly speaking and confessing God’s Word. His word will manifest results, but we have to speak it. We can’t expect a life of growing prosperity while we constantly speak the opposite of God’s Word and confess things such as; ‘Nothing I ever do works out.’
“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” — Job 22:28
Keep in mind: As you regularly speak God’s words of truth, your negative thoughts of doubt will gradually fade.
Confess and Declare Success
Take time daily to confess and declare over your life the same things that God declares over you. The following is a sample confession to get you started:
‘I declare the good success of God on my life. I confess that I have a spirit of faithfulness, wisdom, diligence and giving. I give bountifully and I reap bountifully. I am blessed coming in and blessed going out. God has given me power to be successful. The light and favor of God are shining on me and I am victory minded in everything I do. I am a winner, an overcomer, and I triumph and live successful to the glory of God. Everything I put my hand to prospers. Success is overtaking me in Jesus’ name.’
Believe me. Once you start to keep God first place in your life, you can expect His blessings. God declares you successful, so begin to agree with the Word of God, observe to do it and make your way prosperous.
May you declare the success of God on your life and live in growing prosperity!

Affirmation Power – How to Overcome Fear and Strengthen Your Courage with Affirmations
Why Not Put the Power of Affirmations to Work for Your Benefit?
If you are lacking in any quality…
you can strengthen it with regular affirmations.
They will make your brain clearer…
and your thoughts more effective.
“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.”
— Orison Swett Marden
Fearful Thoughts Versus Courageous Thinking
Would you like to overcome fear in your life? If you are a coward anywhere in your nature, which most people are, you can put the power of affirmations to work for your benefit.
Strengthen your courage by regularly affirming that you are absolutely fearless, that you are courageous, and that nothing can harm you. Consider that fear is simply the sense of danger. But when you have perfect confidence in the great Creator and His purpose for your life, when you trust in Him completely, there will be no cause for fear.
God has a plan for your life and He says it is not to harm you, but to prosper you and give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Once you convince yourself that there is a good plan for your life, and that the opposing thoughts must be a delusion, you will gradually lose the sense of fear and gain the courage you desire.
“Nerve us with incessant affirmation. Don’t bark against the bad, but chant the beauties of the good.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Affirmations Create Power
Determine today not to harbor anything in your mind which you do not wish to become real in your life. Every time you feel a sense of fear coming over you, replace it by saying something such as the following affirmation:
‘I am absolutely fearless; I am strong and courageous because the Lord is my God and my helper; I am more than a conqueror and always triumph in Christ.’
Do not entertain a weak or fearful thought. Instead replace them with confident, hopeful, optimistic thoughts. If you form the habit of affirming to yourself bold and courageous thoughts, as soon as a sense of fear arises, you will be surprised to see how quickly you can change the whole course of your thoughts. And when this is changed, the feeling will change also.
You will begin to increase your courage and confidence, and this is half the battle. You will soon find that your environment will begin to change. Hope will increase and you will have a healthier outlook on life. Your thoughts, instead of depressing your mind, will be a perpetual encouragement of courage and confidence that drives out fear.
Now what? Discover the wonderful advantage available to you by starting out every morning with the mindset of affirming the confident and courageous person God created you to be. Let affirmations create a powerful force that make it difficult for any discouraging and fearful thoughts to take over. Overcome fear and strengthen your courage with powerful affirmations.
May your mind be filled with courageous, confident affirmations and your life full of growing prosperity!
God bless you –
