First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do

A belief is something you regard as true, either about yourself or the way the world works. Our beliefs may not always reflect the reality. Yet the belief in oneself, in one’s ability to achieve something can turn into reality once we start reaffirming it. This requires firm belief in oneself so that determination and hardwork takes root. It is always what we are thinking and wishing in life that reflects in our action.
Every successful person has used affirmations, knowingly or unknowingly. Some have acknowledged it, some haven’t. In order to get positive results from affirmations, repeat as often as you can and think about them and this routine can lead to positive difference in outlook. Auto suggestions are not merely ornamental but something that can change our negative vibes to positive ones.
If you begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be there is nothing stopping you. Believing there is a solution paves the way to a solution. These repetitive words and phrases are merely methods of convincing the subconscious mind that what looks impossible in a given situation can indeed be achieved once we think hard for a solution and a way out.
Constant repetition carries conviction. You talk to yourself. You have developed few affirmations to repeat and these affirmations give energy to electrify you. Some of them can be as innocuous as these viz.,

I will buy new home before the end of year

I will travel at least to nine countries in coming 12 months

I will buy new farm house in coming three years

I am positive and confident individual

I will lead a life consistent with moral values

I will be role model to society by showing my exemplar way of living

Affirmations give you inner power and energy to move forward. These push you back on the road on which you wanted to travel but were half-hearted to proceed. Situations can change or you may be suffering from breakdown or you believe your values and style is wrong. Yet in situations as these you could do with a lot of positive affirmations. Get on with your reaffirmation as it gives unlimited power to lead. It creates road of success for you to travel.

Scott Reed asserted, As long as you know what it is you desire, then by simply affirming that it is yours — firmly and positively, with no ifs, buts, or maybes — over and over again, from the minute you arise in the morning until the time you go to sleep at night, and as many times during the day as your work or activities permit, you will be drawn to those people, places, and events that will bring your desires to you.
My personal observation is even if you want to walk on your chosen path committed to values and vision yet varied situations can be created by people around you. These hamper your power to lead with a pre-fixed idea or ideology. Here, affirmations become your real friend to direct you to the target.
Tony Alfonso said, when you miss a shot, never think of what you did wrong. Take the next shot thinking of what you must do right.
Believe there is a solution and it will lead you to find solutions changing your destiny. To win the world, first win your mind. You need to be powerful after breakdown and failures. What counts is coming up for the next day with the next try every time.
Our subconscious minds need training as it cannot tell the difference between reality and the imaginary. What we continually think eventually manifests in our lives.

What Sidney Madwed said rightly sums it up: Can you develop relationship with mind and have fruits throughout the life? Remember, your mind will never let you down. You could walk forward on the path of future with relationship with mind. Your minds have capacity to create future for you. Spare few minutes every day and live with mind. Initially, it could be hard but later on you would experience that it is so easy.
