How To Make A Positive Affirmation:
(Or how to do/be/have/grow anything you want!)

1. Think of something you really want to achieve or change in your life for the better. (Think carefully - this is the most important step!)

2. Turn it into a simple, short sentence that is positive and in the present tense. Something like: “I am confident, honest and a good friend”.

3. When you’re happy with your affirmation, find a quiet place to write it down on a page at least 20 times just before you go to bed. Every time you write a line, try and create a picture in your head, imagining what everything in your affirmation looks/feels/smells/sounds…even tastes like!

4. Repeat step three for 12 nights. Be strong and try not to skip a night or change your affirmation halfway through!

5. At the end of your 12 nights of writing and visualising, put your pages away and forget about them. Don’t expect anything miraculous to happen overnight, but with a bit of luck, you’ll start noticing yourself achieving your affirmation little by little as time goes on!

Try it - it works!


You can do anything you want
when it’s good for you
and good for everyone
There’s no need to wait just activate
Do what you can with what you’ve got

You can be anything you want
When you is who you is
playing your own part
It’s alright to listen to suggestions
But just be who you are.

Cos it’s gonna be right
It’s gonna be right
Put your mind to what you want
Write it down every night
Cos it’s gonna be right
When the time is ripe
well, you can’t go wrong when it’s right

You can have
anything you want
when you realise
the best things aren’t things at all
and what you have
improves with gratitude
So just love what you’ve got

You can grow anything you want
if it feeds your soul,
and anything beyond
You’ll have way more
if you share it ‘round
So give it everything you’ve got!

Cos it’s gonna be right
It’s gonna be right
Put your mind to what you want
Write it down every night
Cos it’s gonna be right
When the time is ripe
Well, you can’t go wrong when it’s right
