Affirmations For Success

Hi Reader,

I’ve been thinking about  people who are obviously happy, moving steadily toward their goals, and experiencing success in their endeavors. (Hopefully I’m somewhere on that list too…) It’s given me the idea for a next article called “Think Like An Athlete and Radically Change Your Marriage”.  Mind you, I know very little about the mechanics of professional sports, can barely tell the names attached to the sport, i.e.:
Are the Bruins hockey or football? It’s pathetic, but I do somehow know a thing or two about sports psychology, that’s right up my alley! So here’s a sports tool you can easily use in your own life, even if you’re not about to attempt your own bobsled run in the olympics:
AFFIRMATIONS:  An affirmation is a positive declaration of a condition you’d like to exist, stated positively in the present tense, using the personal pronoun “I”.
For example:
I enjoy weekends with my partner.
I love my husband’s cooking efforts.
I feel happy in our new home.
I enjoy teamwork with my spouse.
I deserve my partner’s attention.

It may seem hokey, but affirmations are a great tool to prime your brain for relationship success through positive visualizations. Try it!

About Susan Lager

ABOUT ME Susan Lager, LICSW, BCD I grew up in New Rochelle, a suburb of NYC, lived in Manhattan for ten years during college and graduate school, and escaped the madness for the wilds of Maine to be with Thom, the sweet man I'm still married to after 34 years. (We have an awesome 29 year old son named Alec who will run the free world someday). I knew I'd survive the relocation from New York when I discovered the scenic, historic little city of Portsmouth, on the coast of New Hampshire, with its winding streets, great restaurants, and music everywhere. I was especially thrilled to attend the Portsmouth Psychotherapy Institute, an offshoot of the B.I.P., where I did post-graduate training, and then went into private practice creating The Couples Center PLLC, doing psychotherapy, with individuals, couples and groups. In 2010 I opened a division of the practice called COUPLESPEAK™, providing live and online coaching, training programs, workshops, and written materials for people in different kinds of partnerships. I'm still passionate about the work, which is NEVER boring! My clients are courageous pioneers, and they've taught me lots I'll pass on......
