This is the story of your life. Just keep right on knocking at the doorway of your consciousness until every “no” become a “yes”, every negation an affirmation, every fear a faith.
The Law takes us at our own valuation; if we say ‘Yes’, It says ‘Yes’; and if we say ‘No’, It says ‘No’; for It can only reflect.
Om Vardhanam Namah: I nourish the universe and the universe nourishes me.

Affirmations are like screaming that you're okay in order to overcome this whisper that you're not. That's a big contrast to actually uncovering the whisper, realizing that it's a passing memory, and moving closer to all those fears and all those edgy feelings that maybe you're not okay. Well, no big deal. None of us is okay and all of us are fine. It's not just one way. We are walking, talking paradoxes.

Jesus Christ Himself said, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Mark 11:24 – see The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments: King James Version (see other versions of the Bible)
It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.
Claude M Bristol (1891-1951) author of The Magic of Believing and TNT: the Power Within You
To make every little thing special is to grant a magical quality to your life. Once your life becomes charmed in such a way, whatever blocks you may have experienced in the past melt in the light of that inner energy pouring from your heart. From a businessman’s point of view, this is beautiful, for everything you touch turns to gold. Further, it helps you to believe in yourself. In seeing worth all around, you make your every act an affirmation of your strength.
from The Trick to Money Is Having Some!, by Stuart Wilde
To think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral down into ever increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one of the things that discipline – training – is about.
James Clavell, in his novel, Shogun
This is going to sound crazy. Say yes to everything. Accept all offers. Go along with the plan. Support someone else’s dream. Say “yes”; “right”; “sure”; “I will”; “okay”; “of course”; “YES!” Cultivate all the ways you can imagine to express affirmation. When the answer to all questions is yes, you enter a new world, a world of action, possibility, and adventure.
