Introduction: The Story of Power Affirmations

For several years, I have studied many success related materials. First there were books, then tapes, then CDs and seminars. A few years back, I was listening to one particular program on CD. One of the things I liked about it was that when I came across an important point, I could hit the repeat button and listen to this small section over and over again. I found this significantly improved my understanding and application of the concepts.

I began to wish that I could cut through a lot of the “filler” in the programs and listen (and re-listen) to just the most important points to me. Then it dawned on me that it would be even more powerful if I translated the points into personal affirmations and recorded them on CD so that I could listen to them over and over again.

As I thought about it, I decided that I wanted to focus on six basic areas:

1. The power of affirmations. The purpose of this was to impress upon my mind just how powerful affirmations were.

2. Creating a powerful self-image. Being able to put myself into a peak state at a moments notice.

3. Setting and achieving goals. Success means the completion, attainment or achievement of some specific objective. If you want to be successful, you must lean how to set and achieve goals consistently by design—on purpose.

4. Health. What can be more important than excellent health? Health is certainly supported by good health habits (eating, exercise, rest) and a positive mental attitude. I wanted to condition my mind to follow good health habits automatically.

5. Relationships. You cannot have great success without outstanding relationships with other people.

6. Wealth. This is what most people focus on when they think of success. And certainly when they think of affirmations. Wealth is important, but not the most important objective. Actually, wealth is more of a result of success in the other factors.

For the next couple of months, I went back and reviewed the books and audio programs that had the most dramatic impact on my own thinking and created affirmations in these 6 areas. I developed a simple formula to infuse these affirmations with as much emotional power as possible.

After I finished writing out the affirmations, I decided I would record them so that I could put them on CD with different tracks that I could listen to again and again. I tried a few home recording methods, but I just wasn’t satisfied with the quality even thought the recordings were going to be just for my own use. Up to this point, I hadn’t considered sharing them with others.

I checked around and found a recording studio in Hollywood that I could rent for a modest amount. Over period of about 5 hours, I created the recordings.

As I began to listen to the recordings in the days afterward, I found that they were almost exactly what I was looking for—concentrated positive content I could listen to repeatedly. I say almost because I found myself distracted by some of the breathing and clicking sounds. It’s amazing what a studio microphone picks up.

So, I purchased an audio editing program and in my spare time I painstakingly went through the recordings and removed all of these extraneous noises. The editing took about 6 months.

When I finished, I had exactly what I wanted: concentrated, positive content that I could use to condition my subconscious mind to create the results I wanted in my life.

Why All This is Important to You

As I began to see dramatic positive results in my own life from using the recordings, I decided I had a responsibility to share them with as many people as possible. I’ve already done the work of writing and recording the affirmations for you. Now you and others can enjoy many of the same benefits I have experienced just by downloading and listening to the recordings. Listen to them often and application will follow automatically. And with consistent application will come positive results.

Of course I know that this is not the definitive course on success. I see these recordings as supplementary material. These affirmations, and affirmations you create for yourself following the same patterns, should be used in addition to reading, listening, and studying some of the terrific material published by other authors. In fact, whenever you read an important book, I suggest that you use the Power Affirmations technique to make certain you condition yourself to regularly apply the knowledge you receive.

Why did I write this E-Book for You?

I used to provide this information in different pages in my website. I have decided to replace those pages with this e-book instead. Why did I do this?

1. I think this information is more valuable to you in sequence. With the web, I couldn’t control where people entered my site or if they would even be exposed to all of the information. By providing it to you in an e-book, at least I know you have it all.

2. I wanted to provide people with a means to be able to print out the entire book for further study. The internet is excellent, but is not always printer friendly. Because this e-book is in a PDF format, printing is now easy and consistent. You can print out only the pages you want to study, or you can print out the entire book at once without having to visit and print out each web page individually.

3. I wanted to provide people with an additional way to share the power affirmations with other people. Having it in an e-book format means you can send it to your friends with links to the files in tact. The power affirmations website is now visited by thousands of people every month. This is no longer just one of my personal affirmations, it is now a measurable fact. What is really exciting to me is that many of these people live outside of the United States. Positive thinking knows no barriers of nation or culture.

With your help, I believe that over the next few years (maybe even sooner), this e-book can reach over 1 million people. This is the target of one of my current affirmations. Just stop and think about this a minute: 1 MILLION PEOPLE. And it all grew from the seed of a simple idea. A thought. Thought is how we create new ideas and products out of nothing.

Just to be clear, this is not about me and my book, website or recordings, this is about helping as many other people as possible. This is also about setting an example of possibility: if I can do it, so can you. What could you write about and turn into an e-book? The internet is opening all kinds of new opportunities for all of us.

4. I wanted to create the text I needed to convert this book into an audio file using synthetic speech. I have discovered a software program that does a decent job of converting text into speech and wanted to offer it to people as an additional way to get this material (more about this later).

You won’t find any of the audio files in this e-book. If I did that, the file size for the book would be huge! But there is information about how you can download them. Some of these files are free and some are available for a very modest fee (i.e., the Power Affirmations).

Your Help is Appreciated

With the help of others, the Power Affirmations website has now been visited by thousands of people from all around the world. As of March 2005, I estimate that over 75,000 people have visited the Power Affirmations website. That may not sound like a lot in the world of the internet, but this is based solely on the search engines and word of mouth—no advertising. That’s about the same number of people who attend a major sporting event.

My primary goal is to help as many people as possible. I cannot do this alone. I need your help. All I ask is that you share this e-book and the website with 5-10 other people you think will benefit from the affirmations. Just one positive thought at the right time can change someone’s life.

Thank you in advance for helping me to help other people. That’s really what this is about. You cannot help other people without also helping yourself at the same time.

What you won’t find in this e-book are the new articles that I have published in my online “blog.” I post new articles a few times each week, so you will want to check back often at

Some of the recent topics include:

• The Power of Courtesy and Kindness

• Use Value and Cash Value

• Affirmations Based on “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”

• Increasing Money by Conquering Personal Fear and Greed

• Alkalize Your Way to Health

There are a lot more articles and topics to come.


Here is what you can do to spread the word about Power Affirmations:

1. Email this file to a friend (you should ask them first!).

2. Send them a link to where they can download their own free copy.

3. Print out as many copies as you like.

4. Make your own recordings or buy the MP3’s I’ve made at Using recordings of some sort is the most powerful way to use Power Affirmations.

5. What positive topic can you write about and create a website and e-book? Your only limit is your own imagination!

Together we can fill the world with positive thought.
