Re-Creating Your Self by Christopher Stone

This column concludes our discussion of affirmations as a tool for personal change – a vehicle for becoming the person you want to be, living the life you desire.

Once again, readers, it’s time to open your Re-Creating Your Self notebooks, this time, for an affirmative action adventure.

STEP 1: Open your notebook to your Blueprint for Personal Change Adventure.

STEP 2: One by one, review each of the new beliefs you want to accept.

STEP 3: On a blank page in your notebook, copy your new beliefs, one after the other, leaving several blank lines after each belief. You’ll use these blank lines to write an affirmation.

STEP 4: Applying the guidelines below, create an original affirmation for each of the new beliefs you want to accept.

STEP 5: Use your self-created affirmations daily, as described in the previous columns.


(1) The best affirmations are short and sweet, no longer than two sentences.

(2) Effective affirmations are phrased in the most positive manner. For example: Don’t affirm, “I’m clumsy, but I can change.” Instead, declare, “I’m poised, centered and in perfect balance.”

(3) Always affirm your self in the present tense – as if the new you already exist. Don’t write, “I will learn to love myself.” Instead, affirm, “I love myself now, just the way I am.”

(4) Remember to choose words and phrases that feel right to you.


Lee, who shepherded you through a previous Adventure is again your guide, providing the format you can use to successfully complete your adventure.


New belief: When I’m ready, I can have a relationship, or even a second marriage, that will be happy and meaningful.

Affirming my new self: My desire for happiness attracts happy, meaningful relationships into my life.


New belief: My ability to make successful changes doesn’t decrease with age, and that includes my ability to change careers.
