Benjamin Franklin said "Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances."
I don't think there is anyone alive who doesn't want personal happiness. The definition of "Happiness" is a varied as there are people seeking it. But one thing everyone has in common seeking happiness is that it begins in the mind. it is a mental effort.
Thoughts of the mind are what this blog is all about, promoting personal daily positive affirmations. Achieving a positive affirmation is going to make you happy and as we know positive affirmations are all about what goes on in the mind.

There are infinate influences that affect our health for good or bad. Many we have control over and many we don't. In most health issues we have control over our mind and thoughts.
Most medical practinioners will recomend a good attitude when facing a medical problem. Positive affirmations are a great way to try to stay positive. Notice I said "try and stay positive". Chronic illnesses and life threatening health issues are very difficult but that's when you need a positive mental attitude more than ever.
Just as symptoms can ebb and flow so can your attitude. Positive affirmations can be a good way to remind yourself how to stay positive.
For affirmations to work they need to be specific so when creating your affirmations remember to understand what the words mean to you. For example, what does "positive" mean?
Here's a positive affirmation: I am positive today. If you say it over and over, that's nice but what are you saying to youself? What does positive mean to you. It really doesn't matter what the dictionary says it means, it's what it means to you that matters.
In my health battles here is my list of health related affirmations:
I am positive today.
I am making it through the day.
Today is all that matters. (one day at a time concept)
I will grow today inspite of the pain.
I am blessed to have these experiences.
I am happy today.
I will shower today.
I will get dressed today.
This broken leg will only keep me down for a few months then I will run and jump and jump and run...
My health is a state of mind:
Although my (Chronic Fatigue) "use whatever the illness in parenthesis" slows my body, my mind is free as a bird.
My illness doesn't define me, my attitude and thoughts define me and they are good thoughts.
What works for you?

There is a famous quote in the circles of philosophy by Socrates that says "the unexamined life is not worth living."
Is this true? From the circles of Affirmation thinkers I suggest it is a true statement.
Those who use personal positive affirmations do so with the intent of making their lives better.
If we think that our lives could be better though the use of personal affirmations then we examine our lives to see what need improving. many people spend there life looking for meaning and fail to examine themselves in the quest. St. Augustine said ti best with this quote: "People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering."
If we really want personal affirmations to make us better or to improve ourselves then we must examine ourselves and then set goalson what we feel needs improvement and then employ the use of positive daily affirmations.

The word success can have as many meanings or personal definitions as there are people thinking about success. For affirmations to work about "success" you need to define what success means to you at at least to the context of the affirmation.
Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy inwhat you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have innerpeace. And if you have that, along with physical health, youwill have had more success than you could possibly haveimagined. ( Johnny Carson)
Every positive effort I put out there, I will be equally rewarded.
With positive thoughts and feelings in my mind I have created success.
I am successful!
I enjoy success everyday.

Reality is the state of things as they actually exist and you have the power to manipulate your reality by the way you thing. We hold that thoughts precede actions and action change things.
Based on this supposition you are the creator of your reality if you have the desire to be proactive.
You create the events of your life through the beliefs your mind creates. Choose your beliefs consciously and carefully aimed at the reality you are seeking. Don't get bogged down by the work involved becasue if your joyfully seeking to change your reality then work isn't a burden but a stepping stone to the new reality.
You have the power to change and choose your beliefs.
I am replacing my limiting beliefs and replacing them with beliefs that will change my reality.
My reality is for my choosing.
I control my destiny and can change my reality.
I have the power to change my future
I will change my future by the choices I make today.
I am in control of myself.
Many say that opportunity is when chance and luck meet preperation. There may actual be some truth to that saying except it is passive and you could wait a life time for chance or luck to happen. I propose that real opportunity at least from the stand point of proactivity is when you have prepared youself and then you draw on what's in you and then you go for it creating your own opportunities rather than waiting for them to come to you.
OPPORTUNITY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS
I am prepared, I am willing to act.
I create my own opportunities.
I will not wait for opportunities, I will create them my self.
OPPORTUNITY POSITIVE QUOTES
The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It isnot in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone. (Orison Swett Marden)

There is the kind of happiness inherent within our soul and the kind of happiness achieved by going to the amusement park that creates a short thrill forgotten as soon as we gain out equilibrium. This post is primarily talking about the happiness that resides deep within our soul as a wellspring that we can draw from wheneverwe feel we need it.
We can get so caught up in the rush of the day to get things done that some positive daily affirmations repeated often and aloud when possible can start the ball rolling towards the inner happiness we all want. Positive quotes on happiness we hopefully help us realize the importance of happiness in our lives. Making our lives all the more rich and fulfilled.
There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do. (Freya Madeline Stark)
But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads? (Albert Camus)
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. (Albert Schweitzer)
Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory. (Albert Schweitzer)
Why not let people differ about their answers to the great mysteries of the Universe? Let each seek one's own way to the highest, to one's own sense of supreme loyalty in life, one's ideal of life. Let each philosophy, each world-view bring forth its truth and beauty to a larger perspective, that people may grow in vision, stature and dedication. (Algernon Black)
We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. (Anne Frank)
Happiness: We rarely feel it.I would buy it, beg it, steal it,Pay in coins of dripping bloodFor this one transcendent good. (Amy Lowell)
Happiness belongs to the self-sufficient (Aristotle)
Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others. (Buddha)

A single word can conjure up many different connotations, expressions and feelings. A single word can invoke emotions, attitudes, motivations.
They can help you remember, which is why they are used in advertising. A single word like "strength or "love" can have meanings at many different levels according to your needs and situations. A single word can reflect an attitude, a desire, a hope or a affirmation.
There are many different web sites that sell sterling silver affirmation jewelry charms. There is one we endorse WWW.SilverAnimals.com due to it's full and complete inventory of affirmation jewelry pendants.
These sterling silver affirmation jewelry charms are about 7/8" round and engraved on both sides of the affirmation band. They are hallmarked as true .925 sterling silver.
These affirmation jewelry charms usually have one word engraved on it but some pendants have two or more words engraved depending on the affirmation band. These affirmation charms are fantastic to represent key words for affirmation phrases or power words.
The great thing about this line of jewelry they carry is that they provide a trendy fashionable yet classical (sterling silver) jewelry that can speak to the sould, help with attitude or remind of affirmations you're using.
They have appeal on so many levels, for instance, one is engraved with "Survivor". This affirmation pendant could speak to one wearer as a badge of courage surviving an abusive situation, to another it could represent the win of Cancer. I know of some who wore that Survivor necklace as motivation during cancer. It was a motivational reminder of the very real passion that they would beat cancer. They did!
The nice pictures on the left side of this blog give many examples of how these affirmation charms are used on a necklace chain. There are over 160 affirmation charms on SilverAnimals.com to choose from.
Have you tried any of these affirmation charms? What was you're experience?

Find it - It shall certainly be restored to thee, either by God or men. This is added to prevent an objection, and to quicken us to the duty enjoyned. After - The return may be slow, but it is
sure, and will be so much the more plentiful.

Positive Quotes for Success
Success is subjective concept.
What might be success to one person may be consider a feeble attempt to someone
else. To make positive affirmations effective you need to define what your
definition for the keyword(s) is/are for a particular positive affirmation. One
individual may define success as making $10,000.00 daily where someone else may
define success as going to bed at night with a conscience void of offense toward
Using this positive affirmation as
an example: "Success isn't everything, it's the only thing." First of all you
usually want your affirmation to be strong, powerful and motivational. Everyone

perspective which is different for everyone.

These affirmation statements are powerful phrases like "I can change..." or "I will change..." they are not weak statements like "I hope I can change..." Or "I think I might be strong..."
Affirmations are based on "thoughts precede actions." Taking a quote from the Bible, "As a man thinketh, so is he." Proverbs 23:7. If something happens to make you happy or positive it registers in your mind which can spread over your body in a positive way. However it all starts in your mind.
Affirmations help us by motivating us to change. Positive Affirmations can strengthen our minds or help us be motivated to strengthen our bodies. Everything we do starts from our minds. They are Power Words to represent motivational or inspirational thoughts.
We have .925 Sterling Silver Jewelry Charms that are called Affirmation Charms. They are circle shaped pendants with usually one or two words engraved on both sides of the round charm. These Affirmation charms are 2.7 grams of solid sterling silver. They are about the size of a quarter or about 7/8" round.
Using these affirmation pendants to represent your affirmation thoughts you can wear them on key chains, bracelets or as zipper pulls.

Anyone who has studied the concepts of positive affirmations knows the power they have. This post has no desire to dispute that statement. But there is more to success and positive attitudes that repeating powerful positive affirmations.
The last post published yesterday talked about the limitations of affirmations. We tend follow the concept of Christian based affirmation philosophy.
Some people believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Some believe in a "higher power" others call it the Universe. Most people believe in some form of God.
When we find ourselves in a situation where the traditional affirmations seem to have stopped working or we find ourselve in a place where there are no good affirmations that is when we turn to that God who gave us life. We humble ourselves and ask for guidence. The quest for seeking after Gods help must be done with submissiveness or humility and a commitment to following the promptings we recieve.
This reminds me of a little story, you may have heard it differently but that concept is the same.
There was a man who found himself in a deep hole filling with water. He needed help. He prayed asking for help. A while later someone came along and threw done a rope and yelled down to him "grab hold and climb out". The man in the hole say no thanks, help is on the way. A while later someone came along and dropped a ladder down and said climb up. The reply was the same, no thanks. Help is on the way. The man drowned and when he met with God he asked why didn't you helped me after I prayed for help. The Lords reply was, I did, twice.
When we turn to the God who gave us life for help we must keep our minds open and be willing to take the help He is willing to offer.
I'm also of the opinion that one of the ways the Lord helps us is by using a positive mental attitude to deal with the tough parts of life. Positive daily affirmations can certainly make that come true.

Affirmations are powerful words, phrases, verses and stories that reinforce or reaffirmation attitudes and qualities within us. To determine what they can do we will first look at what they can't do. Then when we have the proper perspective of their limitations then we can see just how powerful they are.
If you search the Internet for affirmation related keywords and concepts, the books and tapes they try to sale will tell you that with the power of affirmations in your life you can do anything or be anything. This isn't true. Let's take a reality check.
I don't intend to offend anyone with these examples but let's consider a few examples that me be to obvious but make the point.
Conside a small person (Little People Big World is a favorite show of mine and shows what positive thinking can accomplish) but can a small person with the power of affirmations become a Quaterback for the NFL? No matter what the affirmation they try to use, it just won't happen.
Could someone confined in a wheel chair for the rest of there life ever how to play Major League Baseball? No.
Can a little girl grow up to be President of the United States? That is quite possible where it wouldn't have been heard of forty years ago.
So if your sitting in your wheel chair repeating the positive affirmation "I will be a NBA All Star" with all the conviction and belief possible you're wasting your time.
Now that we can see that not everything is possible with the power of positive affirmations, let's examine just how powerful they can be.
You're sitting in your hospital bed having been told that when they take the bandages off your eyes you may be blind for the rest of your life. Some would say that the power of positive self talk could help the body heal the eyes so you will be able to see. I won't take issue with that because I have been blessed to see many miracles in my life time.
Fast forward with our example and you come to find out your blind. The power of positive affirmations can make or break the power of your future. "I am strong", "I am a survivor", "I am at peace" etc. These types of affirmations will get you on the right track.
Fast forward a few months and you're learning brail or learning to work with a seeing eye dog. Positive affirmations can keep you motivated. They can help you achieve. They can keep you positive. With a positive attitude you can do almost anything, you can overcome almost anything.
But let us not forget that being at peace within yourself regardless of the trials and challenges you face physically or mentally, is a powerful and valuable thing. It's a great starting point.
Inspirational Quotes and Thoughts
I was in my cardiologist waiting room and they had a nice quote but no credit was given to the quote. Here it is:
Count your blessings by smiles not tears, count your age by friends, not years.
Another quote I saw on a toll painted wall decoration with out any credit given to the author:

I find many positive affirmations from the Book of Proverbs and the Psalms of the Holy Bible. Here are just a few:
Wisdom is the principle thing: Therefore get wisdom and with all they getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7
Serve the Lord with reverence and rejoice...Pslams 2:11
But Thou O Lord art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head. Psalms 3:3
For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in sin: neither shall evil dwell with three. Psalms 5:4
O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me. Psalm 7:1
Use the Bible, both Old and New Testaments for affirmational inspiration.
