You can’t produce magic in your life until you learn the luminous arts of a real magician.

Robin Sharma

With the way the world is evolving and how everything is changing; it is obvious things are tight, tough, rough and disjointed in every ramifications.

However, staying on that lane is something this write-up intends to caution us from.

One of the secrets that every successful individuals have harnessed to push beyond the beginning of their stories is the power to make declarations upon their desires and essentially their life.

Everything that will ever come to fruition in the life of a successful person stems from statement either write on paper, speak to people or say to themselves.

Why Affirmation?

Affirmation can be so powerful that it holds the key to unlocking the doors to your own abundance.

Considering the stories of most people we celebrate today, they have continually passed through the test of self affirmation.

Before they were known in the world, they had firstly told themselves whom they are and made themselves known to the world through what they do.

Raise your affirmation; increase the quality and values of what you say to yourself everyday until you get your set goal.

The place of curiosity

Affirmation, if it is been cultivated and made an integral part of our every day living, it helps in nourishing someone’s thought.

If you offer your mind the intuitive mental resolution that something can be done; it’ll spring up curiosity which according to Andy Maslen, “is the driving emotion that pushes us to explore our world.”

Remarkable examples

No matter where you are right now in life; regardless of your position, social status, academic qualifications and the professional titles you might have earned, you can still achieve more, when you are relentless in unleashing the power of affirmation.

Les Brown aptly noted that “You don’t get in life what you want, you get in life what you are.”

This is the notion that pushed Nelson Mandela to make himself the front-runner in putting an end to apartheid in South Africa.

Most of the South African leaders never see it realisable. But Nelson Mandela affirmed to himself that it is achievable and in reality until it was!

Many people never believed that Rwanda would ever recovered from genocide that sent it on the throes of ruins.

But out of sheer positive resolve and declaration to oneself, Paul Kagame is transforming the lives of Rwandans and restoring their image admirably!


Whenever you are framing a statement in your mind, let it be a statement that carries enough power to push you towards your goals, not the one that will weigh you down.

Instead of admitting to people’s opinions or assertions that it cannot be done, keep telling yourself that you can do it.

“Everything is always impossible until someone does it.” Nelson Mandela.

Tell yourself that the purpose you are being called to serve cannot be denied. It is never too late for you to do it. You can still do it.

Ademola Adeoye charged that, “If you can see a day that you will be celebrated, you will never allow what you are going through right now to cause you to throw in the towel.
