Assurance of everything will be fine:

Often, when people are heard saying “everything will be fine” to themselves regarding their problems, they do not honestly believe it. They use it as some informal affirmation. Even if they get convinced that it will be fine, their brain is searching subconsciously how everything will be fine. When a solution is found out, the brain will be presenting it to their conscious mind. You may be thinking that the answer came out suddenly of nowhere, but actually, the affirmation made it feasible.

Believe that you always get whatever you require:

Start using this affirmation and see how you do not anymore feel like your life is lacking anything. You would not feel anymore that you do not have sufficient money, clothes, and a good car. Once you start to use this affirmation, your brain will reveal to you that you are constantly fed well, have clothes, sleep under a roof, and have sufficient money and dear ones to ensure that nothing will change. Every expression of gratitude starts as affirmations.

The common thing between all these affirmations is they are regarding your way of thinking. They are never related to any external physical condition. Regardless of how great your affirmations are, sometimes the exact situation you are trying to affirm will not be coming about. Unlike any external situation, your mind will be under your complete control. Indeed it is the only thing that is completely under your control. You can use them to change your way of thinking, and thus, using them for controlling any instability is a wastage of time. Change your way of thinking and have your life changed.
