Are goal setting affirmations important?
I would give that question a definitive, “yes”.
Sometimes affirmations can be a mixed bag. They can help some people, but will give give others a false sense of ‘mission accomplished'. But goal setting affirmations are a little bit different.
To achieve goals one of the important factors is to stay aware of your goals at all times and do all the little things that will help you to reach your goals. When you use daily goal setting affirmations it keeps your goals right where they should be: in the front of your mind.
Regular use of goal affirmations will help to condition your mind to help you achieve the goals you have set. After all, setting goals is not the hard part, sticking to your goals and achieving them is the hard part.
It takes planning, focus, perseverance, foresight, dedication, visualization, and hard work to achieve any worthwhile goals. Affirmations help you achieve the focus and visualization parts of reaching your goals.
(Side note: One of the best ways to get what you want from life is to create and set SMART goals. To get started, check out this post, which provides a step-step blueprint on setting SMART goals.)

Confidence Affirmations to Combat Procrastination
Lack of confidence plays no small part in procrastination. Many of the reasons people procrastination on getting things done is that they are unsure what to do and if they have done well enough.
