I like both of those definitions. You are making a positive assertion on what you believe. You will repeat your affirmation in a true, confident way, to show your strong belief in this new life concept. WORKS for me! How about you?
By repeating your affirmation over and over, for many days, you are telling your subconscious this is something you truly believe in.
At some point, somewhere around 20 days for most people, the subconscious accepts this new belief and makes it part of you. No longer do you need to think it, it is you. That's the beauty of affirmations! They become what you want yourself to think on a daily basis.
