I was first introduced to the power and importance of affirmations in the spring of year 2015, when I would go for long walks first thing in the morning (5am!) to help my body recover from an injury.
Also during this period, I was studying immensely for my exams, and working on the AVINSoR project (A Visually Intelligent Navigation System for Application in Robotics – check out my GitHub).
Soon the long walks became 5 mile runs… and the 5 mile runs became 8 mile runs… which became the occasional half marathon.
I began these walks listening to Robin Sharma’s The Leader Who Had No Title on Audible – a book I highly recommend to anyone serious about their ambitions and becoming the best version of themselves.
The fable imparts, amongst other things, the importance of:
- consideration of the use of finite time we have available on this earth,
- routine and daily rituals.
Robin not only describes what to do, but also, how precisely to do it.
Here are some pictures I took during my recovery.
Below, you will find a collection of resources that provide thorough insights into the art of affirmations.
I would suggest you view and assess all resources – to create a process that will work for you.

(affirmations are a positive feedback loop, you can increase their effectiveness)
