“Your life is a reflection of your assumptions.” –Noah St. John
This is an interview with Noah St. John about his new book,“The Book of Afformations.”
If affirmations haven’t worked try “Afformations” instead.
Afformations are positive questions that spur the subconscious mind to search out and create the reality you desire based on supplying the answers to these questions, or “afformations.”
1. Can you explain the difference between an “afformation” and an “affirmation?
An affirmation is a positive statement of something you would like to be true in your life.
For example, a classic affirmation is, “I am rich.”
The problem is, when most people say “I am rich”, the very next though in their brain is, “Yeah, right!”
The problem is that most people don’t believe the positive statements they’re saying.
That’s why I invented Afformations, which are empowering questions that activate your brain’s embedded presupposition factor – which means that when you ask a question, your brain is wired to start searching for the answers.
Editor’s note: Instead of using the affirmation “I am a rich,” here’s an example of an afformation: “Why do I allow myself to be as wealthy as I’ve always wanted ?”
2. What is it and why do most people have “success anorexia?”
Success anorexia is a condition that causes people to starve themselves of success. Symptoms of success anorexia include self-sabotage, holding yourself back from success, and driving down the road of life with one foot on the brake.
3. Why are Afformations the “missing piece to an abundant lifestyle?” Will they cure “success anorexia?”
I discovered Afformations on the morning April 24, 1997 in The Shower That Changed Everything when I asked myself a simple question that changed my life…
“Why are we going around saying statements we don’t believe, when the human mind automatically responds to something even more powerful?”
That’s when I invented Afformations – empowering questions that immediately change your subconscious thought patterns from negative to positive.
I think the people who will benefit most from The Book of Afformations are the people who have already spent lots of money on every self-help or “money-making” program out there… but still feel stuck.
That’s because Afformations have helped over 250,000 people in 178 countries to make more money, lose weight, improve relationships, and find peace of mind faster, easier, and with far less effort.
4. How has using Afformations affected your own life? Can you give us some examples of its benefits?
Thousands of people have written to me from around the world, thanking me for giving them “the missing piece” and the “secret sauce” to an abundant lifestyle.
While I couldn’t pick one single story out of the thousands, one of my favorite real-life Afformations success stories comes from Susan, who came to us “penniless” (her word) and $56,000 in credit card debt. She had also spent tens of thousands of dollars on every “self-help” program out there, but was definitely struggling.
She heard about Afformations from a friend and decided to try it. In less than 6 months, Susan had found a job as a TV producer for a national television show, had built a six-figure income, and has just finished writing her first book.
We also have stories of people who have used Afformations to find the love of their lives, grow their business, get more clients, and find freedom and happiness.
5. What impact will following the Afformations System of: Ask, Afform, Accept & Act have on readers’ lives? Should readers expect to see changes in their lives and if so, how quickly?
Afformations aren’t magic; they’re science. The irony of Afformations is that every person on Earth is already using Afformations – they just don’t realize they’re doing it.
Also, many people are skeptical of “self-help” teachings because they’ve spent lots of money on other programs that haven’t produced the results they were hoping for.
For example, Brandon was an insurance salesman from Salt Lake City. He had spent over $30,000 on every self-help program under the sun… but he was still stuck, broke, and making less than $1,500 a month.
After he heard about Afformations from a friend, Brandon decided to try it – even though he was very skeptical. But the results were amazing. In the first 30 days of using Afformations, Brandon’s sales tripled.
And by the end of the year, his income had increased more than 560% over the previous year.
Have you tried affirmations? What were your results? Are you willing to try afformations instead?
