We talk a lot about affirmations and how they program your subconscious mind. It’s important that you always affirm things in the present tense.
Let go of the idea about affirming anything in the future. Time is really just a meme that we created to make scheduling easier. The only real time is the eternal now. Affirming things in the future tense always keeps them just a little ahead of you, always to be reached, but never manifested. So set goals for the future and pick deadlines. But affirm and live in the now.
