Strengths of being first-born: Conscientious—reliable—accepts
responsibility easily—organizer—tends to become oriented to needs or
feelings of other people around them
Weaknesses of being first-born: Stubborn—perfectionistic-driven—moody—skeptical—tense—tends to look for flaws—critical
To overcome limitations, use the following suggestions to make
affirmations: To make affirmations powerful: state them in the present
tense only, be positive, be specific, begin with “I”, state the affirmation
as if it were already accomplished to avoid wishful thinking, and keep
them free from condemnation or criticism.
For example, say “I am free of fear.” Not ”I’d like to be free of fear.” If you have a belief in God or a Higher Power, use that belief in your affirmations.
Avoid focusing on one narrow solution. Instead open yourself up to the
solution for the greatest good of all concerned.
Affirmations have the power to replace years of negative thinking. Combining affirmations with creative imagery gives anyone the ability to create positive transformations in her/his life.
In a little booklet named “It Works”, R.H. Jarrett suggests starting with
a small goal or idea in the beginning. A specific amount of money for the first request is the easiest to start with. Write down this request in a simple, straight-forward way, such as, “I will be receiving $10,000.00.” It is recommended that this statement be read aloud several times throughout the day.
Many people write these requests in a journal or they can be recorded
into a cassette player.
