The 3 Magic Words for Success & Happiness

Hot on the heels of my recent Gratitude Gifting, I’m preparing for another annual event that’s become something of a happy tradition in my life and my work.

Because it’s…

End of Year Review season!

A perfect time to pause and assess.

To reflect on how things are, and envision what could be…

Over the last few years, I’ve developed a step-by-step guide to the most beneficial end-of-year review practices – designed especially for us creative types. (See below if you’d like more details.)

But I’ve come to realise that a potent refresher can be as simple as focusing on what may be the most overlooked – and yet most reliably effective – affirmations ever:

Thank you.

Proven Affirmations For Success & Happiness

Every time we say thank you, we’re affirming the receipt of some kind of blessing.

Every time we cheer hooray, we’re affirming our enjoyment of a wonderful experience.

These potent affirmations are like magnets to even more blessings and occasions to celebrate.

So much so, that these two sentiments are recurring themes throughout much of my work – I’ve shared many musings on the creative power of gratitude and celebration. (I explore them in-depth in herehere and here.)

Because they can be such potent practices on the path to success.

But perhaps even more importantly, they can also be such simple upgrades to our lives in the present.

And there is so much magic to be found in increasing our enjoyment of the journey.

The Best Affirmations: How To Harness The Magic

If you’d like a quick and easy way to align your year with the best of your life, I highly recommend giving some quality time and devoted attention to these simple affirmations, ie the practices of gratitude and celebration.

Here are a few quick prompts to help you:

What’s your favourite way to feel and express your gratitude?

How can you do more of that?

How do you love to celebrate life’s victories great and small?

When can you schedule the next celebration?

These are such simple ideas to ponder, yet their lovely benefits can ripple throughout the rest of the year and beyond.

So if you’d like to take a moment to pause, assess and get any wayward goals and dreams back on track, I invite you to discover the best ways for you to affirm these two sentiments in your life.

“If the only prayer you ever say
in your entire life is thank you,
it will be enough.”


“Celebration is a party
thrown in the name of gratitude.”
