I've never tried doing these but I think it is worth a try.

I want to believe in this but sometimes it is just really hard too.

I don't think you can really convince yourself of something you don't believe, just by saying it out loud a bunch.

Mine aren't and it's because if I ever use affirmations, which, admittedly, I rarely do, I literally just say a sentence out loud and then expect an abundance of good things and feelings to come. I need to actually start consciously changing my thoughts to reflect my wants.

For a while I tricked myself with affirmations, but like Aleta said, you can't just tell yourself, your subconscious has to believe it too.

Yes, for now, but Aleta is right. It requires a balance between what you are saying and what is deep in your subconscious.
