Affirmations will help you be more positive and confident. Since I started doing them, I feel so much better about myself. It really changed my mindset. In this post I’ll share my favorite affirmations that I think will help you too!

What are affirmations?

Affirmations are (positive) sentences you repeat to yourself in order to influence your (sub)conscious mind. They will consciously make you feel more motivated and energetic and subconsciously influence your actions, choices and habits because of the mental images that accompany them.

Shoo, negativity, shoo!

The mind is a powerful thing. We may repeatedly tell ourselves that we aren’t good enough, that something is not going to happen or that we should just give up, because it’s all no good. That kind of negativity will actually happen because you think it and then start to believe it. Don’t let negative thinking hold you back in life!

No positive things can come from a negative mind.

Turn it around

Fortunately, we can do something about those negative thoughts. By carefully choosing the affirmations you need the most, you can train your mind to think more positively. Therefore, you will (sub)consciously change your behavior and the choices you make for the better.

Unnatural

At first, doing my affirmations felt kind of unnatural. It feels a bit weird to say these seemingly overly confident things about yourself. However, this feeling went away quickly and it started to feel more comfortable saying them out loud because I felt they were becoming more and more close to the truth. I actually became the person that I was describing in these positive sentences.

The Miracle Morning

For me, doing affirmations really made a difference. I started doing affirmations after I read the book The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod for the first time. This book is packed with great tips on how to create a better, more positive life for yourself. I’ve been doing this morning routine on and off for almost two years now. Affirmations are a part of the routine’s Life S.A.V.E.R.S. (Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, Scribing). Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a copy of this wonderful book!

I had never heard of affirmations before, but they immediately piqued my interest. What if changing my mind to be more positive was really as easy as repeating a few sentences everyday?

Affirmations

Anywhere, anytime

Well, it actually kinda was that easy! Of course, the rest of the routine also helped a great deal with starting my days in a better way. However, I feel that the affirmations are the best part of it. Even if you’re not a morning person and have no intention of getting up a minute before you really have to, doing affirmations is still great. You can do them anywhere, anytime.

I honestly can’t believe how much my life changed over the past 2-3 years. I went from being in the worst place you can imagine to being a genuinely happy person. At this point, I can’t even imagine ever feeling that miserable again. I am not afraid of ever relapsing anymore. I feel in control and that’s a great feeling!

My affirmations

So, what are those affirmations that changed my life for the better? Well, dear friend, I’ll tell you. I hope they will help you be more confident, more positive and more successful too! I believe they will.

I will list them by topic, so you can easily find the affirmations you need the most. I like to change my affirmations every now and then to keep things interesting. 😉

Here you go:

Self-acceptance

  • I am perfect the way I am, I do not need to change a thing about myself

  • I am proud of me, of what I can do and who I am as a person
  • I am strong, nothing can get me down

  • I am dedicated, focused and motivated to reach all my goals

I recommend you do them in the morning, because you will start your day with so much positivity! You can repeat them in your head, but I prefer saying them out loud. If you do them daily you will feel the difference soon!

  • I love affirmations! I have a whole YouTube channel about them. 😉 You’ve listed some really nice ones here…my favorite is “I am proud of me, of what I can do and who I am as a person”. Very nice!

  • I’ve never done affirmations before because I felt a bit shy talking to myself, but recently I came across a sleep podcast filled with positive affirmations, and it made me sleep like a baby and feel great! Might try these out if I get the courage !!

  • Loved this compilation! Affirmations are an easy and efficient way to get all those positive vibes in and let go of the negative ones. I love the self-appreciating ones since I feel we can only spread love when we love ourselves enough and those do the trick for me. Again, loved this <3

    • That’s so true. I feel the same way about them! So glad you liked it.

  • Know what I’m going to do?
    Write all these affirmations on post-its and stick them around the house and at work.
    Really need these right now.
    Thank you Maud for sharing these daily affirmations!

  • I really like affirmations. I started using them after my therapist told me about them. I actually made my own affirmation cards and I’m thinking of making a tutorial on them on my blog if people want actually want it.

    I try to look at them every day, putting them in a visible area in my dorm. I think they’re really helpful in having a more positive mindset for myself. I like them because it forces you to think in the present, which is better, like, ex. “I am ___” or “I possess ___” as opposed to “I will ___” or “I wish ___”.

    I truly believe everyone should have at least one affirmation to say to themselves. They really are good to have.

    • That’s great! I think so too. They’re a powerful tool! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  • At first it feels super weird but it gets better and easier every time. You can really feel the change in you. Very accurate post. Thank you :)!

  • Lovely list of positiveness you have here. Thank you 🙂

  • I love this post so much, going to try doing this and see how it goes! Great post 🙂

  • The only affirmation I use is ‘I can do it’ I repeat it to myself in my mind every time I find something I am struggling with. It all started when I was climbing a mountain, and I’m scared of heights! I just kept say I can do it I can do it and I did it!!

    So I have it tattooed on me on Korean ‘난 할구있어’ nan hal soo ees
    Soh.

    • That is beautiful! I’m really glad you found something that works for you!

  • Kat

    I think it is really important to use affirmations. I like the ‘I am successful’ one.

  • I really love this, it’s a beautiful mentality to have! I think my favourite has to be any of the self-acceptance ones, it’s something I’ve struggled with!
