Read the set of related affirmations in this post aloud. It’s important to your conscious and subconscious mind to hear the affirmations said in your own voice. Choose one or two of the affirmations from the set to start working with. You only need one or two affirmations, used consistently, to make a substantial change in your life.

Affirmations are most effective when said aloud. Studies have proven that it’s impossible to think a negative thought and make a positive statement aloud at the same time. Use this principle to halt negative thoughts in their tracks and turn them around.

Say your chosen affirmation loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and take notice of how you feel as you begin and as you continue your practice. Feeling better? Repeat your chosen affirmation at least twice a day – morning, and night – for at least 30 days, and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

Affirmations are powerful, positive sentences that can change your mindset. Don’t focus on challenges and lack, but on healthy self-esteem and unshakeable self-confidence. You can leverage the power of affirmations in your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days to permanently change your mindset and by extension, your life.

There are many positive truths in my life, and they give me the drive to keep pursuing my goals.

My success stems from focusing on the good things I have in front of me.

When I am upbeat, I use my energy to do good. I am committed to learning new things and expanding my horizons.

Doing well at work or in my business pushes me to keep achieving milestones. Each target I hit results in greater confidence in my abilities and the opportunity to tackle another goal. I learn more about my potential when I intentionally pursue my dreams.

It is better to recognize my strengths instead of focusing on my weaknesses. My positive attributes remind me that there is much I can be successful at. I spend time thinking about what I can achieve and building the confidence to go after the things I want.

I avoid doubting my capabilities and taking on feelings of hopelessness.

There is little benefit to be found living in a negative zone – instead, I put my energy toward improving my skills, developing my authentic self, and working to remain positive in the face of challenges. My spiritual life is strengthened by my positivity, and I relish the gains I make in my everyday life.

My blessings are countless. I am able to receive many blessings because I find them, even during the most trying situations.

Today, I believe that my ability to experience positive outcomes is dependent on my mindset. My focus is on maintaining a positive attitude and changing my life for the better. Keeping my eye on the prize ensures that I will endure all trials and come out ahead. I am determined to win – and by my own definition, not someone else’s.
