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.

Choose one affirmation that feels easy to you and choose another that generates resistance or disbelief. The idea is to practice extending your current self-imposed limits and encourage growth.

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. Repeat your chosen affirmation multiple times a day for at least 30 days and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

You can change your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days can permanently change your mindset and, your life.


Changing myself is the most effective way to change my life.

I have control over who and what I am, and equally importantly, who and what I am becoming. I create my life and my world. I have authority over my reactions and I can change at any time. Changes within myself lead to changes in my environment and help me get closer to my goals every single day. 

I have the power to create and control my destiny. I am free from the belief that forces outside my control dictate my life. We are all creators and destroyers with the ability to choose our experiences. I choose experiences that build on my strengths, help me conquer and overcome challenges, and expand my learning and knowledge.

There are times when doubt creeps into my mind, but I am able to remember the truth. I spend more time thinking about what I have accomplished and my dreams for the future than what others would push me to do, say or be.

By transforming myself, I can turn any situation around.

I reinforce my agency and my authority over my life by remembering other challenging situations I was able to overcome. My efforts have brought positive change, and I remember that they helped me build authentic strength and commitment to building the life I want to live. These memories give me the courage to transform myself in authentic ways that feel right in my heart and in my spirit.

I keep a list of my desired and achieved qualities. I review the list whenever I need to, and imagine myself already possessing any missing characteristics. I am surprised by how I can quickly evolve into a more effective version of myself.

I am free from limitations. I am evolving. I do not fear change or transformation, because I am driving the process,

Today, I am taking the necessary steps to transform myself in positive ways. Transformations are the key to creating positive change in my life. The life I desire is quickly coming to me. I am prepared for its arrival.
