Read the affirmation below aloud. Loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and notice how you feel. Feeling better? Repeat this affirmation at least twice a day – morning, and night – for 21 to 28 days.

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.

I have the answers.

I have confidence in my knowledge and wisdom. I already possess many of the answers that I am seeking. I make sound decisions when I listen to my inner voice.

I face my past.

I take responsibility for my actions and recognize patterns that I want to change, knowing that I have the power to change them. I find gratification in my accomplishments and the challenges that I have overcome. Reviewing my successes inspires me to keep learning and growing.

I accept my feelings.

I treat myself with compassion when I am angry or sad. I look for the underlying causes so I can address them. I examine my beliefs. I revise assumptions that hold me back. I choose to interpret situations in a way that helps me to move forward.

I pay attention to my body.

Healthy habits help me to stay fit and manage stress. If I seem ill or feel less than my best, I take time off from exercise and strenuous activities or see my doctor.

I respect my needs.

I care about my physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and make each aspect of my total being a priority in my schedule. I take care of my physical, mental, and spiritual needs with the intention of building up my strength and my ability to handle whatever comes my way.

I evaluate information and consider feedback.

I discuss ideas with others and keep up with the news that can enhance my life. I am confident in my ability to discern what I should keep and what I should toss aside related to the information that comes to me. I am grateful for outside assistance while I determine what is suitable for me.

I practice mindfulness.

Increasing my self-knowledge and awareness allows me to hear my inner voice clearly and distinctly. I screen out distractions and clarify my values. I connect with my faith. Spiritual teachings guide me and provide a foundation for my convictions.

Today, I listen to myself. I look within to find guidance and answers.
