Read the set of related affirmations below 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.

Whatever life may send my way, I know I am strong enough to conquer the task. I am thankful for my resourcefulness, resilience, and strength of character. Because of these attributes, I can make the best of all situations.

I have learned a lot over the years about how to live resourcefully, and I have many tools at my disposal. My creativity is an enormous asset to me in resolving any issues in my life. I am adept at finding innovative solutions and resources.

I use the assets I have at my disposal with ease and confidence.

If I ever feel challenged in any circumstance, I take just a moment to analyze the situation and tap into my experience and knowledge to help me plan a course of action.

I nourish and affirm myself – I am strong and capable.

Whether I need rest, food, a listening ear, or even just a hug, I promptly attend to my needs. I know exactly how to restore my strength, satisfy my physical hunger, and empower myself emotionally. I use my experiences to build on my reserves and to remind myself just how capable and accomplished I am.

If a situation should resolve in a way that I find less than desirable, I trust in my own ability to make the best of it. I take pride in my accomplishments and keep the lessons I learn from my challenges. I am centered and strong, and I refuse to let temporary setbacks derail my overall progress.

Resilience is a characteristic that I strengthen by living and thriving through all kinds of things, and I continue to cultivate it by opting to face my challenges with a positive attitude.

I am confident in my ability to make the best of any situation.

Regardless of what happens in my life, I have the power and knowledge to choose my response. Since positivity is a critical part of the life I want to live, I elect to face situations with a smile on my face. I stand strong and optimistic regardless of which way the wind blows.

Today, I am thankful for all the blessings in my life.

I cultivate resourcefulness and resilience, gratitude, and strength. Each day, I commit to making the best of every situation that comes my way.
