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.

I make the best out of any situation.
Every situation has advantages and disadvantages. I choose to focus on the advantages. When I find an advantage, I do what I can to utilize it to the best of my ability. When I live my life this way, I can be happy nearly all the time.
In the past, challenging situations would sometimes get me down, changing my attitude for the worse. But when facing a challenging situation now, I immediately look for the positive. There is always something positive in every situation – something to celebrate, something to learn, or confirmation.
While some circumstances are indeed unpleasant, I make the best of them. They provide perfect opportunities to simply focus on the most positive aspect of the situation and to ensure I retain the lesson, not the challenge.
When facing a difficult situation, I ask myself what I can do to make it more enjoyable – or at least bearable. There is always a silver lining. I also enjoy helping others through challenging times. Helping others takes my focus off of myself.
I affirm and believe that better times are ahead.
Things always get better. Today’s challenges only serve to make the future more enjoyable. My best days often come after negative situations.
Today, I seek out the positive aspects of every event. I find opportunities to smile. I make the best out of any situation.
