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.

Comment below that you’ve started this process. Add entries in your journal each day as to how you’re feeling. Note the positive changes you’ve made and celebrate them! Send me a note using the contact form and let me know how you’re doing!


My level of wisdom grows each day.

Every day I learn something new from a diverse array of sources. My wisdom grows when I open myself up to the lessons all around me. The world is my classroom and each person I encounter has the potential to be my teacher.

When I remove pride and prejudice from my mind, I allow myself to learn freely. From the youngest infant to the most seasoned adult – many people can teach me new and important things. I give myself the gift of understanding when I accept that knowledge can be found in the most unusual places and sometimes where I least expect it.

I grow in wisdom and understanding when I humble myself with the thought that I cannot know everything. Accepting this fact lightens my load and helps me to actively seek more knowledge.

I am a lifelong learner and a student of life.

My life’s lessons have made me well prepared for what I may encounter in the future. I make wiser decisions each day based on the knowledge that I have attained through experience.

I choose to live my life with my head held high, no matter what mistakes I’ve made.

The mistakes of my past are in my past and I have learned from them.

Today, I allow myself to learn from the most unexpected teachers to grow in wisdom and understanding. I choose to treasure the lessons of today, to make better choices tomorrow, and to freely share my knowledge with future generations.
