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.

My words and actions dictate my character and show others what I am truly made of.

I am committed to maintaining a positive outlook and generous attitude.

Even the most frustrating situations are manageable when I stay positive. Instead of viewing a situation as disastrous, I view it as an opportunity to create a positive impact. My ability to shine exists because of my dedication to keeping my head held high.

People in my life are rarely intimidated by me because they know that I am honest and open. It is easy for them to come and discuss anything with me. I am happy to share my wisdom when asked, and I’m empowered by the trust shown in me by people in my life.

Maintaining a positive outlook means that I am expecting a favorable outcome from each situation that I encounter. As a result, I look on the bright side of situations and intentionally expect positive resolutions.

I find quick solutions to the challenges I face.

Generosity is the formula for building strong relationships. Before beginning a conversation with someone, I remind myself to listen and share generously from within my heart, my knowledge, and my spirit.

As a generous listener, I am open to the expressions of others.

It means staying away from imposing my personal beliefs on those around me. Sharing generously also has a positive effect on my communications.

People easily identify my true, authentic nature when they first meet me. I ensure that the first impression I relay is one that shows my commitment to constructive conversation and uplifting communication.

Today, the strength of my soul guides my journey of positive living.

I embrace each chance I get to make a positive impact on someone else’s life. To touch someone else positively helps them, but also empowers, recharges, and helps me.
