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.

I embrace the opportunity to try new things.

New experiences and encounters are the joy of life. Each new experience makes me bigger, even those experiences that are less than enjoyable at the time. I learn from the setbacks that occasionally happen in my life. I use the wisdom gained by dealing with setbacks to add to my resources and be prepared for the future.

I enjoy meeting new people.

Connecting with others adds tremendous excitement and meaning to my life experience. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from others. Each new encounter provides the possibility of finding a new friend.

I enjoy the slight discomfort I sometimes feel when trying something new. I interpret that feeling as excitement. I am so lucky. Each time I try something new or meet a new person, I can feel excited. This results in seeking out new experiences and people.

A person’s life is a series of experiences. To deny new experiences is to deny living life to the fullest.

I seek out new experiences to help me create a satisfying and complete life.

I have learned the most from others and from my experiences. I seek knowledge and understanding. New people and experiences are the keys to understanding life at the highest level. My evolution is influenced by my experiences.

Today, I am doing something new. I am also meeting at least one new person. I am open to new people and experiences. New experiences are exciting to me.
