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.

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.


Even on my darkest, most challenging days, I know that the sun WILL eventually come out.

That belief in “silver lining” moments takes me through challenging times that stress my emotions and my authentic belief in myself. I attest to the fact that each difficulty – no matter how tough, will soon be forgotten when I tap into the power of positive thinking and follow through with intentional action.

I recognize that demanding times call for resolve and courage – and I have them in abundance.

When I display strength, I can rise above the challenges. That ability turns the difficulty into success.

I avoid worrying about hard situations that confront me. In time, a solution to any uncomfortable matter always presents itself.

I use disappointing occurrences as learning experiences.

The lessons I learn prepare me to overcome future trials. Simply lamenting over disappointments rarely gives me the wisdom and strength to prevent them from happening again.

I use my strong, positive attitude to shape my future.

I maintain a mindset that brightness awaits me after even the scariest period of darkness. When I take that approach, I religiously get the result I expect.

Today, I banish worry from my life because it is worthless. I choose, instead, to believe in silver linings. My decision to take the high road of positive thinking is powerful. I know I can shape my future by redefining my expectations.
