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.


Ahead of me lies many possibilities for wonderful things to happen. I avoid using my age as a barrier to accomplishment. Youthful exuberance comes from within. I use it to enhance my drive to go after goals.

I am as young as I feel.

I use that belief to push myself to achieve career and education objectives, and important life goals.

The world is full of those who are younger than me, but I avoid feeling intimidated. I am willing to share my authentic knowledge and wisdom with those younger than I am to help them benefit from my experiences.

I also know that there are people older than I am who are deserving of respect, and when I can talk with them and gain from their beliefs and experiences, I will take the time to do so. Knowing that there is a wealth of wisdom in their lives and that I am blessed to listen to them helps me to strive to make those connections.

When I open myself up to new knowledge and the growth that results, it keeps my brain active. An engaged mind is youthful and energetic. I can think quickly and accurately because I exercise my powerful mental tools.

Physical fitness is also important to me. Taking the time to keep my body healthy is worthwhile because I am worth it. No matter what my current level of fitness, there are things I can do to help increase it.

Although my body is less flexible as I age, I will be intentional about keeping it fit and healthy.

I commit to daily exercise and healthy eating. The challenges of life are more manageable when I commit to living healthily at any age.

Today, my youthfulness of mind and heart comes across in my interactions with others. I embrace my age and the experience that comes with it. I am also happy to be able to live as if that age stays the same.
